Treats you like a "Boat or car Payment" Went for a colonoscopy and here is my entire interaction with him. Pre-Op:: When was your last Colonoscopy? Post-OP: Everything looks good. This was said while he was walking by me in the recovery area on his way to his next procedure. He couldn't even stop for 30 seconds to go over his findings. And there were some findings. It's been a month and I'm still waiting to hear from him about what he found. He also never sent the report to my GP.

I found Dr. Corkum to be the rudest doctor I have ever had the misfortune to see. His arrogance and dismissive attitude was unlike anything I have experienced from any physician I have seen. I went to him due to recommendations from others in the past. Some people change and I guess he is one of them. He needs to get off his high horse and realize the patient is the consumer and he is the product.

Will never go there again. I was required to arrive for a scheduled colonoscopy with a check for about $ 530.00. After the insurance statements started rolling in, I realized I had overpaid by about $380.00. I had to pry out of his office an admission that yes,they did owe a refund,would be 6-8 weeks for refund.! Why so long, no good answer, " the system". Almost end of May now,no refund yet!
