Dr Lohan literally saved my life. I was stage IIIc colon cancer. All of the lymph glands (16) were also full of cancer. He performed surgery on me and was able to remove almost all of my cancer! My surgery went very well and he prescribed pain killers that kept me pain-free after the surgery. I recommend Dr. Lohan with no reservations!!! By the way, he practices at CAMC in Charleston, WV.

Dr. Lohan performed my colonoscopy. My first and I was apprehensive about the procedure. He was very prompt and professional. The procedure was over before you know it. The worst part is the day before prep. Highly recommended.
