Worst medical experience ever. Dr Pulju and the entire staff at Rocky Mountain Gastro are entirely negligent. He spent less than a minute with me after my procedure and walked out as I was asking him questions. I had to call the office repeatedly to get any test results. It took over two weeks from the date of my colonoscopy to get biopsy results when they originally told me it would take 5 days. Nurses gave me wrong information and office workers repeatedly gave me attitude on phone. DO NOT USE

Dr. Pulji has zero bedside manner. He barely spoke to me and my husband after my procedure. He was not interested in answering questions and turned to walk away before I finished talking to him. He told the nurse to give me a hand out on eating more fiber. I eat a ton of fiber and have no irregularity problems whatsoever. Even the nurse said she was puzzled by his request to give me this info. I would never see Dr.Pulji again.
