Dr. Dvorak has performed two colonscopies on me. The second was done without anesthesia at my request. Being awake during the procedure made me understand the procedure and the findings. Dr. Dvorak explained what he was doing and what he was seeing. A great doctor.

Get a second opinion! I had major surgery using the robot and requiring several days in the hospital . The procedure could have been done utilizing a scope. He came HIGHLY recommended and I trusted his opinion at the consult. My post surgery questions were not taken seriously. At one appointment another doctor in this group wanted to give me a cortisone shot for pain!

We chose Dr. Dvorak as a second opinion after a surgery that went wrong and was almost certainly going to end in a permanent colostomy. He evaluated and quickly addressed the problem, and we ended up with a temporary ostomy and hope for being reconnected again. Very kind, smart and caring.
