Did my STARR surgery successfully, and does follow-up colonoscopies with diagnoses/prevention measures. He also gives good advice for supplements. He deseves an A+ for what he has done for me.

When I worked at St. Mark's, this is the doctor the nurses recommended. Great doctor, am planning my second colonoscopy with him.
