      Bad experience since not only him but the staff were rude, I had an endoscopy because I had really bad symptoms such as nausea, palpitations, heart burn, stomach cramps, chest pain, etc. He said he couldn't anything but a small hernia hiatal, that I needed to take omeprazole, he said I didn't have gastritis but after the biopsy was taken to the lab it showed that I had chronic gastritis, he didn't help me at all, I had to go to an specialist to find out that also I had gastroparesis.
