I did not see him until about one minute before I was sedated for the procedures. This in spite of going to his office about 3 weeks earlier. After the procedures, he met briefly with my wife and me. Though we were able to ask questions, he did not seem very open to them. I don't think he mentioned the colonoscopy results. I felt like I was railroaded through.
