He is all business, which I like. This is not a social visit or occasion. When a procedure is scheduled, the timing has been prompt.

This is a very bad and greed doctor. I had a colonoscopy with him and he hurt. He never explained what really going to do. He enhanced he paid removing polyps. His office staff had troubles collecting their payment from my insurance company and he immediately send me to his favorite collection...more

The Insurance covers screening colonoscopy 100 as long as the exam is normal! Since polyps were found and they needed to be removed the policy no longer sees the colonoscopy as a screening device but rather a therapeutic procedure and is no longer covered 100 but rather your deductible applies and then your usual 80/20 coverage. Your insurance co. did not cover your colonoscopy at 100 because it was not a screening colonoscopy but a therapeutic colonoscopy because colon polyps were removed.

Total joke. Talk about a money hungry individual. Nothing nice to say about him as a person or as a dr. Don't trust him what so ever.
