Dr Bornstein is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend him. He takes time to explain any and all procedures so you are able to understand in layman terms.

I was seen and given a 3 week regimen of OTC meds and told to return and he would help me with my problem in his office. I done his regimen, returned to an ultimatum of I needed to do a colonoscopy since I had never had one at my age of 45. I told him due to my AVM and 3 aneurysms I would do it after my radiation closed the AVM. He told me he would perform it without sedation or anything, but I could handle it. I refused, and he refused to help me. Worked in hospitals 16yrs, never hear of this!!

Dr. Bornstein explained the evaluation of the ct scan. He recommended a conservative approach with medication as opposed to surgery (a different application for a surgeon).
