Very satisfied with this physician. Was very personable and knowledgeable. His team at St Margaret's hospital - awesome. Kurt, Gerald, Patti ... all experts, friendly and put me at ease prior to procedure. Will go back to this physician and the GI team at St Margaret's.

I would absolutely NOT recommend. I was hospitalized and he was consulted.Overly arrogant and disrespectful. If I said something he wasn't interested in he would say I am GI. I don't care about that. He would ask a question. Then he would feel he had enough info and would literally say stop...more
