Estero, FL |
I have never felt so dismissed during a consult. He is the doctor who knows it all and when you ask too many questions, the response is "Just leave it all to me, I'm the doctor"

WOW!!! This guy was Amazing in performing my colonoscopy. Chose to go "commando" with no anesthetic. Was very professional explaining everything during the procedure. Was able to watch procedure... little or no pain only a little discomfort. Excellent bedside manners. Even the assisting nurses stated he was one of the best.
