Patient Reviews (1)
Silver Spring, MD |
Was experiencing severe discomfort and pain in my stomach. I clearly articulated to Dr. Josovitz what was happening, how long, specific symptoms, medical history, etc. He sent me on my way with IBS and Probiotics samples, one of which was peppermint oil pills. Pain continued, I called another practice, they got me in immediately, scheduled an endoscopy the next day and diagnosed me with an acute bleeding ulcer that will take a month to heal with acid blockers
