My recent visit (September 2016) for a colonoscopy was a disaster. I awoke in recovery with severe abdominal pain. Dr. Gates appeared and explained that they put air inside my body to get a better look at my innards and that it would pass. I was discharged and sent home. After four more hours of extreme abdominal pain, Dr. Gates' staff advised me to go to the E.R. where I received 10 milligrams of morphine. The emergency room bill arrived last week...$5223.45. Thank you Dr. Gates.

I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Gates, he was great, very nice bedside manner. The entire staff was excellent, and in particular Alexandria (anesthesiologist) was just terrific (loved her sense of humor and professionalism)! Jerry Minor
