in Sun, LA |
Dr. Gensler probably saved my life. He listened and investigated my issues when most other doctors wouldn't have or had refused. A+++ for identifying and helping me with this condition that has such a high likelihood of developing into colorectal cancer. Thank you...
in Slidell |
Dr Gensler misdiagnosed me with Ulcerative Colitis. I was then subsequently poisoned for 2 years straight with a drug called Lialda. I went to another doctor who examined me and knew exactly what was going on. My new doctor saved my life from Dr. Gensler's incompetence. His office staff is also really rude especially his office manager. :(
