I had no ill affects after a colonoscopy and i have had them at Brigham and Womens in Boston. I thought the experience with Dr Paiva was much much better all around.

I found Dr. Paiva explained things well. She performed an endoscopy and colonoscopy on me. After the procedures, her note to me was that everything looked fine and to make a 3 month checkup with her. I was having serious symptoms which turned out to be autoimmune hepatitis. It wasn't until I went to Mass General that I was diagnosed. Her lack of concern was very disappointing. I would never recommend her.

I saw her for a colonoscopy, she explained the procedure very well and interacted personally and personably. She phoned with my diagnosis and was immediately available for a follow up visit. She explained the findings thoroughly with a minimum of Docspeak. She provided me with a list of referral doctors and made suggestions. Her very courteous staff was efficient and helpful in arranging a referral. I was late for my appointment and they made me feel that that was not totally an imposition.

I saw Dr Paiva a few times. My liver enzymes where high. She kept telling me not to worry there was nothing wrong with my liver. I expressed my concern each time so eventually see sent me to a rheumatologist with the same attitude. I went to the Mass General and my tests showed I have primary billary cirrhosis and if left untreated I would eventually have liver failure. I also was diagnosed with lupus ale, fibro, sjogrens, and osteoarthritis. Dr Paiva should have tested me for liver diseases.
