Dr. 'B" Is the only doctor I would recommend to anyone having trouble with digestive tract disorders, colon or rectal problems or inflammation of the stomach or intestines.. He is knowledgeable in most areas of surgery having worked in Candler and St Joseph's ER's. He has performed nine successful surgeries on me because I had colorectal cancer. .I did have to have a colostomy. I did not have to have any chemo or radiation...I will be 8 years cancer free Jan. 5th 2018..BEST BUTTIES!!!!!
