Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Klucka "This field is not limited to one organ - there is a variety, including colon, rectal, stomach, pancreas, gall bladder and liver. And that is what interests me. Pay attention to preventive health care. It is better to prevent colon cancer through early detection methods than to treat it."
