Patient Comments (1)
I'd never have another colonoscopy by Dr. Thurman. I've had 3 colonoscopies. The first two were with other doctors and were as pleasant as a colonoscopy can possibly be. He did my third one and was so unpleasant!! He was rude beforehand, telling me I shouldn't even be there. (?!) After he told me I needed to go under general next time because it was clearly uncomfortable for me. Neither one previously told me this. He was in a foul mood and seemed to take it out on me. He was nasty!!
