My experience was terrible. He attempted to have me get three surgeries for the same problem. When I asked him why I required three surgeries for one polyp he became arrogant and nasty. He never gave me a reason why he needed to perform three surgeries on the same polyp. Instead all I got was sarcasm. I will not use Philp again.

Has the bedside manner of a sour grape. I had the displeasure of having Philp perform surgery on my colon two times for the same problem. He told me he wanted to see me a third time. When I asked why I required three surgeries for the same problem he became arrogant and sarcastic. He wouldn't give me a straight answer. I would not recommend this clown to anyone.

Dr. Philip is low on my approval list. 1st he is extremely rough, being gentle or walking the patient through what he is about to do is not a quality he possesses. Zero bedside manner. When expressing the pain that I had he didn’t seem to care much and only offered a cream after significant pushing from my end. He also has patients undress while he the nurse and students stand and watch ! The solution he offered was not good as another doc had already advised me it was not an option.
