I followed the prep instructions. Had not followed the 5 day before procedure because I booked 4 days before and wasn't told to read instructions right away. I eat a very high fiber diet. I called them and told them I hadn't followed instructions. They said it would be OK. For a miralax prep they only gave my half of the necessary dosage. So the colonoscopy couldn't be done because the prep was wrong. Not happy. Not going back. Sat in the waiting room forever; these days I's rather be outside. Horrible experience. Not recommended.

I was extremely nervous about my procedure. Dr. Jackson was sweet, humorous and professional all at the same time. She had me laughing as soon as I was in the room and it eased my anxiety tremendously! I would definitely recommend Dr. Jackson!
