Dr. Albertson is one of the kindest and patient doctors I've ever met. He is an expert on diet and figured out why I had been suffering for years with cramping and pain. I've lost weight, symptoms are gone, and I feel better than I have in years.

I do not recommend Dr. Albertson. I prepped for a colonoscopy for two days. On the day of my appt. I was informed at the Surgi Center that Dr. Albertson was not scheduled to be at the facility that day. We found out after a meeting with the staff at SurgiCenter that there was no record of his office ever scheduling my colonoscopy with the Surgicenter which they had assured me they had done. 2 days prep and no procedure. Stay away. I wish I had.
I am terribly sorry that you were so inconvenienced at the time of your scheduled procedure. The procedure was cancelled because of a lack of paperwork between UCLA and the surgerycenter. I did not find out about the cancellation until the morning that it happened. When I found out I protested vigorously and would never turn away a patient that was already prepped. I am deeply sorry that this happened to you.
