my experience is this doctor just wants to do a colonoscopy, no matter what you say is bothering you. Makes up reasons to justify a colonoscopy.

Brilliant Doctor. He was referred by a very good friend. This morning, I had my first endoscopy and colonoscopy with Dr. Schmalz, he is careful, thorough in his examination, very experienced and precise. He got a wonderful team behind him from the reception to the nurses and associates. My arm was dehydrated, my veins shot, the nurse got me “the best in the team” to help find the right vein in no time for my drip "Amazing!". Thank you Doctor, in helping us prevent colon cancer! I'm Grateful!

The doctor was very courteous and professional, but the receptionist who checked me in was rude and kind of obnoxious. Because of her I will never return to GI Associates. I mean come on lady, your job is to interact with patients, at the very least pretend to have some common courtesy.
