To put it mildly, Dr. Worsey saved my life. After 17 years of dealing with ulcerative colitis and me putting off surgery to the very last minute, he performed a colectomy and constructed a successful J-pouch that has been a godsend. The planned surgeries were a 3 part series over a course of 9 months. This was 4 years ago and so far everything is great. He's easy to talk to, listens to your concerns, and his staff/nurses are top notch.
