in Dana Point, CA |
I appreciated that in January 2012, after performing a colonoscopy and before I went home, Dr. Chaurasia called my wife and I into his office and stated that I had colon cancer. Even though this was before the biopsy results he wanted to let us know so we could take immediate action. His statement was based on years of experience. He did not want us to wait because time was of the essence. (I was diagnosed level IIIC.) He also offered advice on what to do next. Doing this was helpful.

in Huntington Beach, CA |
Excellent pre-op visit, but on date of actual procedure they were running very late on seeing patients. Had to wait almost two anxious hours before it was my turn, although I was originally told it would be approximately 45 minutes. First ever colonoscopy and was a bit nervous to say the least. When I expressed to the doctor my uneasiness he replied, Well, there's a first time for everything. Not the calming answer I was hoping for. Procedure was also a bit more painful than I hoped for

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
