Four years ago Dr. Chard failed to tell me the results of my colonoscopy. I had to get the report to find out what the results were. Six weeks ago , due for another colonoscopy, my primary MD referred me to Dr. Stollman, in the same group as Chard. Staff refused to make an appointment becauset Chard had to give Stollman permission first. Six weeks passed before I was contacted. So Very UNPROFESSIONAL. I made other arrangements. I would never return to East Bay Center for Digestiive Health.

I am a very unsatisfied custumer. I hand deliverd a letter on 1/23/17 to his secretary. Attached it was my itinerary for a 5 month overseas trip. In my short letter, I spelled out the ever increasing constipation I am experiencing. At my first visit, he recommended medication ( Linzess ). At low dose it didnt work at high dose it made me vomit. I left my cell phone number and my e mail in my letter hoping he will contact me to follow up the matter. No response. My only option is go to emergency
