in Louisville, Ky |
Dr. Rafson has performed a number of colonoscopies and two surgeries on me. In every instance I have found him to be professional in every area. He is my choice for any surgeries I may need in the future. I would recommend him to anyone. He takes very good care of you. Fortunately, I have not needed his service since 2014 but will be seeing him again when I have my next colonoscopy.
