Dr Senter was heaven sent! He is a great doctor. Dr Senter walked myself and my family through the entire process making it easy for all of us. He did a great job and I feel 100%. The entire process from start to finish was easy and he was very clear. It has been a month since my surgery and I feel like a new man. I am thankful for Dr Senter and highly recommend him. One of the best in the state. Thank you so much!

I went through verification of coverage with Dr. Senter's staff, prepped for colonoscopy as requested, reported to the clinic, then after I checked in, was told that Dr. Senter could not do the colonoscopy because my insurance coverage wouldn't cover it. He came out to talk to me (first time I had met him) and blamed it on problems with insurance rather than his office/staff. My wife had taken the day off work, the prep was inconvenient and cost $$, yet Dr. Senter didn't seem to care.

Dr. Senter was awesome. He's very caring and great bedside manners. He was great! His staff was very nice too. I would recommend him to anyone. He came to visit me after my surgery and explained everything and he stayed until all of our questions were answered.

Worst doctor in my life. Almost killed me, removed 3 Hemorrhoids instead of 1 that was affected. Put me on catheter right after the surgery, because I could not urinate , which is very normal till next morning afterwords. The catheter gave a worst urinate infection. My right side testicle became like a Tennis ball, I spent another 3 weeks in the hospital for curing it. Then I had an additional surgical procedure to clean all ulcers Dr. Senter left. I would not recommend this doctor to my enemy.
