Seen Bernheim 3xs now. 1st 2 appts regular checkups.Bernheim asked a few questions & quickly finished the visit with, ok, all good, see you in 2 years.Then I had a trip to the ER, extreme abdominal pain, cramps, loose stool.CT showed evidence of possible enteritis. I followed up with Bernheim.When I showed him CT, he literally shoved the papers aside & said he's not interested in that, tell me your symptoms.So I did, but he was short with me, not interested in my opinion, kept cutting me off.

Was seen by him pre and post endoscope and colonoscopy. He was very short with his answers, almost sarcastic. At one point tells me everything is just fine. When I'm leaving I say to him that means I'm good for 10 years. Meaning that I'd follow ACS guidelines. He THEN tells me I need to be checked every 3 yrs. What you have needs to be checked more often. Two minutes prior I was told he found nothing!! Never was told what I had. Follow up with gastro. guy in next county great.
