FOSTER |
My mother was a healthy 69 yr old woman prior to a colonoscopy performed by Dr Opalenski in 2013. During the procedure, Opalenski perforated her colon. She was sent home and became septic. She spent has had multiple surgeries, many health complications, and at one point weighed only 60 lbs. It has been 4-1/2 years, she was just released from the hospital today after another emergency surgery. She has no quality of life, and our entire family has suffered. I would not recommend this doctor

Dr Opalanski has helped me for over 20 years. He takes his time with you and truly wants to help you unlike alot of Dr's today he listens and then will help to try and find a solution. If there were more doctors like him the world would be a much better place.
