I explained to Dr Podila prior to the procedure,I have a low pain tolerance, he said it would be alright. During the colonoscopy procedure I felt them ramming the scope up inside me over and over. I was yelling to stop, yet he continued. They said I had the maximum medication they could provide. After the procedure he said the next time he would put me under. Then I had an attack of diverticulitis, called him, he ignored me. I don't think I'll be going back to Dr.Podila.
