in Fair Oaks, CA |
I had my colonoscopy/endo at Sutter Endoscopy surgery center in Roseville, CA. From the moment I walked in, through prep, the procedure, post-op and follow up, I was very pleased. Every single RN or staff was professional, caring and upbeat. This also includes my Dr. and anesthesiologist. I felt relaxed, safe and confident I was in professional hands. The facility was efficient and spotless. I would recommend to family and friends with enthusiasm.

After I visited him for Colonoscopy. After he removed my 2 small polyps on Nov 28th, 2016. After I going home, every 30 minutes I had a bowel movement with a lot of blood came out. I thought it take 2 or 3 times only. My procedure done around 10am but the bleeding until 2 am the next day. The last bleeding around 2 am in the next day. I passed out and freezing in the toilet because I lost a lot of blood. My family call 911. They took me to emergency room. Anyways, he a horrible doctor..

New patient office visit with him in February 2016 1 of the Most Horrible physicians I have Ever experienced in my 60 years. I have Serious health issues that were Completely ignored. Complaint x3 were submitted to No avail.
in Sacramento, CA |
During the endoscopy procedure the doctor knocked my front crown out on my tooth. When I called to inform him his response was for me to tell my dentist to put it in more tightly because I will need to have the procedure often due to medical reasons and/a weak apology, well at least he acknowledge he did it. He is very dry in conversation and cuts you off when you are asking questions as if he doesn't have time. Getting a call back is impossible now. I recommend you find a compassionate dr.
