Patient Comments (2)
in La Vernia, TX |
I have been suffering from a hiatel hernia for 12 yrs. My pcp just kept giving e proton inhibitors and upping the dose. They weren't working. My pcp said I couldn't have surgery. Went to his office ran a series of tests and now I have had my hiatel hernia repaired. Wished I had seen him sooner. Excellent Dr takes the time to listen to your case. Doesn't rush you out of the office as you are just another copay. My mother had a colonoscopy with him and gave him praises that's why I chose him.
