Was a bit rough to get an appointment because they're busy but ended up having to do a colonoscopy once they fit me in. Dr. Awtrey overloaded his schedule to get me in for the procedure before I had to leave the country for three weeks (literally was in there four days later) and then the total bill for it wasn't as bad as I expected, With my crappy insurance, I have to pay all out of pocket but get a negotiated rate. It was basically $1,000 all in. Metairie Gastro wanted $1500+.

Most arrogant doctor I have ever met. He refused to listen to my concerns. I spent months of losing weight and waking up in the middle of the night for hours at a time. He insisted my problems were anxiety. Even after I told him how much an antibiotic helped me, he chose to ignore me and continue insisting anxiety was the problem. Don't waste your time with him.
