Had endoscopy yesterday with Dr. Johnston at the Gastroenterology Associates Surgical Center. I highly recommend anyone looking to have this procedure to consider Dr. Johnston and his staff. I have had this procedure 3 times previously with other doctors, but this was by far the easiest. Will definitely continue to use Dr. Johnston.
