    Did not feel he was thorough or took situation seriously
    in San Marcos, TX |
    Doctor disinterested and distracted. Nurse was a bitter old woman who went out of her way to be rude. Would never recommend and will not be returning.
    in Temple, TX |
    This is my second colonoscopy with Dr. Tay and he is exceptional. His staff is first rate and Amanda is the greatest...I highly recommend him.
