Patient Comments (1)
in Pulaski, NY |
I now have colon cancer because Dr Epstein failed to take the necessary precautions during a colonoscopy last year. He stated that I had a stricture in my colon and could not scope beyond the stricture. After taking a sample of the obstruction to have a biopsy done - the results came back inconclusive - with that he ordered a barium enema which also came back inconclusive according to the radiologist. So, I was then told, I would be good for TEN years. A year later I have colon cancer!!!!!
