Dr Pfeffer is an excellent and caring doctor. But nurse, Bonnie Wise is useless. Pre-op visit went fine. I needed to get clearance and EKG from my cardiologist before scheduling the colonoscopy. Spoke to Ms Wise a few days later; she was going to send me revised instructions. I called the next week; told she was reviewing EKG and would call me back. I made two more calls and was again told she would call back, allowing me to schedule. No letter ever rec'd; no call back. So never able to schedule

I've scheduled colonoscopies using Dr. Pfeffer twice in the past three years and, on both occasions, I was required to first see a nurse practitioner ahead of the procedure. On both occasions, the nurse practitioner was a complete no show. Worse ye, the receptionists simply took my name until I waited long enough to ask what was going on, only to be told that the nurse simply wasn't there. I went back the first time but not this year. There are other doctors..
