      He is a great doctor knows his stuff. I've went to a lot of doctors & no one could help. He figured out why I had the pain I've had for 13 years. I no longer have it. Thank you. I've sent my children to him. Both are doing better after seeing so many other doctors. I would not go to any other doctor for my stomach problems.
      He was very competent, not condescending or dismissive. After I don't know how many ER visits, 3 different GI doctors he actually listened to me and told me he was going to help me get healthy again. The other doctors accused me of drug seeking, because I was only 83 pounds I was also told I should be honest about whether I was smoking crack or meth, or shooting heroin. Within a week he did an ERCP and found out my bile duct was so narrow that the bile was backing up in my liver.

      Only physician in office which makes appointments difficult to get, and there's no one to fill in when he's out of town. Not able to schedule last minute even if having lots of difficulty with disease. Wonder if he takes on too many patients because, without reviewing files, forgets specific info about condition and makes assumptions without verifying.
