Very knowledgeable. Takes practical approach in addressing patient concerns. Takes time to explain. He wrote a book kind of "health manual for idiots" - about basic medical conditions for laymen. Very good book.

Everything went well. Very friendly doctor with good sense of humor in a colonoscopy situation. Procedure done at hospital. Wait time was as you would expect. Not bad experience though.
