Very nice and understanding. Very professional. He did the procesure about two years ago and sent it to Pietmont hospital where I am currently on the kidney transplant there. I am also on the kidney list at Shan's hospiital. Thank you Dr.Tartwater you much.

Took my wife to Dr. Tarwater with minor rectal bleeding. The kind you associate with minor medical conditions. Dr. Tarwater stated that it was probably nothing serious but would like to do a colonoscopy to confirm. Turned out to be cancer, but because Dr. Tarwater did not blow it off, we caught it at stage one. One surgery later, she was cured. When I was much younger I lost a wife to colon cancer because the doctors she had in Texas failed to take the exact same symptoms seriously.
