    Calm, well-spoken experienced professional. Trustworthy and that says a lot from me as I generally do not trust doctors. I also prefer women doctors but was willing to make an exception for him. Have had a endoscopy and a colonoscopy from him and both procedures went well.
    I like him and trust him with my colonoscopy.

    This doctor is responsible for my mom's death. She was sick, drastically losing weight for A YEAR, seeing him every month to find out why. Finally, mymom is on her death bed and he tests her for cancer! Yes, genius. Then he KEEPS her as HIS patient and DOES NOT SEND HER TO AN ONCOLOGIST, yelled at family who wanted her to go see an oncologist, says there'd be too many cooks in the kitchen with an oncologist involved and says he's having off-record discussions w/oncologist about it. Mom dies.
