Everyone was was very nice and friendly and didn't wait very long to get in to see the Doc...The place was very well clean..
in Spring Hill, FL |
He told me I did not have Ilietis, (a form of Chron's) yet it is shown on my ct scan twice. he said I misread it and refused to even do a biopsy to confirm. He is very one minded and whatever he thinks you have he will ignore all other issues because they were not his prognosis. Such as not treating me for any of the following disorders/issues:Gastroparesis,Gastritis,Ibs,Hemorrhoids,Diverticulosis,hiatal hernia and more.Some of these are hard to treat but he said none of these serious or painful
