Dr. Person has treated me for over thirty years. Most of the time I have been in remissive state for ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. He has me on the latest meds to keep me healthy and active . I find when I follow his instructions I get great results.

This doctor is an idiot. Do not, I repeat, do not bring your loved ones here. He has no compassion. He has horrible bed side manners. Due to the lack of his documentation, he has put my loved one's health at risk. He has lied and has tried to cover up his mistakes. He needs to leave the medical field.
