Dr. Alabaster abandoned my colonoscopy because the inflammation was so bad it was dangerous to try to continue. However, he would not give me anything for the tremendous pain I had been in for a month, nor would he run bloodwork, even though I was clearly malnourished and dehydrated. All he would do is continue asacol and prednisone. Three days after the abandoned colonoscopy I was in the ER near death. I would not take my pet to him for treatment. I fired him after I was admitted.

I just have to say that Dr. Alabaster and his team are absolutely amazing. Susan, the CRNA made sure I was comfortable and at ease for both my, colonoscopy and EGD. I was so nervous the first time and Susan made sure that everything was going to be okay. After my procedures (different days) they followed up with me, calling me to see if there had been any changes. I to this day can not believe how courteous and caring Dr. Alabaster's team is. I wish he was a family doctor so I could see him for
