This is the first Doctor who actually cared about me. He is kind and yes he does not just do procedures prior to performing Colonoscopies. If you can see him consider yourself fortunate.

This Doctor acts concerned about your health but don't be fooled. He's a very devious, petty person who will throw you to the wolves @ his 1st opportunity. He spent an inordinate amount of time asking questions, taking notes @ our 1st appt. He was overly enthusiastic. He instructed me to undergo multiple expensive tests & to follow his diets. I spent a month undergoing all the grueling tests - I went back to discuss the results and he fired me!! Didn't want anything to do with me! Go figure?!
