I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy about 2 years ago. Dr Pugliese has an anesthesiologist who administers a centrally acting medication. I am going back to see him for a repeat these procedures. I now live in Birmingham but I will not go to any other physician. He is great , his team is well...more
