An excellent gastroenterologist. Knowledgeable, runs a very safe and efficient practice. We have been his patients for way over a decade. His bedside manner is calm, empathetic, and informative. Treats his patients as equals. Does not rush to prescribe medication. Encourages lifestyle changes before prescribing pharmaceuticals. His is lab is conducted safely in all aspects, including anesthesia options, cleanliness of scopes, and general environment. When we move will keep him as our GI doc.

Endoscopy to my duodenum. took samples and not removing the polyp which left scar tissue. The scar tissue was cancerous. required 3 endoscopic attempts to remove which did not work. Had open surgery, left a 5 inch scar on my stomach. kept me out of work for 8 weeks. have an area above my naval which appears to be herniating now. All this was after a colectomy for colon cancer. He didn't have the proper equipment and did this just for money. 2 qualified surgeons told me he was wrong to do this!
