I've been going to Dr. Brugge since 1994. I had my daughter and myself scheduled for the colonoscopy and endoscopy and I had such a bad experience this time. I was very much in ort and pain with both procedures and was given less meds than the year prior and they did not spray my throat. My daughter (25) was in worst pain and was not out at all for both procedures and grabbed the bar of the bed the whole time while in constant pain. We will never go back to Dr. Brugge.

Wait time was low and he seemed friendly. Was awake for my colonoscopy and he did not authorize a higher dose necessary to knock me out. I expected fully to not remember the procedure. I remember the tube down my throats for the endoscopy and the inflation of the gas for the colonoscopy was torture. Unacceptable. I was told by the staff at my young age I should have been fully sedated. Why wasn't this mentioned while MAKING THE APPOINTMENT?

Dr. Brugge and his professional team including Laura, the AA cared for my dearest friend throughout her illness. The entire GI team including he Interventional Radiology Staff are superb in expertise, compassion and efficiency. Family members and care givers were included in explanations for the plan of care.

I have been trying to schedule an appointment with Dr. Brugge for 6 weeks and get no response after sending in my MRI results that were requested and registering at the hospital as they required me to do. Unacceptable.
