  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Endoscopy created severe heart pain without explanation

Dr. H did an endoscopy and within 3 hrs my heart so much, I had to go to the emergency room. He caused this severe pain doing an inept procedure, and never explained what possibly could have created this affect. Never go there. Never.

Go see anyone else!!

This was my 1st GI I had after I was diagnose w Crohn's disease 4 yrs ago, so I didn't know any better. I needed surgeries, and was dealing with horrendous amounts of pain. Dr H was by far the worst dr I've had since getting this terrible disease. He did not understand that when he put me on the reccomemded med for this illness (Remikade), all of a sudden it wasn't like magic and I was not back to normal. I have heard he has several law suits against him by a reliable source who works as a malpractice lawyers assistant. He also gave me a colonoscopy with out anestisia, or any other drug. VERY PAINFUL for someone in my condition. I would probably have law suit against him, if I were that type of person. I have had 15 surgeries since stopping his services, & they were all much needed. I would sooner treat myself then ever to back, or reccomemd anyone see this horrible doctor!

He was so bad that he just gave up on me, without a second thought, I went back to him twice because of my pain and he just gave up on me. I went to another doctor who diagnosed me with Scleroderma of the lungs and the esophagus, an awful and incurrable disease. SHAME ON YOU DOCTOR I will never refer any one to you, you have no bedside manners and you don't even try to take the time to get to know your patients. WHY DID YOU BECOME A DOCTOR IN THE FIRST PLACE????Don't ever forget that we the patients put money into your pocket. You really need to care more about them.
