Dr. Svetich may be a good doctor but lacks in bedside manner. He tried to give me a colonoscopy with no sedation. I asked for some and he only gave enough to make me dizzy but I was awake during procedure and it was very painful. Even though he knew I was in severe pain, he gave me no more. He was also very late coming to office. I was also very dehydrated but was given no fluids during my appointment and offered nothing to drink. He was also quite a smart mouth. After my procedure, I had to wait 45 minutes for him to give me results. I have always been treated great by other doctors during a colonoscopy and have always been sedated. Terrible experience. I won't go back.
