    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

Can't get past the receptionist!

Two months ago I was referred to Dr Lopes by my PCP for treatment hepatitis.It took 6 confusing weeks to work out a schedule for a colonoscopy. Linette (the receptionist) told me that I could NOT see Dr Lopes without doing the colonoscopy first. I tried to get a message thru because I felt I needed some treatment for the hepatitis sooner than that. Linette made it painfully clear, PATIENTS DO NOT SEND COMMUNICATIONS TO THE DOCTOR. If the doctor wants to see the patient, the doctor starts the communication. Well, I finally got the colonoscopy, and did not hear from the office. I called the office multiple times. Finally, I asked my PCP to call the office because my messages were not being returned. Linette swore I was lying about leaving messages. And, even WITH the done colonoscopy, she claimed I had to wait till Dr Lopes got to my records and decided to call me in. Again, patients do not request appointments, they wait till the doctor decides to invite them.My PCP told me that Dr Lopes is indeed a good doctor, and that once I got past Linette, everything would be fine. Well, I cannot get past Linette. I have found a different doctor.

I found Dr Lopes very patient and caring. I had a colonoscopy and asked a lot of questions. He was very patient and addressed all my concerns. When I came out I did not have any pain or discomfort at all.
