Compassionate - gentle human being!

Wow! This man walks on water in his field for sure! He has an amazing 'bed-side' manner - compassionate - gentle - never makes you feel you are taking up too much time - explains well and I can go on and on. The first time I went to him, I was barely 40 with just a 'hunch' I need a colon check. I had NO symptoms WHAT so ever. Only a 'hunch'. . BUT I had family history . My mom passed away of colon cancer. He did not make me feel stupid - He agreed to do a colonoscopy and the result was ... a huge pre-cancerous pollup that luckily did not go through the colon wall yet! I told my husband that if I did not come to him with my hunch like I did , I would have possible not seen that next Xmas. Thank G_D Dr. Rothman was sent to me. He told me to warn my sybling to go for colonoscopy. I did so immidiately. She ignored my plea and 4 years later had a huge part of her colon and whole anus removed. He takes what you tell him serious. I have taken my son to him too and again, he did not just do a half half exam. He made sure his answers were backed up with proof. LOVE LOVE this man! What will I / we do when he stops practicing!?? I am already panicking!

I was a patient of Dr. ROthman's for over thirty years. Unfortunately I have moved out of the area. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his speciality. He has a great personality, is caring, and most imporant, he is a great physician. I worked in the medical field and know the good from the bad.

Colonoscopy Procedure

Dr. Rothman performed a colonoscopy procedure on me today. It went well (the preparation wasn't a lot of fun but that's the way it is!) and I would definitely recommend Dr. Rothman. The procedure was uneventful and I was in and out of the surgical center in about 2 1/2 hours. I was given Propofol so I was "out" during the procedure. Overall, it was a good experience (as good an experience as a colonoscopy can be) and, thankfully, I don't have to have another one for 7-10 years. I highly recommend Dr. Rothman.
