I had the best experience with Dr. Rex and his office staff. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Dr. Rex was very sympathetic and explained the procedure well. I am glad I researched and selected Dr. Rex for my surgery. I would and have recommended Dr. Rex to anyone with problems with your colon. It has been over a year since I had surgery and I am doing very well and have a much better quality of life. Thank you Dr. Rex!
