Rushed every appointment, untimely f/up visit

Posted on October 25th, 2017

While he ran all the right test and labs, he provides very little information on follow up. Does not want to spend time answering questions, and gives you the 'bums rush' out of his office. $$$. Also, I had to wait 6 weeks to see him after an endoscopy and didn't even know what the result of the scope was until I read discharge papers. Then the long wait to see him. Looking for another gastro.

Didn't do well by my mother

Posted on July 14th, 2015

Mother has stage 4 kidney disease. The office was way to small to maneuver with a wheelchair, and they took her blood pressure in what appeared to be a small closet - automatic cuff - and talked to her through it. It was never rechecked despite uncontrolled BP being a main problem. Dr. was talking to us then ended and went to next patient. He referred her to get a cat scan with a script instructing her to take contrast agents that would have most likely been fatal for her kidney (nephrologist confirmed) and a potent stimulant laxative despite the fact she had non-stop diarrhea and were just barely keeping her electrolytes balanced. NEVER, EVER EVER GOING BACK.

COL exam

Posted on September 21st, 2013

This doctor is awesome. Great reputation and, because of his excellent demeanor and skill, the procedure was done with little anxiety and there was zero discomfort when the procedure was over. One of the good guys.
