Excellent Colonoscopy Experience

Board Certified in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine. My colonoscopy was painless. Anesthesia expertly administered. Complete report with photos presented before I walked out of his Pos Palos Salinas facility. 20 min painless procedure; total time from arrival to dismissal....less than 2 hours. Dr Carlson and his whole crew......outstanding and impressive.
