Specialties

Dr. Lawrence W Bardawil has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Experience

I had two colonoscopies done by the doctor this past year, the second one was a disaster, I ended going to the emergency room, lots of blood lost, they had no remorse about my problem, assistants are a real problem.

TERRIBLE

This doctor was absolutely awful! He did not even recommend a HIDA scan when my pain was indicative of gallbladder disease. He just did an endoscopy and then insinuated it was "in my head"--very arrogant and insensitive GI doctor. I wouldn't send my dog to him!
