Not going back

I had a colonoscopy about a month ago, the procedure was horrible was never like that before. I was awake and it hurt. I had a polyp removed and called twice for results and as of today I have not heard anything from anyone at that office. I am not going back there. The two nurses in the recovery were wonderful but the Dr. or anesthesiologist no way. I sit and think well they would call if it were something bad, “or would they”????
