On this particular visit I liked that I had a visit with the PA as well as the DR. Fenton. I had the chance to think through what has been happening through out this past year and being able to chat with both of them about it and come up with a new plan of action for treatment. I don't however, always like having the PA only, or both PA and DR. That all depends on the mood for the day. I am most irritated with I only see the PA.Over all this visit was great and painless. Purchased some probiotic to take and adjusted the med to twice a day.Thank you for the positive attitude, it helps when someone is not feeling well.

Dr. Fenton is the absolute best gastroenterologist I have ever had! He makes me feel as if my health--emotional and physical--is the most important thing to him. He's has a calming effect, and his humor makes a crappy situation bearable. Yes, the pun was intended.

I have had several colonoscopies in the past, so I knew what to expect. I would think that this experience, although unpleasant due to the the nature of the procedure, was a good one for me. Dr Fenton was helpful talking about the procdure and very pleasant to talk to.
