Two Stars

My first colonoscopy with this doctor.........I've had dozens in my life due to taking 10 years to originally diagnose me. (other doctors) But, I've never gotten a pinched nerve after a colon exam before until this time. The pinched nerve was excruciating and lasted 7 weeks total (even went to the emergency room once for medication). This doctor refused to acknowledge side effects from the new meds he put me on also just like the other reviewer stated. And, would not even come close to acknowledging that the pinched nerve in my left front side (with the pain radiating into my hip) was from the colonoscopy. In a search for a different doctor not affiliated with Springfield Clinic.

One Star

As one of his patients you are one of a hundred a large intestines on an impersonal assembly line. My experience was that if your condition is not typical, or you experience side-effects from the medicine, you are better off with another doctor.
