Made me wary

I have used him for a colonoscopy and a couple of flair-ups of diverticulosis, but probably will avoid him in the future. On the diverticulosis, he ordered unnecessary tests and was a little too keen to schedule follow up appointments. Gelfand falls into a category of business-man practitioners who make extra money by conflating agressiveness with conscientiousness. He wasn't aware that excessive CAT scans will cause about 2% of cancers.
