Had colonoscopy done. In the notes I received at discharge it stated to take a GI med. I called the office as no dosage was given to ask about dosage to date that call has not been returned. Two weeks after test was performed I called the office for biopsy results the office stated that inspite of the fact they had had results for 2 weeks the doctor had not even looked at them. I was told the doctor was doing colonoscopy's but they would give him the message. Perhaps Dr. Tilson should do less colonoscopy's so he can follow up with his patients. I also requested that based on family history a test not routinely done be performed on the gastric tissue this was never order by Dr. Tilson. I had the slides sent to another lab and this test proved postitive for a life threatening disease. It has now been 4 weeks since my test there has been no communication by Dr Tilson or his staff as the to the results of the test. RUN to another GI doctor your life may depend on it!
