Best GI Doc Around

Dr. Rita has been my GI doctor for 20+ years. I started seeing her the year my father was diagnosed with colon cancer. I see her for reflux and IBS problems too. She has performed six scopes on me during this time with my seventh coming up this year. I would recommend her to everyone. She is kind, compassionate, and a good listener. I've had problems scheduling this year's colonoscopy. I can't seem to talk to a human! Everything requires a prompt! :(
