Staff was good. Doctor very friendly, but not responsive to my questions, and after my colonoscopy he refused to contact me. Before the procedure, I had concerns about drinking too much liquid at night keeping me awake (prostate problems). He laughed, saying I would be up anyway. Then left the room! Visit over. After the colonoscopy, he did not appear during my recovery. I was handed a sheet of paper citing Diverticulosis and Hemorrhoids. Next day he would not take my phone call and would not call back -- he was going on vacation for a month! His staff did call me, confirming the doctor was NOT going to call me because he was going on vacation. My results were "normal" and nothing to worry about, they told me. But he did find Diverticulosis and Hemorrhoids. As he had seen these things personally, I wanted to ask about his impressions, the extent of progression, how to mitigate progression. The doctor would NOT call me to discuss.
It was easy to get the appointment time that worked for my schedule. Not only were they able to provide everything they promised me, they went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. I spend a little too much time in the waiting room. I've waited longer at other offices, but I was hoping to be seen sooner. They are so kind and caring, and they stay open way past their closing time to help anyone who needs them. They wouldn't deny anyone that needed help. I know I can always count on them. This man saved my life!!!
