Nobody wants to have a colonoscopy. I did put it off. Silly me, it was not bad at all. Every person I encountered at the facility went above and beyond for me! They were all very professional, kind, caring and courteous! I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone that will listen to me. Thank you for making an uncomfortable procedure comfortable. Thank you for not making me feel like a number. Thank you for making me feel like you genuinely care about me, the patient. Thank you for respecting my modesty. I appreciated the physician going over the photos and report after the procedure as well.

November 21, 2017
Dr. Palta was fabulous! I appreciated her explanation of the procedure. I wish she would have had time to go over the results with me herself. Instead, she had her Charge Nurse deliver the information.I also wish the anesthesiologist would have worn gloves when preparing the drugs for my procedure. His bare hands handling the medication bottles and syringes made me rather uncomfortable.
