My meeting with her was the greatest ever. I explained the issues I was having and she has been the only Dr that listened and she gave me a different acid perscription to see if this one will work. I have been taking the same acid pill for several years and she was the only one that listened. She also got me set up to do 2 procedures all at same time of my appointment. not having to come and do it in 2 different days. I appreciate that she is trying to help me and not just say stay on what you are taking. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I need some help in understanding what is happening in my body that causes the symptoms. she was very nice, and polite but very casual about getting information about symptoms and why they could be happening. she felt sure that just an over the counter digestive pill would really help. so I tried it for a few days and things just got worse. Nothing accomplished.

I don't feel she listened to me. She gave inaccurate information on the long term effects of PPIs and recommend a laxative when one of my chief complaints is diarrhea. It seems like she has a standard spill for all patients with diverticulitis without really listening to if they have other issues going on.
