On my pre-procedure visit, he looked at my personal history form that I filled out and said: "there's a lot going on here." Then he asked me about my family history and if I knew what a colonoscopy was, when I replied, yes, he said: "good, then we are through." He spent a total of 10 minutes with me. It was almost 2 months before I got my procedure. Then at the follow-up visit he was again very brief and spent about 15 minutes with me. I had actually gotten my diagnosis from the nurse on the phone previous to it. He didn't even mention that I had a condition that causes a decrease in B12 absorption in the stomach. I am a vegetarian, 95% vegan. I can't afford to lose any B12 from my diet. Further, I have carpal tunnel syndrome as I work behind a computer all day. I was taking chronic NSAIDS and became very sick so I stopped taking them. He told me it was okay to take NSAIDS with omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. This medication can exacerbate allergies, which I have. It also decreased your liver's ability to rid medication from your system causing toxicity buildup.
In my opinion, he is not very concerned with his patients at all. Most doctors just want to push pharmaceuticals on you because they make huge commissions and also the expensive procedures that they perform. Does it really take a team of 7-8 people to perform a colonoscopy? I am a college educated person and if I hadn't done my homework, I would be at the mercy of these money-hungry doctors who care only about profits and not their patients' wellbeing.
