My internist unfortunately scheduled an appointment for me at asheville gastroenterology and the experience was an unpleasant eye-opener. The young woman enterologist never looked me in the eye and just sat with her profile to me, checking off info on a sheet of paper and scheduling a barrage of UNNECESSARY tests. She reminded me of an order taker at a fast food restaurant like McDonald's. It was apparent she didn't care about me or my medical issues, but simply regarded me as ""income source""--since I'm well insured. After about twenty minutes of non eye contact, and no wish to hear anything from me...---but eager to run up a big tab---I got up and said, thanks, I don't need your help. They have scores of young women hanging around ready to schedule ""expensive"" tests at a nearby radiology center. I've been feeling wonderful ever since. Avoid this group like the plague. Read a little Robin Cook; you'll see what I mean.
