I recently turned 50 and was dreading the thought of a colonoscopy. My family doctor recommended Digestive Health Specialists and so did several friends. I can see why. My first visit was with a nurse to review my medical history, hear about what was involved with prepping for a colon and also understand any financial and insurance issues. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield so I was pleased to find out that because Digestive Health does the procedure in the office I would only owe my $40.00 copay. I saw Dr. Sears on the day of the procedure, he was very thorough in answering my questions and also explaining things to my wife after the procedure. The prep was a little difficult but not to bad. Digestive Health recommends a mixture of Miralax and Gatorade which didn't taste to bad. The procedure was a breeze, they put me to sleep and I didn't feel and thing. When I woke up I thought they hadn't even started. The nurses were all very friendly and really put me to ease prior to the procedure. As for the procedure, they did find a couple of things they called polyps. I got a follow up letter from Dr. Sears several days latter explaining that the polyps were not anything serious and that while they might have turned into cancer I didn't have to worry now they were found and removed. He recommended that I have another procedure in 10 years as I don't have anyone else in my family that has ever ha colon cancer. Would highly recommend Digestive Health Specialists. Most importantly, I would encourage everyone to get screened for colon cancer. It is really not that bad.

I don't typically write reviews but I agonized so much over this decision I'm feeling I need to share. I did a lot of research on fillers and battling various skin issues, and decided on going to Carolina Laser. I was really nervous. Dr. White is just a wonderful doctor and put me at ease instantly. Bonus, she does all Botox and filler injections HERSELF. I had little interaction with the nurse I had but she was friendly and knowledgeable. I do know nurses are well thought of by the foks in the waiting room (I'm already planning how I'm going to finance a Ultherapy eye/brow treatment, thanks to one). They do more than laser treatments and Botox there, so if you're worried about your skin, or how to battle the physical signs of aging, please do yourself a favor and CALL.
