went to see doctor for scope. Tyson the PA explained everything pretty well. Procedure went well, but the drink to prep you for procedure is awful.

Dr. Kochar and his staff completely missed one of my symptoms after being told countless times. In result, I ended up having to pay for and go through an entire other procedure that could have been done at the exact time of the other procedure. This left me with a bill I could not pay. They also acted like it was my fault and that I did not originally tell them about this symptom. Overall, I was very unhappy.

Procedure was exactly as planned, clinic was short staffed so it was not started on time. Follow up was easy.
