What Our Patients Say

I had to have a colonoscopy done. I didn’t think too much of having this done. Afterwards I was so glad I did. The SGA doctors found and removed several polyps which could have turned cancerous if I hadn’t had the procedure done. It was a piece of cake. No pain, and I’m very happy now that I had the colonoscopy done. R.W. I have been a patient of Dr. J’s for several years now. He is an excellent doctor! I have complicated medical problems but with Dr. J’s care, I am doing pretty well. The procedures are explained clearly and my questions are answered — test results are discussed with me so I understand what is going on. In summary, a kind, knowledgable and compassionate doctor! { And Dr.J, you’re easy on the eyes! } A.G.
