Roger Charles for about 15 minutes, after being referred by another gastroenterologist, without checking Mia out, diagnosed diagnosed my problem as IBS and prescribed Linzess for 30 days. After one week of taking the medication, I still had The same stomach problems. I called and spoke to Dr. Charles assistant to leave a message for him. Telling his assistant that I have taken the medication for one week and have had no positive results and that my stomach pain and other issues related had not subsided. He never called me back. After three days I called the Cleveland clinic to speak to Dr. Charles and I was connected to the doctors assistant again.
