I was told they tried to call several times. but my phone shows 2 calls one 6;05 PM and 6:07pm. no messages left so we drove 3 hours up and back for nothing. rescheduled for June 22 for another impact.blood draw and covid testing. procedure set for 23rd. had to get a hotel to stay overnightJune 22 impact study. were told no more bloodwork neededJune 23rd procedure was asked by Dr Bhatt ig I had copies from camera procedure at Sycamore hospital in DaytonExplained I was told was sent by hospitalprocedure aborted. Dr Bhatt said didnt think this was the correct procedure needed and thought if double balloon needed should go from upper to small intestine not through colonDr Bhatt said make appointment for visual. he will obtain records and review them then call me. one would that someone would have looked at my records. Dr Lashner had quite a stack of them. however it appears that noone even looked to see if the double balloon procedure was what I needed. shoddy work. Dr Bhatt did the best he could and offered to call me.

Difficulties were mostly due to the office staff of my referring physician.

Reviewed on Jan 29, 2020

He wasn't my Doctor. Only chose this appointment because my primary doctor was over booked for the time I requested. He was not completely involved in my treatment so he just kind of brushed it off and would refer it to my primary doctor.
