Dr.
Fletcher Colon Specialists Provider Name Locked
gives a lot of information. He educates you. He is kind and has a fabulous staff. He will call you at night with your results. They get right back to you, they get you in if you need to get in, and they schedule with the hospital. They are easy to get to.

The place of the colonoscopy procedure was great, it was the Butler County outpatient surgery center on Ham-Mason rd, the follow-up by this medical practice on my post procedural problems only came after I had to call multiple times. I was given misinformation on two calls as to whether the Dr. Wiesenberger or his assistant was in the office. I had to become quite testy with the reception desk to get a response, I had to resort to their "emergency" number.

I have to pick up a prescription with Dr.
Fletcher Colon Specialists Provider Name Locked
once a month and I have had no problem getting it. He is an older gentleman. He has a great deal of experience and he waited to schedule procedures until after he got to know me since I was being transferred to his care. He was willing to listen to my past experiences and what was working previously. He is a senior guy in his field and he recognized that I knew what I was talking about so he listened to me, instead of charging me for all the unnecessary tests that I had gone through with my previous doctor.

He was very good, very professional, and we have been lucky that we have him to see. His availability is not excellent, he doesn’t see everyone as soon as they want to. I haven’t heard that there have been any delays, so his punctuality is very good.

He is very good. The service went as well as it could go. It was a bit difficult to actually get in to see him because he was busy. They had misplaced my records because I had gone to a different doctor who has since retired. Once they had that taken care of, it was okay. The office environment was mediocre. His staff was very good. His communication was good. He was recommended to me by my OB/GYN doctor. I would visit him again in the future if I need to. In fact my husband has already started visiting him.

She is very caring and thorough. She works through the University of Pennsylvania, which is very highly rated. The only downside to this is that it is a teaching hospital, so you might get interns and fellows for follow-up. But she gave me correct information about my possibilities, and was very considerate when treating me.
