Dr. Chennot, Dr. Slivka and staff are the best

excellent care

February 13, 2019

Dr. Chennat was very nice and listened to my concerns with my bowel issues. Was pleased that she ordered a rectal manometry on March 11 at 1:00pm to see why I don't get any urge to move my bowels. However I was very very disappointed the next day when nurse called and told me they cancelled the test. Told me to drink a bottle of citrate of magnesium up to 3 times and call them in 3 months. I go a week and have no urge to move my bowels until I take something. Heard this center was the best and this issue would be addressed and disappointed that they did no test to check way I have no urge to move my bowels.
