    How was your appointment with Dr. Etemad?

    Nov 18, 2022
    I have been experiencing GI discomfort for close to a year. I have seen several doctors and have had several diagnostic tests and have also had my gallbladder removed, yet the discomfort continued. I was eventually scheduled for an ERCP with Dr. Etemad. There were some malfunctions with equipment in the End suite which caused some delays. It would have been perfectly acceptable if Dr. Etemad chose to reschedule his cases but he did not. Rather he put his own needs aside and completed all of his cases. I was the last case and rather than meeting a tired and irritable doctor after such a frustrating day of delays, Dr. Etemad was not only apologetic for the delays, he was quite frankly one of the. kindest and endearing physicians I have ever met. He explained everything that would take place during the procedure, he made sure I was comfortable and prepared for the test. Im sure my procedure was not as severe as others, but Dr. Etemad made me feel as if I was just as important!
