    How was your appointment with Dr. Wells?

    Mar 03, 2022
    After speaking to two other gastroenterologists, 3rd time for certain was the charm. I chose Dr. Wells. I underwent a colonoscopy without sedation, by choice. He said he would work with me to keep me comfortable. He and his team absolutely did and talked me through the entire procedure. No pain! They were all perfect! The anesthesiologist who was on stand by, held my hand through it all. A perfectly choreographed event. I’m so grateful to all of them. Highly, highly recommended!
