    How was your appointment with Dr. Southerland?

    Jun 10, 2022
    After 4 years of suffering symptoms that significantly limited my ability to live independently, I visited over 20 doctors in a variety of fields and remained undiagnosed. Nobody could explain my cluster of symptoms–episodes of painful bowel movements, upper back & neck muscle cramping and spikes in blood pressure that would literally floor me. I even sought help from holistic doctors, acupuncturists, ciropractors, and made diet changes. My road to recovery started acupuncture Dr Shan Liang and my great new GI Dr John C. Southerland who diagnosed me with pelvic disfunction and sent me to PT Dr Lisa Johnson. She determined I had pelvic prolapse and directed me to special pelvic reconstruction surgeon Dr Lenox Hoyte that fixed my problem. Dr John Sutherland is outstanding GI doctor that listened, very professional, knowledgeable, respectful, open minded, honest , friendly, willing to own and resolve problem. Many thanks to Dr Southerland and his stuff. I will be forever grateful.
