How was your experience with the doctor?He asked for pertinent details about recent symptoms and told me that given the recent test results, he needed a colonoscopy to tell for sure if things are getting better. He was direct without being abrupt. He knows I hate colonoscopies and validated my concerns while pointing out the positives of having the procedure. His approach has always been caring but forthcoming about my issues. I would have gone to another GI doctor years ago had I not appreciated his approach.

How was your experience with the doctor?I can be pretty difficult with doctors. I don't assume anything. I get second opinions. I ask a lot of questions. I watch them carefully and if I don't like them, I won't go back. For example, if I have an earache, did you really just look at one ear and prescribe medicine within four minutes? Come on.... Dr Li is different. He is honestly one of the best Dr's of any type that I have visited. He takes copious notes. He speaks plainly and is extremely patient. He is serious about making every patient better, yet he also puts you at ease with a contagious smile and positive disposition. I also don't think that he'll ever lower his level of service and care b/c, at the core, he has a high level of intellectual curiosity. He's a problem solver. It's about the patient but he also has a.....passion for or obsession to figure out and treat your ailment. Thank you, Dr. Li....

How was your experience with the doctor?Love Dr. Li, but this was not my favorite facility. I had to wait behind a curtain in an open room that was very noisy and could hear every conversation with every other patient that was being prepped. The nursing staff kept asking me the same questions over and over again, and I started to wonder if they were paying attention. Maybe that was normal procedure, but I found it disconcerting.
