I don't believe reviews online anymore. My surgeon had excellent reviews and he botched me. I'd just see a few gi and see if I get along
The internet sucks. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience but you ended up with one of the best j-pouch surgeons in the World fixing it for you.
I lucked out with my GI, I fired a couple of GIs before him. Now I follow him around from hospital to hospital, whichever practice he moves to. When he told me that if he or his family member ever needed surgery then this Dr. M would be who he used; I didn't look anywhere else for a surgeon.
