I really liked *Dr. Bortuzzo. She was down to earth, answered my questions and promptly scheduled me for a colonoscopy.

Dr. Bortuzzo listened well, and made her expectations of me very clear. She explained the treatment plan in a way that I could understand and she let me make the decisions. I really appreciated her being upfront with me regarding her expectations, and what I can expect from her.
