I was s little hesitant about being put to sleep but everyone there put my mind at ease. Before I knew it it was over. I read reviews about people saying it seemed like it was over before it started. I would 100% agree. True professionals and very nice. The whole process didn't hurt either.

I had a colonoscopy and it was short and easy.
