I had my follow up yesterday with Dr. Cofranceso, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciated the thoroughness of every step in the process of my appointments and interaction with the staff. I have been very impressed with Dr. Confrancesco's bedside manner and explanations of the findings on each of my procedures. I am grateful to him and the lovely staff at GI North.
