No one explained that I may have continuing pain and bleeding as a result of the procedure and no one checked up to learn how confused and uncomfortable I was. It was not a routine colonoscopy as I was led to believe.

Again Waited in exam room 45 minutes. They finally came in and said there was an emergency. If so making someone wait with no one coming in and keeping me up to date is not acceptable.

You need more NP's like Melissa. She is the first person who really talked with me about diet, meds, treatment plans. Give her a raise!
