    Does she take appointments, or is it "first-come-first-served-you're-you're-number-26-on-the-list-for-the-afternoon-clinic" appointment?

    If you call the Dr's office you will be given a number and put on a list.
    If you want to walk-in that's okay but you will be at the end of the line. She works at SUMC and ACES so you should probably call and see where she will be.

    Perhaps you could have quick word with Dr Henry Tan at Holy Child to give you a name (he is not a pulmonologist but he is a VERY trustworthy doctor) - or the 'general' doctor next to his office (next left when facing).

    I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy this morning at Ace Doctors Hospital. Dr. Junabeth Credo is the best! Her staff was also top notch.

    My partner had her endoscopy at ACE by Dr. Credo a few weeks ago and I agree fully - also the hospital facilities are better than I have experienced at either Silliman and Holy Child. I found Dr. Credo through this string, so once again many thanks Notmyrealname.

    I have also had excellent attention for myself from Dr. Danilo Olegario who is an orthopedic surgeon whom I have been seeing at his rooms at ACE. What I have appreciated is his thorough investigation into my issues, conservative approach to operating and clear explanation of what I must do in rehabilitation to avoid an operation. Following a bike accident in January, I broke a few bones, tore my ACL and patella ligaments in my knee. I can not speak highly enough of the medical advice I have received and recommend him to anyone who needs orthopedic advice.

    There must be a misunderstanding. Is this the total cost or only what you paid after insurance? What was the total cost?

    Often a sigmoidoscopy is confused with a colonoscopy. The sigmoidoscopy is much shorter. The colonoscopy goes all the way to the stomach and often requires anesthesia. The sigmoidscope is only as long as a person's forearm.

    $20.50 is an incredibly low cost for a colonoscopy.

    In the US, the rate negotiated by insurance companies is $1,400 and the uninsured is about $5K. Yes, the uninsured get screwed.
