"Me sentí muy bien. En mi caso era una gastroscopia y segundos después de ser sedado no sentí nada y desperté en una sala de recuperación donde me trataron de lo más bien, posteriormente fui a cafetería que está dentro de la clínica y a pocos pasos. El doctor me explico pacientemente los resultados de la prueba. Yo los recomiendo 100%."

"I had my first colonoscopy with Dr. Burgos and was a little nervousness since it was my first time. Within 10 minutes of arriving I was taken in the operating room and set up on blood pressure and a needle was placed in my arm for the IV. The staff was very professional and told me not to worry and touched me in a way that was very comforting and made me relaxed. I knew I had the best doctor possible. I studied the Doctor's credentials, having been in the medical business, and studying alternative medicine for about 25 years, Then Doctor came in the room about 10 minutes later giving me time to calm myself a bit more. I felt good with him. The nurse injected the medicine and that was the last thing I remembered. I went to sleep that quick. Next thing I knew I was on the gurney and woke up. The nurses checked on me and let me rest as long as I wanted. So I went back to sleep for awhile, woke up and got my head together to see the doctor. In my case I had multiple polyps and diverticulitis. Dr. Burgos then showed me the film he took of my colon and explained what was going on and what happened. Seeing that big polyp on film has made me realize that I must change my eating habits for sure. His English was very good and had no problems understanding my questions. He even took a interest in my holistic approach to health, which is very unusual for a highly credentialed western trained Dr. That shows me he is still open to learning, and that is a sign to me of a Dr. That stands out from the rest. I will be seeing him next year as I need to follow up. Without hesitation I give Doctor Burgos my highest recommendation."

"Me efectue dos estudios con el Dr. Burgos, una gastroscopia y una colonoscopia y quede muy satisfecha con la atencion brindada por el y por su equipo de trabajo, razon por la cual no dudaría en recomendarlo y volver a contratar sus servicios cuando sea necesario.

Normalmente cuando nos dicen que tenemos que hacernos este tipo de estudios nos preocupamos por aquello de que el procedimiento pueda ser doloroso y/o incomodo y en mi experiencia personal puedo asegurar que fue totalmente indoloro y en ambas ocasiones cuando me desperté despues del examen pense que todavia no habian iniciado puesto que fue como si solo hubiesen pasado dos minutos.
