I have had several colonoscopies and two surgeries performed by Dr. Ochalek. It is quite likely he has saved my life by finding and removing polyps before they became cancers. The latest one was in my appendix which he found during my colonoscopy and then removed along with my appendix. He is a caring, kind, and personable physician who sets you at ease during some really scary times. He does not hurry and encourages you to ask questions and voice your concerns. I am most grateful that he is one of my doctors.
