Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is very urgent surgical emergency.

You need surgery within days.

The gangrene and obstruction can cause potential life threatening complications.

You should see a GI surgeon soon or better go to the ER.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
