Comments About the Doctor:
This doctor is a good listener and explains things well from a medical standpoint, using visual diagrams so the patient can understand mechanics. He does not disregard alternative things I try such as herbal additions or dietary changes like another GI doctor I had. He has a good bedside manner and is very thorough.
I found Dr. Raiser through another physician when I was complaining about my first GI doctor. That doctor wouldn’t answer questions, was condescending, and, I have learned, has misdiagnosed two acquaintances critically, because he was not thorough enough ( i.e., prescribed Prilosec instead of doing an endoscopy).
Dr. Raiser is not at all like the first doctor. He is very gentle, knowledgeable, and will use whatever diagnostic tools are available to get a complete picture before treating a patient.
I would no longer use this physician. When all prescriptions failed, he refused to treat me further. When I asked about biologics, he said I was not sick enough, even though I went 30 times a day with bright red blood every time. Went to the Mayo Clinic and I can severe pancolitis. Started biologics.
He let me get that severe. I would have been more treatable, had he acted based on my symptoms.
