Default Colonoscopy Time Again...HOORAY!

In October I am due for another wonderful excursion into my lower body by some gastroenterologist who delights in such things. Previously, since we lived "up north" I had a wonderful doctor do them. However, I have heard numerous horror stories about the doctors around here. Can anyone recommend (seriously) a really good and knowledgeable doctor and/or clinic for this near or in The Villages?

Second Gastroenterology Associates. We see Dr. Truesdale but I imagine any doctor in that practice is good. The procedure is done at Lake Endoscopy and they are very efficient.

Ditto on this. I was supposed to have that procedure this week but had to have an unplanned surgery last week on my left hand and was "put under" so I didn't want to go thru that again a week later; rescheduled for next month.

Sounds like it is time to live the dream LOL. It could be worse, as the recent NY Post headline read regarding the subway spokesperson: "Jarod---enjoy your foot-long in jail"
Seriously, everyone should get their colonoscopy on schedule, we could avoid about 90+% of all advanced colon cancer. The procedure is short and easy, the prep can be annoying, but that's only for a few hours--a lot better than 4 days of an intestinal flu and certainly better than stage 4 colon cancer

Glad to see positive posts about doctors around here. Seems like most posts are negative.

Funny, that wonderful doctor "up north" may have graduated from the University of Miami School of Medicine who has a top reputation for teaching and research, or he could be a graduate from the University of Florida who also has a high reputation. Being north of the Mason Dixon line doesn't make all doctors better.
