Gastroentrologist - needed RIGHT COLON CANCER PREVENTION

We have a list of gastroentrologists here but we do not know who is the best and we do not want to take any chances.

“Some “complete” colonoscopies do not evaluate the entire right colon. … Bowel preparation may be worse in the right colon….right-sided colonic adenomas are less often pedunculated and are occasionally flat, which makes them harder to identify and remove.” (from Association of Colonoscopy and Death From Colorectal Cancer http://www.annals.org/content/150/1/1.full )
