This year, three CL staffers and one life partner of a staffer had to get colonoscopies. Thats where they stick a long tube into your rectum and, once in the intestine, take pictures, remove polyps and that sort of stuff. Decorum and oppressive HIPAA laws prevent us from giving you names and details, but suffice to say that two of the procedures were routine, two were because of pain symptoms. Dr. Stauffer (affectionately known hereabouts as Dr. Stuffer) was our man in each instance. He takes time and care with each patient and is a master with the scope. Heres the best part: The two diagnostic procedures turned out fine, and the two sick people got better. Thats some fine doctorin, if you ask us. Stauffer is aided by the excellent nursing and support staff at Memorial Hospital (which full disclosure includes CL staffer Eric Sniders wife Bonnie), where he does about a gazillion colonoscopies a day and yet it never feels like a production line. Stauffers actual specialty is gastroenterology. But to us, hell always be Dr. John Stuffer: Colonoscopist. Memorial Hospital of Tampa, 2901 Swann Ave., Tampa, 813-873-6400.
