Review of Dr. Makhdoom

-Carbondale , IL |

I had come with a friend at Dr. Makhdoom's office who was having a procedure done. I was amazed how professional and curtious the staff was from front desk to the amazing nurses in the back. Denise and Julie took exceptional care of my friend. I was a bit hesitant to make an appointment for myself but they assured me how smooth the procedure goes and there is nothing to worry about. You guys Rock!

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

- in IL |

I had my colonoscopy done recently. Doctor Makhdoom listened to my concerns and worries. He assured me of the procedure and the process. I had Randee and Cynthia help me in my care with such great comfort. These are the wonderful nurses who helped me and my family. I would most certainly send all my family and friends to this great facility where patient is always first!

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

This was my first time visiting Southern Illinois GI Specialists and it was great! It was more then what I expected. I was greeted by two smiling girls at the registration. Dr.Makhdoom and the staff make you at ease and provided great support in my time of difficulty. Amy in the CT provided great patient care and was genuine for what was needed to be done. I would definitely recommend SIGIS to all my friends and family. Awesome job everyone!

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

- in Carbondale , IL |

I had to make an appointment for my colonoscopy. My first impression of the SIGIS was how fresh and clean the facility is. Doctor Makhdoom and the nurses make you at ease during the procedures. Later I had to get an ultrasound done and Amy did a fabulous job to make me comfortable . She really cared about patient care and called me back to clear my concerns. I would definitely recommend my family friends to come to SIGIS for their GI needs. Two thumbs up for Dr. Makhdoom and his wonderful staff!

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

I have had several visits with Dr. Makhdoom and he is the best Gastroenterologist in Southern Illinois. He listens, he cares and he finds a solution to your problem. He showed me how the patient comes first for him. I have had stomach issues since I was a baby (62 yr. old now) and finally when the Acid Reflux got impossible for me to eat, he took action to find the exact solution to make my life worth living again. I continue to see him for any issues I have because I have been thru heck.

Dr.Makhdoom and the whole staff is just Great! They make you feel so comfortable like part of their family. Front staff greets you with a big smile. Ellen, Megan and all of the nurses in the procedure room take great initiative to ease your nervousness. I have brought my family and friends here for the best care! Dr. Makhdoom truly puts his patients first ahead of business. He is caring, compassionate and the best caregiver you want for you loved ones. They are an assest to this community.

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

- in IL |

I recently had a colonoscopy, and an EGD by Dr. Makhdoom. Dr. Makhdoom and his staff were accommodating, caring and respectful. Having my procedures done in his office was wonderful! My wait time was minimal, and the procedure was quick and painless! Dr. Makhdoom is a wonderful physician with a kind heart towards his patients. He is esteemed by many and well deserving of that! What a blessing to have one of the best GI doctors right here in Southern Illinois! I highly recommend SIGIS!

Review of Dr. Makhdoom

- in Marion, IL |

This is assembly line medicine. Maximizing profits over patient care. did not do an initial examination. Pushed thousands of dollars in hemorrhoid banding and mandated a colonoscopy before anything would be done. All said and done i still had the same problem i came in for. By the way Makhdoom is not a surgeon however that is what my issue required. Around $8,000.00 later I found a surgeon who corrected the problem efficiently and economically. Greed is what is destroying health care.
