One of the best Drs (Specialist) I've had in my 5 year journey with illnesses. I wish all Drs were like Dr. Solorzano. His bedside manner is AMAZING! Very thorough, personable, explains things clearly and very patient. I'd recommend him to family and friends without hesitation. Can I give 10 stars?

Dr. Courtney is the only Dr for me and my family. So, since she has left the practice I will be leaving there also. No one takes the time and cares for the patients as well as she does. I will definitely be following to her new practice wherever that maybe after this COVID-19 is over.

Dr. Barros seems young and therefore, inexperienced. On each of two visits I asked a question about a health concern and was blown off with no discussion or explanation. I believe I need to look elsewhere for a reliable doctor.

I could not possibly ask for a better doctor. Dr. Frye was the first doctor to actually believe me, treat me like a partner in my own care, and help me get back to 100% after a long (sick, frustrating, fight for my life) search and bad experiences with other GIs.
