My visit with Dr. Pruitt went very well. The staff is very nice and professional and made me feel very comfortable. The anesthesiologist was very nice and explained what she and her staff were going to do. This was a very painless procedure---I won't be so apprehensive the next time around.

To list all of the good things about Dr. Pruitt and the employees of Gastroenterology of San Antonio would take a long time. I found nothing to complain about. They made it all so easy. That is why I gave them five stars. Will go back in 10 years. David Werner

My procedure went very well. I was very impressed with the beautiful and well laid out building. The staff was polite and very professional at all times. Dr. Pruitt talked to me before after the procedure and kept me very well informed.

Dr. Pruitt is the best! He explained everything thoroughly and took the time to give me all options. Last year he saw my husband for an emergency procedure and was able to relieve his pain and come up with a solution. I refer all of my friends and family to him.

Dr. Pruitt is a wonderful doctor! I have never felt rushed through an appointment. He answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease over concerns I had. After a misdiagnoses from another doctor, he explained to me in detail that I did not have a condition that required surgery! I have recommended him to numerous friends and family in the Victoria area. I am so grateful that a surgeon in Victoria referred me to him three years ago, which prevented me from having an unnecessary surgery.

The doctor, anesthesiologist, and office staff were great. The only thing I really did not like was the nasty stuff you have to drink to prep for the colonoscopy. Otherwise, all went well.
