Dr John is an amazing doctor ...very professional. My colonoscopy was schedule late in the day, he saved me from starving and asked me to come early in the morning. Procedure was painless. No complication after the procedure. He followed me few times over the week to make sure I am doing OK. He got amazing staff... very knowledgeable and courteous.

He has an excellent bedside manner and makes every effort to provide you with the information you need by following up with your results.

I am a new patient to Dr John therefore my review is based from an I tial visit and follow-up appointment. Thus far, he has been very professional and personable. He did not "hurry" thru my appointment. He took the time to explain and encourage me to maintain preventative measures for my condition as well as preventative exams i.e. Mammogram, colonoscopy, etc. I would recommend Dr John to family and friends for care.

On my visit with Dr Bijo John I was quite impressed with his knowledge in the subject, professional attitude along with his personal touch and walked me through the different steps and results line by line thoroughly and was patient to answer my questions which might have been repetitive. His office environment and staff were very professional which made me refer him to friends. He is young but in my opinion he is one of the best we can find in San Antonio.

Colonoscopies are never actually fun. But if you have to have one, and you are in the vicinity of San Antonio, I recommend Dr. John and his team. I have had a few of these procedures as a recovered colon cancer patient, and can tell you Dr. John and team stand tall in my experience. His crew was timely, pleasant, gracious, and professional. Maybe most importantly, the procedure was without any unpleasantness whatsoever.

Had a hemorrhoid banding done by Dr. John and was expecting a lot of pain but only had an uncomfortable feeling for several days. After one week I was back to normal. The compound that he prescribes can be bought at several pharmacies but will cost more than if you go to the recommended pharmacy on the south side. This pharmacy will save you quite a bit. I would highly recommend Dr. John, who listens to his patients and explains everything thoroughly.

I had to go through 2 appointments to get my procedure with doctor john. I also feel my whole procedure could have been avoided if i was diagnosed correctly the first time. Even after the 2nd visit my main problem was totally overlooked. I feel if you are seeing a specialist then that person should be very thorough. Also the compound medication that they prescribed was also a pain to find since there are only 2 pharmacies who make it.
