Capsule Endscopy was performed and I have been unable to get results after 13 days. Appointment scheduling was incorrect and had to be rescheduled. After being hospitalized for upper GI bleeding still have no information on cause a month later.

I like Dr. Alex and stumbled upon him by accident. He is very knowledgeable and works with me with my disease (crohn's disease). The only problem I have is his secretary who is never calls back after you leave a message or never follows up on medicine that I may need.

Competent. But not a patient-care type of doctor, more of punch-the-clock medical mechanic. He’ll hand you lots of pamphlets and leaves it to you to figure it out.

I love Dr. Alex! I have been battling recurrent c. diff infections for months now and he is always there to help me when I need it. He is very knowledgable about my condition and makes sure he is up on the latest research in order to treat it properly. He takes the time to inform of everything I need to know about my disease and treatment. He also follows up on my calls when I have questions or problems and even calls me on his own to make sure that I'm doing ok. Best GI ever.
