December 8, 2019 Dear Dr. Jager - I am sending this brief note to you to thank you and your clinical staff for a most professional and compassionate experience with my recent colonoscopy. The care and courtesy of each and every persona with whom I came in touch gave me a sense of comfort and confidence that I was in the best hands possible at all times. A special thanks to the Anesthesiologist (I’m sorry but I don’t recall his name) and to the members of your staff that prepped me for my procedure. Although I’d have rather been eating ice cream, it was the best experience in my list of many colonoscopies. Thank you, With kindest regards, Steve Edelman

He was the on-call doctor after I had an endoscopy. Post-op, I was vomiting blood. He never returned my office calls so finally, the receptionist just sent me to ER. He never called or checked on me in the ER. He failed to do his job as the on-call doctor. I thought he was awful.

My intention when I made my original appointment with Dr Jager was to get a simple routine medical test. It became much more complex and Dr. Jager worked with me very positively to provide a positive outcome.

Dr. Jager is outstanding! My Mom and I both see him and we love both his expertise and his bedside manner as well. I have referred several people to Dr. Jager and they love him as well. He takes whatever time is necessary to fully understand and diagnose any issues and he and his staff follow up with return phone calls immediately.

Dr Jager is excellent, he has helped me navigate UC/Chrohns treatments, answers all questions and follows up by personally calling to give test results and ask how I’m doing after new medications are started. Dr Jager is a professional, knowledgeable, caring, respectful doctor. I have had many colonoscopies performed by Dr Jager, results are explained and I am given pictures and report of the process. I heartily recommend Dr Jager.

The only thing I dislike about this practice is that you cannot schedule future follow up appointments past 6 months. Being I have several medical problems and visit doctors often I like to get appointments on my calendar.
