I have been seeing Dr. Kastenberg for about 5 years. I can say that he is a superb doctor, of the highest caliber, and has done a significant amount to help me through difficult GI issues. He is incredibly caring, respectful, smart and dedicated and I feel fortunate to be among his patients. He is one of those doctors that are quite rare, his patients are lucky to have, and one that other doctors also respect. Great guy.

I continued to get sicker, it was i’ll see you in 3 months. I had a test and he said good news it’s not it. I was grateful. I knew something was terribly wrong I continued to get sicker losing weight and not keeping food down. I kept telling him over and over and his nurse Cheri. Oh we’ll try this med and that med, having no idea what they are treating. I’m so thankful I found a new phenomenal GI. He was incorrect my test was positive and I’m quite ill. I wish they would of been honest telling me they had no idea how to help/treat me. Instead I continued to decline. Nurse Cheri not pleasant and waiting for call backs. I would never recommend these two. Awful experience.

Told me he that food was not related to Crohn's disease, my symptoms were not related to Crohn's. I asked for a referral to the GI nutritionist - who told me that lots of Crohn's patients DO HAVE FOOD ISSUES and she recommended diet changes that WORKED! I've since left Jeff GI for Marcus Inst, also at Jeff, as they understand auto-immune disease. Once I pushed back about my care the staff became discourteous and multiple faxes from my insurance co disappeared mysteriously.
