Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Disantis has been our family Gastro doctor for over 30 years, starting with my mother. His knowledge and compassion for his patients and their family knows no end. The support staff is just as fine.

Dr. DeSantis is wonderful. He is very concerned about his patients and explains information in an easy way for his patients to understand. I had a colonoscopy and his entire team is dedicated to giving the best of care to their patients. They are friendly, smiling, and always ready to help you if you need them. I was comfortable the entire time I was with them. I highly recommend anyone who needs a GI doctor to call Dr. DeSantis. I plan to recommend him to everyone. Thanks Dr. DeSantis and staff

I've been a patient, off and on, of Dr. Disantis for more than 20 years. He is one of the best physicians I've known. He is kind, very knowledgeable, patient, compassionate, and takes the time needed to ensure patients are comfortable, cared for, listened to, and respected. The subject matter of Gastroenterology in and of itself can cause quite a deal of embarrassment for many people and he and his staff handle that beautifully. Can't say enough great things about him. Hope he never retires!

I was referred to him by my primary doctor a colonoscopy. He is kind, patient and he will take the time to answer any questions you may have. I just had my third procedure with him. Very professional.
