in Fishers Indiana |
Great bedside manner, great skill and great staff. Compassionate. Can not recommend highly enough. So glad I did homework. It is worth whatever wait time there is to get to see this doctor.

Highly recommended. I had complications, it was spotted and handled immediately!

I have found Dr Rex to be concerned about my health and the procedure he does. I have to have my esophagus dilated 2 X/a year and he is the only one that does it so well. I leave feeling much better and confident that if encountered anything else he would address it. Thank you Dr Rex for great care.

Dr Rex did my colonoscopy I was unsure going into the procedure, my brother was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, so I knew I needed to get it done.he and his fellow doctor made me feel comfortable. They both explained the procedure I woke up it's like I never even knew I had it.i didn't have any complications or pain afterwards. I recommend those two.

If you need a colonoscopy, go no farther. This THE BEST PLACE AND DOCTOR. Yes he is difficult to reach cuz . he and his staff are the best. As a nurse myself I felt safe, cared for and given circurstances could not ask for better place to get care. I highly recommend this doctor and his center. Thank you and God Bess you. Dr. Rex.

I would give Dr. Rex 5 stars - he is great. HOWEVER - I have to give him a single star rating overall, because trying to make an appointment with him is just impossible. For starters, it is extremely difficult to schedule an appointment. He never has any openings that are sooner than 2 months away. After making an appointment, I also have to continuously check with his staff about which location my appointment is in. They do not inform you which of his offices the appointment is in!
