For many years I have suffered with stomach problems and hoped I could find someone that could help me to achieve a better quality of life and Dr. Irions I feel was the answer to that prayer in six weeks I feel better than I have felt in years.

Several friends as well as my wife spoke so highly of Dr. Irions I went (reluctantly) to have a colonoscopy. It could not have been easier. Later, and unrelated I had a severe issue that needed his attention. He and a colleague were able to pinpoint the problem and treat it successfully. No one enjoys having to see a medical person, but the treatment I've received from Dr. Irions and Dr. Shore as well as the staff has been pleasant, professional and thorough. I recommend him.

I have had many colonoscopies due to colon cancer in my family. In most of these colonoscopies I have felt like I was in an assembly line but this all changed when I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Irions and his staff. This is the best experience I have had, the care given and understanding of my needs was outstanding. Dr. Irions takes the time to meet with you before and after the procedure and explains if there were any problems or everything was fine. I highly recommend Dr. Irions.

Dr. Eddies Irions is very knowledgeable, personable, and patient. He explains everything clearly and is very caring. He called me to ensure I was okay and he provided alternatives to expensive mediations. He is friendly, easy to talk, empathetic, and willing to assist in any way possible to help his patients. He is an excellent doctor in his field.

Mary from Greenwood. I have been under the care of a gastro group for almost 30 years seeing little/none improvements with bowel problems. My daughter suggested that I try Dr Irions for a second opinion. Within ten minutes with him I knew more and understood more about my issues than the past 30 years. He listens, he investigates, he is right on top of gastro issues. He is quick, kind and being good looking doesn't hurt either. Obviously worth the 3 hour drive to Charleston for me.

I Dr. Irions when I was taken to the ER at Roper on a Sunday morning after I had choked on some bread. He later performed a procedure where he stretched my esophagus and I have had no further problem with choking. In addition he has seen me several other times for different issues and I found him to be concerned, knowledgeable, friendly, thorough and I trust him to do his best for me. I have and will recommend him to friends.

Dr. Irions Jr is my absolute favorite doctor! He has such a bubbly personality! I started seeing Dr. Irions in 2015 and has since referred my sister and my mom to him. They absolutely love him! In addition, I have told all of my co-workers at Volvo about him! He is a CARING doctor that listens to his patients! I would nominate him "Doctor of the Year"!

I've seen many doctors for GI issues and none have come close to Dr. Irons knowledge, care, and bedside manners. I couldn't recommend him more!
