Dr. Fanous has been my G.I. doctor for over 5 years. Thankfully I haven't had to visit too often but every experience has been a pleasant one. He is very thorough and informative. I would recommend him to friends and family, and have done so already.

This afternoon I was suppose to have an New Patient apt w/ this office, and instead I had to walk out of the door very upset in tears. Why you ask? As I approached the front desk I was told my copay office visit was 350.00. First I had to stop in my tracks, and say no one called me w/ this amount. The lady at the front very rudely told me I should have known my high deductible price, and that my copay for my first visit would be a lot. How would I have none my office visit $$. Not happy!!!!

Pretty crappy. Wouldn't see this so called Dr if he was the last one on earth. Only cares about making $...

cold and calculating. he's all about the money
This doctor is warm and caring with his primary focus on patient care and satisfaction. Very suspicious that this review was written by one of his competitors in town. Be wary of any 1 star review! You just might be missing out on one of the best GI doctors in town!
