I had a colonoscopy consult appointment, did not see Dr Fanous; however, staff member was so rude, I declined any further service from this Dr. When a patient is having a first time procedure and very nervous, there is No acceptable reason for rude staff. It is a reflection on the Dr. I was terrified to allow them to be part of any procedure on me. Sad.

My insurance didn't want to cover my medication that was $400 because it was so expensive. I needed it and couldn't afford it without insurance. Dr. Fanous's office worked for an entire day going back and forth with my insuarnce and finally got it covered! I am so thankful for them and the care they have for me!

If you are looking for a doctor's office that you can feel truly cared for this is the place to go! Dr. Fanous is a very kind and very thorough doctor. Let's face it, going to see a doctor is a scary thing. It definitely makes a huge difference when the doctor has a great staff to be there for you, and takes the time to listen. Again you are at the right place! Tara is always there for me, she listens and will take the time to help, love her!

I absolutely love Dr. Fanous and staff. I see his PA in office, whose also very great, listens to concerns and do what he feels needs to be done. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Fanous when he performed 2 of my colonoscopies and my EGD’s as well. Awesome bedside manner and genuine concern for his patients. I would definitely recommend his practice to anyone looking for a great GI Doctor

I am extremely satisfied with the care I've received from Dr. Fanous. He is thorough, explains everything to my satisfaction and makes sure I understand my condition(s) and options for treatment. He is also courteous and has a caring manner. In these days of impersonal medical providers. It also helps that he has (and his staff) an upbeat manner. I couldn't be more pleased and am glad he was recommended to me!

I go to college several hours away from Tyler, so it is very difficult for me to see " my doctors". I called the office and they went the extra mile to arrange for me to get an appointment during my limited time in town..Even better, Dr Fanous was able to diagnose my ailment and get me feeling better for the first time in two years. I would definitely recommend Dr Fanous.

Its hard to say since I've only spoken to him 5 minutes at the time he performed a procedure, but the other personal reviews are positive. I've only seen the PA in office who was nice enough. My issue is with the small office without enough room to seat patients and the long wait. I am a professional and have to make up the time I miss. There seems to be a lack of respect for patients' time. Software issues with prescriptions (wrong pharmacy every time). Office experience is unacceptable.

Had a very nice experience with Dr. Fanous and his dedicated staff. From start to finish my procedure went extremely well. Dr. Fanous, Tara, Steve, Chris, and Janis took very, very good care of me. Staff members who's names I did not know were very nice as well. Thank you all so very, very, much.

Dr. Fanous took the time to address all of my health concerns. His staff was also very helpful. The pre-colon prep was not bad at all. The whole process from start to finish was 5 star treatment.

Was not told when I made an appointment to see Dr. Fanous that I would be seeing a nurse practitioner instead of the doctor. Did not realize this until I was called back after being made to wait for 2 hours. Walked out after realizing this only to be billed for 75.00 later as a no show. Tiny waiting area with no room for patients and family to sit. Sweltering heat inside as well. Many people complained about the wait times. Would not recommend this facility to anyone.

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!!!!
