Met Dr Kerekes in December of 2015 through an insurance referral. He absolutely saved me from another year of misery from Diverticulosis by sending me to a general surgeon after reviewing my colonoscopy results. I had my surgery in February 2016 and for the first time in 10 years I have my life back! I am now seeing him for another issue I am having and I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr Kerekes explains everything in detail and his assistant Kathryn is amazing!

Met Dr 5 yrs ago due to pain in abdomen/family hist. of Polyps.Advising I could feel something in abdomen, he informed me it wasn't possible a person could feel if they had polyps.After my persistence & his reluctance,I had a Colonoscopy.One Polyp found where I specified.2016 same pain went to Dr. He treated me as if I was not sound, stated the 1st find was a fluke & no one could feel Polyps.Told me watch diet & ordered an Ultrasound of wrong area. I had to go to another Dr who removed 2 Polyps.
