I have struggled for years with UC issues without any treatment plan that works until I met Dr. Kerekes. He is the BEST! He listens patiently, explains his recommendations and treatment plans clearly and genuinely cares about making me well. Together we work as a "team" with his office staff, in-house registered dietitian and treatment center and after years of dealing with these issues I can honestly say I feel the best I have in a long time! Sincere Thank you Dr. K and everyone!

I have been a patient of Dr Kerekes for many years and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He has performed several colonoscopies and endoscopies with great care, no complaints at all on that. Dr Kerekes always takes his time with me and answers all my questions. He has always provided great care and his staff is very friendly and caring too. Thank you Dr. Kerekes..

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.
