Dr. Lushine is THE BEST gastroenterologist in the Twin Cities. He is thoughtful and spends as much time as needed. He actually listens to his patients. My colonoscopy was totally painless and I was observed closely post procedure. He is the most experienced GI doc in the Twin Cities and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Scary. The office was a cluttered mess. The front desk person is also the one who inserted the needle and tube by which sedation would be administered. the "exam room" was a table and a monitor in another cluttered room. I required more sedation which was administered by the front desk. During most colonoscopies there is a nurse, doctor and anesthesiologist present. The doctor never spoke to me after the procedure. The totally of the report was: neg colon to cecum. good prep. AVOID!!!

I've used Dr. Lushine for 3 colonoscopy procedures and will soon use him for a 4th.

I am writing on behalf of my husband. I was appalled by what I observed: He was given sedation in an IV by Dr Lushine but wasn't monitored with anything during the procedure nor after the procedure. He was left alone in the small procedure room for at least 15 minutes on the procedure table - again nothing to prevent him from falling off. No siderails on the procedure table, no safety strap. He was then taken to room to dress & wait. There were many patient charts left out in the open, unsecured

Well, my experience was relaxing& comfortable as they said they would make it for me as well as painless. And Dr. Lushine has such a sense a humor he also made the experience go much faster before I knew it the exam was over. And yes I have recommended family and friends to Dr. Lushine. And it is about my time to come and get my 10- year exam again and I will be coming back to yes, Dr. Lushine.
