Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Arrogance
He used an adult sized scope for an abnormally small child. After the procedure, the child spent a week being told their pain, hallucinating, and fever was "just gas." In reality, Dr. Semancik had perforated their intestine. The child barely survived. They still face many gastrointestinal issues to this day. His arrogance destroyed a life.

The best GI we have ever worked with. He is a great doctor with exceptional staff. The entire team is compassionate, friendly, and pays attention to detail. All of his work that he did with our family member was praised by Mayo Clinic physicians when we took family there. Dr. Semancik is a great physician.

My teenage son spent most of his life choking and eating at a snail's pace. He had seen many doctors who ordered anything from swallow studies to having his tonsils removed. When he was 15, he needed to take a trip to the ER to remove food that was stuck in his esophagus. It was by chance that Dr. Semancik was on call and he diagnosed him properly within minutes of removing the lodged food! The diagnosis had to be confirmed with scopes, biopsies and testing, but they all pointed to exactly what

Dr Semancik is an excellent provider. He is always attentive to my sons needs and spends plenty of time with him. He asks questions about what my son is doing outside of his diagnosis so he has a clear picture of his entire life. He always explains diagnosis and medicine recommendations along with side effects and why he recommends one treatment over a different one.
