Dr. Ergun gave me my quality of life back. In 2 visits + 3 studies she diagnosed what no other doctor in 12 years had been able to. Ergun is the best in the esophagus business. Direct, thorough, insanely knowledgeable, inquisitive. There is no one I trust with my health more than Dr. Ergun.

Dr. Ergun is one of the most professional, kind and helpful doctors I have seen...and I have seen many! I trust her implicitly and highly recommend her. In response to one review, I will say that Houston Methodist billing, who also handles billing for the doctors, is inefficient, confusing and frustrating. The individuals in the billing office are professional, but you have to be persistent to understand and get through the confusing way they handle bills.

She saved my life. I went to her with discomfort and what I thought was a gall bladder problem. She said it was not my gall bladder and she ordered a CT scan. It revealed a kidney tumor and she referred me to have it looked at by a Urologist. It was malignant and the tumor was removed, successfully. Other doctors would have just sent me away without investigating.

I have been consulting with Dr. Ergun for several years. I find her to be easy to talk with; she listens carefully and is rarely rushed. She has provided excellent recommendations and care. I like her very much and highly recommend her.

She is highly rated by Methodist Hospital, but extremely difficult to get an appointment with, regardless of your dire gastro needs, even if you are an established patient. She wears too many hats...professor, does surgery 2 days and little time for in office visits. I blame a great deal of this on Methodist in attempting to be the major player in the Medical Center, acquiring smaller, lucrative practices, thereby placing others to go to them for aid. Methodist favors the RICH & FAMOUS!!!

I did not have direct contact with this doctor. I did an esophagus motility and Bravo-reflex study. The data collected from the procedures were sent to this doctor for diagnosis. When my insurance request for additional information from her office to process the claim. They did not provide the information and thus cause claim being denied by my insurance. Without informing me and just less than 2 months, they sent my balance to a debt collector. I learn all these backwards from the collector!

I went to see her because of pain in my abdomen after 5 surgeries. She did a colonoscopy and I was left in a lot of pain. She did not give me any pain medication and was left in agony and pain for 3 days and nights. I had to go to another doctor to get the help she refused to give to me. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Dr Ergun demeaned me twice in 5 minutes. When I explained my problems, she asked, with subtle disdain, if a chiropractor had told me that. I said no and continued. Then when I said I was interested in h. pylori, she said in front of me, to her assistant, Now everyone is an expert with the web. I have been dealing with stomach problems for over 40 years and the attitude that I find information only on the web, and that information is bogus, is insulting. I will never go back or recommend.
