I refer everyone I know to Dr Pazwash. She is a talented diagnostician. My issues with my digestive health were serious, painful and masked by other health problems. Dr. Pazwash testing and surgical talent brought me through to full digestive health! I follow up with her when the need arises and find that she continues to take the time to listen and document my responses and probes with questions that bring my problem to light. Even on my last appointment, that she conducted online, I didn't feel rushed and she arrived at a treatment with ease that is already addressing/mitigating my problem. Thank you Dr. Pazwash as always, for your professional , thoughtful manner and expertise.

I have been using Dr. Pazwash for a few years for my colonscopies and have referred her to EVERYONE I know....My daughter and I both love her. So easy to talk to, comforting, and very on top of her skills. If you haven't gone for a colonoscopy due to finding a Dr., you must give Dr. Pazwash a call.

Dr pazwash is treating me for a possible dangerous loss of blood that is as of yet diagnosed. She took over my treatment and I can only say her bedside manner is exceeded only by her clinical skills. She makes you feel safe. By far the most detailed oriented dr I've ever met. I can go on and on but suffice it to say I'm now confident I'm going to get better and I thank God that I'm under her care.

Doctor Pazwash makes an endoscopy/colonoscopy experience as easy as pie. She is very professional and gets right to the point. The anesthesiologist who worked with her was quite positive and happy. A scary experience turned out to be a positive one.
