Dr. Pazwash is both myself and my husbands doctor. She puts you at ease the minute she says - hello. I would highly recommend her!
Thank you!

Dr. Pazwash is one of the best gastroenterologist I have ever dealt with. This doctor takes everything from the beginning to the end with always your health in consideration. Besides being my doctor I feel as if she's my friend lots of people won't go out of their way for you like she does. Every Dr should be like her.

Highly recommended. She has made me feel so special and taken care of throughout my diagnosis with colitis. Quick and to the point- she doesn't waste time. Sent my whole family and boyfriend to her!

Dr Pazwash was very dismissive to my mother who went in with major symptoms of no appetite, fullness in her stomach as the day went on and weight loss. The Dr ran no blood work and simply preformed an endoscopy. When that showed nothing she dismissed my mother telling her she needs to see a shrink. It is now 2 months later and my mother was diagnosed (by another Dr) with a mass in her pancreas that is most likely a tumor. Dr Pazwash should not be practicing medicine and I urge you to find anothe
