I saw Dr. Charbel recently and was impressed with the level of care that he provided. He really listened to me, explained the condition and offered suggestions that other physicians had not. His knowledge and experience is easy to see as is how seriously he takes his practice and patients. I am grateful that I found a gastroenterologist that I feel I can trust – and already, I am starting to feel better.

Excellent response to my concerns regarding scar tissue formation outside my colon. Kesha was persistent in getting a facility to perform a virtual colonoscopy. The office staff is courteous and efficient. Dr. Charbel is wonderful. He answered all of my questions and I would recommend this office to everyone who has digestive concerns. I am relieved regarding questions that I had previously.
