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.

He is extremely efficient. I have visited many GI specialists for several years. He patiently listened to all my previous history and reviewed all the previous medications and test results. I never felt rushed during my appointment. He walked me through the plan and the next course of action for treatment. He periodically called me to check on my progress. I am happy to say that my long standing problem has finally been resolved! I highly recommend Dr. El-Serag.
