I was very unhappy with the level of care from Sattler for my recent Colonoscopy The procedure went fine and the nursing staff was caring and attentive.However, it went down hill from there.After waiting 30min for him to follow up after the procedure, while sitting in a random hallway with other patients w/no patient confidentiality, he conveniently forgot to tell me he took a biopsy which I had to find out from the discharge nurse.He was dismissing, rushed and unapologetic for his forgetfulness

Dr. Sattler is a very personable and knowledgeable doctor. He really takes the time to listen to you and provides excellent diagnosis and treatment options. Unfortunately the staff at digestive care are really subpar, lack communication and follow through, and are prone to making errors.

Upon arrival at the Digestive Care Consultants lobby, we were informed by the office staff that Dr. Sattler was not on-site but would be arriving shortly. After waiting about 5-10 minutes, we were taken in to the exam room by a nurse. The office staff was extremely attentive and friendly. Dr. Sattler did not enter the exam room until 4:57pm. He was almost an hour late, and his demeanor already felt very negative. Although he was very late, I wasn’t upset because I was more excited about get

Just like most Gastric Drs they just give you PPIs and don't fix the issue he told me no one gets cancer from Barrets My symptoms became unlivable so I scheduled an Endo but I ended up in the ER due to my issues and when he found out he cancelled my appointment and said it was not his problem I was lucky to find Dr Sachar who gave me the Endo and tied to resolve my issues She finally sent me to UCLA where they found Cancer and eventually had to remove my Esophagus !! Sattler is useless

The procedures are obviously not pleasant nor is the prep and don't really expect the Dr or his staff the make that better. I know I have to do it so I try to follow all the rules to make is as easy and efficient as possible.However, when the procedure is over, I should not be treated like I no longer matter. The results are a pretty important part of it all and the waiting is a bit scary. Unfortunately, neither Dr. Sattler not his staff seem to care. That's sad.
