I would give Doctor Kinzel 5 stars if it wasn't for the horrible staff he has working for him. I went in for an endoscopy and they charged me $275 when I was admitted. Prior to the procedure they screened me for possible Covid 19 and they said I had to have the test done before they could perform the procedure (It sure would have been nice if they told me that on the phone prior to me paying for my driver that day $150+). The nurse at that time told me she would take care of reversing the $275, I asked her twice because I didn't have a great feeling she would follow up, and I was right. I had the test done, I was negative. I called them back to tell them I was negative and to setup a new appointment. They told me they have no records of me paying the $275 or any billing for that amount. No matter what I said she wouldn't listen, she was rude and interrupted me constantly. Kinzel might be good but his staff is not worth the trouble.

If I could give -5 stars, I would!! I have dual insurance, and my deductible is covered because of this. Office worker Sarah called me and said that she was having trouble contacting my doctor to get a referral, and asked me if I could contact them and have them contact her. I immediately went to the doctors office and had the doctors office personnel contact her. Before leaving the doctors office, I talked to Sarah and she said that was all that I needed to do and that everything was taken care of. Months later , I received a message on my credit report that a collection had been filed against me. I contacted them to find out what it was, and who had filed the collection. Too my SHOCK, it was filed from Dr. Jason E Kinzel's office. I have never ever had my credit tarnished!! I had perfect credit until this happened!!

Dr Kinzel went above and beyond to explain and help.me through my GI experience. I wish there were more doctor's as concerned for me and my family as Dr Kinzel was. I have already referred him to 3 other family members who will attest to his help, knowledge , and professionalism with anything GI related. If you're in Huntsville ask for him.. you'll be glad to you did.!!

Dr Kinzel explained and educated me on the procedure I was going to receive. He answered all my questions and took the time to explain what I did not understand. I have COPD and other medical issues, I tolerated the procedure well. At follow up Dr. Kinzel took the time to go over the results. I would recommend Dr. Kinzel to my family
