Very pleasant doctor who showed concern and listened to and answered questions. No problems with procedure. Appointment was easily scheduled after primary physician made recommendation.

I have been going to Dr Pyrtle on and off for about 3 years. From my first visit I knew I made the right decision in choosing him as my Gastroenterologist. He spends a lot of time talking to you about your options that best fits your care. He is very busy, but I never feel rushed. Dr Pyrtle and I are around the same age, and I feel really comfortable talking to him not just about my medical needs, but life in general. If you are looking for a Dr that really cares I would recommend Dr Pyrtle
