Dr. Litchfield took his time and didn't make me feel rushed. He explained to me my Crohn's Disease treatment options in terms that I understood and I had better results with him and GI doctors I had seen in the past. His office staff is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend him.

He's very respectful and knows exactly what he's doing. I'm his patient, but also a registered nurse, and I can verify that his medical opinion is trustworthy. I'm really glad he was recommended to be my GI specialist.
