The entire experience with Dr Southerland and his office was very pleasant and easy. From the initial phone call through the procedures, I felt like this office would take care of me, a scared first timer. Do not hesitate to come to him for help!

I could not ask for a better experience. They called me back the next day and were able to get me in from a cancellation the very next day. The nurse PA was very comforting and patient with me, listening to ALL my medical issues. I felt so at ease and important to them. They went out of their way to make sure I understood everything and was relaxed through the whole visit. They are a bunch of awesome people who work there, from the receptionist, to the nurses, to the assistants !!!!!!!!

This review is based on office staff performance. A scheduled colonoscopy appointment was changed without receiving any notice from the office. I endured the prep and showed up for the procedure only to be told it had been rescheduled. Previously the office informed me that my insurance was invalid. After re-sending the same email containing the same insurance information they realized they had not posted the necessary changes. They no longer use email. Avoid this practice if you can.

I am handicapped and have a hard time getting out. I had been "rescheduled" several times due to his procedure scheduling. This last time I waited for an hour in the office waiting room. I needed to drop off my wife at her appointment 5 minutes away and I told them. It was 11:30. My appointment was at 10:30. I left to dropped her off and returned at 11:40. He still had patients to see and I was told he couldn't see me due to his procedure schedule at 12. Now I need to find a new GI physician
