Dr. Deese has been my doctor for 25 years. He is the Best. Very caring and knowledgeable. Very smart and good.
in Winnsboro,tx. |
Been going to him about twenty years.Very smart and really takes interest in your diet.Take control over what you need to eat to be healthy I think he's probably a vegetarian.
in Texas |
I have seen Dr. Deese for colonoscopies twice in the past. Local gastro doctors won't even see me due to all the issues I have going on, so I will gladly travel the two hours to have Dr. Deese treat me. Office staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Deese is friendly and knowledgeable. He explains any issues found and gives instructions in writing. He tends to talk a little fast for someone coming off of anesthesia, so be sure and have someone with you who can retain all the information.
in Pittsburgh Tx |
Won't go back. Arrogant. Interrupted me every time I tried to ask a question. Was only interested in selling his own medications. Received a call back from two of his nurses, months apart, both giving me conflicting information.
in Hughes Springs |
Dr Deese discovered my colorectal cancer nearly 8 years ago. He recommended an excellent surgeon in Dallas to do the surgery. Dr Deese has been my Gastroenterologist since then.

Very friendly, very knowledgeable, he does alot in one visit, quickly gets you in and out
in Henderson, TX |
This man has the worst patient /doctor bed side manners I have ever experienced. He was rude, arrogant and spoke to me very abrasively. He would not talk directly to me. He dismissed my questions as unimportant! He point blink told me not to mention his name to anyone that I try to get help from. He will never get a recommendation from me or my family for any reason.
in Longview, TX |
Dr. Deese is a very experienced and knowledgeable Doctor. He takes plenty of time to explain everything in plain clear words! Super nice and personable.
in Hallsville |
This has been my chrons Doctor for 5 year now. He is an amazing Doctor. If you are having concerns he takes them seriously and addresses your problem. His staff is all very friendly and competent including the physicians assistant. It has been a pleasure to be a patient here. I have been in remission for 3 years now and just had to go back for a flare. They are absolutely amazing.
