Eastside Endoscopy in Issaquah performed a colonoscopy for me back in July 2019. The procedure was mostly uneventful other than the nurse had to repeatedly jab my left arm to administer the anesthesia. Later that night, my left arm started to hurt severely around the IV site. I ended up at the emergency room to get an injection of an inflammatory drug to make the pain go away. I can't prove that the nurse fumbling around with my arm caused the arm trauma but I've never had any other trouble with the arm. The emergency room visit cost me nearly $2300 which Eastside Endoscopy refused to pay. I would recommend finding another provider that is willing to stand behind their work. Avoid Eastside Endoscopy.

Aside from the previous day of drinking the hideous concoction, Dr Kang and his Issaquah office staff provided the most professional, careful and caring experience for a colonoscopy I have ever experienced. I woke up feeling normal and fully awake, absolutely no discomfort whatsoever. Highly recommend.

Dr. Kang performed 2 colonoscopies on me in the past 10 years, and I highly recommend him for his bedside manner in explaining the procedure as well as for the capability of his staff. My last experience with a different gastroenterologist was not a good one, so I've had the opportunity to contrast my experience with Dr. Kang with others.

This is the best Dr I have been to in my life. Had to have a couple of procedures done. I was taken care of immediately, no waiting, very nice people . both times when I woke up I didn't even know the procedure was done. Completely painless and the aftercare was remarkable. I had a very serious medical condition that the insurance would not pay for the drugs to cure because it was too expensive but Dr Kang and his nurse Kathy fought for me endlessly until the insurance finally gave up an paid
