40 year old endoscopy
The doctor was descriptive, direct, and kind. I had heard great things about his skill set, but it was nice to have a positive experience with him personally. I felt in good hands as I went into the procedure. His PA that I did the initial appointment with was also fantastic. The nurse who checked me in went above and beyond. And all the follow-up nurse calls have been great.

Thank you Dr. Shah and staff. Both my husband and I had procedure’s the same week and we both would highly recommend this medical group. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Shah came by before the procedure to check in on me and ask me if I had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend. Thank you for being so prompt and friendly!!

Dr Shah performed a colonoscopy on me of course it all went as it should. The staff at the digestive center were the best Kim took me and got me prepared for the procedure. Then kennesse took me to the procedure room where Josie and she assisted Dr Shah. While would not wish to have another procedure at this time…. With your staff and doctors here I will see you all in the future. Thanks for the compassionate care you have to me.
