Dr Vernon is top notch. He spends time with you and is very caring and professional. He explains the procedures and the health issues. I've had both GI series and additional testing ran by him. His staff is also friendly and caring. I was lucky that he was the first GI Dr I was referred to and I would never want to see anyone else. I wish all Doctors were as wonderful as he is.

Dr. Vernon ha a very caring nature. He does NOT rush through his appointments, he LISTENS to his patient. In my experience what makes him stand apart from the rest is once you've told him your symptoms/issues his first step is NEVER to write you a prescription. He ALWAYS takes the necessary steps to research what the issue might be. Thank you Dr. Vernon!

Dr. Vernon and his staff are pleasant and courteous. Medical staff in prior to surgery were quick with their pre-op and Dr. Vernon was friendly and professional. After the procedure, he visited to review results. I am completely satisfied with the experience. My procedure was performed at the F-V location.

I was happy with Dr. Vernon. I was happy with his staff. I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. I was happy with his order of proceedures and never felt like I was the next nameless insurance filing. I will go back to him for future treatments, and advice. He was personable, candid, polite and discrete. He is personally professional and sets a standard for his staff to follow.

Professional, honest, calming, personable. I was not rushed, did not feel like I was pressured into any procedure. Dr. Vernon told me the facts, his recommendations/suggestions, when and how the procedure was going to happen, made me comfortable about an uncomfortable procedure. The prep was by far the worst part of the procedure. Dr. Vernon staff are just as professional and caring as the Dr. Thank you Dr. Vernon and Staff.
