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 have been very easy to deal with. I really like the PA Cynthia, She is extremely thorough and explains everything very well. I also like that they are very quick to call you with any test results you have.
