What People Say About Dr. Laurence Entsuah, MD

I work in the medical field have interacted with hundreds of physicians throughout my career. He by far is the WORST doctor I have ever encountered. He has horrible bed side manners. He speaks over you and treats you like you are an idiot. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to him. Think twice before you see him as a patient, I don't want you to make the same mistake I did! He is NOT worth your time, effort, or hard earned money.

Worst office personnel ever. Especially gigi. 5 minute spent with dr. Awful experience ever. Need to be sympathetic if your in medical field not rude. Hope your family never has to deal with personnel like yourselves.

He'd never heard of tooth enamel defects caused by celiac disease, which leads me to question his expertise. He eventually said "I'm not a dentist" before abruptly walking out without a goodbye. I was diagnosed with a major autoimmune disease but wasn't offered follow-up care. I didn't realize this was unusual until later doctors informed me that I could potentially die without treatment.

My husband and I have gone to Dr. Entsuah for over 10 years and have received excellent care from both the doctor and his staff.

He did what I asked & gave me a colonoscopy with NO sedation of any kind. I will return to him when I am due for another colonoscopy. Great bedside manner!

I've been seeing Dr. Entsuah for 2 yrs for gastroparesis and I've probably spent a total of 10 mins actually in a room with him in 2 yrs. He is not only unhelpful but can be outright rude. I'm looking into a new doctor at this time.

I have been in pain for a year since I last saw him. He decided not to help me when the pain first started, now the pain is getting worse and I'm just going to find a new Gastro. I'm suppose to have a colonoscopy every 5 years due to history of colon cancer and I won't even go to him for that.

Could not get direct answers from him, when telling him of pain in my stomach he told me to drink Peppermint Tea. He then did a endoscope/colonoscopy without doing any xrays or mri's. He never made eye contact with me or my husband would always look away. Will never go back to him again, I have heard great things about Dr. Gul so wasn't worried about the office. After enduring the colonoscopy without sedation he told me I was being too tense. really?
