He doesn’t listen to his patients. I ended up in the ICU and almost died because of this. I DO NOT recommend seeing him if you have anything beyond a mild issue.

I would highly recommend Dr. Comerford to family and friends in need of a gastroenterologist. His demeanor and character is that of one who is genuinely concerned with the both the physical, emotion and mental well being of the person in front of him. Dr. Comerford takes the time to talk to his patients and one does not get the feeling he is watching the clock on the wall to see how quickly he can get to the next patient.
