      I am a long time patient of Dr. Louis Korman- who visits him only for necessary maintenance like colonoscopy. That in itself says his care heals.His bedside attitude is superior. He is my favorite GI doctor.

      Dr. Korman is excellent. Our family have been patients for many years. We appreciate his candid rapport, his genuine concern, and his conservative approach.

      Dr. Korman is a very careful diagnostician with good treatment suggestions (on the conservative side, which I've interpreted to be in my self interest). He also is very empathetic. Great combination in a Doctor.
