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 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.
