Doctor Kowalczyk and his team are absolutely amazing people! I have been struggling with my conditions for almost 5 years with no specific diagnosis just medicine given & sent on my way. That's when I met Dr. K and his team. They never gave up on me and after just a few scopes he knew just what to do & which surgeon to team up with. They dug deep & found out the culprit. Now with a partial wrap of my esophagus, hiatal hernia repair & pyloroplasty I am on the road to recovery. I can't thank everyone enough for giving me another chance at a better life. I am forever grateful for all of you. Amber Rosa

I have already shared Dr. K's name with friends, since he is the quintessential professional physician. I have trusted him with 3 procedures (requiring anesthesia) now, and all 3 were successful and had the absolute exact results he advised prior to the procedures. He is consistently on time for my appointments, answers all of my questions thoroughly, and has friendly and helpful staff that call me back quickly if I have to leave a voicemail message. I can wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kowalczyk with 100% confidence.

I had 2 procedures from Dr. Kowalczyk and he put me at ease on both of them before proceeding to the procedures. They were both ones I have never had before and did not know what to expect. After talking to him I felt I was in good hands. His follow up was very thorough and informative. He takes the time to listen as well as to explain. I would highly recommend him. He is a great choice.

A kind, caring, physician who treated me like a human being and made me feel comfortable under difficult circumstances. Then handled all my problems and questions with ease. I have been treated by 3 GI doctors and Dr Kowalczyk is by far the best, based on my experience's. I understand why he has been voted one of Colorado Spring's "Top Doc's" 3 separate years. He is an exceptional person.

Dr. K gave me excellent care while I was in the hospital Successfully diagnosing my issues with acid reflux. He gave the right medications and reduced them as needed for my situation. I found his staff to be helpful and friendly. Dr. K was thorough and attentive during my visits and gave as much time as I needed. On one occasion he made room to see me on a Saturday.

My husband was diagnosed with NASH/cirrhosis with ascites. Dr. K was his physician upon his 3rd admission to the hospital. Hepatic encephalopathy became a complication during this stay and I discovered that it was a result of the OxyContin being administered. Dr. K refused to listen to my concerns, wouldn't return phone calls, nor would he answer questions I had - unprofessional behavior for a person who's supposed to be able to help patients and their families.
