Dr Taormina is excellent. He told me exactly what to expect both before and after my procedure. He has the best bedside manner,talked to me like I was a friend and not just another number. John,the Anesthesiologist was very knowledgeable in telling me exactly how the anesthesia would be administered and what I could expect from it during and after my procedure. The entire staff was very helpful and knowledgeable and definitely helped alleviate the fears I had going into my procedure!! Midwest GI Dr Taromina and his staff is the place to go for any gastrointestinal problems!!!

Dr Taormina guided me through my esophageal tests and then my need for Surgery to correct GERD. After only two scopes he recommended me to a surgeon and I had a Nissan fundoplication two years ago that completely fixed my issues with acid reflux which before seeing him gave me pain after almost every meal. I'm now in the process of dealing with IBS (I think) but I'm sure whatever I have he will be able to help me. I have had Gastro issues my whole life from Meckel’s diverticulitis (gangrene) to GERD and now probably IBS and I know I’m with the best in our area when I see Dr Taormina.

I would give the Dr. Taormina and his staff both nursing and clerical a 10. They answered every question I had in a way that I could understand what was going to happen. They were professional in every way.

Everyone was very nice: reception, nurses, anesthesiologist & doctor Taormina. I had a couple of questions which the nurse answered well. I was identified at each juncture and asked if I had any questions. The prep was - by far - the worst part of the process.

Horrible bedside manner. Has a god syndrome. Won't listen to patients concerns, seems to be more interested in the medicine trials he has going on with the pharma companies. Went in for colonoscopy, left in ambulance, with a 3 day hospital stay. He never checked on me. Went back with followup in a couple of days. Had a fever and pain. He passed info thru his NP if pain level went to 10 (it was already at a 9) and fever went to 103 (it was a 102) to go ER and stated there was nothing else he could do for me. Meds he gave me have left me with horrible digestive problems.

Dr T is amazing. He takes time to explain it all n presents the facts. I started having regular colonoscopies after my mom died of colon cancer . Dr T told me that if I came in every 5 years n had polyps trimmed off if needed, I would not die young like my mom. Totally reassured me.
