Excelent Doctor.
in Plano, TX |
Five years ago Dr. Eidem performed my diagnostic procedure. When I needed this one, I returned to Dr. Eidem. Same professionalism, support staff, efficient facility, not disappointments. For me, it was very easy to schedule this diagnostic procedure appointment.
Plano, TX |
Dr. Eidem and his whole staff are good people. They were friendly and efficient. Aftewards you don't even know you just had a colonoscopy, except for that prep the night before.
in Frisco, TX |
I would recommend Dr Eidem to everyone! He is very professional as is his staff at the endoscopy center. My husband and I have been going to him for ten years.
in Dallas, TX |
Highly recommend Dr Eidem. Excellent physician, caring and always pleasant. Also great staff.
Prosper, TX |
I needed a new GI doctor after moving from Houston. After extensive research I chose Dr. Eidem. My wife and I both see him and have been very pleased with our choice. At my first office visit he spent considerable time with me and I was very comfortable talking with him. He has excellent clinical skills, listens well and his staff has been excellent to work with.
Love Dr. Eidem but good luck getting his staff to return a phone call. He is a 5 star doctor, his office staff not so much.
Thank you for your feedback and I apologize for any difficulty you experienced when communicating with the practice. All patient communications are important to us, and I'll address the issue described in the review with my team to see if we have a broken process or just made a mistake. Providing excellent customer service along with great healthcare are what we strive to achieve with each patient interaction. We'll do our best to make sure this situation is not repeated. Thank you.

Outstanding doctor with excellent bed side manners.....a winner!!
in Murphy, TX |
Excellent experience, Dr Eidem was referred by several moms of Murphy on their FB page. I will also refer due to the favorable experience. Thanks!
in Allen, TX |
The whole procedure was smoothly executed without pain. I believe it was less than 10 minutes. Dr. Eidem explained every step clearly before starting the procedure, so I was aware of what he was doing during the procedure. I was able to walk out of his office without help.
Lewisville, TX |
I would love to give a review of Dr. Eidem, However because of his office help I am unlikely to ever meet him. I was trying to set up A appointment but after speaking to his support staff I changed my mind. His office staff was not only condescending but extremely rude. I think that's enough.
Thank you for providing your feedback and I apologize for the unpleasant phone experience. Our goal is to deliver a positive experience with all patient interactions, and that is very important to me. I'll review our phone etiquette guidelines with my team this week and use this review as an example of where we did not execute our service goal.

Dr. Eidem is awesome!! He's very personable and so is his staff. He quickly and effectively diagnosed the source of why my stomach hurt me all the time and immediately started me on a treatment plan.
in Sanger, TX |
WOW!! My entire experience was excellent. I went in at 9:30 am and was out by 10:45 am total time. The staff was extremely friendly and Dr. Eidem was friendly and explained my procedure and findings to me in ways I could understand. No one likes having procedures done, but if I need to do it again, I will definitely go here!!!
in Richardson, TX |
Dr. Eidem cares for his patients's welfare, takes time to to talk to me, and makes sure all your questions answered. After the procedure he clearly explains the results and what to expect next. In his office, the scheduler lady (Laura) is very helpful and willing to work with your schedule.

Great Experience for first time colonoscopy.
in Kaufman, TX |
Dr. Eidem came highly recommended but I was still skeptical probably because I was seeing him to have a colonoscopy! I really didn't plan on liking the doctor that would perform this procedure. However, much to my surprise, he was wonderful. I will always recommend him in the future. He made a dreaded experience very comfortable! Terri Burdick, Kaufman, TX
in Frisco, TX |
Very thorough, caring and always smiling. He still looks like he's in his 20's. We have been his patients for 10+ years. I think that says a lot about our opinion of him as a GE.
