Do not have to wait, they take blood pressure & weigh you each time. You must take an up-to-date prescription list each time. He reviews it, asks questions and sometimes will change a medication to improve my comfort. He is not a push-over doctor. He has done several procedures for me over the years and I am satisfied with his excellent opinion & instruction. Of all the doctors I currently see, he is one of two that I believe truly does care for my well-being.

I have been seeing him for about 3 years. He is a great doctor. When I had an issue with my colon he referred me to a wonderful surgeon who took care of the problem and likely avoided a future bout with cancer.

Annual follow-up for past throat/swallowing problems, along with acid reflex. Talked with the PA's very good appointment they know what they talk about. Very satisfied with entire staff.

Wouldn’t go anywhere else! After struggling with abdominal issues for years, I’m fixed! Both the Nurse Practitioner and Dr. D are relatable and compassionate. 100% recommend.

This is the best doctor I have been to in a long time. Very good listener and takes his time when seeing you. He even gave me a FREE colon prep!!! His whole office staff is very genuine and always there when you need them. I am not one to do these usually but because this office and this doctor are exceptional I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. D had ordered a blood test to see if I was anemic. Since he has no lab was sent to a 3rd party lab. Missed 1/2 day work plus $70.00 co-pay. Missed another 1/2 day to go over results. Once called back saw his girlfriend/nurse who looked at the results and laughed and said "well you're not pregnant!" His staff had checked wrong box and the lab did an estrogen work-up! (I'm male BTW) asked about getting my copays back at checkout and was told that would be up to Dr.D. Have yet to hear back!

He doesnt want to listen to his patients. If you don't agree with him he will discharge you without proper notice.

This is a thoughtful, knowledgeable, caring physician. My wife and I have been his patients for several years. During that time he has done an excellent job of looking after our medical needs in the area of gastroenterology. In his office, or the operating room, he consistently displays high competence and professionalism. His (or on occasion, his assistant's) explanations are clear, thorough and understandable. His facility is well run and his staff is professional, courteous, and responsive.
