I have seen Dr. Stavinoha for about 7 years or so, my wife has seen him much longer. He is a great doctor but unfortunately we can no longer recommend him due to his unruly office staff. They are late to open the office phones when he is not in, they are rude to you on the phone and they do not pass messages along to the doctor in a timely manner. It is a shame that the office staff is going to run this doctor's practice into the ground.

I saw Dr. Stavinoah for a 2nd opinion after a diagnosis of a stricture which required surgery. He said everything looked fine and I didn’t need surgery. When I read the lab report, I saw he did a sigmoidoscopy, not a colonoscopy. Later, he admitted he didn’t do a colonoscopy because a “blockage” would make it risky. He also disparaged my first doctor, doubting he had actually done a colonoscopy. Now he ordered a Barium X-ray. On seeing the results, now he admitted I should have the surgery.

Dr. Stavinoha is a wonderful and a very knowledgeable gastro Dr. his bed side manner is great and he spends time asking questions since he really cares. His front desk assistant Krista is superb as well. I will say that Sandra (insurance verifier) on the other hand is extremely rude and she is definitely not professional. If it wasn't for the Dr. being so great and Krista I would have never returned just based on the treatment from the insurance verifier. Krista stepped up and handled everything

The doctor seems fairly knowledgeable. I am giving 2 stars because of the incredibly rude office staff and considering you have to deal with them more than the doctor I will be finding another provider. Tabitha from the office is extremely unprofessional

Dr. Stavinoha is a great doctor. His office is pretty minimal and he's a bit aloof personality-wise, but that might be something that I like about him. No frills, great at answering questions, and he has provided great care for me for years. Easy to get in touch with, and a great experience overall. I highly recommend him to my friends who ask for a great GI.
