Dr. Valantas has provided exceptional care to me over the past few years. His genuine concern and encouraging me to undergo a colonoscopy based on my symptoms/family history led to removal of precancerous polyps. I’m grateful for this since I would have waited a few more years to have the test.

Nice enough guy but he didn't impress me with his ability that listen and diagnose a problem. Ignored me and missed my cancer. Not returning.

As a diagnostician, he's fine. As for providing CARE for a patient, he's pathetic. My wife has been battling severe stomach pains for a month. Once he was finally able to get her an appointment, it took another week to get a diagnosis. When she called in severe pain, his office advised us that he absolutely does not prescribe pain meds for any patients. Ever. His suggestion: go to the ER. If you're not in pain, he's fine. Otherwise...go somewhere else.
