My wife and I came to The Villages about a year ago and we needed to get established with a Gastroenterologist because my wife has Crohn's disease and I myself needed a colonoscopy. Dr Gabriel was recommended to us by virtually all our neighbours and when I asked my primary care doctor about him he told "you've got the best". I looked up his Bio and it was impressive. Our experience with him and his office staff was excellent. On a personal level Dr Gabriel is very pleasant, attentive and caring . We are lucky to have him in The Villages.

Dr. Gabriel was wonderful. He took time with me before and after my endoscopy . The Thoracic Surgeon called me immediately because he had high regards for Dr. Gabriel. We are fortunate to have found such talented doctors locally

Finally found a Gastro Doc that is professional and has knowledge of nutrition. Additional test required but needed to be certain of diagnosis.

Visited Gabriel after urgent care with CT and ultrasound results for follow up. He sat down and sent the appointment time on his laptop typing. Asked why I was there. Told him conditions. He said l needed my blood tested. I told him that was in the report from urgent care. He looked, said not complete test. I told him look on the back of the report page for what he wanted. Told me what I had and gave me a prescription for a drug and told me to take them and if they didn’t help buy Imodium over the counter. Then said a CT exam was need. I told him in the report from urgent care was the CT and also ultrasound results. He never brought them up to view or see what concerns brought me to him. As we left the room he thought maybe I needed a stool sample tested and gave the a prescription. When back to urgent care later with same conditions with story and papers from Gabriel. They were confused why no follow up on CT or ultrasound report, why the prescription drug ( not even related)

My experience with Dr. Gabriel was excellent. He was very patient with me as I've had difficult colonoscopies in the past. He then took extra time with me during my follow-up.

I’ve been to Gastroenterology & Nutrition of Central Florida off 441/27 in I believe Summerfield (The Villages) for an endoscopy as well as colonoscopy. Dr. Gabriel was excellent both with the procedures and follow up appointments. The facility was very clean and the staff extremely professional. I would like to thank Dr. Bavetta, Lloyd, Michael, Arnel, Alicia, and Jasmine for such a comforting and smooth experience. I would highly recommend this office. Sincerely, Michael M.

I originally went to Dr. Gabriel for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. The procedure went extremely well. He spent time with me before and after the procedure explaining everything. I returned to Dr. Gabriel for another issue and he again did an excellent job treating me. His office staff are always very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Gabriel to everyone.

Dr. Nehme Gabriel is one of the most professional physicians I’ve met. He is a great listener, asks the right questions, and is genuinely concerned about his patient’s well-being. I had little to no wait time when I visited the Gastroenterology & Nutrition office to see Dr. Gabriel. The receptionists and staff were friendly and answered any questions I had. I’m very pleased with my choice to have Dr. Gabriel as my primary Gastroenterologist doctor. EK

Had rectal bleeding and Dr Gabriel performed colonoscopy. He determined that it was caused by some radiation damage from prostate radiation that I had completed two years previous at another facility. He cauterized the area and all is well. I had seen Dr. Gabriel several years earlier due to a food swallowing problem and he performed a procedure to stretch my esophagus. All has gone great with both experiences.

Poor bedside manners. Ask him a question and he will literally sit there for one minute looking at you like you're a total idiot. Makes you feel totally uncomfortable. He seems a bit mean.

Was supposed to have an age 50 routine Colonoscopy. His office coded it as diagnostic even though it had nothing to do with reported symptoms that went away after taking fiber supplements at the doctor's advice. The doctor said I should go ahead with the procedure and my insurance would cover it since I did just turn 50. His office staff was extremely rude about changing the insurance codes from diagnostic to routine. I was then hit with $1,000 in bills because my insurance said it wasn't coverd

My experience was VERY different. Dr. Gabriel performed a routine colonoscopy. His pre-procedure session clearly addressed everything I asked and even some i did not know to ask. The colonoscopy facility in Lady Lake area was great. He had a written report of results for me "before" I left the facility. A 'routine' mammogram done elsewhere uncovered cancer. His calendar is booked far out..yet his staff scheduled me (after hours) to ask urgent nutrition advice. I highly recommend him.

My primary care doctor had to call him twice for a referral to get in in a timely manner. ASAP was originally interpreted as a month and a half. Then he wasted at least a week with not letting me know the results of some tests. When asked which cancer centers are best for my condition the answer was They are all about the same. His office staff is next to incompetent in Leesburg.

I met Dr. Gabriel while in the hospital and liked him very much. My office followup is a nightmare. Impossible to get an appointment that isn't at 6 weeks out. The staff at The Villages office is very nice and helpful, the staff at the Leesburg is terrible.

Dr Gabriel is probably the best doctor I have known in my 10 year job as a unit secretary at Leesburg Hospital before I retired. I can personally witness to his standing and reputation in the hospital to be the best and the go to GI doctor. He is well known to be very knowledgeable, compassionate, and extremely skillful. I chose him to do my colonoscopy after everybody in the GI suite recommended him to me. Very highly recommend !
