I highly recommend Dr. Omar Tamimi, MD of the Endoscopy Center of Toms River. Dr Tamimi and Staff displayed the utmost professionalism, courtesy and kindness throughout the initial meeting as well as the day of my Colonoscopy. Keeping in mind this was the first procedure as well as first time ever being sedated i was not nervous at all. Trust is earned and I have to say Dr. Tamimi and Staff certainly made me feel very comfortable as it could have been a much more stressful experience.
