100% I would recommend to family, friends, and strangers!

Dr. Sweeney and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and courteous during my appointment for my first colonoscopy. Initially I was quite nervous about the procedure, but upon arriving at his office, Dr. Sweeney's patience and professionalism (and that of his nurses) immediately put me at ease. While I can't say I'm "looking forward" to my next colonoscopy, knowing that it will be with Dr. Sweeney is extremely comforting. Would definitely recommend to friends and family with GI health needs.

There are no words of praise and thankfulness that I can give to the doctor and his staff.i have been doctoring for years...no one has helped me like dr Sweeney,and his staff always call to check up on me. I have never been treated with such respect kindness and with his caering.

My husband and myself have been going to Dr. Sweeney for the last 20 years. Staff has always been great. Dr. Sweeney is very thorough and has great bedside. Have experienced colonoscopies in his office and at Hinsdale - both places were very positive experiences for efficiency, comfort, cleanliness, etc.

Fortunately my visit to Dr. Sweeney was uneventful. However, I found the experience as positive as it could be. DR. Sweeney was fantastic, and his staff was also wonderful. As good a health outcome as i could ask for. Thanks.
