This was third colonoscopy by Dr. Dhanuka. That alone should be proof of my confidence in Dr. Dhanuka and his staff. In each instance the procedure has gone extremely smoothly. All of the staff with whom I dealt were very courteous and professional. Dr. Dhanuka was, as he has been in the past, outstanding about quickly coming in and giving me the results. I could not ask for better treatment or service. He and his staff have my highest recommendation.

I had an emergency ERCP performed by Dr. Dhanuka and the Endoscopy staff at Mercy Medical in Redding in early December 2018. I can not say enough about Dr. Dhanuka and his staff. I had just had my gallbladder removed the previous day under emergency conditions at another hospital and was still in pain and quite out of it. He and his staff were wonderful. The procedure was successful. Thank you so much! He and his staff were so compassionate and were so highly skilled in what they were doing. The

I had an over-the-top experience at Redding Endoscopy Ctr from the front desk, to the nurses, the anesthetist and Dr Dhanuka.. all the way to the nurse that walked me to the car. Dr Dhanuka is very knowledgeable! The Center staff's professionalism, customer service attitude, caring, medical experience, and knowledge made my experience very pleasant. They have hired high quality people. And in addition, Lisa inserted the IV and I didn't even feel it.

I appreciate the greeting before procedure and after. What I would change - the instruction sheet for my colonoscopy. I would suggest that the instructions have the patient's exact start time and end time ( at least 4 hours before procedure) to ensure the bowel is clean. I did not have a clean bowel 5 years ago and not this time either. I started last time at the 6pm option and this time I started earlier - which was too early since my colonoscopy was after 10am.
