Doctor Elloway did my colonoscopy and it was the best experience ever. The staff who did the prep were the best. Both nurses were kind and very good at their jobs. I have never had better care in any medical facility.

After 15 years of diarrhea and 2 months of severe abdominal pain, Dr elloway would not run any tests. Said I had ibd and gave me Bentyl and immodium. Went to see different Dr and found out I have a bacterial infection and if I would have taken the Immodium it would have gotten worse. All he cared about was getting me out of his office because I'm a smoker and he didn't like smell of cigarettes on my clothes.
