Dr Quist has been my doctor for the past 12 years. He’s the best! Dr. Quist is kind, listens, is respectful and doesn’t leave any stone unturned. Due to post-chemo issues, I have undergone many colonoscopies and endoscopies. He has found and treated the source of my issues and has put me on a specialized diet (when needed). The office staff and nurses are also awesome: professional, yet relaxed and comfortable. I actually love seeing everyone and don’t know what I’d do without all of them!

I recently met with Dr. Quist to discuss a colonoscopy. Dr. Quist calmly and clearly explained the process. Once procedure day came, I was anxious, but knew I needed to have the procedure. The staff at Newport-Mesa Surgery Center was absolutely incredible. Dr. English sent me to sleep land and Dr. Quist spent roughly 45 minutes on the colonoscopy, and removed a few benign polyps. I had zero problems and Dr. Quist is an incredible physician. The roughest part was the day before - the clear out.;)

I am extremely pleased to have met Dr. Quist. He is everything you could hope for and more. I have been having some issues and was nervous. He has a very calming bedside manner. I felt well taken care of. He spent a great deal of time with me, explaining the procedures I needed and answering each and every single question. I never felt rushed or dismissed. The very next day, he called me personally! I am so impressed and would absolutely recommend him to everyone.

Based on billing practices in office sending my account to billing department for collection when I actually paid my account with receipts showing payment.
