From the moment I called for an appointment I have been very pleased with the excellent service I have received. I had a procedure done - everything was handled very professionally with more than my questions answered. This is a top notch doctor with a nice bedside manor.

Very arrogant!!! Waited 3hrs for a endoscopy. When the rude staff took me back , Zalepuga was leaning back in a chair with his feet up on a table. Not professional. Will NEVER go back.

Spent over 2 hours in the waiting room before I was even acknowledged that I was there, has the most unprofessional staff. Does not call back when they say they will and was told they were to busy to help because they had other patients and allows staff to be rude to patients.
