Patient Comments (5)
Fairfax, VA |
I have gone to Dr Nussbaum for two decades. He is outstanding. I never have had any pain from the colonoscopies and endoscopies he has performed, unlike with other doctors. He has earned my trust and highest respect. I found him when I had gone to multiple gastroenterologists for a problem I kept having. The symptoms had stumped other doctors but he correctly diagnosed it as a food allergy and the symptoms went away when I avoided those foods. I highly recommend him.
in Woodbridge, VA |
Profoundly knowledgeable, professional and kind. I needed a doctor in whom I could place my trust after an unsuccessful experience with another gastroenterologist. I've had part of my bowel removed, and was having problems that needed attention. Dr Nussbaum is confident and I immediately felt cared for. He came highly recommended, and he exceeded my expectations.
in Selbyville, DE |
Very thorough, clear explanation of results. Timely followup on exams.
