Dr. Summerlee is truly a wonderful physician! Moving to this area with a serious chronic illness I feel blessed to have found him as my specialist. Each visit I have had with Dr. Summerlee has been exemplary. We all , in an ideal world, seek a Dr. who has expertise & excellent 'bedside manner'. Dr. Summerlee has both......sometimes a rare find. He not only demonstrates superb knowledge, but is an excellent teacher. I have never felt rushed & leave my appt. feeling informed & hopeful !

Dr. Summerlee seemed caring, but I needed a procedure for an infection that I was spiraling downward. I wasn't scheduled for over 2 months away. The office staff was useless. Ended up going to another GI doctor who understood the urgency and how ill I was.
I am sorry you had a negative experience but am happy to hear you were able to find the assistance you needed. I have not previously received negative comments regarding my office staff but will certainly review our professional conduct standards. I make every effort to prioritize the scheduling of procedures based on my patients' wishes however at times I do not have the ability to schedule office procedures urgently unless we decide to admit the patient to the hospital.

Dr.Rob performed my husbands colonoscopy and the experience/interaction with him was nothing short of excellent. He is very personable and polite. He will do what's best for you as a patient not what cost the most. Definitely will recommend Dr.Summerlee to family and friends!
