My experience with Dr. Wardlaw was amazing he and his staff to very good care of me when I had an Endoscopy done on the 30th of October and Dr Wardlaw and his staff took care of me in no time. I recommend that if you suffer from acid reflux he is the guy to see.

Dr. Wardlaw saved my life, as well as, brought me back to my original self again. Having a series of surgeries, and taking countless antibiotics, I created a C-difficil infection. After trying options A and B, I started to lose hope. Dr. Wardlaw said to me "sometimes we have to take extreme measures." Well... we did, I got the fecal transplant, and the symptoms from the C-diff had started to go away by the end of the same day of the procedure. Thank you Dr. Wardlaw!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Wardlaw for over four years. He is very personable and is quick to offer resolutions for relief. I have done a lot of research of the Northshore Gastroenterologists and consider him to be the best! I highly recommend him to my friends and family because I want them to have the best too! I have successfully completed three procedures with him and all went exceptionally well.
