He has always answered my questions and has helped me when I have had problems with my IBS. He has called me when I know he is busy. The answering service had me fall through the cracks this last time.

Do not go here!! Their focus is 100% on what works for them , not you, and Dr. Blinkoff's solution to any problem is "let's do a colonoscopy and see what happens". When that procedure is fine, there is no follow up from the doctor until next time the patient calls, and then it is "let's do a colonoscopy and see what happens". It takes three months to see the doctor regardless of whether one has a referral or not, and they are inflexible as to moving between offices for patient convenience. There

Had no issue with Dr. Blinkoff as a physician. Have several issues with the AZ Gastro and AZ Digestive practices that he is a part of, specifically: 1) Long waits in crowded conditions. The waiting chairs are terrible in B the surgery side and there were 40 people in the room designed for under 30. One unisex bathroom that always had a line. 2) This is a volume situation and they collect upfront. Staff is rushed, not professional or personable. It's all about the money, will never return
