Dr. Connolly listens patiently to my medical concerns. He asked questions to clarify my concerns and explained his plan of action as well as his rationale for the procedures or medicine he prescribed. As his patient, I believe he felt empathy for me and the medical conditions that I am dealing with. I trust his plan of care because he is a highly trained doctor and experienced in gastrointestinal disorders. He is an excellent physician!

I hope he never moves or retires,i don't know what I would do. I don't think i could ever find another Dr. like him.Thank you Dr. Connolly for all you do. Thanks for being true to your calling. I am very fortunate to call you my Dr. Sincerely, Shirley Norris
