Great experience with Dr. Sedghi. He was able to diagnose my condition in a single visit after I had been to many other physicians.
If you live with chronic disease, you know that it is an up and down battle everyday. The last thing you need is what I went through before going to see Dr. Sedghi and that is to be run through the mill, so to speak with test upon test, hospital stays and countless medications. Dr. Sedghi was able to not only diagnosis me correctly ( finally) but also able to start me on the right path quickly. Do your research- real research!

Patients really need to do research before going to a gastroenterologist. Where did they study? Are they published? Do they participate in research trails? Before going to Dr. Sedghi, I went to another gastroenterologist because they were a friend of a friend and is was very easy to get an appointment. Much wasted time , wasted money and wasted medication later, I had a consult for Dr. Sedghi. Within 20 minutes he told me what was going on with me and we had a plan. A plan that works.

The office is busy and it is hard to get an appointment with him, but definitely worth the wait.

Always have to wait for appointments and procedures, sometimes as long as 2 hour wait and office staff is very rude. PA doesn't really seem to care. Dr. Sedghi is good, but I only see him briefly every three years before procedure.

I first saw Dr. Sedghi while I was in the emergency room for an unexpected GI problem. I am too young to have such things so Dr. Sedghi hand picked the surgical team to perform my laparoscopy. Even though they found nothing and the problem was resolved, he wanted to do a routine colo to be safe. I saw one of his PA's in the office and waited only a few minutes for my procedure. Afterwards, he stayed in touch to be sure I did not have any recurring problems. 10 out of 10 for the care and guidance

Negative comments concerning a Lapband procedure that I had done through another Dr. while I had gone Dr. Sedji for a colonoscopy.

I had no insurance but they worked hard to get me the treatment I needed and I am now cured of my liver disease.

Dr. Sedghi and his NP Mrs. Blount are awesome. They are very detailed and listens to your concerns. Very quick response when you leave a message via phone or the patient portal. I also recommend you try Dr. Sedghi diet. I have lost 37 lbs. Can't go wrong with his team and office staff is very friendly.

Awful experience! . Waited more than 3 hours. Then he strolls in and asks if he can go pee (his words) before he does my procedure. They asked me all the questions he should have asked when I visited his office and only saw his PA!.
Macon, GA |
First off they lie I sat in the waiting room for 1:10 . I informed them after they were 45 minutes late that I would only wait another 15 minutes . I waited another 25 minutes called my ride and left . Some ding a ling realized I was gone and 10 minutes after I walked out came to parking lot to tell me to come back in . I told her we were done we got 3 phone calls the 2nd was from the doctor himself . I told him my appoint said 4:30 the idiot told me that it was for 5:30 DO NOT GO THERE
in Macon, GA |
When I consulted with Dr. Sedghi concerning my GI problems, I never actually saw him. He never communicated with me concerning my health. I had a procedure done and that was the first time I saw him concerning my care. He did not know what he was actually doing the procedure for due to the miscommunication in his office. I do not recommend this office as I do not feel they have attention to detail or treat their patients with continuity.
