Chesterfield, MO |
Excellent center. Wait time was long, but they are very busy. Doctor himself is very nice and knowledgeable . The staff was courteous. I would recommend them highly.

You will not see the doctor unless you have a procedure done. I have been there 4 times, 1 for a colonoscopy and 3 visits. Only time I saw Dr. Ahmed was when I had the colonoscopy. Not even the visit after the procedure did he come in to give me the results the nurse practitioner read the results to me. This was unacceptable to me when this is something I will live with forever.
Belleville, IL |
I was diagnosed with celiac disease last year to recently find out that I never had celiacs in the first place. They recommended I have a Genetic marker study done to see if I was a carrier of the disease and could pass it on to my children. I never received any phone calls, follow ups, or to set up an appointment with a nutritionalist. I have dealt with my symptoms for nearly 2 years with no relief and now suffer from depression because of it. I will never go back. Do not recommend him at all
in O Fallon, IL |
Was sent by primary care MD. Seems like assembly line practice. Staff not helpful if asking cost and insurance questions. Cost me $220 just to come in to schedule. Later learned their endoscopy cost 3x local average ($4500 vs $1500). Insurance flagged. I had asked multiple times about cost, only got right before procedure. Seems to be about revenue more than quality care. Never even was allowed to see DR only schedulers and staff. Cancelled at last minute due to lack of passion in office
in Smithton |
After waiting almost 2 hours we were told they would open another bed up for the procedure and hurry up to get everyone done. That does not leave me with a good feeling. No respectable doctor hurries through a procedure to fit in everyone.
