I was treated at the hospital by Dr. Rafiq for an unexplained and sudden GI bleed that left me anemic, weak, and with very low hemoglobin. Dr. Rafiq and her assistant, Julie LeBlanc, of the Centennial Rocky Mountain Gastro office were fantastic. Dr. Rafiq is professional, thorough, very focused and compassionate. She sequentially conducted an Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and Capsule Endoscopy to cover all the bases and resolve the problem. I highly recommend this doctor, her team and the group.

I did research and found that she was more qualified than other gastroenterologists in the area. Excellent bedside manners during my office consultation. Took the time to answer each one of my questions in easy to understand language without medical jargon. On the day of my procedure I noted that other doctors were rushing through and she was taking time on each procedure and explaining things afterwards.

Very good post endoscopy and colonoscopy explanation of what she had found and how to deal with any anomalies. The staff at Aurora was equally helpful and easy to deal with.
