After having trouble with other GI offices, I chose Dr Desautel. I’m a retired RN, so I know what I am talking about. Dr Desautel has a kind and professional bedside manner. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. The staff is also amazing. I was in and out of a scope in 90 minutes. Never had that before. Great communication, service, and follow up. I highly recommend him and Granite Peaks GI!

A very pleasant experience at Granite Peaks Endoscopy Center. The inital appointment call, pre-procedure follow ups, emails, front desk, nurses and assistants were fabulous. The escort out to my waiting husband in the parking lot made the visit a pleasure. Each member of the staff did an excellent job in explaining each journey of the procedure and it was "slick as a whistle". Dr. Desautels was very clear on the procedure itself. Thanks to everyone for making a dreaded 10 year examination a very pleasant experience. See you in 10 years!! Sandy D.

The team at Granite Peaks Gastroenterology are great. From the pre-procedure nurse(whose name I can’t remember) to Janelle and Dr Desautels plus my recovery nurse were all great. They respected my privacy. They answered any questions I had. They made my screening as easy as it could be. I appreciated their knowledge and expertise. I would highly recommend.
