      Do not waste your time or money going to this place! If i could choose the option of zero stars that would be more appropriate. The dr i saw, Dr. Desautels, was the most arrogant, egotistical i have ever met. I paid out of pocket $180 because they did not take my insurance for all of approx a 5 to 10 min visit with this dr, just to accomplish absolutely NOTHING! Not a legitimate examination, referral, treatment plan, advice, medication, NOTHING! He basically ripped me off is how i feel!

      Dr. Desautels is extremely compassionate and caring. His staff is professional and courteous. I know that I am not their only patient, but they make me feel like I am. I would highly recommend Dr. Desautels to anyone.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Desautels' Care Philosophy

      I became a physician for the simple reason that I wanted to do something for others and to make a difference in their lives. With disorders of the digestive tract, peoples lives are changed in a very fundamental way. These people have pain, discomfort, irregular habits, and a wide variety of symptoms that range from unpleasant and embarrassing to disruptive and debilitating. These are people who truly need help, and an improved quality of life. This is my motivation as a physician.
