I've been going to Dr. Desautels for at least 15 years now. His bedside manner has always been impeccable, while taking the time to talk to his patients and answer questions after the procedure. His facility, the medical team, and the front desk are also top notch. Very efficient, but I have never felt rushed.

Granite Peaks was amazing. I was impressed with every person there and will continue to go back each time I need a colonoscopy. The nurses and doctors were the best!!!!!! Chris, the anesthesiologist got my IV I’m the first try and didn’t even hurt me. If you haven’t been...... go for it!!!! I have no complaints.

Amazing staff. Dr Desautels talks with you before hand and let’s you know what is going to transpire. And then after the procedure he fills you in on the results and what if anything is needed for the future

I saw Dr. Desautels for a recurring esophageal and stomach problem. I felt really comfortable with him and believe that he can help with my long term problem. He took care of my late husband a few years ago and I was very impressed with him at that time.

I got my first (and only, so far) colonoscopy done by Dr. Desautels. He and the staff members at Granite Peaks were excellent. Everything was clear, and I knew what to expect throughout it all. Every person with whom I interacted—Candy and Savannah at the front desk, the pre-op nurse Christian, the anesthetist Nichole, the tech Melanie, the recovery nurse Kolten, and Dr. Desautels—treated me respectfully and made me feel comfortable. I’m moving across the country soon, but I’ll still probably return here for any procedures I need done. It’s worth it.
