Procedure went great, with everything being explained well, and the staff was great. Pre procedure e-mail with prep instructions was clear and easy to understand. Only complaint I have is that there was no information given about COVID-19 precautions or restrictions provided before the day of the procedure. If I didn't call ahead on my own, I would not have known what was expected or required when I arrived.

From the greeting to the discharge, clearly the best office in town. Had a 10 year colonoscopy, most likely my last, but I wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr Mitchell is not just proficient, but one of the most personable physicians I have ever been to.

The staff was friendly and shared detailed information. Dr. Mitchell suggested an alternative to a long known medicine that would encourage a healthy colon.

If you can ever say that having a colonoscopy is a "spa-like" experience, Dr. Mitchell's clinic would be it!!! First, all the prep items can now be purchased at the clinic and the bag contains pampering items that you may not think to buy on your own. When you arrive, the waiting room is tranquil with a wall menu of spa-like items. The clinic is complete with brand-new Bidet toilets that have a warm seat, warm water and warm dryer. I had never experienced a Bidet but its a game-changer! While you are waiting, you will be offered a warmed, scented neck wrap and blanket to help you relax. After the colonoscopy, you will be offered a barrista-style hot drink and I chose a Mocha latte with almond milk. And when I inquired about how to have the healthiest diet for my GI tract, the staff has up-to-date, scientific literature and offers coaching & supplements for sale if you wish to purchase (but only if you wish to do that). Dr. Mitchell & team really do offer a spa-like experience!!!

Awesome as it could be. All staff super friendly. Kept me toasty warm as I’m very cold intolerant. Dr. Mitchell very knowledgeable and they all put you at ease. Felt like I was in a 5 minute power nap and it was suddenly over. No grogginess afterwards like my first one 10 years ago. Completely coherent. No side effects at all.

Dr. Mitchell and staff at GACS spent time not only explaining the results of my examination, but were willing to discuss other ways to maintain health outside the realm of prescription meds.

Lots of support prior to my appointment for information, successful preparation for my procedure. Once there, all went smoothly for me. Staff was very kind, informative, helpful, considerate, upbeat. Dr. Mitchell took time to share relevant information with me regarding contributing health issues, treated me as if I were her most valued patient in her time with me. Post-procedure follow-up was timely, thoughtful, helpful. I look forward to working with Dr. Mitchell and staff in future appointments.

Dr. Mitchell literally saved my life 12 and a half years ago. She is an incredible physician and I will continue to see her as long as she is practicing. I highly recommend her office to all of my friends who are struggling with gastrointestinal issues. GACS is a great facility and offers so many amenities to make your time there as comfortable as possible. She has an amazing staff who all pride themselves in their work. They are all kind, caring, and dependable.

I highly recommend Dr. Sue Mitchell and her office to anyone needing a colonoscopy. From the original email announcing my appointment like an invitation to a party, to a spa-like day for the procedure, everything went well. Everyone answered my questions, were friendly and professional and so kind.

Dr. Mitchell performed my colonoscopy. She explained everything about the procedure, asked if o had questions and gave results and feedback after the procedure. This is the second colonoscopy I’ve had and she performed both of them. I highly recommend her and will always schedule my procedures with her. Also everyone from the front desk to the nurses and anesthesiologist were wonderful as well!

Everything about my visit was exceptional. The front desk staff was attentive and helped me feel comfortable from the start. The nurses were personable, caring and comforting. Dr. Mitchell is a wonderful communicator, conscientious, explained things well and made me feel well cared for. I highly recommend Pikes Peak Endoscopy Center and Dr. Sue Mitchell. Thank you all.
