I have a family member who has been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. Anyone with this disease knows how difficult it can be to manage. Although there are many gastrenterologists in the area, Dr. Wells was highly recommended to us by members of the medical community. We are very pleased with his care and will continue to follow with him in the future.

I was recommended to see Dr. Wells by my fellow co-workers which include physicians and nurses. Not only did Dr. Wells take the time to discuss my illness but he also put together a comprehensive plan to manage it. I would recommend that any person with GI concerns be seen by Dr.Wells.

I have never had a problem in the past with other doctors. Dr wells acted as if me having Barretts Esophagus was no big deal. Even my primary Dr made a huge deal of it stressing that it can lead to cancer. Unless you want to wait hours for appointments or procedures (all for a dr who does not take you serious) go elsewhere.

If I can choose NO stars I am. He is the most incompetent doctor I have ever had and am angry that I went to see this doctor in hopes of helping me . He and his office staff are rude and probably the worst when it comes to communicating with their patients. Apparently past testing used for diagnosing diseases are no good to him. currently. I am beyond dissatisfied and would highly suggest NOT wasting your time.
