Always listens and does everything he can to get me back on track with my Crohn's Disease when it is flaring up. Wonderful doctor, would recommend him to anyone needing a gastroenterologist and have already.

Out of my whole team he was the only doctor that seemed to be able to formulate a reasonable course of action. After an awkward start through no fault of his own, he turned out to be the best Dr. And advocate for me.

No matter how bad your condition is..you have to wait MONTHS to get a procedure done. Overbooked? Good doctor though. The receptionists are NOT friendly and if you call the office, they are rude and act like you are bothering them. Need to be more courteous.....maybe take a class on customer...more
