Routine colonoscopy after three years and a history of issues. Each visit and consultation has been very professional, productive and enjoyable. Everyone in the office and during the procedure was helpful and informative as well as caring and supportive. Dr. Meister always does a good thorough exam and explains results.

I was very pleased with Dr. Meister, Trish Sanford and all the group at GACS. My endoscopy was late because there was an emergency, but the nurses were all attentive and concerned for me. My gastro issues are ongoing, but I believe I am in great hands.

Dr. Thomas Meister, MD is an amazing, caring and compassionate doctor that truly listens and comes up with the best plan of action for all his patients. I was really in good hands with my procedure with Dr. Meister; he truly is an exceptional Top Doctor in his field. Dr. Meister also listened to me about something serious for 11 years that hasn't been properly addressed and he put together a referral to another facility that specializes and exceeds in that particular field. Dr. Thomas Meister truly provides exceptional care to all his patients. I could never thank Dr. Meister enough for all that he's done!

My 2nd time here, and I'll be here for all my future procedures. They genuinely care for the customer/patients. They do a wonderful job of making you feel at ease with the procedure, relaxing you, and putting a smile on your face. They provide a written explanation with photos afterwards for you to keep for your records. And they contact you in the future for the next procedure when it is time (2/3 years in the future) to get it done. They do the absolute best to accommodate you, the patient.
