Was most satisfied with professional manner of whole operation. EGD procedure could not have been better handled . Caring and dedicated staff at every level. Medication first prescribed offered immediate relief. Could not have been more pleased. Thank you Dr. Viv and staff.

Dr. Huilgol is knowledgeable, approachable, trustworthy, reliable and competent. He has good dr-patient rapport and treats his staff with respect and courtesy. Rather than see someone else, I chose to travel back across the country to have him perform my next procedure.

Dr. Viv was wonderful. Thorough, compassionate, personable, professional, explained everything to me and answered my questions, then followed up personally with my lightning fast results. I highly recommend him and wish he could be our primary Doctor!!!
