I would NEVER recommend Dr. Fackler. My 83 yr old aunt saw him on 5/9/18. Two weeks later her care giver called to inquire about results but got no return phone call. I called on 5/30/18, and no return call. On 5/31/18, I drove 30 miles to Macon to his office to inquire, and his nurse would not see me. The receptionist "gave her my message" and I was promised a call that day. It is now 6/4/18, (24 days after her initial visit) and STILL NO RETURN call. Are you kidding me?

Dr. Fackler is amazing. I love him and his entire staff. They are always so nice and I will not use another GI as long as Dr. Fackler is still practicing.

Dr. Fackler and his staff comes highly recommended. I have leukemia and scheduled knee surgery a week away, along with a rectal problem that occured unexpectedly. I called my FP only to hear that the soonest appointment was 2 months out. I called Dr. Fackler's office and explained my problem to Christy his phone nurse. She not only got me an appointment with my FP but also with a referal to a specialist in four days. I needed to see someone urgently before my knee surgery. Above and beyond!

In the past 8 years I have had 3 colonoscopies performed and each time I saw Dr Fackler two of the three times in post procedure appointments and only once in pre-procedure apointments. As I have Celiac Sprue disease, I actually expected to see him in person vs. his PA to discuss my results and condition.
