Dr. Nguyen is great !!
Dr. Gogia is very friendly and personable. He saw my nervousness and used a reference to a comedy TV show to make me feel better. When I told him I had very bad gas and bloating, he gave me a good diet plan to help my digestion. Not only that, he ordered a bunch of relevant blood tests to thoroughly check just in case there was a larger underlying problem. It turns out I had a much more severe and debilitating disease. Not the best news, but I am grateful that since my visit, I could go see the right specialist and get proper treatment. Dr. Gogia's staff of nurses and assistants are very friendly and helpful. I took one star off for the ladies who answer the phones to schedule appointments. They need to pay them more or hire more people or something. They are very rude, stressed out, and act like they don't want to talk to you, even when you are polite and respectful.
It’s uncomfortable to go through bloating for 2 years and no one figure out how to treat it or what’s wrong. After meeting Dr Mansour I’m on my way to a great feeling and recovery ❤️ awesome Dr who talks to you and not just give out medication. Great personality, listens and someone you can trust. Thank you Dr Lilah Mansour.
I contacted Dr Elwariz when I was having severe abdominal pain and bloating. He saw me right away and did a thorough check and evaluation. Tests were run and he personally phoned me to discuss treatment and follow up. He explained in terms I could understand. I feel very confident that he will be able to help me heal. I would highly recommend him.
At the ripe ol' age of 31, I had to have my first endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures due to an abnormal blood test result, and I was very apprehensive about the process. Dr. Kiker and his team, however, made it as pleasant as possible. I mean - who writes you a thank you note after your colonoscopy?! Well, Dr. Kiker's support staff did and it put a giant smile on my face after the Propofol wore off. Dr. Kiker has been kind, direct and informative as a health care provider, and I'm thrilled to be working with him as we investigate the cause of my bloating and inflammation. Seriously the best, I feel very much taken care of *and* taken seriously!
