"Dr Awtrey was awesome! He was kind, friendly, personable yet professional. He made you feel at ease before and after the procedure. He explained what was involved and the results of my colonoscopy. I feel so comfortable with Dr. Awtrey that I would consider more frequent procedures BUT yuck, the prep is unpleasant!"

The staff and nurses were very courteous and informative. Dr. Lilly visited with me before, during and after the colonoscopy to answer questions and give me my results.

"Dr.Mayer saved my mom’s life 26 yrs ago and mine as well. We have a family history of colon cancer. My mom had cancer and Dr. Mayer took care of her. No radiation or kemo. Mom is now 75 and going strong. He recommended I get tested early at 28 and I had polyps and caught them before they spreaded and now I’m doing well and get my check ups regular. I thank God for him and his knowledge. He’s like family now and treats you like fam. You couldn’t make a better choice!"

"Dr. Herbert Mayer does exceptional work, I have had two colonoscopy procedures with him and his process and procedures are the best I have ever experienced. I have been regularly scheduling them every five plus years for the last thirty years so I have some credible experience. I particularly appreciate the questioning/listening that he does so well. I have had two incidents semi-related where his advice and counsel was extremely valuable to my long term health and peace of mind. Dr Mayer genuinely cares about his patients, and works really hard to try to protect us. He is very competent, extremely bright, and enjoyable to work with. He deserves the highest rating available."

"The office visit explained the basics of the colonoscopy. I was pleasantly surprised that they got me scheduled quickly. For the procedure, all went well going in and in recovery. My family member had not arrived when all was explained making it hard for me to remember but pictures and basic expectations were provided in writing. When I returned home, I was experiencing some problems and immediately called the facility of the surgery. The nurse spoke to the doctor then explained why I was having the issues due to a polyp location. I was advised on what to expect and what to watch for. This gave me some confidence in the situation. As time passed that evening, the issues diminished as advised. The next morning, all was better. I felt that if things had not gotten better the doctor and staff would be available to speak to me. This was my first experience with Dr. Guider, and although it was not like past procedures I had with my hometown doctor, I feel confident and comfortable enough to return to her for upcoming healthcare needs."

"I called Dr Silvers with a distressing situation this past week and he agreed to work me in the next day. By the time I finished filling out the paperwork they called me back within 10 minutes and then within 2 minutes he was walking into the room! Dr Silvers is a very kind and caring doctor, he takes time to hear my complaints and really listens. He truly wants to help and is extremely thorough. By the way, Dr Silvers has been my GI doc since 2015 and I drive 30 miles from the north shore to see him. Prior to that I had negative (and one nightmarish) experiences with the drs I went to close to home. Lastly, If you need a colonoscopy, go to Dr Silvers and ask him about the “Silvers Method”. 😉 You’ll be glad you went to him."

I had to be at the hospital at 7:30am and I was released before 11:00. It was a cake walk. Dr. Scott did recommended pill, saw me before the surgery and after incase I had any questions.

The entire staff and Dr Schibler treat me like I am the only patient they have. They are patient, kind, thoughtful, considerate and very thorough.

"I have been seeing Dr. George Catinis for a number of years. He is absolutely wonderful. My husband is a new patient of Dr. George Catinis and he agrees with me. Dr. Catinis is professional, caring, he listens and treats us not only as patients, but humans. He is extremely personable. Plus, he knows his stuff. I was having trouble swallowing for years thinking this was related to Crohn's disease. Dr. Catinis diagnosed my problem immediately and along with ordering a colonoscopy, he ordered an endoscopy. He diagnosed Barrett's Syndrome and after several procedures to slowly stretch my esophagus without it tearing, I am now able to swallow without choking. YAY! We would both recommend Dr. George Catinis to anyone seeking a gastroenterologist. Sincerely. Robert and Cindy Riehl"

"A Colonoscopy is a procedure everyone dreds to have when the time comes. I must the entire team was very professional and I was done in no time. I was completely unconscious so I never felt a thing. Kudos to Becky and her team."

"Dr. Brenner is extremely professional and thorough and his staff is similarly professional. His demeanor is courteous and friendly as well. His staff made the colonoscopy and endoscopy procedure I had done on the same day timely, convenient, and comfortable. I was completely unaware that either procedure had been performed when I left the facility."

"I am a 68 year young female and have been going to Dr. Carriere for about seven years now. I have a complex medical history and he has always come into the examination room with a big smile on his face. He makes me feel very comfortable from the moment he steps into the room. He is very interested in what I have to say as we go back-and-forth with questions and answers. He spends as much time as needed and I never feel like I am being rushed out too soon. Throughout the years I’ve had upper G.I. scopes and my colonoscopy performed by him as well as many office visits. My confidence in him is unsurpassed as is his professionalism."

"I was admitted to East Jefferson hospital for three days, for hemorrhaging diverticulosis. Dr. Vernon Carriere Jr. was my gastroenterologist. I was so anxious and scared of passing a lot of blood with my bowel, but Dr. Carriere’s friendliness and easy going nature made me feel better. After hearing my symptoms, he right away told me that it was diverticulosis. He also suggested that it would be a good idea to get an endoscopy and a colonoscopy done, just to be a hundred percent sure. I followed his instructions, and now I am doing fine. My thanks to him!"

"The entire staff made sure that I was comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Wegmann talked with me before and after and gave me the good news that I had no polyps. My Mother had colon cancer so I'm extra vigilant about having a colonoscopy done every 5 years. I'd rate MGA and Dr. Wegmann very highly."

"It was my first time doing a colonoscopy. I was nervous. But I was fine after Dr. Pollack and his team each walked me through the process. They assured me that I'd be fine and were very informative. Real good service!. Thank you."

"I had a bad experience with my last colonoscopy and I was very apprehensive about having another. Dr Julie Guider gave me great suggestions and my procedure went flawlessly!"

"My entire experience for a screening colonoscopy was amazing, from the intake by phone, to the mailings for prep, to the thorough reminders by text, to the pre op staff, to the anesthesia staff, to the post op staff, to the follow up call after the procedure. And Dr. Awtrey was incredibly attentive, kind, thorough, providing me with a full report before I left the procedure facility. I would definitely recommend Dr. Awtrey with Metropolitan Gastroenterology Associates without reservation. And the procedure facility at 2820 Napoleon Ave was convenient and organized."

"Dr. Perisch is thorough and so knowlegeable. I had so many inconvenient symptoms and could not figure out how to manage them. After my initial visit to rule out cancer (colonoscopy), he explained that i had an extended colon which further complicated my i b s symptoms. (This explained why my digestion has always been erratic) Having a plan and more knowledge, I am able to more effectively manage my symptoms. That has changed my life drastically for the better!!!! I recommend Dr. Persich 100%."

"I first met Dr.Schibler in 2003 when he did a colonoscopy for me and discovered a tumor. From that point on he and his staff pointed me to everything I needed to do and who I should see next. Thanks to their kind and professional help I am now 16 years cancer free. My recent contact with this professional group was for a nasty colitis infection. They treated me for my seven day hospital stay with the same professional and compassionate care. I have recommended Dr Schiller to several people and they have had the treatment and experience I had with this group."
