Hear What Our Patients Have to Say About Our Gastroenterology Care

William M Bauer, MD

Overall Satisfaction: 4.7 / 5

Yes I would recommend Dr Bauer but that does not go for other providers in the group I have had or my family had had. Please updated your prep directions to include specific colors to avoid in the directions for day before and day of. I also don't think the nurse mentioned what to avoid 5 days before. My sister in law luckily mentioned it.

Dr Bauer was great!

Wish my GI doctor was my primary. I felt he knew me without meeting me. He read my chart prior to entering the room.

Easy to understand and professional.

Very positive experience.

Dr. Bauer is excellent. He listens to your concerns, he will go above the allotted visit time to answer any and all questions until you completely understand what is going on, and because of that has found things going on with me that a previous doctor didn't find because he blamed my disability for what was going on instead of really looking for any issues.

Great group of Doctors and staff

The providers are great

Again Dr Bauer could not do mutch better,and he is smart but not pushy.lot Drs think there better humans, Dr Bauer comes across as smart and caring concerned .

He is the best. He is the first person that I have felt has never made me feel like this was all in my head like I was a hypochondriac he took my concerns at heart and I have had multiple testing to try to get answers as to what is going on and I do not believe I am done yet. If he is unable to find the answer, he recommends a specialist for me to go to to try to further find answers. I love him to death for his care that he gives his patients he is top notch.

Dr. Bauer is one of the best doctors I've come in contact with. Very professional and thoughtful - he provides in depth but clear explanations and has an honest and authentic level of concern. I wish other doctors were like him

Very detailed and informative conversation

I liked his plan of care outlined at my visit. But after tests were neg, he ordered a rx. Instead of plan,

John M Coombes, MD

Overall Satisfaction: 4.7 / 5

Very helpful and attentive interactions, thank you.

Dr Coombs was well informed before even starting my appointment. He knew my complete 15 yr GI history and had committed it to memory. Dr Coombs informed me of all of the benefits and possible complications of these procedures, but left the final decision completely up to me . I felt very much a part of my own healthcare after my first appointment.

I saw Dr Coombs and he explained the reason for the follow up visit, addressed questions and concerns and even asked about another issue I was having and how things were going in that area as well

Brittany Smith, NP

Overall Satisfaction: 4.7 / 5

Not the office, just the NP. The rest left a lot to be desired.

I really liked Brittany Smith. She seemed to care about my problem. Also, my wife had been trying to get an appointment for herself and no one called her back. Within a few minutes, Brittany made an appointment the next week for her. She is very kind and concerned about her patients. I will definitely recommend her to friends.

Brittany was very nice and seemed to really care. I will be going back to see her in the spring.

And she's not even doctor! Excellent knowledge displayed. I feel very comfortable in her care.

Care provider was extremely thorough and the scope of her questions and exam was organized and methodical. I recall bring impressed either her professionalism as well as a friendly demeanor.

Through and through, everyone involved was great

Doctor was on time and sit and talk to us.

It seems now that I'm older and have a different Insurance more tests are being done than when I was younger and couldn't afford to pay for them

She is absolutely the best , she went above and beyond with my care !!!

Professional and pleasant

Had very positive experience with care when going in for colooscopy

I was very impressed with how knowledgeable Brittany was. She is very sharp. Very perceptive.

Ovais Ahmed, MD

Overall Satisfaction: 4.8 / 5

Dr. Ahmed always is very informative and thorough when he treats me. He listens and talks to me about options and future care.

Dr. Ahmed is very thorough and pleasant. I have great confidence in him!!!

Dr. Ahmed is one of the kindest doctors I have ever been to. He truly cares about his patients and the outcome of their visit. I am so blessed to have him treating my G.I. issues.

Dr. Ahmed is very knowledgeable, kind, caring and overall a wonderful physician assisting me in my care...thank you!

I do not like going to any doctor, however going to Dr. Ahmed is always(sic) a pleasure

This provider was very pleasant and professional explaining in detail what to expect.

Dr. Ahmed spent time listening & discussing my treatment options.

Still good experience

I like my Dr he is so easy to talk to.I feel very comfortable with him, and I can't say that about all my Doctors.I have had stomach problems for years and when I started to see this new Dr he found a medication that has worked so well for me.I'm so grateful to him I actually don't get sick to my stomach every time I eat any more.

Dr Ahmed put me at ease and was informative.

I feel very fortunate that Dr. Ahmed has taken over for the care of my rare disease. I was understandably concerned when Dr. Fritz left, but have found Dr. Ahmed to be extremely helpful and supportive in my quest to keep this chronic disease controlled. While I trust his professional opinion, he's also very receptive to any concerns and questions that I have.

Really, no BS; great by all involved.

Michael P Chase, MD

I have known my provider for many years and have always gone to him when I felt I might have a gastro issue. He always deals with me as if I am important to him and solving my issue is a priority with him. His personality is professional and kind.

Dr chase was a very nice man and maybe some day we will meet in your office

I wanted an in person visit with MD. Due to a scheduling way out ended up having a phone visit with MD.

This visit with Dr. Chase was outstanding. He spent the necessary time explaining to my wife and I my medical problem and included us in his decision on the best course of action. As a result of his clear communication, we were able to completely comprehend all the issues and treatment effecting me. As a side note, after dealing with a serious chronic condition for many years Dr. Chase's experience and expertise has gotten me to feel the best I've ever been.

Dr. Chase was very clear and helpful with explaining the results of the exam.

He came highly recommended by my provider and I connected well with him.

Dr. Chase is very good, He explained everything that may cause my medical problems. Doctor is ensuring that he will find what my issues are, very thorough and I have confident that Dr. Chase will help me. Doctor is professional and has a good bedside manner. I feel very lucky to have Dr. Chase as my Gastro Dr..
