He's the best gi doctor out there. I spent years on different medications and several expensive procedures all of which did absolutely nothing for my pain and then I met Dr Pillai during one of my many trips to the ER and it was such a relief to get the correct surgery and have my pain actually go away. I've sent so many people to him because he is the absolute best!! Happy to say I haven't been back o the ER for my liver pain since being under his care!!

Staff are friendly and helpful here. Only problem is that Google map for this hospital is confusing it will always lead you to emergency clinics.Doc schoenig is very good and patient. During the procedure there is no pain or uncomfortable feelings

Interesting Doctor. Kind and to the point. Willing to share his thoughts, advice, and expertise. No rush in office feeling and a good listener.

My experience was delightful if you can say that about a procedure. I was treated with dignity and respect. The staff made it easy and personable. That's important when facing unknown.

Dr Kosmala is great! He listened attentively to all of my questions and concerns. He is very compassionate too. He helped me with my health issues while taking my feelings into consideration. I am very satisfied with his care and would highly recommend him!
