Dr. Dorfmeister was so kind and understanding. She took the time to ask questions about what I was experiencing and gave me many helpful recommendations, as well as tests to see what was going on. I appreciate her kind demeanor, which was really helpful for me since I was feeling very anxious during the visit. She had a lot of helpful information and I could tell that she is knowledgeable about all things GI related. I highly recommend her.

Dr.Chi is the best doctor ever. I love him and for many years has been my most reliable physician, answering my most difficult questions. I highly recommend Dr. Chi to anyone who needs advice related to GI care.

I had my third colonoscopy with Dr Kuga. This time u did it without anesthesia an was very glad I did. There was slight discomfort but without the anesthesia it was a much faster process.
