"I have known dr. Pillai for roughly six years. He took care of my wife when she had cancer, and he took care of my colonoscopy and he's currently taking care of other things for me. I'm glad I found him, he's the best!"
"Everyone was so nice and friendly and helpful. Any time I called. I got a very positive response and it wasn’t a problem. If I didn’t feel like I was bothering them or agitating them I loved the service the doctor, the treatment everything even after my procedure my doctor was so sweet and so nice explained everything in detail so I can understand exactly what she was saying. Thank you guys for the best treatment I’ve ever had."

She really took the time to try and understand me in order to help. I never felt rushed or brushed off. You can tell these doctors and nurses truly value patient care."
"Colonoscopies are never a pleasant experience. But they are important and necessary. I just completed my third one at Illinois Gastro and it was as pleasant as it could be. From check-in to check-out and every step in between, everyone was professional, kind, understanding with full explanation of each step. Thanks to my team: Celina, Kelli, Janay, Rachael, and the very important anesthesiologist whose I have forgotten. Excellent experience. Highly recommended."
"Dr. Sonia Godambe has been working with me on my ongoing constipation. She doesn't settle with "just ok" results, she comes up with another plan to hopefully give a greater outcome. She's kind and easy to talk to."
"Everyone was professional, efficient and nice. We were seen very quickly All of our needs were addressed. Afterwards when the office was contacted for an issue that needed to be addressed, we were contacted promptly and assisted nicely as well."

"Dr. Pillai was so kind to my husband and myself. He rushed me in for a gall bladder procedure during Christmas and Covid, knowing we were leaving town after the holidays.He called us more than once later in the evening to discuss test results and procedure options. I can’t say enough good things about him! Elgin Sherman Hospital also and his office did so much to accommodate our situation! They were awesome!"
"Dr. Godambe is a wonderful doctor. She took a lot of time during my original visit asking questions about my symptoms as well as explaining the procedure. She checked on me both during and after the procedure. Dr. Godambe fully explained the procedure and the results to myself and my husband. I would highly recommend Dr. Godambe as a GI doctor!"
"I had a great experience and came to see her as she was highly recommended. She did thorough exam and took the time to listen to my symptoms. She was very attentive and answered all my questions.

"Being new to the area, I asked my PCP for a GI recommendation framed as "where would you direct your wife if she needed such care?" He suggested Dr. Joseph and I concur with the other positive comments. I appreciated the step wise approach to a recent flare and being given plenty of information to consider at each decision point. Very thorough. Also, terrific nursing staff - caring, responsive and personable to boot."
"Dr. Sun was very easy going and took his time with explaining my colonoscopy results. He really explained everything that was going on and gave me two of his best treatment options which he ultimately left for me to decide. He was very welcoming and you can see how all of his experience has shaped him by just having one conversation with him"
"I am a first time patient of Dr Losurdo and the Illinois Gatro Group. Purpose of visit - colonoscopy. Office staff is very professional, helpful and followed extreme care related to COVID. My initial appointment with Dr Losurdo was very thorough. Setting up appointment for the procedure was done immediately after appointment and I left office knowing exactly what to expect and do to prepare from the prescription, COVID test, diet restrictions, all the way to day-of requirements. I ended up having to reschedule via phone and that was completed within 24 hrs of initial call to office. Office provides perfect level of reminders too. Day of procedure was orchestrated to perfection. I felt very cared for and my nurse Marti was a whiz at administering the IV (not a fan of needles). But the entire staff that day was amazing. I left with results in hand, followed up with the next day and primary doctor had results in hand within a day or two of procedure. A very well run office. I will be recommending Dr Losurdo and the team to all my friends who are delinquent in getting this very important procedure done and anyone else needing gastro care. Thank you all for taking such great care of me, see ya in 5 yrs."
"My wife Pat had her stomach scoped in June & Dr. Stenniford , the nurses and the support staff were outstanding. They explained everything and made sure she was comfortable though the whole procedure. First class facility and staff."
"This was a pleasant experience here. This was my first time with Dr. Sun but he made me feel very comfortable. As usual for a colonoscopy, the worst part was the prep but after that the Elgin group made me very comfortable."
"Dr Joseph Losurdo, is an awesome dr, caring, patient and professional. The staff and nurses are also very caring. Was able to get an appointment very quickly. Highly recommend Illinois Gastroentology."
"I find doctor Godambe to be caring, sympathetic, and very intrested in taking care of her patients needs. To me she seems to be knowledgeable and listening to her patients needs comes up with a plan to be able to treat needs as needed. I would highly recommend her services to anyone."
"I have been the benefactor of Dr Gambla’s professional skills on a number of occasions. On each such occasion I have been impressed with his knowledge, his ability to communicate and his medical skills."
"Dr. Joseph is an amazing doctor and professional. He was very thorough, patient and respectful. The office was very understanding and helpful especially in this trying pandemic time. I would highly recommend Dr. Joseph."
"Dr. Godambe is a very nice and personal person. She made sure I understood everything that was going to happen and what will happen in the future. Made sure all questions were answered. She cares about her patients."
"DrPillai is amazing - he is attentive, informative, and so compassionate! How many doctors would personally call you on a Friday night to provide update or results? Sure appointments are tough, but he is worth the wait."
"Dr stinneford is one of the best Doctor I came across. I I had the pleasure of meeting him twice. Once for my pre screen and then for my endoscopy. It was the best service and care provided to me in every way possible. I felt really special and satisfied with his services. normally don’t write reviews but what a great experience. Thank you Dr James for everything."
"Dr. Dorfmeister is an excellent gastroenterologist! I’ve suffered with GI issues most of my life due to Scleroderma. Been to many GI Drs in reputable medical centers in and around the Chicago area. Dr. Dorfmeister has helped me control many of my symptoms by her knowledge in the disease. I’m so glad I found her!"
"This practice is very knowledgeable, professional as well as, concerned with the well being of its patients. I highly recommend this practice as well as Dr. Sun. I have been seeing him for many many years."
"A most professional group with a professional atmosphere. From the greeting at registration (Celina), to admission recovery nurse (Diane, go Disney), to procedure nurse (Traci) and procedure tech (Karen) you will know that you have selected the best location for your procedure. Dr Stinneford and nurse anesthetist Lynn are the best. Thanks you all to another most enjoyable visit. 5 stars are insufficient."
"Everything was great at the Endo Center. Dr Dorfmeister spent a whopping 5 minutes with me. She came in before the procedure to introduce herself. After the procedure she spent an additional 2-3 minutes telling me what had happened. I was still a bit out of it from the anesthesia and would have appreciated it if she would have waited a bit longer to come in and tell me about the what she found/didn't find during the procedure. She didn't explain anything about what she found. Because of COVID - no one was allowed to be there with me - so I had to try and take in what the Dr. said on my own. I sure miss Dr. Kosinski who spent as much time with me as I wanted. The nurses were fantastic."
"I am so pleased with ALL aspects of this outstanding practice. From the minute you walk in, you’re treated with smiles and professionalism. Dr Stinneford is very knowledgeable and takes his time as he explains his thoughts and his plan to move forward. Always an excellent experience."
"The only thing I didn't,t like was that. At last visiting area smell like room full of room deoderizer I have allergies to most fragrances most cause cause headaches. Some people have a much worse reaction in that they throat closes up. I mentioned my issues and felt as if my concerns were ignored. Werth reaction headache can ,t be treated you just suffer through it all day."
