"Highest recommendation for Dr. Losurdo and his staff. This level of professionalism and humanity are qualities not found in all practices. From my first visit to the following procedure, I felt truly listened to, advocated for, and taken care of. As a side note, it is clear that this team is also constantly evolving to revise their processes, updating their procedures while maintaining individualized care. Thank you for taking such good care of me."

I highly recommend becoming his patient if someone has serious concerns about Gastrointestinal issues"

Dr. Joseph and his team took great care with me. Friendly but very professional. Procedure was over before I knew it. A couple days prior I started prepping which wasn't to bad.

"Was recommended to Dr. Joseph my Rheumatologist as I needed to have my first colonoscopy since I was in my late 40s. He said Dr. Joseph was very caring and a good doctor to get the procedure done with. Dr. Joseph addressed all my concerns, explained the procedure, and was given all the prep and instructions for the procedure ahead of time. The night before the procedure, the prep solution was not as bad as I thought it would be. On the day of the procedure, everything went well as it could. The anesthesia was good and I never knew what happened or felt any part of the colonoscopy procedure. Felt like I dozed off for a few minutes, was awake 45 minutes later and went home. No complications whatsoever. Would highly recommend Dr. Joseph to others for your colonoscopy."

"Dr. Gluskin squeezed me in for a video chat after I would have to wait three months for an appointment at my previous hospital. I have been in the ER three times in 18 days-the third time being at Saint Joseph’s. He was great, he seem to care and took the time-in the end- to properly diagnose me."

Every step was explained, as though I had never been there before. The care I received was so personal. Dr. Losurdo has such a kind, loving & caring bedside manner. They were Covid compliance. I felt they done their part to make sure I and everyone there were protected. I highly recommend this Group & Facility."
"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."
"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."

"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."
"The entire procedure went very smoothly. Dr. Losurdo didn't have to explain much to me because this wasn't my first colonoscopy, which I appreciated very much. If I had a complaint it wasn't about the procedure, it was about the prep. I know that this is the worst part of a colonoscopy, but starting the prep late in the day before the procedure made it run well into the early morning of hours the day of the procedure. Small problem but worth mentioning."
"Wonderful doctor, he listens to your concerns, you don’t feel rushed, very thorough, kind, understanding, then he lets you know what he feels is the best solution he would like you to do, then he gives you a printout & explains everything & then he ask that you call him back in 2 weeks to let him know if there are any changes, then decides if you need a follow up or possibly test.In my case I wasn’t rushed into any big decision. Great experience"
