5.0 Review from J.V. Source: Google Jul 16 2022

"I’ve had GI issues since I was a child. When I caught Covid in 2020, 4 weeks after I recovered, I developed some worsening GI problems. No one could figure out what was wrong with me. I was one of those long haulers. I was referred to Dr. Patel, and he did extensive testing to get to the root of my problem. He set me up with a functional medicine specialist, and I recovered significantly after treatment. I’m forever grateful for Dr. Patel, and his team. I highly recommend him to all of my family, and friends. Now that covid has been around for a while more, and more people are having the same issues I had after recovering. If you’re one of those please see Dr. Patel!"

"I actually meant to write this sooner - my apologies! Dr. Chi was a pleasure to work with and I was completely satisfied with his work ethic! Unlike previous caregivers and medical institutions, Dr. Chi actually took the time to sit down with me after my EGD and discuss the results. His attention to detail is what actually helped us find a possible solution to the symptoms/ailments I have suffered with for almost 10 years now! The nurses, staff and other members of his team were all very kind and helped me feel at ease through the entire process. It is truly a relief to finally feel understood while at the same time be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I highly recommend Dr. Chi and his team for any GI related issues you are looking to address!"

"Dr. Patel has been great, I started seeing him after being referred by my primary care Doctor in 2019. His front office team has always been very kind as well and I feel that he really listens to all of my symptoms. Dr. Patel’s greatest quality to me is his honesty. He is capable of giving tough feedback, which may be hard to hear but you know is in your best interest. I have never felt pressured by him to do unnecessary procedures or take medicine i didn’t want to take. When I have asked about switching medicines, he has been knowledgeable about them and open to working with me to find the treatment which is right for me. He has performed an upper endoscopy and a bravo test on me and has informed me of the various options I have to treat my GERD. I trust him as my gastroenterologist and would recommend him to anyone having issues similar to my own. Thank you, Dr. Patel! Sam Sailer"

"I normally wouldn’t use social platforms to reference Doctors. Always refer to the actual medical references and resources. I had a procedure done at his office it went very better than I thought. His staff was friendly and helpful and professional most of all it was virtually painless. I would have given 5 stars but the nurse who prepared me for checkout abruptly pulled out the IV needle while my arm was south and not resting by my side I had some bleeding. Otherwise, it was a good medical experience. He does have 35 years of experience and is from the original Ingalls hospital aka The University of Chicago."

"The last GI doctor my husband and I had was the most egocentric, noncommunicative man I have ever met. He was rude, and horrible to deal with. Then I met Dr. Wait. Seriously the most down to earth, humble, caring specialist I have come across. And, I've come across a lot of specialists in my time. With a chronically ill child/young adult, and a family that carries the "Weird Stuff Gene," my exposure to specialists of all kinds over the last two decades has been immeasurable, to say the least. Dr. Wait took the time to listen to my concerns, and asked questions that showed me she was taking my self diagnosis of a rectocele seriously. In the end(no pun intended) Dr. Wait told me she agrees with my diagnosis, and referred me to another awesome specialist. I will, with no qualms, always refer Dr. Wait to my friends and family for all of their GI needs😊"

"Without getting too into personal information, I had my outpatient procedure with Dr. Chi for the first time yesterday. At first I was nervous because I've been with the same female GI Specialist since my colorectal cancer diagnosis , 6 yrs ago and that's a very personal and special relationship to have. She moved to a practice too far for me to get rides so my oncologist recommended Dr. Chi, someone she's known since grade school and who she highly respects in the medical field. He put me at ease upon our first meet and I instantly felt comfortable with him. He just so happened to have an opening 5 days later so I was able to get in quickly, which is great for someone who is at a high risk for recurrence in this cancer. Everyone from the first person who checked me in all the way thru to the recovery room went the smoothest and most pleasant experience I've ever had, and this was my 7th time. It wasn't awkward at all the have a male GI specialist like I thought it would be. He had wonderful bedside manner and was extremely kind and professional. It's the cleanest I've felt after waking up after this procedure and it's the first time I've been under anesthesia (I've been under well over a dozen times due to major surgeries) that I woke up clear headed, no backache, no dizziness or nausea, no was like I was never under, but I definitely was. Dr. Chi was amazing and the staff he had at Luthern General was top notch as well. I would HIGHLY recommend him!! 5/5 stars without hesitation."
