"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 am very happy with the attention that Dr. Wayne Lue was able to take an extended period of time during my first appointment. My original Dr. at the Illinois facility did not take as much time with me. While this was my first appointment, Dr.Lue was very thorough and I am so pleased. The staff was also very accommodating. While I hoped my appointment could have been scheduled a wee bit earlier, I clearly understand after being treated with such great attention why the physicians in this group are so highly sought after by patients. I would highly recommend Dr Lue or any colleagues to new patients seeking the best care for themselves or a loved one."

"Dr. Samir Patel is an EXCEPTIONAL doctor who exhibits impeccable bedside manners! He is very smart, passionate about his patients, and he doesn’t talk down to people. He explains things in a very concise manner. He is direct but in a respectful way. I have been his patient since 2014. When I first saw him, I was very nervous as I was experiencing some colon issues. He held my hand prior to me receiving anesthesia and made me feel at ease. I had the colonoscopy without any complications. Today, 5/18/2022, I had my routine colonoscopy. Nothing has changed about Dr. Patel. He is still a wonderful doctor! A few things that are really impressive are his staff, each time I visit him my husband is with me and Dr. Patel never treats him as if he is a fixture in the room, he talks to both of us, and he answers any questions my husband has, after the procedure he always give me my medical report with photos, and he has a sense of humor. If I could give him 100 stars I would."

This is the 2nd time I have seen him in 5 years and he is still the same. His staff is very nice also. I have referred him to other friends, family & co-workers as well.

"Let me just be honest. I'm the scariest person ever when it comes to doctors dentist etc. I have had some well pleased Doctors and DENTISTS. There was just something extra phenomenal about Dr. Jaymon Patel, M.D. and his whole team. Once you go beyond them doors and hit the first desk everything changes. EVERY feeling ceases because she's going to reassure you of it. You know how some offices just say things to move you along because it's a constant day after day, hours after hours same routine. So it becomes a routine for them. Nope.....NOT HERE. IT BECAME A RIPPLE EFFECT LIKE A BAND PLAYING ON ONE ACCORD. EVERYTHING FLOWED AFTER THAT. EVERYONE OF THEM WERE TEAM PLAYERS AND MADE SURE YOU MATTERED. NO ADORNMENT BECOMES THIS OFFICE WITH THEIR KINDNESS ,MEEKNESS, JUSTICE AND SOLICITOUS. I THANK YOU ALL. THIS IS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DONE!!! 👍 NO DOUBT THEY'RE ALL HEAVEN SENT. 😇 😇 😇 🙏 🙏 🙏...NO ISSUES AFTER PROCEDURE SEE YOU ALL IN 10 YEARS! .....HALLELUJAH!!!"

"A few days before procedure, Dr. Patel calls personally to explain what is going to happen. I have never had the doctor call himself, a VERY nice and personal thing to do. His staff, nurses etc. are extremely nice and caring. Everything is explained in detail and you are taken very good care of. They even call you the day after your procedure to check in how you are doing. I have been going to Dr. Patel for 15 years and the service has been I of the highest quality throughout. Highly recommend."

"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"

"Dr. Patel is a rather skilled gastroenterologist and surgeon who speaks quite well in either strict medical terminology or plain old shop talk. He’s a real person who acts like a regular guy who happens to be incredibly intelligent, skilled and gifted physician. He is polite and courteous to a fault. His sense of humor is both present and active, if not also quite good! His team uses only the most modern anesthesia techniques and medicines to safely sedate us, but not put us at undue risk or leave us foggy after procedures such as colonoscopy or EGD. The VERY FIRST THING Dr. Patel did when we met was to tell me he’d be asking an awful lot of medical questions later, but wanted first to just get to know me as a person. I was quite shocked and taken aback! Never had a specialist used this approach with me!! We shot the proverbial “stuff” at length and even had a few laughs!! Then a most detailed examination and evaluation followed. It was intense and moved quickly. He recommended the exact diagnostics I hoped I’d receive and numerous tests with which I’m not acquainted. The diagnostics are scheduled quite soon. I’ll have a much better idea why my “guts” hurt so very much, lately. Thank God and Dr. Patel!!!!!!"

"First met with Dr. Kaiser on September 28, 2020 for a consultation regarding intestinal problems I was experiencing. After a lengthy conversation about my concerns, he suggested we begin with a Colonoscopy then get the results and go from there. I had the colonoscopy a week later, October 7th, and was attended to by Dr. Patel. Procedure went well, and I was contacted by I.G. office nurse on Friday, October 9th that my diagnosis was Lymphocytic Colitis and a steroid was being ordered for me that I was to take daily for 8 weeks and that would hopefully take care of the inflammation problem in my large intestine. But alas, my insurance would not cover the cost of the medicine even though it was generic. At this point, October 13th I am still awaiting a response from Dr. Patel's office, or Dr. khaiser's office, or Walgreens regarding what the next step is."

"Started seeing Dr Patel last yr and we made a plan of treatment for my condition. For various reasons, either to his fault or not, until October 30 to actually perform the procedure. I am writing this as of Dec 3 and I am not really sure how (or if) the procedure has made my condition any better. I pray so. Even with the bumps in the road, I do trust him and feel like, if you are firm with him, he listens (not the experience of my husband). I guess it just depends on how aggressive in your healthcare you are."

He listens and seemed to want to gather a fair amount of information. He also accessed lots of past medical records using the electronic medical records from 3 different providers. So, for me, he is the right mix of friendly and communicative we well as tech savvy. Both the in office visit and out patient procedure were good experiences. Everything runs on time but they expect you to do your part to help make things run smoothly so follow their instructions and you won't have mishaps."

"Dr. Patel performed my colonoscopy . Dr. Patel called me on the phone prior to the prep and asked some questions about my health history, went over the possibilities of the risks of the procedure . He gave a thorough explanation of the prep . His office had sent over the prep instructions weeks prior but he just went over everything. He answered my questions and that was that. He seems very intelligent, to the point and very professional.The first time i met him in person was minutes before the procedure. He was well dressed, explained the procedure really quick and before i knew it i woke up in recovery. After the procedure he came & gave information to me & my husband about what he found . He answered our questions and let us know he would give us a call when he had the results. His office staff also called a couple days prior to make sure I understood everything."
