The office staff was friendly and efficient, making check-in a breeze."

Then he kindly sits back, answers questions, and gives his patients enough information to make informed decisions.

"The office staff is friendly and accommodating. They understand my needs and I have been able to get appointments quickly (new patient within 3 weeks)and follow ups within one week of calling. Other practices I contacted gave me a six- week- away appointment as a new patient. It is hard to wait that long when you are not feeling well. Dr. Bloom is knowledgeable and practical. He is generous with his time during the office visit. You will never feel rushed during a visit and he takes the time to answer all of your questions."
"Dr Treanor and his staff at GI Alliance are all so wonderful!! I’ve been there twice in the past three months and EVERY single person from the checkin employee to the nurses to surgical staff were the best. I’ve never been to a medical facility where the entire group had smiles and kind words for everyone. Made me feel comfortable and less nervous about my visits. Thank you to all! Recommend them and Dr. Treanor 100%"
"Dr. Cahill is AMAZING. She always listens to everything you have to say and encourages you to do research on medication and is very transparent with all the treatment options. She never makes me feel pushed into anything and that leaves a lot of the treatment decisions with me and educates well!"
"Finding a doctor whom you can fully trust and rely about your health is one delicate task. For my husband Steve and I, I did ask recommendations from friends and others I know. I did go farther than that by going to a website that can tell me more about the person like what school where he graduated, where he did his residency, if there is any lawsuit against him. Having these informations is only a part of the equation but are solid enough to hold unto for a start. With all the names I was recommended and my own researched, I chose Dr. Walter Reid Glaws, DO. I started seeing him on the 3rd quarter of 2008. My husband followed my lead a year later. Dr. Glaws is been our gastroenterologist for over 14 years. We highly and absolutely recommend Dr Glaws to anyone who is in need of his expertise. He has the integrity, intelligence, energy and unwavering dedication to do his job the best he can. He has the excellent physician manners to his patients, full of compassion and understanding and takes his time to explain to his patients things they needed to know. Our honest observations of him for over 14 long years is that his patient's well being is his foremost goal as a physician. Deep in his heart, we noticed he takes his ( Hipocrates Oath seriously when taking care his patients. He had performed multiple endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures to us through the years. He had done several biopsies and and several polyps removals too. I underwent GERD treatment and was a success as well. In 2009, he found in my endoscopy procedure that I have nodules in my stomach wall. I went to see a surgeon (and got 4 more different opinions from other surgeons who aren't related to one another) that led me to have a partial gastrectomy. After my successful stomach surgery, we continued to go visit him for any gastroenterology issues we have. He moved in 2018 from the clinic where we used to go see him that is just 7 minutes away from our residence. He moved quite from us to other branches of his practice group. I went to see another one but I don't see those same qualities he have so we decided to follow him. My husband and I, just have our 2 endoscopy and 2 colonoscopy procedures with him this Dec. of 2022. Again, as always his service was unparallel. We can boldly say, we owe him so much of our good health in his expertise and that we're so appreciative for all he had done for us and for many more years to come. His office employees are awesome and so helpful and kind. The Northshore Endoscopy Center in Waukegan where we have our back to back procedures is a great place to go. The employees- from front desk, nurses, anesthesiologist, and everyone in the there were amazing and compassionate. May God bless Dr Glaws, his family and the people who work with him always. Thank you greatly to you all. Respectfully Yours, Evangeline Evanston, IL."
"Dr. Joseph is a phenomenal physician. Let's you know what is/are the issues and how to approach; and what are the proper steps to take in achieving a successful resolution. Cares for his patients and their well-being. Would recommend him to all. DJR"
"I've been a patient of Dr. Gluskin for over 2 years after my previous physician from the practice retired. He's professional, kind & caring, offering well researched treatment options. As a bonus, he's always on time."
"My experience with Dr. Losurdo was great. I had been dealing with issues for a few weeks and was dismissed by a few ER doctors. I was fortunate enough to get a quick appointment with Dr. Losurdo. He took his time to ask questions, was extremely thorough and was able to correctly diagnose my issue. On top of being thorough, he was very kind! The phone system here is a little difficult, however, the office is prompt in returning phone calls and messages through the online portal. I am so glad to have found a helpful doctor!"
"Dr Jamon Patel is awesome! I struggled with belly issues for yrs and was always told it was stress, always just dismissed. My GP put me in contact with Dr Patel and he knew exactly what was wrong. He put me on correct meds and I feel fantastic! His office staff is so caring. I will recommend him!"
"Dr Robert Janda has saved my life many times . This man is truly the extension of the healing hands of The Lord Jesus Christ. I was bleeding from the rectum due to side effects of chemotherapy, surgery, internal radiation and external radiation. Some Dr could not help me; but God used Dr Janda to heal me. The devil tried to kill me with hepatitis due to blood transfusion that I received years ago. But Dr Janda and Jesus Christ said “ no” to Satan. And I was healed without any injury to my liver. He has been my Dr for 12 years. His compassion for sick people drove him to Africa to do medical mission and many lives were saved. The Holy Spirit and I strongly recommend this Angel to you. He is a humble child of The Most God."
"Dr. Moxon is very professional and proficient. But he is also extremely personable and cares! He went the extra mile when my father was fighting hemochromatosis and took his own time to ensure we as a family understood and what we needed to do. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Moxon!"
"Appreciated the promptness of the administration staff - answering of phones, checkin and assistances. Dr. Victor was very thorough and respectful of my health issues. Refreshing change in Healthcare."
"My experience with GI Alliance of Illinois - Elgin, ALL the staff I spoke to and my doctor Joseph Losurdo treated me with care and compassion, kindness and professionalism. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Dr. Losurdo. Great job!"
"Dr. Kosmala’s thorough and unique examination of my condition was very welcomed by me. He took about 20 minutes just asking questions and then recommended a simple course of action including a change of diet. Then he will be more aggressive once I return in a few months. Very nice man too. Really like his demeanor."
"Thus far, I have received nothing but excellent care regarding a very abnormal and out-of-nowhere case of Celiac’s Disease. After several months of suffering and not knowing what was wrong with me, to now undergoing the steps toward an official diagnosis and treatment plan, this has been a very positive experience in the middle of a overly long period of suffering. Thank you very much for your work!"
"I had a great experience. They called right away after my referral. ALL the staff were so nice. Amy even went out of her way to call me later in the day about some scans and understanding them. I felt heard. For once, I finally felt heard and my weight wasn’t even brought up. Would absolutely recommend."
"Hard to leave a meaningful review as I have only experienced a pre-procedure consultation. My limited view is: Dr. Robinson is personable. He appears to be knowledgeable and open to questions. So far so good! More after Feb, 2023. '"
"The people behind the desk and the nurse practitioner were extremely accommodating and kind. I had a bad experience with the lady who came in to take my blood pressure, etc. I shared that with the nurse practitioner and she got the woman in charge. She welcomed my reiteration of the situation and led me to believe she would pursue it. Thank you!"
"Check in was fast. Staff was courteous and thorough. NP Lauren Smith’s exam was thorough and listened to my complaints. Tests were ordered to access my complaints with follow appointment. I’ve been going to GI Alliance for years and Dr Arndt and his staff have never disappointed me. Highly recommended."
"Dr Liebovich has been my GI dr for about 10 years..i have found him to be professional, friendly, informative and with a very good "bed side manner" as the saying goes. I fully trust his judgement and decisions on my health."
"Dr Clark took the time to answer all my questions and made sure I fully understand my condition. I am very glad that he will be my new G.I. Doctor. I was totally comfortable discussing any topic with him."
"My husband was the patient, and we share this phone. We were very impressed with our visits with DR LIEBOVICH. His manor of care was far beyond anything my husband had ever experienced. Jesus has never been sick except for the initial cold and flu. Now that he has reached retirement years. All the ailments are stepping out to say HELLO. But DR and his staff were friendly, kind and sympathetic to his needs. With a simple explanation as to the results of his CT scan, and change in diet Jesus is doing better. He can only say Thank you !"

Would recommend him to anyone that needs the services he offers. Thanks also to the staff at Condel."
"Dr. Schoenig is very personable, explains things well, and answers questions. He has great expertise in his field. The Digestive Disease Endoscopy Center is very efficient and all staff were friendly and seem to be very thorough.

"I just want to say Thank you to everyone who took care of me. I am terrified of needles and always have really bad anxiety when I have to do anything with needles and especially with putting anesthetic in. The nurse did so good, from the first time and the IV was in (in a vain that has never worked before). Also they made sure I knew I was in good hands and I really was. The colonoscopies upper and lower was really quick, I was done in less than an hr. Thank you guys again, it really means a lot to me for what all of you did!"
"I have been seeing Dr. Sun for a few years now and I can honestly say she is absolutely fabulous. She is very easy to talk to and answers all questions you may have and more importantly always has a plan of action. She has helped me so much in so many ways. I have never had a doctor that was as thorough and competent as she is. I hate having crohn's disease but I absolutely love my visits with Dr.Sun !!!"

I did not at all feel rushed; he was insightful and thorough, very kind and relaxed demeanor, and that put me at ease which is no easy task. He definitely cared about my concerns and answered everything. I am so glad I got to see him."
"Finally - Dr.’s office with latest technology where you don’t have to fill up 5 pages on clipboard and can pre-register before you come. This shows respect to the time of your patients -2:00 pm appointment means you see Dr. At 2 pm. Dr. Jacobs very attentive allowing time to understand patient needs. Very welcoming and professional environment. Highly recommend this office."

I highly recommend Dr. Janda!!"
"My experience with Dr. Pillai has been nothing short of exceptional. Every interaction has been enlightening, educational and most importantly life changing. Dr. Pillai's unique ability to communicate with me in a manner that I understand while affording me the time to absorb information and formulate my next question is imperative to a good outcome-both physically and mentally-and that is exactly what I am experiencing!!!"
"I was seriously Ill with severe ulcerative colitis in 1915 under another gastroenterologist. One of my friends literally and physically took me to Dr Raddawi. I had never met him before! Dr Raddawi was sympathetic and took personal care of me and attended to my illness and saved me. There nothing I can say which would be enough to describe his medical care,, his expertise and competence. He is caring and compassionate, kind and competent. I can not praise him enough! He is doctors doctor."
