"This is my second colonoscopy with Dr. Arndt (10 years apart). I find him to be friendly, kind and competent. He makes a pre procedure call to explain everything and answer questions. I found the prep tolerable and not too harsh. The day of the procedure went smoothly. The staff is outstanding… professional, kind and reassuring. Dr. Arndt was wonderful as I have come to expect. I also appreciate receiving anesthesia from a CRNA (who was exceptional). The procedure went as expected and I was home in less than two hours. I received follow up communication from Dr. Arndt and the office staff. I am grateful to Dr. Arndt and the team. Thank you."

"Dr. Liebovich provided me with an excellent experience for my colonoscopy. I was very nervous that morning but once I met him and spoke for a few minutes with him I became much calmer and he made the procedure quick and painless. Would recommend him to anyone that needs the services he offers. Thanks also to the staff at Condel."

"Dr. Janda is an excellent doctor and wonderful person. He has treated my mom, aunt, dad and I for years. He helped my aunt overcome colon cancer and was a great support, and skillful and knowledgeable physician during my dad’s battle with cancer. Dr. Janda is personable, kind and genuinely cares for the well being of his patients. He even came to the office on a Saturday when no one else was there to see me and some other patients in need. I highly recommend Dr. Janda!!"

"I just had my first ever visit to a Gastroenterologist after receiving a positive diagnosis to a Cologuard test. Dr Sun appeared to be very professional, and explained what various results could mean. His office staff was also very courteous and efficient, especially the person who scheduled my Colonoscopy."

"I have recommended Dr. Douglas Adler to friends and recommend him to anyone reading this review. Dr. Adler analyzed my issue and prescribed medicine that has kept me me remission for decades. When I need a colonoscopy Dr Adler is on time, upbeat and most importantly thorough with the procedure."

"Dr Victor and his staff have taken care of me for 12 years. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010 and I was only 38. Dr Victor was there for me and always remembers that day - his staff demonstrated empathy for me and my family. Dr. Victor answers my concerns and his staff always ensures I am comfortable - they are all very easy to talk to. I appreciate each of them!!"

"Dr. Kaiser seems to have a great bedside manner about himself. It was my first time meeting him and we didn't have a chance to talk much to each before my procedure and by the time I was awake, he was already on to the next patient so we didn't talk at all after the procedure. However, his team of nurses were wonderful! In particular, Regina, Patsy and Naomi. I hope I got the names right. They were very attentive. Regina even noticed that one of my earrings was missing from my ear! Turns out, it was at home because I had not put it in my ear in the first place! Lol. Dr. Gangu, who was amazing, was my original gastroenterologist, but he retired and I heard that Dr. K will be retiring soon. So by the time I need another colonoscopy, I'll have a new doctor. I'm sure that doctor will be just as nice, but hopefully will have time after the procedure to talk with me. 😊"

"My experience with Dr. Scott Wu and his staff at Illinois Gastroenterology Institute was outstanding when I went recently for my colonoscopy. The nurses were very efficient and caring as were the anesthesiologist and Dr. Wu. I really appreciated the anesthesiologist patting my arm and reassuring me that they would “take good care of me.” The procedure was over before I knew it! Dr. Wu was very thorough. He came in before and again after the procedure to report his findings. I highly recommend Dr. Wu and his staff."

"DDEC and Dr Schoenig and his team are awesome. I have been seeing their team every 5 years for the past 15 years as my family has a history of Colon cancer. The entire process from online scheduling to check in the day of the colonoscopy through the prep for the procedure to release to go home - their team are polite, positive, encouraging and empathetic - I highly recommend Dr Schoenig and his team at DDEC."

"Dr. Victor is an excellent doctor. I had a particular concern and his office was able to get my appointment scheduled within the same week! At my appointment, he listened to my concern and scheduled my colonoscopy on the spot, himself, within 2 weeks. The procedure at Valley Ambulatory was very professional, quick and painless. Every visit or procedure I’ve had with Dr. Victor has been positive. His demeanor, while professional, is very warm and caring. He takes the time to really listen to concerns and to get to know the patient on a human level, not just as a number coming through. Dr. Victor is the one who caught my Type 2 diabetes and diagnosed an unusual issue within my esophagus that was completely unknown to me. I’m highly confident that he would find any issue present and treat it successfully. I can’t say enough about his skill, care and efficiency and I more than highly recommend him to anyone looking for excellence."

"Dr. Bernsen is a consummate professional. He thoroughly looked at my wife's history and suggested a method of examination that took into consideration her specific health issues. He calmly, confidently, thoroughly and reassuringly advised us about the upcoming colonoscopy which gave us peace of mind. I was so impressed that I will be scheduling my own colonoscopy with Dr. Bernsen this fall. Just wanted to add and update that my wife had her colonoscopy with Dr. Bernsen and it went extremely smoothly and Dr. Bernsen continued his care in a very cordial and professional manner."
