The GI lab was a very organized department. I was treated very well by every person there. Judy did the best IV I have ever had-no pain and she got it on the first stick. Grace explained everything before the procedure. Dr. Palta was kind and very professional. A great experience.

The team at PIH and Dr Palta made this process as easy as possible. The prep instructions were great, and the resulting, uh... exodus was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. The intake nurses were exceptionally kind and helpful; the procedure team was efficient and courteous; the recovery nurse was present and attentive. There's nothing more that can be asked for in a colonoscopy. Well, except for having it performed with a little wand like in Star Trek. Barring that as an option, I highly recommend Dr Palta and her team.

My husband recently had a procedure done with Dr. Shindel and I noticed that Dr Shindel was very informative in explaining any concerns after the procedure and if he had any questions he could call his office or come to see him. I had the procedure done by Dr. Palta, she was professional, however was not as informative as Dr. Shindel . I got the impression that she was a little to busy.
September 20, 2016
