This was for my colonoscopy and the entire staff from the front office to the entire nursing staff was excellent. I was extremely comfortable and my nervousness went away.

June 04, 2021
The whole PIH digestive health staff was great--from the welcoming and attending nurses (three of them), to the careful and thoughtful anesthesiologist (whose name I didn't catch), to Dr. Ashok, whom I'd also never met before. I'm rather a "special needs" patient in certain ways (such as needing the i.v. needle in my ankle instead of my arm), but instead of expressing one-size-fits-all irritation at my request, the entire team worked with me to make the experience seamless and almost pleasant.
June 03, 2021
Thanks for the timely and good attention.
June 01, 2021

All nurses are very nice
May 11, 2021
Everything was great but the front didn't let the nurse know that my husband was a gurney patient so was a little tight, the nurse said why didn't they tell me so that I can put you in a larger room. I would highly recommend this office.
May 11, 2021
After 2 years, several doctors, many tests, Dr. Ashok is the one who found my sons cancer. I have the deepest faith and trust in his diagnosis and treatment. He has been my doctor for several years. I would recommend him without question to family and friends
May 07, 2021
Shamefully, in today's day and age, customer service has been sacrificed for cutting back on payroll and pursuing productivity. Good and beyond customer service will always be key to the continued success of any business. Congrats on not forgetting the needs and comfort of your patrons/patients inquiries and needs. Team Ashok, I applaud you! Well done!!

Dr. and staff were friendly and efficient. I trusted the doctor to do my colonoscopy. I was able to choose the date and time that I wanted. The hospital experience was great.
March 22, 2021
The doctors visit went just fine. The only frustration was the paid parking machines and gates. I try and avoid coming to this location just because of it. It's a lousy way to squeeze an extra $3 from everyone who uses these facilities.

It was held in an upmost professional manner and made the experience very comforting

February 17, 2021
Does not have a very welcoming attitude. Instead of a smile and how are you, it's more... what are you here for? When you need and want to know that you are a person instead of a chart... we didn't get it here.
