I would like to give accolades to Carmen Gonzalez. When I was having an issue getting my medical prescription, she stepped in & put me in contact with the right person to resolve my issue. She tremendously helped me in this situation and has always helped me get an appointment with my physician to my convenience. She has treated me with professionalism and courtesy. She is an asset to the Gastro office and is a pure customer service representative.....My thanks to her for all she does for the patients......Thank you Carmen!!!

I would not recommend this place at all they run this company without feeling and it's like a factory...I'll explain why.Originally i was feeling bad so i god a blood test from my lab and my primary doctor suggested that i go to the hospital to get checked out.The hospital made another blood test and confirmed Jaundice and said i needed a specialist.I then came to this place and when i got here i brought with me all the test i had which we're really recent so i showed these to the doctor.The doctor (Dr. Gustavo Calleja) seemed confused and suggested another blood test after i had all these recent test and they didn't advise me they were charging me even though i had already 2 recent blood test so the test they gave was simply so they could charge me for it..Finally when the doctor (Dr. Gustavo Calleja) actually recommended something the doctor's recommendation that i was to go home wait a couple of weeks and let see what happens.I then asked if I should be doing anything such as eating anything specific to alleviate my condition and the doctor say no I should eat all I want which is really bad advice because on the internet which was free to alleviate my condition I was to drink more water and eat allot of fruits and even cut back on red meat..In other words visiting this place was useless and the advice I got was even worse because whatever I was doing is what got me sick in the first place and Dr. Gustavo Calleja is nothing more than a pencil pushing doctor making money by stretching your visits so patience can keep paying

I was so afraid to do a colonoscopy. But everyone there was so nice and put my fears to rest. Doctor Pina is very Good. And the anesthesiologist Justin explained everything to me. I would recommend this to my friends
Tips & Advices
A gastroenterology clinic is a facility that provides a wide range of gastroenterological services. These services are typically geared toward the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the liver, digestive tract, stomach, duodenum, gallbladder, biliary tract, pancreas, colon, and small intestine. Gastroenterology clinics also offer nutritional support for many issues that impact the digestive tract.
The national average for a new-patient office visit to a gastroenterologist is $428. However, the cost for a gastroenterologist visit can vary quite significantly, and it is dependent on the services that will be performed during the consultation. Many gastroenterologists accept insurance and Medicaid, and payments can be made using cash, credit cards, or debit cards.
The length of time required for a gastroenterologist appointment depends on the condition that is being treated. If this is your first visit, you can expect the appointment to last 30 to 60 minutes, and the gastroenterologist will use this time to gather detailed medical information about your current problems and past medical history. For returning clients, appointments typically run a bit shorter.
A colonoscopy may be performed to help your gastroenterologist diagnose causes of intestinal problems such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, chronic constipation, and chronic diarrhea. A colonoscopy is also used to screen patients from colon cancer, and it's often recommended that patients who are 50 and older have one done every 10 years. Your gastroenterologist might also use a colonoscopy to identify the presence of polyps.
A colonoscopy is a test that enables gastroenterologists to take a close look at the inner lining of your rectum and colon. With this test, a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope is inserted into the anus. This tube has a light and a camera attached, and it gives doctors the chance to capture photos or video of your colon.
