Biggest ripoff ever! They only care about the money in their pocket, not the patients. They are not timely for appointments after you had to schedule 4 months out for your first visit after another two doctors confirmed me to have an infectious liver disease. That makes sense. Took me countless follow-up calls to just get my prescription after the last appointment. 2.5 weeks later I was able to get it. Then they want to call one week before my next appointment to ask where my most recent lab work they've requested is. If you requested lab work, why did you not request it at my last appointment and why are you waiting 3.5 months to ask where it is? Worst customer service ever. They speak in medical language someone with a Master's Degree (me) has a hard time following. They aren't informative and had to do all my own leg work to learn about my disease and the medication they prescribed me!!! Don't go. Save your money. I am now going to drive over an hour to see a good liver specialist. They just care about their cash flow.
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.
