Reviews

My previous 8 hour surgery never scared me as much as I was scared of undergoing endoscopy and colonoscopy for first time . Dr. Gagnejs was so very good at it...I just sailed through the actual process in deep sleep..and my fear was gone...Thank you Dr. Gagneja!

This morning Dr. Gagneja performed a colonoscopy on me. He is obviously a master at his profession and I highly recommend him. I have had two of these procedures by other physicians and Dr. Gagneja will certainly be my choice of a physician when I need to have another these procedures. From start to finish he was informative, professional and most importantly did an excellent job. In addition he was personable, on time, had a good sense of humor and his entire staff was friendly and competent. People do not look forward to this type of procedure but he makes it as routine as possible and when leaving it feels good to know that it was a job well done.
