Reviews

I love dr. Hurwitz and his staff. He is very nice, informative and very detailed. He truly cares and enjoy what he does. His staff are on point including the ones in S. Congress when he send you to get an endoscopy. I appreciate all their hard work and attention as they get me through my issues. Also, I love the RN and nurses there as well. I recommend him for any Gastro concerns or needs!

Dr Hurwitz and his staff are the best of the best! My husband has been a patient of his for years and we are very happy with Dr Hurwitz. We had another doctor before him who was awful. Dr Huwitz is thorough and pleasant. He even called us himself to check on my husband after a procedure. He answers all questions and doesn’t rush out.

Dr. Hurwirtz did an endoscopy the same time as my colonoscopy because I was having some mild discomfort on and off. It turned out I had a bad bacterial infection and a hernia. He was very proactive in helping me and I feel so much better now that my illness was caught and treated properly.
