Reviews for Elgin, IL

5.0 Review from D.B. Source: Google May 17 2022

"Colonoscopies are never a pleasant experience. But they are important and necessary. I just completed my third one at Illinois Gastro and it was as pleasant as it could be. From check-in to check-out and every step in between, everyone was professional, kind, understanding with full explanation of each step. Thanks to my team: Celina, Kelli, Janay, Rachael, and the very important anesthesiologist whose I have forgotten. Excellent experience. Highly recommended."

"I am a first time patient of Dr Losurdo and the Illinois Gatro Group. Purpose of visit - colonoscopy. Office staff is very professional, helpful and followed extreme care related to COVID. My initial appointment with Dr Losurdo was very thorough. Setting up appointment for the procedure was done immediately after appointment and I left office knowing exactly what to expect and do to prepare from the prescription, COVID test, diet restrictions, all the way to day-of requirements. I ended up having to reschedule via phone and that was completed within 24 hrs of initial call to office. Office provides perfect level of reminders too. Day of procedure was orchestrated to perfection. I felt very cared for and my nurse Marti was a whiz at administering the IV (not a fan of needles). But the entire staff that day was amazing. I left with results in hand, followed up with the next day and primary doctor had results in hand within a day or two of procedure. A very well run office. I will be recommending Dr Losurdo and the team to all my friends who are delinquent in getting this very important procedure done and anyone else needing gastro care. Thank you all for taking such great care of me, see ya in 5 yrs."

"Everything was great at the Endo Center. Dr Dorfmeister spent a whopping 5 minutes with me. She came in before the procedure to introduce herself. After the procedure she spent an additional 2-3 minutes telling me what had happened. I was still a bit out of it from the anesthesia and would have appreciated it if she would have waited a bit longer to come in and tell me about the what she found/didn't find during the procedure. She didn't explain anything about what she found. Because of COVID - no one was allowed to be there with me - so I had to try and take in what the Dr. said on my own. I sure miss Dr. Kosinski who spent as much time with me as I wanted. The nurses were fantastic."

He suggested Dr. Joseph and I concur with the other positive comments. I appreciated the step wise approach to a recent flare and being given plenty of information to consider at each decision point. Very thorough. Also, terrific nursing staff - caring, responsive and personable to boot."
