"I recently went for a colonoscopy. Everyone from the receptionst Tammy, the nurses Renee, Reba and Judy were freindly professional and awesome. The anesthesiologist John came and explained his responsibilities and wanted to know if I had questions. Jay the procedure tech took time to speak with me.

"Dr.Vanesko is great!! I’ve been seeing her for years now. I have Gastroparesis & she was the first GI Dr I’ve seen to find & diagnose it. I had been suffering for years prior but no one else thought to do GES to check for GP. I am so grateful to have a diagnosis & have someone reliable to help me deal with it. She is very responsive. & knowledgeable. As many doctors, it can take time for an appointment but she will always respond back when I need her, along with her nurses. I have lots of other GI issues and she’s amazing at helping me with all of them. Lucky to have found Dr. Vanesko! Thank you!❤️"

"I don’t like to leave reviews, but my experience with Dr. Grace Vanesko was so exceptional , that I decided to right about my great experience . First of all, it was very easy to schedule an appointment, they were very prompt ! The check in area was spot less , wait time was surprisingly short, well organised office! Dr. Vanesko came to the room after nurse and started asking me questions, honestly , I felt like I know her for a long time:) I actually always have anxiety at the doctor’s office, but not with her. After examine me, she offered to do endoscopy and I agreed. The day of the procedure , I was panicking, worry about how it will go, until I saw her:) She came to my room, asked me how I am doing, and smiled , her smile was promising :) she told me what I need to expect from the procedure, then she said, everything will be fine, and I said, “I trust you, doctor”:) The procedure went perfect, everybody were so attentive, kind, nice, prompt. Incredible experience from A-Z!!! From now on, she is my gastroenterologist , ( of course, God forbid that I will have problem), but if so, I will only go to her! Very calm, knowledgable , organised doctor!!! Thank you for a good news Dr. Vanesko, I got my endoscopy results and everything is good!"

About 15 minutes. Finally they called me, I went to the prep room. My vitals were taken and the IV drip was started.. Dr Vanesko came into the room, she explained what she would be doing and asked me if I had any questions, of course I did. She answered them and I waited for the nurse to wheel me into the procedure room. The nurses and anesthesiologist were very kind and explained what they were going to do. All went well, although Dr Vanesko has given me 4 colonoscopies, I get the same excellent service and treatment every time. Thank you TDDC and Dr Vanesko's staff for the excellent service.
