"We arrived early for a 1pm procedure. We were supposed to be there at noon but got there at 11:30-11:45. I was told, as the driver, to expect three texts. I got the first text before they ever took my husband back. By 3pm I had heard nothing and was about to look for someone to ask about the procedure. Then I received a text saying that they had begun the procedure and then 25 minutes later that he was in recovery and to go to the appointed door. Everything was okay as far as it all went but I think waiting two hours plus for a text and then getting the final text 25 minutes later for an hour procedure was a bit off putting. The results of the procedure were explained clearly and the nurse and doctor both seemed very caring. The whole procedure was not an unpleasant experience but it was not a 5 star experience."
"I had an appointment at a certain time. I was not called back to the room for over an hour them I waited in the room for 15 minutes. It would have been nice if I had been told there was a delay in seeing the doctor. Once I saw him all was good. He listened to my issues and recommended a course of action."
"Great experience. Dr Underwood is top notch!"
"From the time I made the appointment until I walked out after the procedure I felt like I was given the best possible information and the best possible care.

Got there at 9:04 was immediately received in, was complete and on my way home at 10:48 .Very short waiting time between processing in, filing out a short form, verifying information,,having vitals checked, waiting to see doctor, seeing doctor and scheduling next appt."
"Friendly staff. Nurse Practitioner Upchurch was very thorough explaining to me what to expect for my impending procedure. She addressed me with a smile and made me very comfortable. Even when setting up my appointment the lady that assisted me was awesome 👏🏽!! Wish I could remember her name. We talked about her daughter being in the service and me being a veteran. Hands down GI Associates clinic has the best staff ever!! Even the lady that greets you as soon as you walk in the building was great. Wish other clinics could pattern their customer experience with GI Associates!! Good Job 👍🏾!!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed my appointment. Dr. Underwood did something that a lot of doctors won’t do. He offered possible explanations to the problems I was having with things beyond the medical field or in other words, that would make him money. I could tell he was genuinely concerned with my well being and wanted to just help me anyway he could. We conversed about how the social constructs formed today can make it seem like we aren’t eating right rather than running test on me. He gave me clarity to what I’m going through and I walked out feeling much better about it."
"The staff is amazing. My anesthesiologist and Dr. Underwood were great. I know I got the best care possible. I highly recommend G.I. Associates."
"My experience last week was extraordinary from the moment of scheduling to the time I drove away. Dr. Underwood and the staff at GI are the kind of people who demonstrated compassion and treated me as if they knew me personally. Not only their kindness but the fact that I did not have to wait for the diagnosis to arrive in the mail days or even weeks later is a godsend. I am impressed and so very grateful!! God bless you all."
