"I’ve been Dr. Petro’s patient since my family & I moved to the area a few years ago. Having formerly worked as an RN in recovery of an ambulatory outpatient clinic prior to our move, I was already familiar with the GI setting. I’m happy to say that I highly recommend Dr. Petro to anyone looking for a great GI physician! She is professional, knowledgeable, spends adequate time communicating with her patients over their GI concerns, provides a thorough assessment of her patients & provides medical treatment accordingly. Dr. Petro clearly communicates test results, plan of care with details & she/staff follow up promptly. She is easily accessible through her staff & accommodating to her patients GI medical needs. I have found wait times for scheduling an appointment as well as wait times to be seen to have been well within a reasonable timeframe. The facility where she practices has a comfortable & pleasant environment with professional, courteous & helpful staff members. They also offer various services at the same location for patient convenience. I highly recommend Dr. Petro!"

"The experience was very professional and painless. The newer anesthesia was great, with minimal post-op grogginess. Dr. Petro is fantastic."
"My experience with Dr. Petro was wonderful; it was a night and day difference from my experience with the previous gastroenterologist who had performed my previous three colonoscopies. Before making an appointment with Dr. Petro, I did some research and learned that she was extremely competent, well thought of by her colleagues and patients, had excellent reviews for her academic (research) work as well as for her private practice, and had extremely high professional and personal ethics.
I was very impressed with the staff at the GI Associates Endoscopy Center in Madison, from the intake clerk to the post-procedure nursing care. The nurses were very courteous, professional, and efficient. easy to talk with, and compassionate. They exhibited compassion, a true servant’s heart, and the best in all aspects of patient care. They were easy to talk with, had a good sense of humor and liked to laugh (which I consider to be a sign of good mental health), and made me feel that I was safe and secure, and (to borrow a phrase from an Allstate Insurance Company commercial) that I was in good hands.
Likewise, the staff in the procedure room were just as caring and competent, and I appreciated the anesthesia they provided. I remember nothing and, more importantly, felt nothing. It was good to have a few minutes with Dr. Petro before the procedure started and for her to go over what she would do chronologically and then give me as much time as I needed to ask questions, but I don’t recall having any. I do remember her smiling and I appreciated that. I like to see people smiling, particularly my doctors, and particularly before they’re getting ready to do something to my body. It was a friendly smile and was comforting to see before I went to sleep.
The report I received afterwards from Dr. Petro was very thorough and included color pictures (suitable for framing) of everything she removed. Since 1995, I have had a colonoscopy every three years, and as long as I continue to live in this area, I will continue to ask Dr. Petro to perform them for me. She has earned my trust for which I am very thankful."
"I have been using GI Associates for several years now. I have always gotten great service there. Beginning with Dr Johnston in 2010 to Dr Petro 2011 until now have always gotten great care."

"Dr. Petro is a fabulous doctor. She’s a wonderful care-giver. She insists on a diagnostic test if she thinks there’s even a slight chance there might be something wrong. This characteristic alone puts her in a higher class of doctor. I have found there are other gastroenterologists who are not quite as willing to prescribe a colonoscopy or an endoscopy - and these tests are priceless! Dr. Petro makes being a patient almost an easy thing. She’s pleasant to talk to. She’s great!"

"Great service with a lot of smiles!
Reception was very friendly and personable. Great sense of humor as well as good service!
I had expected, like you do at any medical facility, to wait at least an hour past my scheduled procedure time but I was in the back and in my “modesty” gown on time.
The nurses were friendly and very communicative which helped me to be relaxed about a procedure that can cause most people a great deal of anxiety.
Dr. Petro took more time than I would have expected to explain the procedure which was appreciated. After the procedure she explained everything very clearly. Service with a smile doesn’t begin to explain it. Dr. Petro just seemed to be in such a good mood I, again, was made to feel very calm and comfortable.
Perfect bedside manner from everyone and prompt service. What more could you ask for?"
"Dr. Petro was very patient, caring and explained everything I needed to know. There were no questions left to ask. She took time with me and I never felt like she was in a hurry. I would definitely recommend Dr. Petro for any type of GI procedure. She has a beautiful smile which makes you feel comfortable and sets you at ease."

"Dr. Petro is very knowledgeable and she believes in trying medicine first, before a lot of expensive tests. Of course that is my experience. Someone else’s problem may have a different outcome. But I trust that she would do whatever necessary to treat the problem."
"The doctor and all of her staff were kind and treated me with respect. I think all of my questions were answered and procedures explained."
"As I received this email to share my experience at G.I. Associates yesterday, I was writing a thank you card to Dr. Petro and staff. This is what I am writing in the card:
I told them I wanted to thank them for their special care for me when I came for a colonoscopy. Every one on staff was extremely professional and so kind and compassionate.
I thanked them for the important service they provide to others.
In Christ Alone,
"Very pleasant. Doesn't rush you out of her office like most doctors. She has a very good bedside manner and excellent skills."
