"Special thanks to Brandi at registration, Tiffany at pre-op, and Kim in recovery. All were so nice and attentive. What a great team. The anesthesia dept.. was nice for the short amount of time I was awake with them but I really feel I may have been given too much this time. Wasn't right until late evening. Dr. Lacey was his usual utmost professional self. I highly recommend this friendly, intelligent, and caring doctor. I wish more were like him."

"Dr Lacey is by far the best doctor that I had for my entire life . He is absolutely professional, knowledgeable, caring …. He is one of those doctors that truly don’t even exist anymore! He is someone who is spectacular at what he does but he is still a real human who holds great values and manners that sadly is rarely found at physicians now a days ! If you are lucky to be one of Dr Lacey’s patients then you are lucky enough and in safe hands definitely!"

"I've was born with a great deal of medical challenges as a result I've met with alot of doctor's. Exceptional doctors are very rare. I was so blessed to meet doctor Lacy's team when I nearly died choking on food. My esophagus had narrowed so much I couldn't even swallow one small pill without some difficulty. My esophagus was smaller than the diameter of a pinky finger. Six months later I have zero issues swallowing and can take about 7 pills at the same time with no difficulty. I also have horrible bowel issues and have had a colostomy twice in my life. He also helped me a great deal as well identifying that I have IBS ( Irritable bowel syndrome). So within a years time my quality of life has improved dramatically. So not only did he save my life but gave me back quality of life. Not only is he a great doctor he is passionate, caring, listens & just an amazing person. I would recommend him & his team to friends, family, strangers or anyone needing to find a Gastrologist. In 46 years of medical challenges he his at the top of my list. I am extremely blessed."

"I’ve been a patient of Dr. Lacey since 1999 and could not be happier with his care and medical staff. They assisted me in the early days of my illness and diagnosis, corrected the misdiagnosis I received when I was treated in Utah, and have worked closely with me to ensure the best of health. TDDC and Dr. Lacey go above and beyond in taking care of the patient, from the warm greeting by their receptionists to the nurses (Marcia is fabulous) down to Cindy and the other scheduling staff who are prompt, efficient and always helpful. They have saved my life and Now even do my husband’s annual colonoscopy. There is no one we appreciate as much as Dr. Lacey’s medical expertise."

"I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful Dr. Lacey is. After being with the same GI doctor for the past 10 years I was needing a fresher outlook and no nonsense answers to serious questions. Before choosing a new GI doctor, I read several reviews and did research on my top picked doctors. Dr. Lacey had a lot of qualities and the experience I was looking for. He was booked out several weeks for new patients but I chose to wait it out and he was worth the wait. During my initial visit, he listened to my concerns and gave honest feedback. I felt so comfortable with him, never felt rushed and truly feel that he was concerned and wanted to get me all fixed up. I’m looking forward to his expertise and knowledge."
