Reviews for ADH Mesa - Baseline 603
"Everyone at AZ Digestive Health are very caring, professional and responsive to patient needs. They have really helped me tremendously with my digestive issues."
"Dr Saperstein is excellent. I’ve been going to him for over ten years."
"All the staff were professional and very kind. My doctor The best."
"Super friendly and on time. Spent plenty of time asking me questions."
"I saw Laurie Peterson for the first time yesterday and am so grateful I did. She didn’t want to settle on a diagnosis, give me medication, and send me on my way like most doctors do. She gave me a lot of helpful information about my situation that my previous doctor (who diagnosed me) didn’t even tell me. She believes in finding the root cause of the issue, rather than just treating the symptoms at hand to make you feel like you’re getting better when really the issue is still there. When I left the office, I immediately called my mom in happy tears because I was so thankful to have found someone who genuinely cares and has a plan of action! I feel very good about my treatment going forward. As someone who’s been to several different facilities over the last decade, I can confidently say this office provided the best healthcare I’ve experienced in a long time."

"Dr. Sawyer spent a significant amount of time reviewing my history, asking questions and understanding my needs. Not the typical 2-5 minutes most doctors take. Highly recommended."
"Staff was very friendly an did not rush me through. Dr took his time to explain procedure."
"During my initial consultation, Dr. Verma answered every question in terms that I and my wife could easily understand. He also explained why using SUPREP (Soo-prep) Bowel Prep Kit was more effective in helping to ensure that the bowels would be completely evacuated. Although I followed the preparation procedures to the letter, Dr. Verma was concerned that because of my specific combination of other health conditions, that it would be preferable, out of an abundance of caution, to delay my procedure by an additional hour. During that delay he stopped by several times to reassure me. I appreciated the personalized care and attention provided by Dr. Verma and his assistants, the Nurses and other support staff and was discharged with only a slight delay from what had been anticipated. All said, the thought of a "Colonoscopy" is a lot less concerning than it used to be. A big thanks to all who made that possible!!! :)"
"I have been going to Dr. Grade for about 20 years I like him as my doctor I think he does an awesome job, I like amazing doctor and I trust him and what he says"
"Dr. Grade Has only been my doctor for a short period but it feels like I've known him for a lot longer. He is such a caring man and can easily establish a perfect doctor-patient relationship. He is very easy to talk to which made me feel comfortable when he diagnosed my symptoms. Dr. Grade has always gone above and beyond when treatment is involved. Because of these great traits, I feel like he saved my life. Thank You so much Dr. Grade and God Bless you 🙏."

"Very nice to find a specialist doctor that treats you like a human and not just a number. I Never felt rushed during my appointment and he answered all my questions. He went over step by step as to why a procedure needed to be done. With all the information written below, I will still stay with this doctor forever. However the employee at the check out desk was completely the opposite. The few questions I asked her seemed to annoy her. I needed paperwork for my labs, ultra sound and date & time for my procedure. She never looked up at me or gave me eye contact. When I asked a question, she would interrupt me and would ask "Do you know where they are located?" Before I could answer she would toss paperwork toward the counter at me. Then repeat. I just stopped and asking for anything. Regardless, I'm staying with this doctor."
