"Dr. Wait is a phenomenal doctor! She will listen, consult, and attempt to solve your stomach issues. She goes out of her way to assist you in obtaining the proper meds. You will be completely satisfied with her if you are lucky enough to get an appt. She's often booked up. However she is totally worth the wait."

"Dr. Wait is the BEST doctor I have ever had. I have been a patient for over 25 years. She is very compassionate, knowledgeable and is very easy to talk with. She is one of the few doctors that actually cares about her patients and their well being. I have a rare gene that she detected many years ago. If it wasnt for her, I probably would not be alive today. SHE IS THE BEST!!!!"

"Dr. Wait is hands down the best doctor I have ever seen. She is very patient, thorough and informative. She spends time, as much as needed, to diagnose and treat patients. One visit was an hour and she asked a ton of questions to get to the root cause of my issues. I have never had a Dr. make return calls so quickly either. Her nurse is amazing as well. I, as well as my husband will not go to anyone else for gastroenterology needs. She is amazing and it is very difficult to find a DR who cares so much about their patients."

"Dr. Cynthia Wait not only has the education and years of experience in her field, she also continues to improve her skills by staying up to currentlyon the latest studies, procedures android research findings. I originally met her when my daughter was referred to see a G.I. M.D. concerning an adolescent gastric situation. She treated my daughter as if she was one of her children.
