I have been going to Dr. Venturatos for over 20 years. Dr. Venturatos is the Best! Unfortunately he’s retiring, they have a great staff of Doctors. Everyone at The Metropolitan Gastroenterology Center has always been professional. I highly recommend their Doctors. They have a first class brand new Procedure Center that is easily accessible. They moved their office to the corner of Barataria Blvd. and Wichers in Marrero.
