"My whole procedure was seemless. Their system is organized and went smoothly. I never experienced any pain or side effects. Staff was friendly. Got the pathology report quickly. I have had many colonoscopies in my life and this whole experience was by far the best one."

"I arrived for my appointment early, checked in with the very pleasant receptionist. I was called for my appointment right on time. Vitals, etc, were taken right away and Dr saw me within 5 minutes of that. All in all not a bad day."

"I've had several colonoscopies. This one had more more detailed directions for the week before than ever before with days of dietary restrictions. But that was supposed to make for a more accurate reading, so it's worth it. I had to drink half the solution the evening before the procedure and then get up at 5am to drink the rest (5 hours before my appointment). For the first time the solution did its job without making me feel sick. My appointment ran late, and my husband was called to pick me up when I was supposedly done a good 40 minutes too early. But the staff was kind and caring and professional."

"Staff was professional and the environment was full of joy and some jokes ( the nurses who spoke to me in the beginning). Each part of the team explained every part of the process. Asked if I had any questions during each step. Dr. Tan spoke to me about my previous procedure results. After this current procedure he explained the results and biopsy sent to the lab for results. Paul had a challenging time to get my veins to pop up but he persisted and got it the first time- a real pro. The anesthesiologist explained the medication she was using. Asked me several questions and asked me if I had any questions. She warned me about a slight burning sensation and boom I was out. I recommended this office to triwest and told them you all rock."

"The staff who checked me in, (didn’t give me her name) was very helpful. The nurse, Paul, who did the interview, took my vitals, prep me, was very efficient and answered all my questions. He was very gentle and explained what he was doing to me as he was prepping me. He made sure I was comfortable and allay my fears and anxiety. Nurse Julie called me the afternoon before my procedure and made sure I have all I need for my prep. She was amazing that morning, made me feel comfortable as she was putting me to sleep ( for lack of a better word.) Over all my experience in the clinic was excellent! Dr. Tan and his staff were great."

"The dr and the nursing staff that takes care of you for procedures were kind, polite, and seemed to generally care about you. The front office staff is a complete nightmare. They were rude and Snarky, treated me like I wasn’t worth their time. On a call with the prep receptionist the woman accidentally disconnected the call, and never called me back. I also had issues with the front office staff not emailing me the prep instructions for colonoscopy. Was supposed to have it 7 days before the colonoscopy. Only received it after having to make 2 phone calls. Thankfully the dr and nurses are all wonderful."

"An excellent experience from the woman on the phone to the Doctor himself. Paul and Amber were superb nurses, worked well together and very personable and likeable. Justin, the nurse anesthesia was a hoot. Had a sense of humor but knew what he was doing. Dr. Tan seemed like a younger version of Dr. Yes, very competent but also very human!! All in all a 5+ experience for a not so pretty procedure, l will be back in 5 years."
