What our Patients are saying

Testimonial quote mark

Dr. Curtis, along with being an excellent doctor, is also a Crohn’s specialist and knows just about everything there is to know about the disease. He is very professional, polite, and always follows up with his patients with phone calls and letters. He will do everything in his power to make sure his patients get better. I’m so glad I found Dr. Curtis…he saved my life.

My husband and I both see Dr. Bailen and we both love him! He has a fantastic bedside manner and is very personable. He takes the time to explain what is wrong and will weigh the pros and cons with you. I absolutely love Dr. Bailen and have referred several friends to him and they have been completely satisfied with him as well. He is a FANTASTIC doctor.

Dr. Lee is a Gastroenterologist and is absolutely wonderful! He makes me almost enjoy my doctors apts! He is thorough, does not rush you, answers all your questions, without making you feel stupid, and even calls you a few days later to check in. His diagnoses have always been spot on, as well as his treatment plans. I wish he could be my PCP!!”
