Janis Mennite (Scotts Valley, California) says...
Dr. Torosis and Nurse Antoinett (Annie), and the procedure room nurse (so sorry not remembering your name) of Atherton Endoscopy Center in Atherton, CA, all provided excellent care. Nothing hurt at all, unlike previous procedures. (Except the horrid prep solution--yikes!) The procedure actually was surprisingly pleasant. No pain for the first time, or at least no memory of any.:) Thank you, Dr. Torosis, nurses, and all of the wonderful professionals at Atherton Endoscopy and Colonoscopy Assist. :-) Thank you to Colonoscopy Assist and to all of the excellent physicians working with Colonoscopy Assist!!

Colonoscopy assist is a wonderful program. I really expected it to be to good to be true. With such a tremendous savings I expected that it would not go as advertised but nothing could be further from the truth. The Colonoscopy assist team handled everything and I was constantly kept up to date. My participating medical office was the The Center For Gastrointestinal Disorders in Hollywood Florida. Dr Lamet and his entire team could not have been nicer and more caring. They never asked once for any insurance info. or any additional payments.

As someone uninsured, I would not have been able to get a colonoscopy if I had not found out about this program. The entire team at Triangle Gastro in Raleigh was wonderful and I am grateful they are participating in this program. The team at Colonoscopy Assist as well are very helpful, knowledgeable, and polite.

Lisa (Taylorsville,) says...
I found it absolutely awesome. I had no problem w/ prep at all. The nurse from Dr. Shapiro office, great. The Dr. himself, Shapiro was excellent and his nurse Kevin. They both helped me to feel comfortable w/ the meds. given, explanation of ongoing procedure and the nurse Tebow and the secretary, Janice, awesome w/ everyone. Valentine's Day to remember, it was my first. Everyone I encountered w/ was great. The program was so affordable this way, especially when you don't have insurance because of other health issues. Marketing more will be helpful for so many.

There is only one complaint. Why don't more people know about you?!! The level of communication and preparation as to what to expect was excellent. The facility I went to was well informed as to my arrival and my history. There is no reason to go anywhere else for a colonoscopy.

Thank you so much. Everything went smoothly. Everything was done professionally. I have no side effects and it's been 13 days since my colonoscopy. I love this service as it gives an opportunity for the uninsured to receive such care at an affordable price. I highly recommend it.
