Gastroenterology reviews in Tallahassee

    very poorly. dr. singh and todd chernicek presented poor follow up. arrogance, condescending advice. poor listeners. the doctor looked at his computer the whole time instead of me. i am getting competent care from another gastroenterologist in tallahassee now. don't go to these people.

    My husband died, in severe back pain, unnecessarily. Dr Leichus showed no compassion and never even wanted to see his patients. He does rounds at 5 or 5:30 am so patient is asleep and no family member present. He orders surgeries but won't make himself available if there are complications. He would probably be an excellent battlefield surgeon but he's not a doctor you should choose for long term care.

    The visit went very well. We were seen on time and the procedure went smoothly. The doctor saw us before we were released and explained things in plain English which we appreciated very much.

    He accurately diagnosed a hiatal hernia and esophogial ulcers, a diagnosis which proved accurate through further tests. He also explained why it caused all those strange and unrelated symptoms. He has been treating me, and my symptoms have nearly all disappeared. He has also been willing to listen about my desire for alternate treatments, carefully explaining the pluses and minuses without dismissing my concerns about taking medication.
    He seemed a bit abrupt at first, but he warmed up as I asked questions, and I felt more at ease. He willingly answered questions I asked, and displayed a reserved sense of humor. He really seems to know his stuff and was up-to-date on the latest research and treatments. I like him more each time I visit his office.
    His outer office staff seemed a bit cool, impersonable, and perhaps overworked. His inner office staff was warm, friendly, and very supportive.

    I was referred to the DDC for a second ten year routine exam. I talked to the billing office to ask about the payments and the exact status of the insurance (Blue Cross/ Blue Shield) and how much I would have to pay in co pay amounts. The Billing office talked with me and told me the amount I would need to pay and I paid it prior to the appointment.







    On the morning of the procedure, my name was called and the desk staff said that I would have to pay $170.00 right then and there - before the procedure. I told them I had talked with the Business office, and that I had already paid the amount they said I would owe.







    The Desk Staff said they didn't know anything about it and that I would have to pay the $170.00 prior to the procedure.



    Since I was already there, and already had prepped with the solutions etc. I wrote a check for the $170.00 and went into the procedure. I was perturbed at that time because I wanted to get the fees out of the way ahead of time. What were these fees for?



    The Desk Staff simply said I had to pay and quot;firstand quot; -- period.







    Two weeks after the procedure, I got another bill for $200.00. What? I called the business office the next day and was told that this was a separate fee, an extra fee because of a prior condition. This prior condition was over 20 years earlier and the business office knew of it as I talked to them about it during my initial conversation.







    The final insult was that they refused to offer any explanation as to why these extra fees could not have been configured into the equation. My feeling here is that this office tacks on fees and most patients just pay it without question. It is outrageous that such is the case when every care is taken to get the fees paid ahead of time. And, using some excuse about insurance is not acceptable as the business office should have a handle on the processes of Blue Cross Blue Shield. This is not some obscure insurance and their policies are very well established.







    I feel very strongly that there are some irregularities here and that the Clinic is simply not owning up to them. And then they use their power to make collections and derogatory remarks on the credit report. The patient has little power to fight back on this and simply are pawns to a system that is geared to take advantage of its patients.







    Even after seven years of trying to get to the bottom of it, I had no luck and had to pay. I will never go back there. I don't trust them!

    As soon as the appointment was scheduled, I received an e-mail asking me
    to download forms to fill out and bring to the appointment.
    When I arrived for my appointment, they took the forms and I was led back to an
    examination room within 15 minutes where a nurse asked questions and
    took notes. About a half hour later, Dr Paulk came in and asked
    questions. He seemed like he really cared for me as a patient. After
    the discussion and a brief exam, he stated that he thought I had not
    been bleeding, but to be sure, he wanted to do an upper endoscopy. The
    nurse came back and scheduled it for the following Friday. I was given a
    handout explaining the procedure and telling me not to eat after
    midnight the night before or drink any liquids 3 hours before the
    procedure.
    On the day of the procedure, I arrived and was almost
    immediately taken to a room where a nurse asked several questions about
    my current health, allergies, etc. I was sent back to the waiting room
    where I waited for and empty bed. I was then told to take off my shirt
    and any jewelry and shoes and put on their booties and a gown. The
    nurse put me in a bed and started an IV. 20 minutes later, I was
    wheeled into the OR where Dr. Paulk asked me some of the same questions
    and explained what he was going to do. They then knocked me out and I
    awoke sometime later in the recovery room. Dr. Paulk was there when I
    awoke and told me that everything was OK. He gave me a report on the
    procedure and the results.
    All in all this was a very professional undertaking and everyone involved with my visits was friendly and informative and I felt very well cared for the entire time.

    I didn't like anything about him. He is very difficult to talk to and he doesn't say much. He's very quick to give you medication and tell you to come back in three months. If what he gives you doesn't work he'll give you some other medicine and tell you to come back again in three months. He's very difficult and as far as effectiveness I ended up going someplace else and they dealt with it very quickly. It's very difficult to get an appointment there and even his staff is difficult to be effective. I wasn't even seeing him most of the time. It was a physician assistant who was doing the same thing of here's some medicine and come back in six weeks or whatever, but it didn't work and you'll go back again. I ended up losing 20 to 30 pounds because I couldn't eat. He is supposed to be very knowledgeable, but the way he runs his office is poor because you'll sit for hours. To get an appointment you're looking at six weeks and he has zero bedside manner.

    I dislike that he's so busy but I still get to see him and usually just about on time. He seems to be quite knowledgeable and he treats a patient as an individual. He's a bit abrupt but that's his style...he's pretty straightforward, which I appreciate. A lot of people might not like that. His communication is quite effective.

    I had a bout with a viral infection and needed to see a Gastroenterologist to confirm if my liver was functioning correctly or not. I was referred over to Dr. Leichus by my Primary Care physician and I couldn't be happier. He and his staff are extremely efficient and friendly, and you always feel like you are in good hands while you are there. Dr. Leichus is great to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. Very thankful I lucked into him as my Gastroenterologist.

    Dr. Webster is a very knowledgeable doctor. I had suffered for months with intense, intermittent side pain. After ordering several tests, he conducted both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and determined that the issue was being caused by gastric reflux and other complications. After treatment for many months, the issue has been resolved and we have determined which food was triggering the problem. Now, I can stay healthy by avoiding that food.
