Gastroenterology reviews in Virginia Beach

    Waldholtz, Dr. Bruce D
    They're terrific. I would give A+ all the way round. They're very smart. They really know what they're doing. They're very thorough. They call you back and they really do care about their patients. They take outstanding care of all their patients.

    Waldholtz, Dr. Bruce D
    Dr. Waldholtz is an absolutely outstanding gastroenterologist. His entire group and all the staff in the office were just fabulous. Dr. Waldholtz is just very thorough. He's very personable and he's in touch with each of his patients. He gives me plenty of time. When he's with me, he's very focused on what's going on with me and what I need. The office environment is outstanding. It's just super. He has a good bedside manner and a good follow-up.

    Shoemaker, Dr. Garry C.
    Takes a little time to get appointments, but these providers are very busy. Ditto their busy staff...takes a little while to connect with someone or get a call back when there are questions. Procedures no longer handled at Independence office, but no problem to go to Princess Anne area office. Waiting room tends to be loud with TV, people using cell phones and/or talking loudly. Procedure prep/recovery spaces have curtain closures that are sometimes left open...lack of privacy is a little disconcerting, but not too bad. Staff is professional and friendly. Dr. Salcedo is excellent! I will see her again if/when necessary and will certainly recommend.

    Dr. Jacqueline Salcedo is excellent! The pre-exam appointment was very informative. Appointments are pretty far out on the calendar, but that is the case with gastro offices in general. A bit difficult to contact staff with questions, but they are very busy. Exam report did not get forwarded to my PCP as requested. The prep cubicles are not very private (curtains sometimes left open) Waiting room blares television and people talking loudly on cell phones (not comfortable for waiting husband). The procedure was very easy and quick. Attending staff very good. I will definitely see Dr. Salcedo again and recommend her to others.

    Kauffman, Dr. Jeffrey H.
    When I went into the office, the woman at the desk was friendly and talkative. She paid attention, had me fill out some forms and I had a very short wait even tho I got there early. The nurse was helpful with my coat and asked if I need anything carried for me. Dr. Kauffman came in just a few minutes later. When I left, the receptionist was friendly, too, and I was out of there, satisfied, in less than an hour.

    The prep instruction is very discouraging. I know it was to be uncomfortable, but there are no guidelines along the way to determine if it is effective. My prep started at 4 pm. I've since learned online that one can have a better prep by having a fiber free diet for three days prior. I didn't start seeing any action until almost 9:30pm. No one told me what alterations I should make to the prep if it doesn't start working within a certain period of time. Again, my own research online also told me that if the prep results are still brown versus yellow or clear, the prep would need to be adjusted in time to have a good prep before the procedure. This practice did not give me any such coaching or encouragement.
    I arrive for my appointment, again there is no question about the results of my prep. I mean at this point they could have determined if it was going to be successful and together we could have come to a decision whether to proceed. No identification bands. I work in the healthcare field and anytime an invasive, non-cognitive procedure is being performed, static patient id has to be available.
    He said he hadn't seen me for awhile. I told him I thought I hadn't met him before. He said he did my last procedure. I apologized for not recognizing him and went home to research my old paperwork that said last time I had a colonoscopy it was with Dr. Janson. Dr. Kaufman lied.
    The drugs didn't work. I felt everything. I stayed perfectly still with my eyes closed. It was painful. When he was done, he said it was worthless, the preparation was insufficient. I'd have to come back in six months and prep for 2 days, like a punishment.
    I had to nap 4 hours later and find another gastroenterologist. Research the prep stuff and make them tell you what they want you to do if it looks like the prep is not going to be complete. No one wants to do this more than they have to.

    Both colonoscopy surgeries went like clockwork by our doctor, J. Sumner Bell, MD.. We were scheduled to have the colonoscopies done in the hospital and everything from the receptionists to the nurses at the hospital were kind and attentive. We did not have to wait, the doctor took us into the operating room on time and corrected minor things during the surgery. My husbands surgery was more involved as he was having gastric problems so the doctor came to see me and discussed the fact that he was going to look at his stomach as well as my husband was complaining of H Pylori. The doctor found gastritis, duodenitis and gave post-operative treatment. He also removed polyps when they were located.
    We both had wonderful experiences and will continue to use him as our gastrointerologist.

    Kauffman, Dr. Jeffrey H.
    He is excellent and he's really thorough. He keeps a tab on it i.e. if he doesn't like what he sees he makes us do it again the next year. My husband had to have one much sooner than I did because I had some issues. He is a good doctor and he makes it so easy for us. He used to be at Virginia Beach where we had to go to the outpatient thing but now he's got the whole thing set up in his office building and it's fabulous. He has good anesthesia people who administer that and he does the process and then we go into a recovery room. They have expanded his office so that he could do it in his office. Unless he does surgery he probably doesn't make hospital rounds which is very time-consuming for a doctor. He's made it assessable for his patients. He talks to the patients after the procedure. They take the pictures inside and he shows it to the patients and if there is a problem he explains it and he'll take care of it. He gives instructions when we leave. We've never had a problem getting appointments. His office is clean and it is immaculate. He is very punctual. His staff is nice and they work out the appointments for us. It's always been pretty easy with his office. He's professional and his bedside manner is great. We wouldn't go to anyone else.
