    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

I met Dr. Danesh about 8 years ago in the hospital. I was in there because of heart issues at the time , but I had had major stomach issues as well. I was in my 20's. He came in with his "team" and put it to me straight (why I was having problems). He is EXTREMELY thorough. I have developed more serious gastro problems since meeting him and he has guided me through all of it and sent me to the best specialists that he knows (in the city). He got me appointments within days. He instills the fear of God in me..hahaha...but he is also a very kind doctor underneath it all. He has a no nonsense attitude though. The wait time in the office is awful...prepare to lose hours of your life, but when you finally see him, he will take all the time in the world to explain everything in full detail to you. I have seen many doctors over my short lifetime and I trust almost none of them. He is a "good egg" and he is the hardest working doctor I have ever met! you are in good hands with him.

I had a appointment today @ 3:00 I finally left after waiting for 1 1/2 hours and being told soon, the waiting room was so full and no seats available. I do not think this is acceptable to wait this long! !
