Dr Orleans is a very thorough and concerned doctor. He cares about his patients. He has a very quiet bedside manner which some people discern as not caring or impersonal. I usually like an outgoing type doctor but after getting to know Dr Orleans I have learned that his personality is genuine and he really cares about you and wants to help in every way possible. He is quiet because he wants to hear what you have to say. He is a thinker, not a talker. He found my cancer & saved my life. I suggest you explain your symptoms in detail and don't be afraid to ask questions. His nurses are very caring as well and has always been very prompt in returning calls, refilling prescriptions, scheduling tests, etc. They stay long after the office closes to make sure the patients are taken care of. Dr Orleans works very long hours. I have been going to him for years now and he has performed many procedures and tests on me and my family and I highly recommend him. He is also highly recommended by other doctors. Please don't let the negative comments from others on here keep you from going to see him. He is a very intelligent doctor. Take time to get to know him and you will see what a great doctor he is.

Not So Good

Would not recommend as my wife went in for routine colonoscopy and came out with 10" of her good colon having to be removed as it was torn when Orleans removed tube. She has not been same since (has been a few years).

Apparently he does not treat all of his patients like the below reviewer. I never received any phone calls or feedback from the doctor after my procedure. His personality is not that great either..could do more to put you at ease and show concern. There are better GI's out there than this.

Good doctor. I have been having the same problem for years. Prior to Dr. Orleans, no one could figure it out. He called me at 8PM one evening to find out how I was doing and talk to me about results. I was surprised he was still in the office. He told me that he usually stays late, reviewing results and charts.

My first visit to an Gastroentrologist was with Dr. Orleans.

It was a very busy Friday afternoon; the staff was curteous and very busy. Getting my information on a first visit and pulling my file from another doctor in the same offices and has treated me for over 5 years. Meeting him was a pleasure; he is kind and patient, went right to the problem and told us what we needed to do and gave me an RX for the treatment and healing of damage acid reflux can cause. He is going to scope with a light down my throat and see what is causing reflux; streach my throat a little to stop whatever is causing the foot to get stuck in my throat. The Rx he gave me will also help my sinus from draining and the fluid in my ears,, might even help my loss of hearing.
