I'm too complicated

I have advanced GI disease. After reviewing the file from my previous doctor, his staff called to say this doctor wouldn't even see me because I'm too complicated. They suggested I go to the Mayo clinic. If he had actually read my file, he would have known I had already been and just needed a maintenance doctor. He wouldn't even help me with that, nor would he recommend someone.

Five Stars

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr Persich and his staff. Great communication before my procedure, and they followed up to check on me a few days later. Dr. Persich called me himself about the results of my biopsy. Highly recommend.

Saved my Life

Dr. Perisch is the Best. I had a severe case of Pancreatitis, I was out of work for 7 1/2 months, I got the absoulet best care from Dr. Persich and DR. Silvers. I have recommended this group to friends of mine and they have said the same thing that I did. When I couldn't see Dr. Persich in the hospital, Dr. Silvers came in he knew as much about me as Dr. Perisch did. They consult one another on their patients, so that they are both up to date. You can't find good Drs. like these two anymore. Their beside manner is wonderful, they always left me smiling.
