Dr. John P Waring has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    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. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Dr. Waring is very professional, caring, sympathetic, and very knowledgeable about his profession! I have suffered with Gastro paresis since 2001 and had many different types and forms of therapy including a gastric enterra device. This man is the only one that has been able to get me some relief. He has all kinds of tricks to try that I didn't even know existed. He never gives up and encourages his patients to do the same. I drive 4 hours to see him and would drive 10 if I had to.

Not Good Experience

I unfortunately didn't have a good experience with Dr Waring. I went to see him due to stomach pain and inability to eat since the reviews were good. My first visit he jumped right to thinking I had gastroparesis and ordered a GES. My GES came back normal. He then gave me an antidepressant and told me to drink nutritional drinks and see him back in a few weeks to follow up and change medication dose if needed. It was frustrating because he didn't run any more tests and sent me a away with medication and told me to drink Ensure's. I really thought this doctor was going to help me. I'm sitting here losing weight, barely eating and have pain when I try to eat or drink. I will say he was nice and had good bedside manner, but I think he was completely clueless on how to help me. I wish he would have helped me more :(

Good Luck

This is probably the most unprofessional doctors office I've ever come across. On the advice of my primary doc, attempted to schedule a routine colonoscopy. Was routed to the voice mail of the Dr Waring's nurse. A few days went by with no call back. This continued each time i tried to call back. Same situation with the individual who was responsible for insurance pre-cert. Promised a call back the following day, and after a week or so when I followed up, didn't know who i was. I'd finally had enough. Asked to speak to practice manager to let them know precisely why they'd lost a patent. Guess what. No call back. Really makes me wonder what kind of treatment i would have received if I'd stayed with them.
