Most knowledgeable, caring gastroenterologist my husband and I have ever seen.

Dr. Fern stands head and shoulders above all the Gastroenterologist’s we’ve seen and we’ve been through quite a few. It’s not that the other doctor’s were bad necessarily, but more that Dr. Fern is a rare find in this day and age of doctors forced to take on too many patients and rush you through appointments. To the contrary, Dr. Fern spent time with us(we each had appointments with him)and shared extremely helpful knowledge that no other Dr. has ever shared. I could go on and on, but mainly we both wanted to sing his praises because our whole experience was amazing. My husband called him this morning with a serious problem and he didn’t pass him off to the ER, no he dealt with the issue himself. Dr. Fern is a godsend!

Great Experience

Very personable, takes his time with you. Doesn't pressure you about the diet and that it's all your fault because of what you eat. Very knowledgeable and seems to want to solve the problem. Explains the next steps.

Very bad experience

Think twice before you see this doctor. His staffs are very rude and unprofessional. They will give you wrong information and over-charge you!I had a Colonoscopy procedure done by this doctor. Before the procedure, I gave my insurance information (both primary and secondary) to the staff and asked them to check how much money I need to pay out of pocket. The staff told me, you do NOT need to pay anything. The insurance companies will cover everything. One month later, I was over-charged over $700 for everything (Endoscopy, Anesthesiology, and lab tests). Its a disaster to talk to the staffs and impossible to talk to the doctor.

One Star

This office staff is rude on a good day. They have no patient communication skills at all. They don't relay messages. I had to ask 5 times to have Dr Fern call me back and he never did. And then misdiagnosed my daughter's problem. I will never set foot in this office again.
