Honestly one of the best experiences all around that I have had by a health care team in the Philly area. From the first person I talked to at the desk, to the last person I talked to before going to get blood work, everyone was efficient and friendly. I was surprised at how quickly I was seen and how quickly the blood work was done. The care provider I had in particular is one of the most friendly and caring physicians I have gone to

Dr. Horowitz is the best doctor I have ever had. She is thorough, she found two hidden precancerous polyps that were missed 6 months prior. She also explains everything in a way that I can understand.

Dr. Brenda Horwitz is probably one of the very Best Doctors I have ever seen in my life. She took my problem seriously and did what she had to, to get me an answer when no other doctor could tell me what was wrong with me! We finally figured out what was wrong with me and I am taking medication for it now. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has a GI issue!
