Terrible gastroentrology practice. Like most specialist practices the doctor in largely unavailable for face to face consultation. The several times over the past 10 years I've had procedures done the doctor will offer his consult on the procedure results moments after I've regained consciousness and still in a propofal haze, never asking my wife -who has been in the waiting room - to be present so someone can comprehend his consultation. For a recent appointment the office called while I was on my way (I live an hour distant) to cancel because the P.A. was sick and apparently there was no one else in this large practice who could cover, yet when I tried to cancel an appointment with the P.A. over 24 hours in advance I was billed for $50. and told that I could not make an appointment until the bill was paid. This is a terribly impersonal and unhelpful practice, and the gastroentrologist who I've seen has nothing to offer but prescriptions - no other advice whatsoever and no communication . Find a practice where the doctors have an interest in communicating with and helping their patients.
Terrible experience. The office diagnosed me w SIBO but didn't complete the full & accurate testing to give that diagnosis. He gave me a partial round of antibiotics. The next time he saw me he asked if I felt better and when I said no, he said well bloating is inconvenient but not a real problem and offered no more assistance. What gasteroenterologist says that?

With my experience and others that I have talked to, whom have had the same experience i had with this doctor, is that he will discharge you if you tell him you do not want to do something and want to do an alternative method. I feel that all he wants to do is surgery and spends minimal time visiting with the patient for office visits. I feel that his knowledge is low and that he should not have a doctoral degree.
You and your staff were just super. Thanking you personally for your attention and discussion post procedure. (Not my favorite procedure!)
This has been my third time having a procedure with Dr. Cherpak. I cannot say enough about the process and the ease of each procedure due to the wonderful staff and the thoroughness of Dr. Cherpak. He took as much time as I needed to ask questions and gave me detailed answers. He is kind and I never felt rushed at all. Wait time has never been an issue and the staff, both at the office and the facility at the business park, were excellent.
I would never chose this doctor again.
