  • “I was able to get in to see Dr. Stephen immediately after calling numerous gastro doctors and being told to wait 1-2 months.  The office was great and I love Dr. Stephen.  I had an endoscopy procedure at the same location and cant say enough good things about the entire staff.  Highly Recommend!”
