"Had my first procedure done today there . Been having upper abdominal pain and swelling , they told me they were gonna do an oral scope to check my gallbladder . The people were super nice and made everything very relaxing and did a great job explaining . But when I woke up from the scope they told me they did check my gallbladder or liver ? He went down to esophagus that meets my stomach . And I’m still having pain , still not sure if I will have to go back or not ."
"I did not have to wait long. The intern asked a series of questions to try to help find the possibilities and to determine a course of diagnostics and treatment. The were kind and courteous. No issues at all."
"Everyone was so courteous and friendly! Though I was nervous and anxious about the procedure, by the time I was about to be given medication to put me to sleep, I was very calm and relaxed. My prep nurse was a jewel! Tiffany, James, Valentina & Doctor Gibbs, took excellent care of me! Thank you all for an excellent experience at GastroArkansas."
"I really enjoyed the professional folks . They explained what was happening.They handle patients with care like family would and very nice. I would definitely tell friends and family go to this clinic if need a professional staff. Merry Christmas. Happy New Year!"
"All of the staff are friendly and caring from the front office to the back. They made everything so easy. I saw both APRN Crystal Brown and Dr. Craig Davis, and I would highly recommend both of them."
"Had a previous problem where I was coughing blood and they were going to see me quickly. After 3, days, the coughing stopped and they cancelled seeing me. The person I'm serinh there now is very serious and professional, but no friendlieness at all. Strictly business. I had a problem trying to reschedule an appt that was made for me, the person answering the phone spoke good English with a foreign accent but kept asking me to repeat everything that I said, sometimes twice. I got frustrated."
"They notified me that I could get in earlier than my scheduled appointment, which I did take advantage of. I had very little wait time and was seen by the NP in minimum time. She was very friendly and listened to my concerns."
"I had a great experience! Deidre worked hard at finding an appointment that worked best with my schedule! Crystal was very sweet and caring. Dr. Heath and his nurses were also great! Minimal wait, thorough, and friendly! A+"
"Everyone was very nice. They were prompt, very nice, listened to you and were concerned about things and were quick to find out what’s going on. I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks for all you do."
"They nurses and doctors I saw were very informative, helpful, understanding. They listened and offered their medical knowledge and advice. I went for one issue, but have more than 1... and they actually covered both and are following up on both. I was very comfortable. Usually after seeing a doctor. I am discouraged... but that wasn't the case!"
"They seem to be sincere of their job. Doesn't matter how often I call or how often I'm in they do what they can to help the client they have. Very nice and friendly even though I bust their balls they do what they can at no cost to help."
"After explaining to the nurse practitioner all my symptoms she stated that she thought it was my heart and not my stomach. Had several tests yesterday at Conway Regional and tests confirmed it actually is my stomach. Waiting on appointment with cardiology so that they will clear me for upper GI next."
"I highly recommend this place I saw Dr Heath who was fantastic as well as the nursing staff They made me feel super comfortable The only one who seems out of place there was my procedure receptionist She was unfriendly and just matter of fact Otherwise a 5 star facility"
"The minute you walk in the door you are met with a great staff. An important part of a doctor's appointment to me is me and them being punctual, I had a 1:00 p.m. Appointment and I was seeing someone at 1:00 p.m. Can't beat that for sure. Very professional people and still had a great time with the interview process, they answered all my questions."
"The staff is always amazing. You will leave every appointment knowing exactly what the process will be or what medications will be and what to expect. Any time I have a question it is always answered with in the same day"
"Wonderful place, great experiences, friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have been a patient for 9 years. They have always been there for me. I don't have to worry, someone will always call me back. Thank you!"
"Dr. Heath has a wonderful Bedside manner, He explains ur diagnosis in full detail. My husband doesn't like going to specialists, but Dr. Heath has a way of making you feel at ease! Thnks for being you. All our best Boggs family."
"I have been going to Dr. Douglas Stokes at Gastro Arkansas for over 20 year's now. He is a wonderful Dr. He's thro. Kind and caring as are the nurse's! I have stage 3 Crone's dis. And have been with them all these years! I wouldn't go anywhere else! Best Drs and nurse's ever! ‼️❤️ .."
"I saw Chrystal Brown APN she was very knowledgeable and listen to everything I had to say and all my complaints I will definitely suggest to my friends and family to see gastro Arkansas if they ever have issues!"
"My husband had an EGD and this is a great place. Dr Stokes is wonderful , he got my husband in quickly because he was suffering so much. All the staff were wonderful. Respectful, kind and professional. His test was great and went home quickly. Could not have asked for a better experience."
"Have had several appoints at the Conway Location over the years. The staff are very knowledgeable and caring. A friendly face to greet you is always a plus. The Doctor takes the time to listen and show empathy. Good folks"
"I do like Dr. Heath and Dr. Brown, but the office receptionists are not friendly or apt at their jobs. I have to call for my meds that were already supposed to be called unto to the pharmacy, when i leave office never a reschedule or asked about another appointment. I have to say the young receptionist i met at my last appointment was very sweet and professional."
"This was my first time seeing a GI Dr and I was very nervous. Dr Crystal Brown was very friendly, thorough, and put me at ease. She scheduled testing quickly, as well as the follow up call with result. I give a 10 out of 10!"
"I was very pleased with the ease of how the procedure went, and the staff is very professional and pleasant. If you need Gasto doctors this is a very pleasant group. Dr Heath was very informative, as is all the staff, they informed me of everything all the way through"
"Friendly employees. Clean office. No waiting. Was called back on time. Dr. Stokes is friendly and knowledgeable. He had good eye contact with me. He explained my upcoming procedure in terms I could plainly understand. I recommend this Conway clinic for anyone looking for an endoscopy clinic."
"It is a very nice quiet clean the nurses was really really nice I was called right away what I didn't understand she explain things that I didn't understand and I was in and out of there so quick ,haven't had my procedure done yet but I hope it goes just as wellas the 1st visit went thank you for making me feel comfortable"
"Dr. Brown was very personable and thorough. She recommended I get some blood work and a ct scan completed before a colonoscopy, as I had some recent issues with diverticulosis/diverticulitis. The blood work and scan turned out good, which gave me some comfort in knowing my abdominal area was healthier than I thought. I now have a scheduled colonoscopy. I would recommend her for any patient."
"Hey I thought that the staff was very very nice and kind with me crystal was very good at explaining what was going on and I look forward to seeing her more and get help with my problems ty Robby Fraser"
"Nurses can be rude sometimes. Dr Backstedt is great and makes up for the rude staff! Always takes plenty of time to answer any questions me or my husband have. I think he really cares for his patients and it shows! He has a lot of knowledge and takes the time to explain things to me so I understand...thanks!"
"I’m a retired RN. My GI doc retired and my research led me here. This young woman was on time, warm, professional, a good listener and intelligent. She expressed some concerns about one of my GI meds and explained it well and changed it. She was thorough in gathering my history. I felt confident in her assessment and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."
"I have been a patient of Dr. Heath for over 20 years. His patient and assuring manner is very reassuring, and I have always gotten first rate, professional service from all the staff. I recommend him highly."
"Dr Heath saved my life 23 years ago, when a colonoscopy he performed found cancer, I was 43 at the time. He removed it, and I have been cancer free ever since. I go back every 3 years for a scope, and he has removed polyps on about half of my visits. He has my highest regard as a doctor, and is a nice friendly person that you can talk to. I have never witnessed any of his staff being rude to anyone. They are kind and competent."
