"Dr. Matt Taylor has been very kind and caring and has done his best to help me to resolve my problem with any ongoing case of diarrhea. Currently we are trying some new medication to see if it will stop it and it seems to be working. I am very grateful. I do need to let Dr. Matt know that stopping one of the Nexium capsules and only taking one instead of two and trying to use the Tums in its place at night is not working for me. I am having a great deal of discomfort and sleeplessness at night due to it. They diarrhea has stopped. I feel that I needed to go back on my Nexium two capsules a day. I wanted to tell you first."

"Dr. Tom Meziere, is one of the best doctors in the world. He is very professional, honest, kind and he listen to every word you say, he don't rush you to stop talking and he comment and give you answer to all your concerns. And you can tell he's not a money making Dr. He is generally concern about his patients health, that's really hard to find in a doctor. If I could find a PCP like him, I would already be living in heaven. Thumbs up to his staff and him. I really do love Dr. Meziere he is the best."

He wasn't arrogant and over talked me, he was concerned about solving the situation.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience of great professionalism from Dr Robertson and his staff."

"I was diagnosed with CD about 3 years ago by UAMS. I stayed with UAMS for awhile but eventually sought a second opinion. I'm so glad I found Dr. Nutt at Arkansas Gastro. She has been so helpful in making sure that my disease doesn't get the best of me. She listens carefully and has great bedside manner! I'm so glad I can go to the gastro without dreading my appointment. :)"

"I first met Dr Johnson around April 2018. I had been a previous IV user and had contracted Hepatitis C. I had been to several doctors just trying to be treated because at 24 years old I found out not only did I have this terminal illness it had enough time to progress to the stage of border line cirrhotic and I stayed sick, exhausted, and helpless. From the first time he sat and just talked to me about everything he genuinely cared enough to go above and beyond for my treatment because insurance denied my treatment. I literally started losing hope but Everytime I saw Dr Johnson he lifted my spirits by assuring me we would get this treatment and I'd be cured no matter what it took. Here I am 25 years old on January 28th 2019 cured, happy, and healthy and for that, I will NEVER forget how a truly compassionate Dr and his staff saved my life! RN. Kristen Carroll and Dr. Bruce Johnson thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
