"My visit was very fast but at the same time the doctor took his time to hear me and took his notes. They give me the next appointment very quick and at the same day of the procedure they were very respectful and nice."
"Dr. Meziere has been my gastrointestinal doctor for 14 years. He treats me for Crohn's disease. I have always found him to be very knowledgeable about this disorder, and he will do everything possible to resolve my symptoms. Most important to me...he listens!"
"The front office staff was very helpful and friendly. Dr. Stokes was very professional, inquisitive and compassionate. Dr.Stokes took the time to explain his thoughts on my condition and how we were going to proceed. I felt very comfortable and confident in Dr.Stokes diagnosis and the plan to treat my particular condition."
"I had the absolute best experience. I had been sick with colitis for a week, so I was feeling hopeless by the time I went in. Matt Taylor was amazing. He explained everything thoroughly to me and eased my mind on my condition and recovery time. He made me feel comfortable and took his time, not rushing through the appointment."
"Everyone here is so kind, caring, and attentive! They always go above and beyond to do what is best for you. From the front desk to the back office; they are all truly amazing! I’m so glad to have found this office."
"I had been to so many different doctors, and no one would take the time to try to find out what was wrong with me. Then I found this place, they literally saved my life. Amanda is so attentive to everything you have going on. She got all of my test results asap, every time. This place was Heaven sent for me. All of the staff are very nice and actually care about helping people. I would recommend 10/10. Best place I have ever been, and will go to from now on. Within a week, they found gallstones that I had been suffering with for 6 months."
"Dr. Morrison and her staff were so kind during my entire experience at GastroAR. She made sure I had a clear understanding before leaving, and the nurses went above and beyond to keep their patients comfortable."
"Best Gastroloigist I’ve ever had and he seems to genuinely care about my health care. I have a liver disease and he makes sure I get all my blood and other test done on a regular basis without going through a lot of trouble. His staff and nurses are always friendly and willing to help in anyway."
"I have used Dr Nutt for many years and am always impressed with her and all of her staff. She always takes lots of time with me and explains everything. She is one of my favorite doctors and I don’t even like doctors! Everyone who works there is very friendly and helpful. I couldn’t ask for a better medical experience."
"Dr Tom Mezzire has been mine and my husband GI physician for 15 years. He has always been very professional with a kind and warm bedside manner, listens to us throughly explains procedures and findings and does not leave the exam room until all our questions are answered.Recenty my husband was told when he called to the office to make an appointment Dr Mezzire had retired and scheduled him with another doctor in the clinic. I was panicked! To me it’s equvilent to when a women finds a Gynecologist you are comfortable with trust and you hope they will take care of you for a long time! Dr Mezzire is the only GI physicain I have ever seen. I received a phone call the end of August informing me it was time for a 5 year follow up with Dr Mezzire. I mentioned I thought Dr Mezzire had retired. I was so relieved to learned he had not retired and was working two weeks a month! I had an appointment last week with Dr Mezzire and about cried when he walked in the exam room. I was so glad to see him! He is the best! I highly recommend Dr Mezzire for GI care!"
"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."
"I had an appointment with GastroArkansas. The young man I saw was so very nice. He answered all my questions and explained everything to me. I only wished that every doctors office had someone as nice as he was to me. Thank you."
"Dr. Meziere is the best. If you have a problem, he listens to you and makes sure to get all the data he needs to know what’s going on, so he can treat it if needed. He’s a nice guy, a real professional, and he knows gastroenterology. I trust him implicitly."
"Drove almost an hour to where Dr. Meziere’s office USED to be in NLR. After getting back in my car, I called to ask if he would still see me in LR. He told me to “come on.” By the time I got there I was 45 minutes late for my scheduled appointment. Thankfully they worked me on in. Dr. Meziere is a straight forward, ‘tell it like it is’ doctor, but with a caring approach and pleasant manner. He’s always been an A+ in my book!"
"Dr. Meziere is a great doctor. He has always given us plenty of time and answered all our questions and explained everything to us where we could understand it. My husband and I think the world of him."
"Dr. Meziere is one of the best doctors you will ever meet. He is kind, understanding, and attentive. My mom had multiple issues and he took the time to review her extensive records to insure he provided the best care. You will not regret choosing Dr. Meziere!"
"Dr. Meziere listens well. Talks to me about what tests he’s ordering and why. He also takes time to listen to my questions about why he is ordering a test if I don’t understand. I have been to him several times over the last 20 years. I have referred several friends to him."
"I have utilized Dr. Meziere for the last 26 years for my gastroenterologist in Little Rock, Arkansas. I trust him tremendously with my life. He is so talented as a physician and explains everything in such a calm manner. I feel so relaxed knowing he is performing either an EGD or colonoscopy on my body. In addition, his team are the best. Getting my IV in since I’m quiet a hard stick but they get it every time. The billing team and entire staff are all so professional to me and my husband, Robert. I feel privileged to have Dr. Tom Meziere as my physician for all these years. I panicked this year when I heard he’s going to retire. I don’t know what I’d do without him as my gastroenterologist. I love him as a personal friend and physician😍."

You won’t be disappointed!"
"I have found Dr. Meiziere to be a very informative and caring doctor. He takes time to explain about your care, step by step and also listen to you. He always asks if I have any questions. I think he is a great doctor and I have a lot of faith and trust in him."

She doesn't do anything that is not necessary that might lead to answers. The whole staff from the office staff to all the nurses are very compassionate and caring and patient with everyone. They adhere to privacy and confidentiality. I absolutely love the use and availability of the patient portal. It allows you to not waste valuable time, your's or theirs. I really appreciate Dr Morrison and all the staff at Gastro Arkansas!"
"Dr Meziere is very competent . He is a very caring doctor, and is interested in your health. He worked me in on a days notice, to check for stomach issues. A solid first choice for stomach and colon care! Great office staff"
"Great Doctor and just started going to him after my previous doctor retired. He listened to my issues and I believe he truly cares about his patients. He is helping me with issues that I have persistently had for a long time. Bless his heart for putting up with me! He wears crazy funny socks that his daughter buys him. I can’t wait for our next visit because he has a plan to help me with my issues and I felt really good about him and he cares and that makes all the difference in the world. Thank you Dr Stokes for putting up with this wild flower."
"I loved the ease of making my appointment and the clinic staff was great. I saw Matthew and he did my pre-test questioning and exam. He was easy going and informative. He gave me the pre-op instructions before my procedure and let me know what to expect. It was a great visit."
"I've been a patient of Dr Meizere's since I was 19 yrs old..now being 38 yrs. He's honest ,informative and caring. I have recommended him to many and will always. If he cant help he will always send to someone who can. He's the best !"
"I have been going to Gastro Arkansas for many years. Dr. Debra Morrison and her staff go to great lengths to provide the best service and comfort to their patients. I would highly recommend Gastro Arkansas."
"Dr. Kakati has been nothing shy of great. I haven’t had many issues since I’ve been seeing him. I feel like he genuinely listens and doesn’t rush the visit. He’s concerned about the patient’s life and doesn’t look at them as paycheck. I would highly recommend him."

"Dr. Kakati is a God send! He has helped me tremendously with my GI issues. He has a wonderful bedside manner and takes plenty of time with his patients. You can tell that he honestly cares about his patients and wants what is best for them. 100% would recommend him to anyone."
"Dr Mezerie is very kind and thorough. He has a good bed side manner. He got me scheduled immediately with his partner Dr because he was out of town the next two weeks. He was making sure we got on top of the issue quickly so it would get resolved. Everyone from the office staff and nurses were very genuine and informative."
"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."
"I have been seeing Dr. Debra Morrison for almost 20 years now and I can't say enough about how absolutely wonderful it is to have Dr. Morrison as my gastroenterologist. And because of my particular medical situation I must visit a gastroenterologist every 6 months, which means a LOT of visits! I wouldn't even consider going to another gastroenterologist or another gastro clinic other than GastroArkansas. In fact, when any of my friends or anyone in my family require a gastroenterologist, I have consistently recommended, with hesitation or reservation, Dr. Debra Morrison and the wonderful staff at GastroArkansas."
"Dr. Robertson was very thorough explaining what he thought was going on and then explained what he was going to do during exam. Afterward he was very thorough in telling me the plan and how we would treat. We all know this type of visit can be nerve wracking and he made me feel at ease and was so professional. Then when my labs came back abnormal he was very prompt on getting g more labs drawn and scheduled for an Ultrasound. I give him a 10/10!"
