Dr. Li was knowledgeable and kind, but I have to give a shout-out to the Nurse Practitioner or MD, who saw me prior to Dr. Li. She exceeded my expectations. She made me feel comfortable the entire time, and genuinely seemedto care about finding my diagnosis. She seemed like an old friend. All in all, very good experience.

FYI Dr. Li's office has about 10 doctors. You are very likely to see someone else rather than Dr. Li himself.

Dr. Li has a very busy practice, but his office staff is efficient and pleasant. I knew I would have to wait, so I was prepared with a book and it didn't bother me. He is pleasant. He squeezed my husbandin for a colonoscopy in 2 days which was great. I will turn to him again in a few years when I am due for another check up.

Office staff very helpful and professional. Running mostly on schedule. I didn't wait a lot of time in the waiting room before being seen. Dr Li was very professional, took the time to explain his prognosis, outlined a diagnostic plan, andanswered my questions. He has a great demeanor, and good communication. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Jianjun Li was nice enough, but it kind of seemed like he wasn't really listening very closely to my problems, and it kind of seemed like everyone in his office was being signed up for colonoscopies. I did end upswitching to another doctor who takes better care of me. Also, the office is cash only, which is pretty annoying.

I had to find a specialist at the last minute. Was thrilled he has Saturday hours. Waiting room full but kept moving. He apologized and so did his friendly staff for running overtime. He had to do a procedure that tooklonger than normal. I felt comfortable with him and he was thorough. He will be doing two procedures on me.

Dr. Li was fantastic. Dr. Li just met me for the first time and it was for a last-minute prescription I needed while out of town, and yet he was obviously feeling empathy and wishing he could do more to help- and he was encouraging too! A positive guy. The waiting room could be improved and the front desk staff weren't super friendly, but they were efficient.

He was the ONLY GI I saw in 4 years willing to order a CT scan. And the scan showed something. He pinpointed ONE problem and discussed the method of treatment. His office staff made it easy to get a copyof my report. Very busy office. On the Other hand..he missed a major infection going on by NOT ordering a culture analysis . I had to see a second GI to be tested and I tested positive.

I had a good visit with Dr. Li. He had a really great bedside manner and he was really nice. I was brought in shortly after I signed in. He was very quick in diagnosing what I had. I was very amazed! I will be coming back here for sure!

I saw Dr. Tin at the clinic and he was one of the best physician I have ever seen. I was very impressed at how he explained every little thing as to why I might be facing a certain problem, thephysiology behind it and what treatment options are available. I would highly recommend Dr. Tin to anyone who is looking to get complete attention from their doctors, so they can make a better decision about their health!!
