Dr. Irakam took his time to get a detailed history and made me feel very comfortable. He throughly explained his thoughts on the situation and provided adequate suggestions/treatments. Dr. Irakam's staff is very professional and don't tryto rush things to get to the next patient, which is a rarity these days. I would highly recommend Dr. Irakam to anyone looking for the utmost knowledgable and professional GI.

I have seen Dr. Irakam a few times in the past few years. I never have to wait long to see the Dr. and he really takes the time to listen to your concerns and does a great job of educatinghis patients. He has a good bedside manner and I would highly recommend this dr for any gastro issues. I have also referred several people to Dr. Irakam who all share this feeling.
