Reviews

When I made my first appointment here, I was so scared that my symptoms would be dismissed, as can happen to women. My fears were unfounded. Dr. Verkhovsky listened to everything and never once made me feel like I wasn't being taken seriously. He is easy to talk to and has an excellent bedside manner. I know I was repeating myself sometimes, but he was always patient and I never felt rushed. Thanks to his efforts and care, I was not only able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with my family, I was able to cook it, too! That's something I wouldn't have been able to do for most of the past year. I would also like to mention all the rest of the staff, front office was friendly and helpful every time I went in. I regret that I didn't catch the name of the medical assistant who has helped me every appointment, she's fantastic. Knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. The nurses at the center next door were also very friendly and helpful, and quite patient. I highly recommend Dr. Verkhovsky and Arizona Digestive Health. I only wish I had made an appointment sooner instead of suffering so long on my own! If you need a doctor, don't let embarrassment or fear keep you away, it's not worth it!

Dr. Verkhowsky was extremely thorough and took ample time to understand my issues. He offered concrete ideas to add to my treatment as well as providing an understanding of how through my diet to lessen and eliminate my symptoms. He was easy to talk to and a great listener.
