I was very pleased with Dr.Clark. I felt like he really listened, took time to answer any questions. It took awhile to get a appointment but it was worth the wait.

Dr. Clark was very kind. He explained what to expect and then met with me afterwards to explain results.

Dr Volak was so caring. He knew what was wrong and fixed it. I am able to eat again and not worry about it daily. I will always recommend Dr Volak to anyone having gastro issues.

Dr. Stanton is a very kind person and a wonderful physican who I have had the pleasure to call my dr. He helped me through a really hard time when I was previously told to go to Baylor and get on the transplant list. I wasn't ready for that and started looking for another opinion. My husband made some calls and we chose Dr. Stanton for that 2nd opinion. He has been my dr ever since without the transplant and I am doing really. That was a very good move on our part and I thank God for Dr. Stanton moving to Tulsa!
