Here's what Dr. Kawa's patients think
Dr Kawa was excellent
Dr Kawa was excellent. He showed much compassion and agonized over a problem I had in which it took several procedures to figure out. He gave me confidence that they would figure the problem out and after several attempts of different solutions was able to fix my issue in my stomach. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Kawa is amazing.
Dr. Kawa is amazing. His incredible knowledge gets translated into information I can understand, he spent time answering all my wife's questions (which were many) and made her - in itself a small miracle. He recognized a potentially serious issue and came to the hospital on a Saturday at 9pm to make sure it was communicated to everyone correctly.
Definitely will continue to be our "go to"
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kawa! His expertise, skill, knowledge, as well as the time he took to answer questions and explain details were above and beyond. I am grateful he is thorough and wants to rule out any possibilities. His concern and care potentially saved a loved one. Definitely will continue to be our "go to" for gastroenterology care and procedures.
