Dr. Chiorian is the best doctor I have ever seen - and I've had some amazing providers at VM GI Clinic over the years. He doesn't condescend or dumb down the information, and I have the utmost confidence in his ability to help me manage my disease.

Dr, Chiorean has improved my condition extraordinarily.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
I tell everybody I meet, how much I love my GI doctor. Dr Chiorean always seems to remember what I'm doing with my life, and asks me how I am other than just my symptoms. when he wants me on a new medication he explains what it does and why he wants me on, which I appreciate because it gives me more reason to take it.

*Dr. Chiorean is excellent. I have had numerous doctors for GI in the past. He is by far the best ever, and cares about his patients. I have more confidence under his care than any other GI doc I've ever had -
