“All the staff in Dr. Degala's office are always friendly and helpful. Dr. Degala is very thorough and takes time to listen to me. He also takes the time to explain what is going on with my diagnosis. He has been my Doctor for quite a few years and will continue to go to him. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great GI Doctor.”

I was very impressed with Dr. Degala. He didn't seem to be in a hurry. He listened to me, gave suggestions and suggestions on treatment. A couple of days later I had more questions and called the office. There was communication with the Dr. and I had an immediate answer. I feel that he is really interested in patients.”
