A Caring, Expert Los Angeles Gastroenterologist
Here is what one patient had to say about the importance of seeing a GI doctor who gives top priority to treating patients well: “My visit to Dr. Berookim’s was fantastic. His office was clean and classy. He actually listened to what I had to say and did his best to work through my issues. Even though my problem didn’t turn out to be as serious as initially thought, he still kept in touch just to make sure everything was good and to offer additional advice. I really appreciate that he went the extra mile for me.” – Laury W.
Dr. Berookim makes it his business to stay up to date with the best methods for patient care. “I’m excited about the use of the EsoPill for diagnosing Barrett’s esophagus.
