Dr. Levesque is by far the best GI doctor I've ever seen. He's an IBD specialist so he's very knowledgeable about new treatments coming soon. He's got amazing bedside manner, and tries as best as he can to calm your anxieties about tests, procedures, medications, or illness itself.

I went through a really bad time this last year, and either he or his nurse called me a couple of times a week to check up on me and make sure I was doing better.

He really is an amazing IBD specialist for anyone in the area who needs a great GI.
