I highly recommend them.hy N. ★★★★★ Very goodAntoinette S. ★★★★★ I am thoroughly impressed by my doctor Dr. Julian Lucas and the staff that were so attentive to making sure my needs are met.Denise D. ★★★★★ Wait time was short. And everyone I interacted with was pleasant and friendly.Selame S. ★★★★★ I’m a referral coordinator for local practice here in Lansing. As someone that refers patients to Capitol Colorectal daily, I can honestly say that this practice delivers excellent patient care and even better customer service. In the case of urgent/ASAP referrals, the front office staff is extremely efficient and accommodating for our patients. I have to eulogize Aly N in particular...for those urgent referrals, she calls me as soon as our patients are scheduled (or she’ll send an appointment notice for routine referrals), so that our providers are well informed throughout the process. Regardless If they are non par with the patient’s insurance, Aly has not only notified me, but she has given me a list of CRS doctors (in Michigan) that participate with that patient’s insurance just to be sure that patient is ultimately taken care of. In addition to her meticulousness, Aly is positive and quite marvelous to work with!Gray D. ★★★★★ Couldn't ask for more friendly people to work withBrian L. ★★★★★ The nurses were awesome.

Thanks.Fred EngelgauBrandon H. ★★★★★ John Walling Jr. was professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with his service. If having a colonoscopy done I would highly recommend him and his staff at the Lansing Surgical Center. Thanks John!Liz H. ★★★★★ Everyone was polite and professional but more importantly everyone was kind. They made polite conversation to take my mind off the procedure. They were even extremely understanding about me being a few minutes late.This is a huge contrast to the doctor's office who ordered the test. I tried desperately to call them several times the day of my procedure to confirm the location for my colonoscopy. I could not get an answer as the phone system just kept trying to send me through their website. Imagine my surprise when I showed up at the office and there were three receptionists sitting there. First I apologized because I could hardly stand up due to the preparation for the procedure (no food and very little sleep and lots of vomiting for 36 hours). I asked where I needed to go. One of the young women said "the surgery center right down the road". I said "could you please write down the address." She ignored me and said "Lansing Surgery Center". I asked again so she finally wrote it down. Then I asked if she could please call them and tell them I would be a few minutes late. She said "no". Then the woman sitting behind her said "if you're late they won't even see you". Luckily I went and Lansing Surgery Center showed me that medical professionals can indeed be kind and understanding and believe in outstanding customer service.Julie T. ★★★★★ Dr. Coffey and his staff, in my experience, are the best in the business of Colorectal Surgery. I would not hesitate to share what I've been through with anyone who required these specific surgical procedures.Ana E. ★★★★★ The office staff is probably the nicest I’ve encountered in the medical industry. Alli went above and beyond helping me with my paperwork and was so genuinely kind and concerned with my well-being. Dr Julien was very professional and had great bed side manners.Carrie H. ★★★★★ I had an EGD and colonoscopy earlier this morning, and I received excellent care from all the staff at the Lansing Surgery Center. My amazing nurse Joey got my IV on the first try, Dr. Jones was fantastic and addressed all my questions with grace and patience, and the nurse anesthetist gave me the best nap I've had in a while with absolutely no side effects from the anesthesia (I usually get extremely nauseous). Seriously, the prep was the worst part. Everything after that was easy peasy. If you have the option to have a procedure performed here, then I would highly recommend it. We were in and out in three hours!Kathy D. ★★★★★ Staff at reception/check was friendly. The Medical Assistant was professional. Dr. Ross provided technical information in an understandable way. He is professional, yet personable & empathetic.Phillip S. ★★★★★ I had a short wait-time. Everyone was very helpful and kind. My questions were answered clearly and professionally. I got my colonoscopy scheduled with minimum wait.susan M. ★★★★★ From reception on, everyone was smiling and professional, but also very personal, making a scary visit very relaxing!Dr. Coffey came to introduce himself, and was very reassuring. The nursing staff was very kind and friendly!I felt cared for the entire time!Thank you Dr Beth for setting me straight on BP pills 💊 😀Special thanks to Dr Yousef for your kindness 😊Would highly recommend 🏆Daralee G. ★★★★★ I trust Johnathan with my life literally. I have been with this group for over 25 years Chrones IBS etc. A few months back hospitalized for 13 days after a very long remission. Every day one of the GI drs were there to see me.They continued daily to assess and answer all my concerns.I will continue to see Jonathan as needed as he is by far one of the most compassionate educated of any GI I've worked with on remaining healthy 😀Tracy M. ★★★★★ so far i like him a lot . takes things seriously and cares. he doesn’t mess around when he thinks something is wrong unlike the many many Dr’s i have seen in the past .. 10 stars!Cindy H. ★★★★★ This was my first experience having a colonoscopy at Lansing Surgery Center. The staff made me feel safe and secure in putting my life in their hands. They followed every procedure for the Covid-19 and explained carefully my procedure and home instructions. I loved the genuine smiles and how comfortable i felt as they walked me to the car to meet my husband. Thank you!Danielle D. ★★★★★ He is an amazing Doctor and is very caring. He listens and is genuine.Meagan M. ★★★★★ I was having a panic attack before my procedure and every single person that worked there was so kind and understanding. They got me right in. And they even gave me a thank you card signed by all the staff with my discharge papers. Highly recommend. Everyone here is amazing and thorough.js_loader
