Dr Medich saved my life last year with surgery to remove a colon tumor. This visit was a one year check up to address any issues I may have or questions on my health. Dr Medich quizzed me on exactly what I had done last year and why it was done. I also was diagnosed with Lynch Syndrome which affects more than just my colon. He made sure I understood the importance of the various screenings that I need to monitor my health. Our interaction was done with professionalism but also with genuine caring. The staff was also very caring and very knowledgeable. I am retired now but worked in the medical field my whole life. I know the good and bad in medical care and I feel this office is one of the best. Dr Medich is certainly an asset to your institution and I was very lucky to be referred to his care.

Dr. Medich explained my condition and surgery options in a clear and compassionate manner. He made me feel at ease during my examination.

I cannot tell you how wonderful Dr. Medich (and his staff) were to me. He had such a special way to make an uncomfortable situation that was wrought with anxiety much easier to handle. He had a fantastic ability to explain the situation to me, discuss options, and listened to my thoughts and feelings about the situation before rendering his proposed solution. He treated me respectfully and he and his staff maintained my privacy to the highest degree. Dr. Medich has such a fabulous bedside manner and that is invaluable, especially at the time of diagnosis for a patient. I am a health care professional as well, and I have already recommended Dr. Medich to many of my peers.
