I feel so much more confident about my treatment plan after talking with Dr. Binion. I always learn something new when I see him because he takes his time to explain things to me. It's really helpful because my PCP is not very familiar with my illness and all of the other problems it causes. I am in very good hands under Dr. Binion's care.

September 27, 2016

Dr. Binion is the most knowledgeable, caring and concerned physician I have ever had. I recommend him to anyone with my disease and fe he has saved my life several times. He is essential to my well-being.

I travel from Charleston WV to see Dr Binion. I have traveld to Cleveland Clinic for 20 plus years for my conditions. I Now only see Dr Binion for my condition. He is the BEST crohns Dr I have seen. I have seen many Drs at Cleveland Clinic and there is no comparison to the level of care and treatment that Dr Binion and his staff provides. None. I am now see other Dr's at UPMC thanks to Dr Binion. UPMC has an asset with Dr Binion. Also I would like to mention Patty that is in his staff. She is the nutritionists. Patty has been there for me when I have problems. She has gone above to help me also. GREAT TEAM.

With Dr. Binion, you can expect a log wait to get an appointment. You can also expect a decent wait at the office the day of your appointment. However, the wait is worth it. He spends a long time with you during your appointment and really listens to your medical history. He allows you to be an active agent in the decision of your treatment plan by taking your personal lifestyle and preference into consideration. He also really believes in doing the most with the least in regards to medications, and he's not afraid to think outside of the box. He's a fantastic physician, and I cannot recommend him enough.

the best care I could ask for

September 15, 2016

I have always received exemplary care in the past when visiting Dr. Benion's office. On this particular visit, I did not feel particularly listened to. not sure if t was partly from having a student start the conversation or what, but it seemed to be missed that I have always had a good head about my care and eating right. This visit, I got a lot of information that we've gone over in the past and there seemed to be little interest in working with me and the information from my nutrionist, which was frustrating.

September 08, 2016

Dr. Binion is outstanding. He took the time to followed up on results of a referral he had made at the last visit; explored progress and symptoms of my condition, including review of a CT disc from another hospital; and answered all my questions and addressed all concerns. He is very thorough, personable and has a sense of humor. I have the greatest of confidence in Dr. Binion.

September 06, 2016

Dr. Binion is the most thorough, caring and brilliant doctor I have ever visited. Not only does he listen to all of my health concerns, he puts all of them together and takes them all seriously when helping to come up with solutions to the problems that I have.

I appreciate the interest in entire health picture, not just specific IBD specialty
