I appreciate that my visit was converted to a telephone visit rather than cancelling due to COVID-19.

May 4, 2020 4:01 PM

Dr. Bansal's nurse( I'm sorry I didn't remember her name.) went out of her way to help me get the medication for the best value through Good RX and changing pharmacies. this was greatly appreciated.

March 29, 2020 7:15 AM

He took time to go over all of my prior medical history relating to his specialty and answered all of my concerns and I never felt rushed.

March 16, 2020 2:38 PM

He's very patient and gave a very thorough exam. After talking with him, I feel so much better about my condition. His nurse was kind and helpful too. Overall, my visit was very pleasant. Thank you so much.

Excellent professional, personable & attentive doctor.

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bansal and his staff are excellent! My problem is with the on-line system - It took me several tries to get Dr. Bansal, and my other specialists to appear in MyChart! It was frustrating - and although I understand the system conversion, it arbitrarily eliminated dr.'s from my history I had not seen in a couple years.

August 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Great!

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

This appointment was for my first colonoscopy, Dr. Bansal and the entire nursing staff was wonderful, Dr. Bansal visited me prior to my procedure and helped me to relax and feel confident in him. The entire staff of nurses and others truly made this a positive experience.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Bansal for years. He has provided excellent health care.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience with the provider was good. However, scheduling the appointment was very difficult and I almost went outside Dryer. The phone lines were down at least twice and I was told several times I was unable to schedule so far out. Yet, when I finally was able to schedule, I had to wait three weeks past the week I wanted to initially schedule. Scheduling this appointment was an extremely frustrating experience.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bansal is awesome. He is very informative and caring.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

informative and relaxing

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

It was good

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

outstanding staff

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

With the transition period of My Chart to Aurora Advocate Chart, it took three weeks to finally be able to talk to someone to schedule a colonoscopy. I ended up contacting my regular provider to contact Dr. Bansals office for someone to call me. I was placed on hold 3 times for 20 minutes or longer and no one was able to help. it was NOT a good experience.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

suggested a different and much easier test than I thought I would have to get and he explained the reason he thought that test was best. I really liked Dr. Bansal

October 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bansal is very nice and he explained the procedure to me so I can understand the do & the don'ts of what to do before the procedure.

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bansal is a very good and caring doctor. I had Dr. X and am very pleased with both doctors.

October 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Bansal talked fast and gave me a lot of treatment options that sounded expensive.

September 24, 2018 7:00 PM

I had a very good experience with this visit.

September 22, 2018 7:00 PM

informative, courteous and helpful in the procedure that needed to be done.

September 18, 2018 7:00 PM

I waited longer than normal, but I was completely satisfied with my visit.

July 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I like Dr. Banal very much. He is friendly, kind & considerate. I would recommend him to friend or "foe".

July 7, 2018 7:00 PM

My PPO advised me to set up an appt. w/ Dr Bansal regarding a follow up colonoscopy. Dr Bansal and I discussed if I really needed to have one as I am 83 years old. All questions were answered professionally and the outcome was agreeable to both parties.

June 14, 2018 7:00 PM

This was my frist appointment with the doctor and all went well. We set a time for my next procedure.

May 24, 2018 7:00 PM

It was good, very explicit to indicate the procedure of the exam to do.

April 6, 2018 7:00 PM

I saw Dr. Bansal several years ago and so has my husband. I have recommended Dr. Bansal to others.

March 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Bansal a terrific GI doctor. Ability to diagnose and explain the best. Comes across as caring and is very competent and reassuring during procedures.

March 19, 2018 7:00 PM

HE WAS VERY NICE, AND HE EXPLAINED TO ME WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP FOR ME TO BE IN GOOD HEALTH.

March 18, 2018 7:00 PM

He was very professional and helpful he explained the procedure the way could understand.

February 28, 2018 6:00 PM

Waited 2 hours for colonoscopy, was taken back & several clinical staff ATTACKED me at once, putting on oxygen, etc. which could have been done one at a time and not all at once. Asked dr. questions when staff called with results, was give a call back, but questions were never answered & staff was very RUDE! Race & education has nothing to do with my health.

February 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Bansal was friendly and seems to really like his practice.

February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

I am very happy with Dr. Bansal.

February 4, 2018 6:00 PM

real good doctor. i have only seen him couple of times and he explains everything real well.

February 4, 2018 6:00 PM

Everything ok until I went a week later to get colonoscopy prep and pharmacy didn't have order. Turns out the office failed to resolve issue with order for past week or to notify me. So I drove 22 miles round trip for nothing and now will have to drive back in the snow again to get the prep. Not acceptable. I understand why/how computers detect interactions and allergies, but the buck still stops with the humans!

January 20, 2018 6:00 PM

It was good.

November 20, 2017 6:00 PM

Very personable, easy to talk to. Knows my medical issues and is on top of things
