When I told my GI in Oregon that I was moving to Seattle, he told me to look up Dr Richard Kozarek who, he said, was the best GI that he knew. When I got to Seattle and told my PCP here about my pancreatic cysts, he referred me to Dr. Kozarek. I have not been disappointed. He listens, he provides explanations that are easy to understand, and refers me to appropriate diagnostic resources. I have no problem with a 5-star rating.
