I have to admit, i was nervous about going under for my colonoscopy. The two day cleanse was less than desirable but required. Upon arrival, i was very nervous. The nurse (name escapes, Hungarian decent...) was very calming. I was out before i knew it. The procedure went quick and painless. Dr Ohri is a stud and great at what he does. Overall, excellent experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ohri for several years now, and I honestly feel this was a great move. He and his team have made such a positive impact on my life. I started seeing him due to severe heart burn that I had suffered with for years. After working with different meds to get the heartburn under control, I was convinced to do a tif stitch procedure to have the heartburn go away for good. I was a patient that also suffered from barrett’s Esophagus, so it was extremely important to reduce the acid levels. I did this procedure in 2016, and I honestly have not had heartburn since. It was the best thing I could have done. Dr. Ohri is professional, thorough and excellent at his job! 5 stars for sure for this team!

I suffered from severe acid reflux for over 10 years. Not being able to handle the pain and discomfort, I was referred to a GI specialist in Res - Dr. Ohri. I had heard wonderful things about him. I needed relief and was assured that Dr. Ohri was the best in his field. The Dr. performed various test to see what was the problem and was extremely patient with me, I am grateful. When Dr. Ohri was able to finally pinpoint my condition, he recommended the Esophageal TIF surgery in addition to having my Hiatal Hernia repaired. The recovery time was immediate and I felt wonderful instantly. I did not suffer pain and was able to resume my regular activities with the Dr's instructions of course. It has been 3 month since my surgery. I no longer suffer from acid reflux and that's a great thing since I enjoy eating many different foods and being restricted was hard. In addition, I was able to lose 30 pounds and wear smaller clothes. That would make anyone feel great. If you know anyone suffering from similar symptoms, I recommend making an appointment to see Dr. Arun Ohri MD. He is the best in his field and amazing, kind human being. He will have you feeling great again. I want to thank Dr. Ohri and his staff for all they have done. Their support and professionalism is uncanny. Zoraida Moreno

Dr. Ohri has been my gastroenterologist for many years. I recently had an esophageal TIF procedure. Dr. Ohri gave an excellent explanation of why he was doing this procedure and what it would accomplish. This explanation helped with any fears and anxiety I would have about the surgery. His expertise and compassion that he shows is second to none. I was also extremely satisfied with the help and care I received from GI Solutions of Chicago.

Four years ago, just before Holy Week, I was rushed to the Resurrection ER nearly dead from what turned out to be a fast-bleeding humongous duodenal ulcer. Under the direction of dear Dr. Ohri, the entire ER staff s;surrounded me and began treatment. Dr. Ohri diagnosed my condition correctly from the beginning, and after badly-needed IVs and a pint of blood, plus termination of coumadin meds, I was on my way to recovery. Subsequent 2 more pints of blood plus emergency endoscopies, I was fully recovered. Dr. Ohri has a reassuring manner and wonderful skills and knowledge of GI conditions and treatments. Even his sense of humor is healing and appreciated by the patient. Dr. Ohri is a true friend in the ER and procedure room, and friendly as well. Subsequent endoscopy a year after his treatment showed complete healing of the ulcer. I recommend anyone and everyone with a GI disorder to his care. His humble dependence upon the Almighty One is so great as well.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ohri since 1986. He was the gastroenterologist on call when I was a patient at Res. He was the only doctor who said I could keep my colon inside of me. If it wasn't for him helping me through these years who knows what would have happened. He is patient, professional, knowledgeable and has a caring manner. He listens, no matter how many questions I have had he answers all of them. I have referred several friends to him and everyone has nothing but high praise for his ability as a doctor. My mom's doctor misdiagnosed her gall bladder issue and just kept giving her Vicodin for the pain. I had her see Dr. Ohri, after 5 minutes he said it was her gall bladder and in 2 days she had the surgery. If it wasn't for his outstanding diagnostic skills she would not be here today. I cannot say enough about how outstanding a doctor he is as well as the entire staff at GI Solutions of IL. NSM

Dr. Ohri figures out the cause of my stomach problems and got the appropriate treatment going. To this day my stomach issues are farther and fewer between. I am so thankful to have Dr. Ohri as part of my care team.

You probably saved my life and I just wanted to say thanks!

I'm sure you don't remember, but around 2001 I was brought into the emergency room after loosing conciseness on a flight into O'Hare. I had a bleeding ulcer caused by NSAID. I had one hell of a physical when I was in the hospital and you took great care of me. However, that wasn't the real problem. My liver panel AST/ALT was high and you said - "you've had your last drink." And I did! I researched out the best liver centers in the world and ended up at Northwestern. I had cirrhosis , and the protocol calls for a CT every year because of a 3-4% of those with cirrhosis develop cancer HCC.

Fast forward to 2008. Northwestern found a small lesion on my liver, and over the years it grew. Finally it was large enough to biopsy. On the third biopsy, in 2009, it was determined it was HCC and I was placed on the liver transplant list. 18 Months later I had a cadaver liver. I was transplanted on March 1, 2011, 5 years ago, and I wanted to reach out to you so you could hear the rest of the story. 102 days after my transplant the FAA gave me my license back. 90 Days after transplant I took my yearly 30 day vacation in Canada. I was healthy both before and after the transplant

I have been very active in the transplant community ever since. I Chair the external board for Transplant Medicine at Northwestern. I do a great deal of public speaking, mentor patients, and currently chairing the efforts on our $10 Mil Endowment for Transplant medicine research at Northwestern. I also work with patients helping them find living donors for liver and kidney. (There is no liver or kidney shortage, it's an issue of allocation, but I digress) I am very good at what I do. I guess what I'm saying is, there is a reason for everything.

So there is a very happy ending and I just wanted to share it with you. By luck, you were on duty the night I arrived at the ER. The nurses all told me how lucky I was to have you as a doctor.

Keep in mind I am available for you or your patients if transplant is a discussion item. I know how to navigate the system in both the USA and Canada. I personally know the heads of most of the tier one centers and I know the the transplant MELDS at the various centers. This is what I do and I make it happen. And there is NO reason why someone has to die waiting for a liver or Kidney.!!

I blogged my entire experience. It is here: https://flyme33.wordpress.com . But it all started with you on a rainy evening.

For many years I lived on antacids for heartburn, suffered constant discomfort and bloating. I am now pain-free, thanks to the esophageal TIF procedure performed by Dr. Ohri.    - Margaret Dyson
