Good: I have PBC, been seeing IU for 8? years, my primary doc's told me it was time to seek a second opinion, so I was referred here, and will be staying here. Dr. Scanga, I felt listened to me and willing to try options to help instead of just giving me more medications.

Dr. Scanga is one of the best, if not the best, doctor I have ever had. I was very ill when I came to him in 2011 and he was very calming then. He has been wonderful to my family and me. He explains everything and is a very caring person. I have recommended him to several people if they have a liver issue. I am so blessed to have him as my doctor.
