Hemorrhoid Reviews

Robert Z.

“I can’t believe that I am even admitting to this, but I went to see Dr. Nowain for hemorrhoids. I know that they are pretty common but it has still been an embarrassing topic for me. Before I ever had problems with hemorrhoids, I only thought that senior citizens got them. But, I was definitely proved wrong. After a few years of on and off constipation, plus a job where I sit down for most of the day, I was plagued with this annoying condition. I wasn’t sure if I should go to my general doctor or if I should see a specialist. After talking with my sister, who is in nursing school, she suggested that I see a gastroenterologist.

“So, I started to search online and came across Dr. Nowain. His website was really user friendly and helpful so I decided to call his office to see if they could help me. When I spoke with the receptionist she was very understanding and friendly. I was nervous to admit that I even had a problem with hemorrhoids but the receptionist assured me that there was nothing to be embarrassed about. I was so pleased with our conversation that I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Nowain.

“When I got to his office, on the day of my appointment, I was impressed with how professional everyone was. The entire staff was so nice and they seemed like they all genuinely cared about the patients. I didn’t even have to wait that long to see Dr. Nowain, which was really great, considering my level of anxiety was so high that day.

“Dr. Nowain was so incredibly patient and personable that he instantly put me at ease. He really does have the best bedside manner! Well I won’t get into the details of my exam but he did this new banding procedure that was almost like a rubber band. It was actually kind of cool, he showed me how the entire procedure would be done before hand, I even came home and told my sister about it! It did not hurt at all and the hemorrhoid just fell off after a few days just like he said it would.  Amazing to finally feel relief!

“Dr. Nowain told me that almost every adult deals with hemorrhoids at some time in their life which made me feel much better. I wanted to leave this review on yelp in case there are others out there embarrassed like I was. They should know there are options and nice doctors who can help you. I feel so much better now and I know that if I ever have any problems in the future, Dr. Nowain will be able to help me. Thanks Dr. Nowain, you’re awesome!”

I am submitting this on behalf of my father-in-law. . .

I suffer for many years from stomach problems and a few years ago I was diagnosed by Mayo Clinic with IBS. I get serious attacks every few years but unfortunately the doctors in New York claim that there is no cure and could not help me so every time I had to suffer until the symptoms got better or disappeared. Two weeks ago I came for a visit in LA and I got probably the worst attack ever with non-stop diarrhea, nausea, stomach cramps. I was in such bad shape that I decided to go to a hospital.  Then somebody recommended to me Doctor Ari Nowain.  Dr. Nowain gave me some medications and a special diet and in 2 days I was back to normal.

I was treated by many doctors but I think that doctor Nowain is the best I ever met. I think that if this kind of episode returns, I may fly from New York to Los Angeles in order to get this excellent and dedicated treatment that only Doctor Nowain can offer.

My experiences with Dr. Nowain have been nothing short of excellent.  I found Dr. Nowain via the Internet when I was searching for a doctor to treat some hemorrhoid symptoms I was having.  After my initial visit, I knew he was the right guy!  Very knowledgeable, asks excellent questions and very thorough in his explanation of treatment options.  I wasn’t happy about having to go through the hemorrhoid banding procedures, but he and his staff made it worth the anxiety and effort.

He also mentioned that I ought to consider a colonoscopy when I turn 50.  I would go to Dr. Nowain for sure.  As it turns out, my wife’s regular physician recommended a colonoscopy screening for her.  I suggested she meet with Dr. Nowain.  She was as impressed as I had been, and he performed the procedure on her without any complications whatsoever.

His staff is very friendly and quite helpful in all regards.  I would highly recommend Dr. Nowain to family and friends for any/all GI issues, and the hemorrhoid treatments as well.

It seems weird to say that you really like a doc that deals with your colon (your butt, to be truthful). But I will say that Dr. Nowain took a less than fun procedure and made it a breeze for me.  I knew I needed to get a colonoscopy.  For one thing, I am over 50.  Then, my older brother just had the test and they found 2 polyps.  And another reason is my grandmother died of stomach cancer many years ago.

So I decided to take a friend’s advice and see Dr. Nowain.  My friend works at a doctor’s office in the same building and said that she heard he was a very good GI. So I made the appt and was not looking forward to going!   Dr. Nowain has a nice office and a really nice nurse, but I kept thinking about that test…it sounds so yuck!  So when I met him, I was pretty surprised how really comfortable he made me feel and after talking to him honestly, it just didn’t seem to be as big of a deal.  He explained the importance of the test and how it could save your life if you catch bad things early.  I felt stupid focusing on the laxative part of it but I had heard that you had to drink gallons of a bad tasting drink. I mean I HATE laxatives. Disgusting! I asked Dr. Nowain if there was any way around that part.  But he told me that it wasn’t gallons of bad stuff and you can mix it with OJ and space it out when you drink it.  It wasn’t bad at all as it turned out– although I wouldn’t pack that stuff for a picnic or anything!

I had my colonoscopy a couple of weeks ago at a really nice surgery center the doctor uses…the La Peer Surgery Center.  A little scary, at first, cause I didn’t know where I would get the test done. But I was so glad I didn’t have to go to a hospital.  Everybody at the La Peer center was so nice and totally took down my stress level when I got there in the morning.  When it was time for the colonoscopy and I got my sleep cocktail, I was not aware of anything that was going on…just like Dr. Nowain had said.  I don’t think you want to know about my colon but I will say that I am fine.  I feel really good about doing that test and knowing that I can wait 8-10 years to do it again.  I must say that Dr. Nowain was able to take away all my concerns and make me feel comfortable about getting a colonoscopy and finding out that I was OK is a great feeling.  Crazy as it sounds, I am telling all my same-age friends to make sure they see Dr. Nowain for their colonoscopy.  He is a GREAT doctor.


There are very few doctors today who actually care for their patients the way Dr. Nowain does. I was so impressed with his sincerity and true desire to make me feel better again. He is knowledgeable, skilled, communicates well, and made me feel very well taken care of. I highly recommend him if you want a doctor who will care for you like he would his own family. Truly top notch in every way.
