ALL of these awesome testimonials are absolutely true! Fabulous team of doctors. Dr. Gourdin ran further tests and assured me that my ongoing digestive issues and test results are mild abnormalities. This put me at ease since my sister had a cancerous GIST removed Jun 2018 at MUSC. Thank you, Charleston GI, Dr. Gourdin and Gail (his compassionate nurse) for ALL your help. Need ya’ll.

We moved to Delaware in 2015 after living in Mt. Pleasant, SC for 8 years. During that time my family were patients of Dr.Smith! The level of care and concern for our family cannot even begin to be matched here in Delaware. Dr. Smith is highly professional, considerate, kind and compassionate! We sure miss you Dr. smith!!!!

Dr. Irions has a sincere ability to make one comfortable and confident in both office visits and procedures. He exudes professionalism: Exquisite manner: Compassionate listener; Articulate communicator; Expert diagnostician; and Knowledgeable practitioner. Dr. Irions’ “bedside” manner is remarkable; he is approachable, warm, caring, accessible, interested, and interesting with a delightful joie de vivre! One leaves Dr. Irions with the sense of being his One and Only patient! A Gift!

I have had a very difficult time w/ doctor and office staff since I moved to SC. CGI is the BEST Doctor and staff I’ve encountered down here. I recommend you to everyone. I don’t give out Very Goods easily, but you earned it.

I had a colonoscopy at the Charleston GI West Ashley facility yesterday and wanted to comment on that exceptional experience of good care. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the facility, and the genuine kind and professional care from the staff. A sincere thank you to Dr. Eddie Irions, Dr. J. Richard Fiorillo, nurses Miranda and Alex, and the check-in staff. All remarkable people who made having this procedure a pleasant experience.


Omg!!! Just wanted to say that this was by far the best experience I’ve had with any doctors office. I had an Endoscopy on yesterday and it was not as bad as I was freaking out about. From entering the door until I was released to go home,the whole staff was above excellent and patient with me. I would recommend Charleston GI to everyone who is in need of their services. They go above and beyond the rest. And I was a self pay patient and got treated royally.


Our relocating to this area has brought about searching for new doctors and medical facilities. I recently had to have a procedure offered by this facility and I can honestly say the patient care and constant communication of this group has IMPRESSED myself and my husband. The staff members that we experienced: Dr. Irions; Melanie; Rachel, Dr Cayman; Stephanie, have the medical backgrounds and patient bedside manners ALL facilities should strive to meet for their patients. My husband, after having this same procedure at another medical center remarked, “I am going to check my insurance and see if this facility is listed and switch”.
Keep up the Good Work!!


Hello my name is Carl, and I am a patient of Dr. Corless since August of this year. I want to ‘Thank’ his entire staff for my treatment. I had a colonoscopy on October 15 and every associate of Charleston GI treated me with great care and kindness. After that procedure I called your office and spoke with Michelle who is Dr.Corless nurse and explained some of my symptoms and she was very concerned and said she would get back with me that business day, well it was 5:30pm that Monday afternoon and I said to myself- gosh I wont hear anything today- but my cell rang around 6:10pm that day and it was Michelle who had discussed with Dr. Corless who wanted me that very next day to have blood work n stool studies done, and she did not leave until all my orders were sent into the lab. That’s what I call up n beyond for your patient. Two days later as she promised me she stayed on top of this….

and we found out I had C-diff…..

now you see I was truly very ill and Dr. Corless started me on the correct medicine that day. During the past two weeks I had the pleasure of speaking with Kathy another nurse for Dr. Corless who always return my calls and answered my questions. Over the past two weeks both Michelle n Kathy have been excellent to me and I want them to know how appreciative and thankful I am for there kindness and concerned about my health. I met with Dr. Corless yesterday where he took his time to explain and discuss the findings of my colonoscopy. Thank you to the entire’ Team’ of Charleston GI!


Great experience, fast and discreet. It was as if I never had the procedure. Absolutely no discomfort and my nervousness left as soon as I walked into the office. Job well done Dr. Irions.

I had a first time colonoscopy with Dr. Corless, I must say that the whole experience was good. The check-in staff was pleasant and friendly. The nursing staff was just EXCELLENT (Amber, Sherlin, Lauren). Dr. Corless and Dr. Walters (anesthesiologist) was more than EXCELLENT. I must also mention Salima in the billing dept., she was very to provide the answers that were needed. Thank you again for a very pleasant and comforting experience.

My experience with Dr. Irions was one of the best I have ever had with a physician. He is knowledgeable, pleasant, and a true professional. The colonoscopy procedure was uneventful, and I did not experience any side effects. Upon returning for my follow-up visit, Dr. Irions patiently and thoroughly answered all of my questions regarding the colonoscopy test results. He took time to listen, I did not feel rushed, awesome bedside manner. My husband is transferring to Dr. Irions for his GI care.

I contracted Hep C as a nurse years ago. I couldn’t tolerate Interferon so I opted this year to try the new meds offered. Dr. Noble prescribed and watched over me while I was on these meds and they seemed to have cured me! My true guardian angel through this process was his assistant Alyson. She kept me informed about appts. and blood testing. Without her I probably would not have gotten my meds on time. She is a true treasure and I just want to thank her SO much for her dedication to her job and to her patients. Charleston GI you are lucky to have her on your staff.


I had a colonoscopy this morning and I want to thank Dr Gourdine and Dr Phillips for their attention and professionalism but I especially want to commend the nurses who did the prep work. They were fantastic. I know it was routine for them but I felt as if I was the only one there. Lastly thank you to the Lady that checked me in at 615am, sashes was awesome. It sounds weird but It felt like I was visiting with friends.


Both Dr. Noble and his (Fantastic!!!)assistant Allison Anderson are wonderful! I have been a patient with Charleston GI for 11 years now, since right after I turned 16. I can tell you that without a doubt they are the most caring and supportive team any patient with long term care needs (or short term) could possibly ask for. I am eternally grateful that they go out of their way to ensure quality care for every patient.

“I am a fairly new patient of Dr. Smith. (A year and a half) approximately.
I have found him and his to be courteous, kind and caring and competent.
I have not met a physician in years who displayed his level of professionalism and genuine warmth. I could not recommend Dr. Smith more highly”

Each time I have gone to Dr. Irions’ office ,I have been greeted quickly and pleasantly. Nurses have asked good questions and listened patiently. Dr Irions is a kind and competent doctor. He has listened to me quietly and attentively while I explained my problems. We have talked about diagnoses and medications together. I greatly appreciate how he has helped me and my husband each time. I appreciate his responsiveness to my concerns; we have suggested his name to many friends.

I first visited Dr. Irions after another “Doctor” gave me a fissure during a colonoscopy that cost me 6 months of pain and 20 lbs. Dr. Irions fixed me and I have been recommending my friends from Beaufort ever since (12 in all). Today I received my colonoscopy from Dr. Irions. I feel great. Professional, caring, and expertise are off the chart. Top-notch–my highest recommendation. Thank you Dr. Irions.


Hello!!! I just wanted to thank Dr. Smith and his wonderful staff for taking such great care of me yesterday!!! I couldn’t have asked for better care. Thank you again!!! I hope y’all have a great day!! 🙂


“I was really nervous when I went in for 2 procedures, let me just say the staff is wonderful! When you first get there , until the time you leave , I was treated very well.
