“Dr. Qumseya joined the Archbold Gastroenterology Group in August 2014. Since that time I have worked with him in our office and have also accompanied him in procedures. Dr. Qumseya expects and delivers the best care for each of our patients and cares for them as if they were his family. Our patients are a priority to him. We, our community and Archbold, are very fortunate to have Dr. Qumseya as part of our medical staff. We do not have another provider locally with his ability to perform complex procedures required for the diagnosis and treatment of complex gastroenterology issues. I have seen firsthand the difference having him in our community has made. I consider it a privilege to work with him and appreciate the level of care he demonstrates to our patients daily.”

—Archbold Employee

He’s a wonderful doctor!”
