Dr. Bajaj, was outstanding with my routine colonoscopy procedure. He listened and explained to me what to expect and he explained to me in Laymans term what he found. I would highly recommend him for any kind of Gastro procedure you may need.

Upon meeting with him I was very comfortable. He has a very kind bedside manner and listens to you speak. I have another appointment with him and I feel very optimistic that he will get to the root issue.

Dr. Bajaj is a very skilled professional. He has a charisma about himself. He's thorough, he discusses your condition, answers your questions and calms your concerns. He's a very good physician. He can be a little dismissive at times, but if you bring it to his attention he corrects it and offers an apology. I've had him as my gastroenterologist for the last 20+ years.

Thanks for going that extra mile to get to the bottom of my medical situation (Achalasia). You gave me confident that I will have quality medical care when I need it. For over 6 years I had suffered with digestive problems & chronic coughing with no relief. I had seen over 9 physicians during this time period. You saved my life. Thank God for you.

Dr. Bajaj was very friendly and courteous upon meeting me. He has a great bedside manner and a great sense of humor. I was very apprehensive about a procedure that will be scheduled soon, but Dr. Bajaj explained everything I needed to know and made me feel at ease. His staff at the front desk are very friendly and were very helpful as well.

My experience with Dr Bajaj was fine. My issue is with his staff, in particular, Monica. I was scheduled for tests on a Friday and received a call 4 days prior asking for a payment, before the tests were performed. The norm is to bill the insurance first then the patient if necessary. The fact I was called the week of I feel is ridiculous and they do not return phone calls until you finally leave a message to cancel.
