Dr. Thanjan is a very approachable guy with excellent credentials. It makes me sad to see someone denigrate him just because they had to wait He is always busy taking care of patients and sometimes handling emergencies.. He has an immense knowledge of GI issues and is always prepared and well-versed in my case He has taken excellent care of me and identified issues that passed over other doctors' knowledge base and improved my overall quality of life! I definitely recommend him.

Dr. Thanjan was very helpful and also very patient when I asked questions following a family member's endoscopy. He explained everything and was incredibly courteous; I have trust in his view of the problem because he took time to answer my follow-up questions. The entire staff at St. Mary's was also wonderful - from the helpful desk staff to the awesome recovery nurses.

I was seeing by Dr. Thanjan several months ago and was very disappointed. He spend less then 10 minutes with me in the office but charge me like he spend 45 minutes ( yes they value their time very much). When i complained to their office they told me that Dr Thanjan said that he spend a lots of time reviewing my files. I had to call so many times to find that out from his administrator. On the end he could not tell me why I have problems and suggested more tests. Very not professional :(
