Dr. Thanjan was extremely professional. He answered all my questions before my test. Then, he thoroughly explained the results to my husband after the procedure. I feel confident discussing my concerns with him.

Would not even leave his office to consult with me, and sent William Warren in to talk over my questions condescendingly. Second opinions say his advice was incorrect and his invasive procedure recommendation was completely unnecessary.

His associates were treating me while I was in the hospital. Apparently he only goes to St. Mary's. About two weeks after being discharged I got a letter from Dr. Tanjan discharging me as a patient because he couldn't get in contact with me and I missed an appointment (while being hospitalized) I immediately called to speak to his nurse who wouldn't talk to me because I was no longer a patient and I left (5) Five messages for the office manager to call me back.

I would highly recommend Dr. Thanjan to anyone. I had to have procedures that was really scared to have done and Dr. Thanjan put my mind at ease. He spent quite a bit of time with me every time I went in and thanks to him I was able to successfully treat the issues that I had. He has a great bedside manner and is genuinely caring and concerned.

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 :(
