Dr. Chemmanur quite literally saved my life. At 38 years old, I was not a likely candidate for a colonoscopy even given my symptoms. Dr. Chemmanur carefully assessed my situation, made the recommendation and I agreed to the procedure. During the colonoscopy, she discovered and removed an "enormous" pre-cancerous polyp. I went from having a 100% chance of colon cancer to a 0% chance in one 30 minute procedure. Dr. Chemmanur is professional, competent, kind and easily worth your consideration for a Gastroenterologist .

She was great. Took a detailed history before my colonoscopy went over all my medications while the nurses and anesthesia were doing their thing . I felt as though the whole process ran so efficiently. From booking my appointment to picking up my prep and receiving all the information I needed to have a great experience.By the way this wasn’t my first experience with this procedure.But was my first time with Dr.Chemmanur M.Kaufman, Wayland,Ma

Always a two plus hour wait in the office, canceled a scheduled appointment, showed up to the new one and told me I wasn’t scheduled at all. Office staff unfriendly and unwelcoming. She has told me that “ you are a bad patient. And I have to spend my time with other patients your not really sick.” Would not recommend her. Does not care about patients

Dr. Chemmanur. I am frustrated and angry about your cancelation of my prescheduled 9/6/18 endoscopy/colonoscopy. I received initial emails of confirmation & prep instructions. Including the statement of $250 fee if I, the patient, do not comply with appointment or prep! I DID NOT receive any voice message or email from your office on change of appointment, accordingly I appeared at scheduled 10:30 arrival 9/6/18. Your patient service shows unacceptable disregard for patient, me. LPVintinner

Poor communication. Lack of diagnosis. 2+ hour wait. Called me “Honey” and “Baby”, which I find very disrespectful considering the significant age difference. Spent very little time with me and provided no opportunity to ask questions. I strongly recommend you do not use this doctor

I've never had less than a 2 hour wait at her office either, which is beyond ridiculous, especially when she only spends 5 minutes with her patients. I have had about 8 visits, so the wait time is definitely not uncommon. The office staff is unable or unwilling to communicate with your other doctors to share patient information. It's like pulling teeth to get test results from Dr. Chemmanur to your primary doctor. I found a new GI specialist.

Very nice doctor with good bedside manner. However, she is forgetful and does not keep her word. And....takes personal cell phone calls during patient visits. The office is poorly managed and not a very sterile environment. Colossal disappointment.
