Dr. Prasad is an amazing doctor! She has been able to help my daughter "get her life back"! She is very knowledgeable and professional as well as caring and compassionate with her patients. My daughter has suffered for several years but is now finally getting some answers. I would highly recommend her to anyone that has any stomach issues.

She is very thorough and attentive to what you say as a patient. She takes detailed notes and is very personable. She helped to partially resolve an abdominal issue that has been occurring for over 9 months and $4,000 at another provider facility couldn’t.

I had the best experience thanks to Dr. Prasad. For a first time colonoscopy Dr.Prasad was the best, as were the entire staff, nurses and anesthesiologist. I highly recommend and suggest Dr.Prasad and her entire staff for any digestive health concerns anyone may have.

I’m the type of patient that looks at positives and negatives prior to choosing a physician. Dr. Prasad has consistently great reviews and I can add to that list. She is personable, smart, understanding and caring. She tells you everything she’s doing when performing a procedure and inquires about your comfort level. I highly recommend.

Dr. Prasad is an amazing and gracious person. Her "bedside manner" is stellar. I came to her because I had a positive Cologuard test. Because of my numerous health issues, I need a doctor who can look at me as a "whole" person, and not just as a gastroenterology patient. She looked back into my records, reviewed my history and came up with a plan tailored to fit my needs. She has placed me on a path which will include the opinions of several specialists, so that I can make an informed decision.

I was really pleased with the level of concern and care at first; but once my symptoms didn’t fit a traditional diagnosis, I felt that the office gave up on me. Very difficult to reach after hours, and I found the nurses in the call line rude and uncaring - except one kind nurse. If you can directly speak to Dr Prasad, she’s very caring and concerned - however; working through the nurse line is problematic and leaves much to be desired.
