in Spring, TX |
Very good Doc went over everything with me and my family . Great experience. Definitely recommend.
Houston, TX |
Watch out for poor communication line, the staffs never answer the phone and take too long to get the return call when you leave a message. Dr. Pothuri did endoscopy for my father while he was in the hosp for internal bleeding, dr Pothuri said he couldn't find anything, everything was normal. Within 7 months, my father came back for a check up with another endoscopy, this tine he said my father has gastric cancer. A BIG question: "how did he find nothing to something in a short time?"

Awesome experience. Attentive and caring.

I left another doc b/c of a medical file muxup. These ladies were more than helpful getting my records and an appointment. I watched them protect my HIPPA info while in the office. They are professionals and courteous. Dr. Pothuri has a great manner and is efficient at gathering information from a new patient and didn't order unnecessary procedures like my previous Gastro. Hope to have a lifelong relationship!
Dr Pothuri is a doctor you can trust. Answers all my questions and concerns

I met Dr. Pothuri, a year and half ago, he has been with me thru some frightening times, and now, thru better times. He is informed, patient, and kind. He not only treats me, he always talks to my family after my procedures. I will always recommend Dr. Pothuri to anyone needing a Gastroenterology specialist. Charlotte

I have been a patient of Dr. Pothuri for several years. I find him to be a thorough and engaged professional who is genuinely interested in your health. He wants to be sure you have all the knowledge you need to manage you health concerns. He listens when you speak and focuses his full attention on your status and concerns.

I had a very good experience using Dr. Pothurii for my colonoscopy. I would recommend him.
Houston, TX |
I had an emergency last year in April and had to be hospitalized for 4 days with a ruptured colon (which miraculously? self-sealed) and Dr Pothuri was assigned to me by the ER Dr. I was very lucky to have met Dr Pothuri, since in the course of the next few months we worked together to get my diverticulitis under control. 12 months later, it is completely under control with zero episodes in the last few months, and I feel great! I really appreciate all that Dr Pothuri has done for me!
in Cypress, TX |
The Doctor is very friendly and has taken good care of me.
in houston, tx |
The staff is unprofessional and can't seem to answer simple questions. Or are told not to. In addition to that the office doesn't even open until noon, so there is no one available until then. I find this ridiculous. If a patient has a question or problem the entire staff acts very strange and I'm left with the impression that no one there really cares. I think it's all a money game. The doctor is clueless or acts like it. He just wants you to return many times so he can make more money.
Houston, TX |
Staff is incompetent of doing their job. Front desk is rude and unprofessional!
in Southlake, TX |
Missed diagnosed my wife. Turns out she had stage III colon cancer. He said bleeding was from hemorrhoids. Was found a few months later by another physician. She died 3 years later. Don't go to this doctor.
in Houston, TX |
Will not return - not patient friendly, did not find problem even after upper/lower scopes, but found on accident by another physician...
