you wait at least 90 minutes to 2: 45 minutes for every visit for her to talk to you for 5 minutes. I have never complained or left a doctor's office in my entire life. She makes excuses But I heard the nurse complaining about her triple booking patients. She is very knowledgeable though so if you don't mind waiting 2hrs a visit go to her

I will never recommend her to anyone. She was very short with me twice. The first time when I came back to reschedule my colonoscopy because I didn't have the copay the first time. The second time she was short with me after two tests and the last visit I forgot to get the blood test till that morning of my appointment. She snapped at me and didn't give me a diagnosis. I called the office to speak to a nurse and she got the phone and snapped at my again. No diagnosis no rescheduling, nothing.

I spent 5 minutes with her in her office and she charged me a $264.00 consultation fee. This was concerning preventative care. I was not there because I was sick. She rushed me through the visit, explained nothing to me, then passed me on to her scheduling department to set me up for a routine procedure. I couldn't build a relationship of trust with this doctor in such a short amount of time so I canceled.

Have had 2 appointments and each time waited over 1 1/2 hours past scheduled appointment time to be seen. No explanation from staff, no courtesy notice when checking in that Doc was running late. One young blonde receptionist is to busy on her personal call phone to answer your questions. If you have an appointment here, plan to spend several hours in uncomfortable chairs.

I was referred for regular colonoscopy screening. The initial office visit required a prolonged wait in the waiting room. Dr. Rahmaiah was friendly, engaging and to the point. After the visit and during the prep I had a concern and called her at 10pm. She was gracious and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I hated to call her but felt 100% better after. The Tavares surgical Center was clean and modern and the staff were all friendly and helpful. They followed up. Highly recommend.

Had an appointment to consult, first, it was all very positive, office staff is professional and efficient, scheduling surgeries and insurance approval was immediate and post op follow up was caring and compassionate. All my questions were answered and I would recommend this practice. I appreciate a female doctor and there is a male gastro colleague in the same office.
