After putting it off for years, my wife and children forced me to get a colonoscopy this week. I was nervous about getting it because I thought it was going to be painful but I was totally wrong. It was very easy and painless. The TOUGHEST part was drinking the required powder pre-procedure. Dr. I and his team were absolutely professional and did an awesome job at keeping me informed along the way. I highly recommend this team !!

Out of network bill is what you can expect after undergoing procedures with Dr. Indrakrishnan. I don't know if it's the doctor's fault, or the staff's, anyway. You risk losing a lot of money. About treatment – here, everything is not clear. Initially, the doctor made a pleasant impression, gave a lot of good advice. He persuaded me for ultrasound and a gastroscopy. Nevertheless, I was not satisfied. If the endoscopy showed results, and the doctor prescribed treatment, with the ultrasound is not so clear. The ultrasound found me with a fatty liver, but the doctor did not offer treatment. The doctor also found it difficult to prescribe me pills for pancreatitis. I turned to doctors in Russia for a second opinion, and they find, that I had gallstones, irritable bowels, and a complex of other problems. As a result, I was prescribed 7 different types of medications, and a 3-month course of treatment for fatty liver. In general, as I understand it, Dr. Indrakrishnan is an extremely narrow sp

Dr. Indrakrishnan great in his field but not in his office scheduling appointments. He schedules appointments and makes you wait for over an hour for a minute consultation. The procedures went well but again the wait times are scheduled hours before the procedures which only takes 20 minutes. This is unacceptable! Callie, my nurse was exceptional! Kudos to Callie.

She is an excellent doctor She was the second doctor to treat me. Comparing with (Indran Krishnan M.D / Indran B. Indrakrishnan , MD he is the worst) I could not be happier after the horrible experience with the first one. Super Expensive, just to read you the report $200, the first 13min consult $350

Horrible. I waited over an hour just for a "consultation" even though they were the ones that recommended I get a colonoscopy each year... Then, once in the back, I was treated with disrespect and even got yelled at by the doctor, all because I just wanted to make sure I didnt have to come back for another "consultation" before scheduling the procedure. I will not return to this place and I hope this doctor learns that he shouldn't take advantage of people like he does.

Dr. Krishnan is a horrible doctor with beyond terrible bedside manner. Do not believe these 5-star reviews; majority are fake. He’s extremely rude, barely listens to you, speaks over you and won’t hear you out, and overall rushes the appointment. He Schedules unnecessary Follow-up appointments and over-books his schedule, all because he’s greedy! Non procedural appointments: 1.5-2 hr wait time; procedural: 4-6 hours. I had a follow-up endoscopy and called the same morning to confirm before making the 40-minute drive. I get To the office, wait almost 2 hours all for him to take me to the back (so he can charge me for a visit) and tell me my insurance didn’t approve the medically necessary procedure. He lied to my face, yelled at my mother, and blamed the insurance. I called My insurance company immediately after I left And they said they never once spoke to him about the procedure. You’ve been warned! Don’t waste your money or time here. He doesn’t care about patients, only money.
