After seeing multiple doctors and not getting better I was finally able to see Dr Gyawali. He immediately knew what was wrong. After suffering for 9 months with severe diarrhea constantly with stomach pain with in 2 weeks I was better than I had ever been. Dr Gyawali’s diagnose and treatment plan made it possible for me to go back to living a normal life and saved my job.

I waited eight months months to see him. Over the course of two and a half years my condition improved and I have as close to a normal lifestyle as possible. Yes, I agree he is very busy but I always received a call back. He listened at my appointments and when a medication didn’t work for me, he prescribed something else. I recommend him without reservation. He changed my life for the better.

Waited over a year to see him for a five minute meeting where he read my chart to me (as if I didn't know what was on it), then misdiagnosed my condition. I was under the impression that Dr. Gyawali is the best GI specialist in the country, but I now realize that was a joke.

I would not refer anyone to this doctor. Dr. Gyawali is condescending and ill informed. He dismissed my GI symptoms as IBS when in fact I had Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome. He is arrogant and incompetent. He prescribed strong medications that did not work and caused terrible side effects. He was dismissive and cold. I would never refer anyone to him.

Not too long ego I was referred to this Dr to study my condition (best doctors). Never seen me or done any studys,only base in a phone call and couple test done by other doctors. Everything he say is wrong about my condition . I don't recomend this doctor to not one. I have been with real good Dr's, that really knows my condition. I don't even use pain killer .,thus doctor says my condition is due to taking opium ,I don't use drugs ,not even pills.

Waited 9 months for my first visit. Doctor was condescending and did not listen. Told me my constant nausea and daily vomiting "wasn't that bad". Left 2 messages for the nurse about the medication he prescribed costing $500 out-of-pocket, and that I wanted another option. Never heard back from them. Both appts I had were different on their schedule than on the card they gave me, and I was sent away. No apologies for their error or for wasting my time. Awful. Do not go.

most incompetent unprofessional excuse for a medical doctor I've ever seen. Botched his instructions because he's incompetent, refused to perform the procedure because I hadn't done something his didn't tell me I needed to do.

I have esophageal hypersensitivity and medicine for 2 years helped in diminishing the pain. But now it is not working and step by step he is patiently working with me to find out what is going wrong. And he is an excellent listener!
