Dr. Krishnamurthy is Exceptional!
My experience with Dr. Krishnamurthy was a 10! As soon as I met her, my anxiety about the procedure immediately disappeared. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring. She took the time to answer my questions and I truly felt I was in the best hands possible. My experience with her was positive from start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to any friends or family!

Dr Krishnamurthy is always very personable. When I have questions, she answers them very professionally and in a way I can understand them. I never feel “rushed” during my appointments. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for a highly qualified gastroenterologist.

I was very pleased with Dr Krishnamurthy. I don’t like changes and my anxieties flare, she made me feel very relaxed and answered any questions I may have had. The entire setting with the Dr. and staff was the best I have ever encountered, very warm feeling was present. Dr. Krishnamurthy was new for me, she will definitely be my forever choice now. I will definitely refer her to my neighbors, family and friends.

Great Experience!
Having my first colonoscopy could not have gone smoother. The staff explained every step of what to expect and ensured I was comfortable. The prep was easy to follow and I had no pain or discomfort at all. Dr Krishnamurthy truly cares about her patients and has a wonderful bedside manner. Highly recommend!!!

Untrustworthy and unprofessional
I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Krishnamurthy which went smoothly and she was lovely. I went back to her several months later with severe intestinal bleeding, in severe pain, she listened and was very thoughtful in her care with my visit. I was sent out for labs, which I did immediately and I never heard from her again. I called her office and left messages, I called the lab who also told me she was not responding to their inquiries regarding my lab that was ordered incorrectly. Once I finally got a hold of her assistant 2 weeks later, the assistant was unprofessional and took no accountability for the complete dismissal and lack of my care. I told her the lab also informed me the Dr office was not responsive, she said "Well, you can believe what you want to believe". Considering they were ignoring my calls, I never got results , and the lab also said they called her office for 7 days with no response, I would not trust this office and I would never refer anyone to this Dr.
