I have had two endoscopic procedures with this doctor, my wife has had one procedure, and we have been very satisfied with her performance, with one exception. In both of my procedures, I waited the requisite time period for my biopsy results, and when they were not provided, I contacted the Huntersville practice location. In one case I was told that I just needed to be more patient. In the second instance, I was given contradictory information about the availability of the report, and was ultim

Dr. Devi Thangavelu has been amazing and I’m so glad I switched to Charlotte Gastro from my old provider. The level of care far exceeds the place I used to go. I don’t feel like a number. The staff has been so friendly and it’s a great experience both times I’ve been to the offices.

I am shocked; truly shocked at the treatment that I received from this doctor. She dismissed my concerns and misplaced my records. Failed to order tests in a timely manner. I am unable to digest food at all and she has done nothing to determine the cause of my problem. She is a shell of a person without caring and absolutely no ability to think analytically about a problem. After a year and a half of being unable to digest solid food and with no diagnosis or help on the horizon I have final

This doctor missed that my mom had stage four pancreatic cancer. Once my mom switched doctors an mri was scheduled immediately and my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer that had spread to her liver. Very sad as my mom had been trying for well over a year to find an answer to her persistent abdominal pain and no imaging of her abdomen had ever been done by Dr. Thangavalu. Please see someone who will get to the root of your health concerns and see someone else before it is too late.

i`m sorry but i find this Dr to be horrible...she has caused my wife unnecessary pain for a year...all you get when you call is a voice mail and your lucky to receive a response.....it took a nurse i personally sold a car to to fill me in and what she said made total sense.My wife has severe Crohn`s disease and all she did was test after test with NO good results to re leave some of her pain...she has lost so much weight,can`t eat severe stomach pain and yet nothing is ever done.....we are DONE.

Dr. Thangavelu is an outstanding physician. She listens to my concerns and offers effective solutions. I feel like she's not just telling me what to do, but letting me be a partner in my own healthcare.
