Dr. Anand is a great listener. He never seems rushed and gives you his full attention as soon as he comes in the room. Based on my experience of him I have full confidence he has my best interests in mind and I trust his expertise. He certainly deserves all the recognition he is getting in these reviews.

Most definitely I would recommend Dr Anand to my family & friends. He’s a very good doctor. He’s knowledgeable, kind, patient & has very good bedside manner. He doesn’t rush you through visits & answers all of your questions & I love that. All doctors do not do that. I’m a new patient and have only seen him three times so this is a fresh & recent opinion/review. He’s performed a colonoscopy and endoscopy procedure on me so far & I am more than pleased. I found Dr Anand through Northside drs referral. I had been with my my previous specialist for 20 yrs & he retired so I was very nervous choosing a new doctor. Northside gave me a list of doctors & I blindly chose Dr Anand & I’m so glad I did.

Dr Anand has done my colonoscopy for the past 3 years, and I’m incredibly grateful. I have dealt with chronic polyps for 15 years. My doctor referred me to Dr Anand with the expectation that he could get to the root of my issue. My most recent colonoscopy revealed no polyp, thanks to the successful removal last year. Had I read reviews a few years ago I probably would not hv become a patient. So glad I trusted my doc, now retired. Dr Anand is the best ever!
