Dr. Subhas is an unbelievable surgeon. He performed my Laproscopic Sigmoid Colectomy and I would recommend him for anyone seeking colorectal surgery. He informed me well of my condition and the operation I needed. Everything was explained very well by him, and he genuinely cares about you. After my surgery he even gave me his personal cellphone number to call him anytime with any questions or issues I have. I have never had this kind of amazing treatment by a surgeon in my life! I desperately while sick tried to find a surgeon who was committed, kind, and comforting. Dr. Subhas is all of that and more. Never had a surgeon or doctor as great as him! I am so thankful we found him, he was the absolute perfect surgeon for my case!

Dr. Subhas was very informative with my problem. He made me feel very confident about going forward with the surgery. He and his staff were VERY accommodating with a surgery date. I asked for a certain date and they made it work. After the surgery he again explained every thing and I felt good about the outcome. I left in no pain or nausea which has been a problem for me with past surgeries. VERY impressed with Dr. Subhas. Many thanks to him.

I received extremely excellent care. Dr. Subhas is a very good listener. He does not miss a detail. Caring, understanding and is thoughtful beyond medical treatments. He sincerely cares about your life and how you can live with your condition. He is a complete professional and I would recommend Dr. Subhas for Gastrointerlogy and General Surgery, both of which I received perfect treatment. His medical knowledge is boundless. I trust him totally. Thank you Dr. Subhas.

The wait time was minimal and the receptionist were very friendly! Dr. Subhas patiently waited for me to describe my symptoms and listen to my mom express her concerns about what was going on. After all our worries were addressed and thoroughly talked about, Dr. Subhas had a plan in place. He knew what test to run and what he was looking for. On top of all of that Dr. Subhas called me with my results right away, he explained them to me, and explained any future action or what my next step would be! I highly recommend Dr. Subhas for any GI issue or anything really! I’ve never left a place with a feeling of peace knowing that the doctor fully understood and believed me.

Dr. Subhas was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I am so happy that all the biopsies taken at the time of my colonoscopy are negative. I am pain free with the help of an anti acid medication.

I had to get a Peritoneal Dialysis tube placed and was frankly mortified as I've never experienced having to have any type of surgical procedure.. Dr. Subhas really put my mind at ease and did great with my surgery! All my tube flushes have looked amazing and it looks like there was no trauma during surgery. It's been about 2 1/2 weeks and I feel great, with a very fast and easy recovery. Thank you!
