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!

Dr. Subhas first treated me when I was in the hospital for colitis. He was kind & showed genuine concern for my well-being & I respected his expertise. The treatment he ordered cleared up the problem. I saw him at the office for followup & everyone at the office was great.

I was very pleased with Dr. Subhas. As one of is patients stated he helped me with a very uncomfortable and embarrassing situation. He fixed my problem with no pain. I will definitely go back to him and refer him to anyone without hesitation. Also his nurses or Assistants were very professional and made me feel at ease on my first appointment. Very professional staff.

Dr. Subhas was very friendly, kind, and attentive to my concerns/questions. I had a appendectomy done and have been pleased with my progress since surgery 3 weeks ago. I would recommend him for this surgery.

Saved my life! I went to ER with a perforated bowel and septic. He performed my emergent surgery with success. I'm on the road to being 100%. Explained surgery so I was able to understand the process to make an informed decision. I couldn't ask for anyone better.

I am a colon cancer survivor with a terminal ileostomy and current bleeding. Dr. Subhas provided excellent care and was extremely knowledgable. I couldn't ask for better care. His ostomy nurse was also extremely helpful.
