Bad experience here. Late to my endoscopy never bothered to talk to me or explain my condition, didn't bother to make a follow up appointment. Ive called her practice a total of 3 times to try and get answers to my questions with no luck. They never call back and don't care. Don't bother coming...more

Here is my thought about Dr Gowri.... She is most knowledgeable and smart decision maker Dr..... I have seen different Gastroenterologist from East coast to west coast but no one can match with Dr Gowri's knowledge... you can blindly believe on Her... She is such a great Dr in USA.

Completely incompetent office staff. They expect you to wait over an hour for an appointment. I walked out after 30 minutes. Thank god I did not waste anymore time on a doctor and office staff the utterly clueless

I'm trying to get appointment last couple day and their receptionists are just bunch of stupid people. And we end up that they are not accept the Molina Marketplace. But in the first time, they confirmed that the insurance is fine. I don't know what to say.
