I suffered with many issues, and one of which was intestinal. Dr Iyer, is on an entire different level of care, he emails you back, calls. He makes you feel important. I’m a scientist and I’m impressed by how thorough he is. This guy is the “ Dr. House” of Gastroenterology!

Thankfully I have no serious gastro. related issues. I was overdue for a routine colonoscopy and needed to find a new Gastroenterologist, having moved from the peninsula to the southside. I chose Dr. Iyer ("i-year") based on the number and type of reviews, the type being key: kind, personable, patient, thorough, competent. My conversations with him before and after the procedure were brief but telling. He was encouraging, courteous, and open to any questions or concerns. The check-in nurse and his attending nurses were efficient, professional, empathetic w/good senses of humor, and likewise encouraging. The front office handled paperwork before and after accurately, and Dr. Iyer's documentation (mini report) of the procedure and results I received in the mail was excellent. Maybe not suitable for cocktail party conversation, but great for medical records!

Dr. Iyear is an exceptional doctor. He's very patient, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. Dr. Iyear explained the diagnosis in simple terms and allowed ample time for questions. We never felt rushed or hurried. We left with a clear understanding of the diagnosis and the treatment plan. On a scale of 1 to 10 Dr. Iyear is a 12.

Dr. Iyer and his team has been phenomenal. Since the beginning of his care, he has been the most genuine, transparent, eager to help physician I have ever had. Any question I’ve had he has gotten back to me within 24 hours. Despite having numerous patients, Dr. Iyer has always made me feel like I am his only patient. He is eager to help, always having a positive outlook and encouraging attitude. I would recommend Dr. Iyer to anyone because I know the significant impact his care has done for me.
