Dr. Iyer is very personable and caring. He responds quickly to follow up questions through the patient portal. He's also proactive and follows up with patients. I started going to him at the beginning of a medical crisis and I'm glad that I found such a great doctor.

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.

One of the most caring and thorough doctors that has ever treated me! When other doctors...my PC and emergency room doctors were stumped, Dr. Iyer would not give up until he figured out the cause of my symptoms. Once treatment started, I was better within a week, and a year later...I feel like I was given a new lease on life! I would highly recommend to anyone in need of a gastroenterologist!
