What People Say About Dr. Jayant Talreja, MD

I usually do not like doctors but Dr. Talreja and his staff are very compassionate and professional. He has performed 2 procedures on me and each time made me feel at ease. He will speak with you and explain things, in which you can comprehend. His staff are just as courteous and do not make you feel like you are just another patient. This makes a big difference, especially when you are nervous. I would highly recommended them to anyone who is looking for a GI doctor.

Dr Talreja is an average doctor. Not outstanding on spending time with patients. All this is true unless you are dealing with his staff to get through to him. They are unresponsive, slow, often do not follow up and respond to requests and do not appear to pass on that information to Dr. He needs to clean house and get a better staff. He is the worst by far of my specialists.

I've never been more disappointed in a practice. My lab results are never communicated to me unless I contact them. When I contact them my calls aren't returned and I have to physically go to the office for someone to answer me. I am never able to directly communicate with my doctor and there is a constant lack of compassion when there is an urgent matter. I'm very dissapointed and will be seeking help elsewhere.

Dr. Talreja was professional and kind. More importantly the nursing staff working with him was excellent. They were the people I interacted with the most. They were friendly, had a caring attitude, and made sure to answer any questions I had.

Dr. Talreja is very friendly and does everything he can to ensure that you feel better. He also explains all of the tests that he is running and why he is doing so to help ease your mind. He has helped me very much within the past year and I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Talreja has been straight forward in his discussions, very clear in the path of treatment, and respectful of the situation. The staff is very confident of his expertise and admire his treatment of patients, as I do. He has taken the time needed to explain things and is always patient to answer an additional question. I feel like when he speaks to me he is committed to spend the time it takes to clearly communicate with me. I recommend him highly.

Thought he was good in person, but then didn't follow up after telling me I needed an endoscopy. I had called to ask a few questions, and followed up another time, with no reply for two weeks. Going elsewhere because I want a doctor who will call me back. Also, I waited for an hour to see him, and have a very hard time getting through to the front desk when calling, making the whole experience even more irritating.

First, I am a nurse. We have very specific requirements when it comes to choosing a doctor. Dr Talreja came highly recommended to me. I have a strong family history of colon cancer and was terrified to have a colonoscopy! Ridiculous, I know. He was empathetic and listened to all my concerns. He gave specifics and realistic expectations. He's my GI guy forever!!

Excellent. As a Nurse Anesthetist, I have the distinct advantage of watching lots of gastroenterologists work. I chose Dr. Talreja for my own physician because of his good judgement, calm demeanor, and ability to think clearly in difficult situations. I was very pleased with my experience and recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Talreja is the GI Specialist on a team of doctors treating my wife's cancer. Within 2 days of diagnosis, Dr. Talreja scheduled an emergency endoscopy to get a biopsy of the mass. Over several months, he has placed 2 intestinal stents and performed a nerve blocking procedure. During hospital stays, either he or his excellent nurse practitioner made daily rounds to monitor her stomach mobility. Many of her procedures were done after normal working hours as he put her needs above family time.

As a health care provider and a patient, I would recommend Jayant Talreja, MD. He has superior educational credentials. Dr. Talreja has an excellent grasp of the complicated anatomy and physiology of the GI system. He combines this with wonderful technical skills that are so important in the clinical area. Finally, Dr.Jayant Talreja, displayed a warm, compassionate bedside manner that I felt treated me as an individual. I received his undivided attention. I felt lucky to have him as my doctor.
