After 6 months of other health issues, This Gem of gentlemen was/is patient. He listened provided care above any Dr. he had kudos from many others, unprovoked from me. I heard others referring to him while staying in Hospital for Stroke. HE provided a level of care not seen before. Mind you I've seen over 100 Dr's in my 54 years. Be honest with him tell all info you can trust him and at least try his suggestions. Heck that's why you go to doctors, isn't it?

My gallbladder was removed in November 2016. 2 mos later I had severe chest pain, so I went to the emergency room at Northside Hospital. I had a quad bypass in 2014, so doctors were convinced it was a heart problem. After a number of tests, with no diagnosis, my liver was showing signs of stress. Dr Kamath was asked to do a consult. He said it was most likely a gall stone. It was and he found it lodged in my bile duct causing great pain. He removed it.Pain gone liver now OK. Fantastic

Dr Kamath was wonderful. I'd had a bad experience with another gastroenterologist two years ago, so I was very careful about my research regarding a new one. His staff was wonderful, the facility where I got the colonoscopy was great and the doctor himself was very pleasant and concerned. I was called the day after my procedure as a check up to make sure I was doing OK. I have recommended Dr Kamath to my sister, fiance and a neighbor.

I recommend Dr. Kamath to anyone I talk with that might need this kind of specialist. He and his staff have been very helpful over the years. I have been seen by him for over 12 years. He is patient and always calm when speaking to me.
