Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Trankina "After 11 years of medical practice as a member of a large GI group in Marietta, I branched out on my own to provide more focused and personal gastrointestinal care at a more relaxed pace. Recent Medical Studies have shown that there's a 10 fold difference between equally well trained gastroenterologist at finding and removing polyps (precancerous growths in the colon) at screening colonoscopy. The difference is finding a doctor who doesn't pack his schedule, and is willing to take the time necessary to perform a careful, thorough colonoscopy."

Trankina is a great doctor. I feel he has been very thorough in diagnosing and treating issues. My only complaint is wait time in office. However, in that he spent a lot of time discussing my issues and mapping a plan, I can see how it happens. I try to get morning early morning appts to reduce likelihood of delay.

I've been very happy with Dr. Trankina, and his staff. He has been very attentive, performed my EGD without complications. He has helped give me relief to my problem. I have no complaints.
Disappointing. Long wait for the same routine answers I have heard from GP's. I expected more from a specialist. Still looking for a good GI doc.

My appointment was scheduled for 2:45 every Sunday at the office at 2 o'clock dr. Trankina in his office was running 1 hour behind it was almost 4 o'clock before I got sick when I did finally get seen I waited for months and months to see what it's supposed to be the best doctor 4 Gastrology, he turned out to be extremely rude he walked into the room. I tried tospeak, he barely gave me a minute to tell him those he turned around he told me what he thought it might be didn't let me.terrible Dr.

Office staff does not return calls. Promises to return calls but does not follow through. Terrible / non existent response time.
in Woodstock, GA |
I personally do not have an issue with Dr. Trankina himself. What was lacking was the office staff's poor response to Messages left. Called on a Friday morning, Left message no response, Called Monday talked to receptionist who then put me on hold and to wait until the office nurse was done. Waited 10 minutes on hold and then automatic back to voicemail. Left message no return call. Tuesday morning extreme abd pain left message finally return call at 3 pm while in the ER I was admitted C diff.
