Care Philosophy

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.

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.

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.
