I had to wait 30 minutes at my first visit & 45 at my second. The office staff told me he double books patients. He was nice enough but 3 weeks later I still don't have his notes I requested from a procedure I had tho his office staff has told me they sent them. Finally they said that the note had not yet been written. Also, he seemed rushed and didn't do much outside the box thinking about my gastro condition for which he was no help.

If Dr. Byju was not the kind of doctor he is, and the kind of man he is, I might have been writing this review with the assistance of a medium, because I would be dead! I was in hospital on a Saturday waiting for further action on the Monday. Dr. Byju saw me and insisted on further action being taken immediately. My wife tells me he said he would not leave until this action was done. The action was taken and led to surgery the same day!! You saved my life, Dr. Byju. Thank you!!!!
