What People Say About Dr. Leena Tarigopula, MD

Dr Tarigopula performed a colonoscopy today. The procedure was on time, the medical staff was welcoming, efficient, and helpful. Dr Tarigopula met with me before the procedure, answered all of my questions (including how the scope gets around corners) The procedure was quick and painless (less than a half hour) and I got to see the inside of my colon on the monitor. And she answered a question while she was working. She came back to my bed and gave me a report, and wished me well. I received a written report with and a follow up call.

Dr. Tarigopula was fantastic. I went in for an endoscopy and was very nervous. She was attentive to my needs and made the whole procedure seamless! I would highly recommend Dr. Tarigopula.

Went to the ER for an esophageal obstruction. I already know the cause and am working with a specialist, so I told everyone not to waste their time or my money on a biopsy... she did one anyway just because she wanted to get an updated result. She's NOT my Dr and she had no right.

I have seen many Gastroenterologists. I had severe ulcerative colitis that led to abnormal cells in the colon which led to a total colectomy w/J-pouch. Dr. Tarigopula has been my doctor for the post 8-10 years after the colectomy. I feel very comfortable with her and feel she is one of the best Gastroenterologists around.
