I have had two procedures performed by Dr. Hum not counting colonoscopies . The last one two months ago was a colon resection. My experience was that she is caring, kind, informative and patient. Being in our 60s, my wife and I had so many questions and concerns. I can't imagine any doctor being anymore profess and kind. I would recommend her to anyone I loved and wanted to have the very best care .

I am a 60+ year old male. Born and raised in Atlanta. When I needed a colon doctor a 5 years ago I asked Doctors and medical professionals who they would entrust their own father's care to. Dr. Monica Hum was consistently at the top of the list. Since then, I have had surgery and excellent care from her and her associates. I had an ER admittance to the hospital due to complications of diverticulitis. Her associate Dr. Ramakrishnan was on call. She, just like Dr. Hum took charge professionally.

I wish every doctor I visited had the expertise, understanding, and ability to diagnose and treat that Dr. Hum has. After seeing another doctor for almost a year, with no diagnosis, I was finally referred to Dr. Hum, who quickly diagnosed my condition and has taken great pains to explain what is happening and to listen to and answer my questions. Dr. Hum has helped me understand how to negotiate the situation that is the new normal for me. I cannot overstate how excellent she is. Go see her!
