Follow up EGD following Gastric ulcers. Never spoke to Dr. Phatak after the procedure. Having great difficulty getting any results. In spite of their claim that nothing was wrong and the ulcers have healed, continue to have stomach discomfort and minor pain since the procedure. The procedure took twice as long as usual and the only comment was that there was a complication. Staff at Haymarket Medical Center were not helpful. Nurses who were to monitor me in recovery disappeared. Problems recovering from anesthesia. The only nurse I saw came in every 5 minutes annoyed that I wasn't up and getting dressed. His only interest seemed to be pitching me to to parking lot as fast as possible. Over all very poor patient experience leaving me with little confidence in the procedure or results. I will not use the doctor or HMC again and would not risk anesthesia with them.

Absolutely terrible bedside manner. Rude, insensitive and unwelcoming. She didn't make eye contact with my elderly 84 year old Mom when she was doing her initial consult. Instead, she sat at her laptop, and faced the opposite direction when she was taking her notes. This made difficult for my Mom to hear and was compounded by the fact that my Mom is already hard of hearing, a common limitation among the elderly population. At one point, she even yelled at her when Mom couldn't hear her questioning. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. She seems like a truly miserable person that shouldn't be practicing medicine.

Dr. Phatak was very thorough and listened to me when i described my symptoms when my prior GI did not. She knew right away what was wrong and squeezed me into her already booked procedure schedule the next day and diagnosed and treated my ulcer. She ordered several follow up procedures to ensure I was healed. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a qualified and caring GI.

I did not feel that Dr. Phatak had good follow through with my issues. I had to call several times to get test results and never felt the results were thoughtfully reviewed with appropriate treatment.
