I highly recommend Dr Gandhi. Since many years I have issues with hemorrhoids. I switched from another doctor to her care and my experience with her was completely different from the previous one. My previous doctor made me feel very uncomfortable and hopeless about my issues, but Dr Ghandhi is very kind, explains everything clearly and listens to my feedback and questions. Every visit with her feels comfortable and hopeful. She is also an amazing surgeon. I had several procedures done by her and everything went very well.

I should know soon to be 66 I Have had 17 Colon-Scopes, Why Disease like Cancer Starts in The Colon, Having Had Cancer For 14 Years With Tumors and Other issues, I Have Been Taken a Lot of Shots with My Health and it is Genetic, I do not Smoke and Drink but from a 9/11/2001, 1000 Visits Helping and Transporting The Homeless My Health is Been Given a Big Bang, So I Pay Special attention to Great Doctors and I Found one and Her Name is Nipa Gandhi MD, She is Special.

Dr. Ghandi is an excellent surgeon and an extraordinary teacher. She is an expert in her field and has performed two successful surgeries which have yielded amazing results. Dr. Ghandi is the best colorectal Doctor I have been to in ten years and I travel two hours to see her and it is time well spent. She genuinely cares about her patients health and makes sure the patient understands their diagnosis, treatment and aftercare. The world needs more Surgeons like Dr. Ghandi??????????????
