New patients beware! Here's my story - I set up an appointment w/ Dr. Kamat due to severe abdominal pains. He took me on as a new patient, but didn't communicate he was leaving for an extended vacation. Started me on medication, which had bad side effects. Called his office to discuss and couldn't get an answer except for "He's on vacation, we don't know." After 7 days, they finally confirmed E. Coli. I asked what the next steps were...different medication, something else? No communication for 6 more days. (Yes, I followed up.) 13 days after my initial visit, I ultimately had to go to urgent care for - you guessed it - severe abdominal pain. That doctor and nurse were shocked by how poorly Dr. Kamat and staff had acted. Not prescribing medication correctly and more. He should do much better by patients than the terrible experience I had...not to mention AGAIN being doubled up in pain for something treatable. Do better. Train your staff and plan for when you're unreachable.

Dr. Kamat and his PA listened to my concerns and recommended more mild treatment instead of going for the more invasive procedure, which I appreciated. I showed up to my appointment early and they saw me early. It was good.
