Odessa, TX |
I have been having severe stomach pains and made an appointment 7 weeks out only to go to my appointment and be told that he wasn't in the office. Which was beyond unprofessional.

I have received nothing short of wonderful care by Dr. Dhanuka. He took my health concerns seriously and helped me to quickly get into treatment that has helped improve my symptoms greatly! He was also friendly and compassionate! Thanks Dr D.!

I am a Colon Hydrotherapist in Redding Ca. I believe that Dr. Dhanuka is one of the very best Gastrologist in Northern Cal. I trust him! The Dr. and the staff were helpful and kind to me. Dr Dhanuka listened to me and actually sat down and went over all of the results. I don't see that much these days... Thank you Dr. Dhanuka...I send clients to you with confidence.

They did a full Anesthesia (their standard of care according to their office) on a standard Colonoscopy without getting it preauthorized and also had me sign the waiver the morning of the procedure in case my insurance doesn't pay, which apparently they do not for full anesthesia but I was not told that, but rather was led to believe the approval had not come through yet, when in fact they had not even submitted it for pre-authorization according to Anthem. Now they are asking for $200. Scam!
