Patient Comments (1)
Rochester, NY |
I was a patient of Dr Penmetsa for almost 7 months although I only actually saw him twice near the end. I couldn't eat and as regurgitating everything for the whole time, losing almost 70 lbs. He diagnosed me with acid reflux and told me to change my diet...even though couldn't eat! I ended up switching to a GI air Strong who discovered that I have achalasia and saved my life. This doctor literally could have killed me with his incompetence.
