Had a colonoscope in January and everything when great, this is from a 73 year guy who has had 5 colonoscopes before. I had a great experience if one could say that Dr. Sood can into my room and informed me about the results of the procedure.

After waiting 50 min past my appt time As a new patient, I was graced with his attention fir approx 3 min. I tried to ask questions etc. only to be ignored. He claims because he didn’t have the report of a colonoscopy done in July he couldn’t rule out anything. Though I shared that and another 3 yrs prior were clear. I could go on but he isn’t what I qualify as a decent MD. All staff I encountered with exception of Jordan were rude. Tried to speak to my fatigue nope. My blood pressure was 85/51

Wouldn’t listen to me explain or let me ask questions. Codescending, rude, blaming, argumentative. I left with unanswered questions and in tears. Staff is unfriendly. I gave my records to the staff three days before my appointment, not in my file, staff had to look for them. The staff gave me a blood work sheet when checking out and announced the orders on it for everybody in the waiting room to hear (privacy issue!!!). The doctor didn’t even tell me I was having blood drawn.

These reviews only matter if you PAY HEED. Avoid Sood. I saw the poor numerical ratings and mistakenly brushed them off as "only disgruntled people post negative reviews". These reviews of Sood are 100% spot on. Sood is arrogant and condescending. Sood did not read any of the referring liver specialists' notes and I had to show him even though he was clearly copied. The office Staff is incompetent and will seek to place blame on you for their mistakes. The office manager is rude. PAY HEED

Sched.Colonoscopy with Dr. Sood. He was very quick and rushed during the initial consultation.. I am a diabetic and and he completely overlooked and ignored my condition. He errantly schedule me for afternoon procedure and told me I had to fast and gave me no possible way to manage my blood sugar. My blood sugar crashed several times due to fasting without any carbs to manage my blood sugar He was on his phone texting in the procedure room with gloves on as I went under anesthesia. Terrible

Agree with most of the comments on this page. His bedside manner is deplorable. He rushes through explanations, doesn't ask if you haven question and moves on. You might get 30 seconds face to face if you're lucky. Continually trying to bill you. Ordered a blood test prior to my procedure event though I had one two weeks earlier from my primary care physician - which was sitting right in my folder if he bothered to look! Also, staff didn't properly explain the fees in advance of procedure

Dr Sood has been my GI dr for 3 years ever since I was admitted to hospital. He has helped me keep my disease symptoms under control and I have not had to go to the hospital again. His staff is very kind and helpful

Communication skills are definitely absent. That includes the ability to listen, hear, and feel compassion.for a patient. As well as explaining procedures (communicating) regarding what to expect and length. Medical skills are questionable. See Healthgrades.com. Gastroenterologists. Mal practice and reviews. Best Wishes !

This is the worse doctor I have seen in my life and I have been to many. This man is rude, condescending and does not care about his patient. You are like a lab mice to him and all he cares about is charging your insurance by doing unnecessary test and procedures even though they have already been done. His office manager whom I believe is a family member is even worse than him, very rude woman.
