Mixed Experience
I had a successful endoscopy procedure with Doctor Prabakaran. Few years after, I went to see him, with a referral from my doctor to check if I might be impacted by a gastrocardiac symptom or Roemheld syndrome that involves a complex of symptoms where issues with the gut are found to be associated with cardiac symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, palpitations, skipped beats, and arrhythmias. I had tachycardia attacks and shortness of breath after eating. The doctor told me this syndrome was not existing and typed it into his database to show there were no results. He was also not aware of what was a gastrocardiac symptom. I was a bit astonished by the lack of knowledge in this area and didn't want to continue the conversation with something he obviously was not aware of. I showed the details on Wikipedia for his awareness and maybe a future patient. He told to try to find a "university to get tested" and that he was not able to do anything but charged me a long visit.

Not only is Dr. Prabakaran an excellent physician, he is kind, empathetic to your concerns and is open to your questions. He takes his time with you. I felt very comfortable with him at my initial appointment which affirmed my confidence and trust in him regarding today’s procedure. He performed my colonoscopy and I was very pleased with his surgical staff as well. Post-op, Dr. Prabakaran spoke with my husband and me to discuss the results. I highly recommend him. His bio is quite impressive.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Prabakaran. I am still under his care. My first visit, he took time to listen to "all" my complaints; addressed each one and is following up with tests. No doctor in Naples/MArco has given me this much time and willing to "honestly" listen.
