I have been a patient of Dr. Gupta’s for many years. He first treated me for GERD. He was knowledgeable and very compassionate. I feel he saved my life. Most recently he diagnosed and treated me for gastroparesis. He sat down with me and explained what was happening inside my body and recommended a special diet and medication to ease the pain and healing of my stomach. At all times he has been a knowledgeable professional and a compassionate physician.

Susan in Fayetteville NC – Feb 03, 2018
Don't go to this doctor! I went to him 3 times complaining of stomach pain. The last appointment, he said to take peppermint oil. Seriously?! AND, I had awesome health insurance! It was already known I had a hyatial hernia from an endoscopy 5 years earlier. I finally left the practice! My new gastroenterologist immediately ordered an endoscopy and found several possibilities for the stomach pain I've been experiencing! Dr. Gupta is lazy, arrogant and refuses to believe the patient.
