After a routine colonoscopy and polyp removal, I had to go back and have 3 clips put in to stop massive bleeding

No doubt about it, Dr Narasimhan is a great doctor, if you can get to see him. However, I find it strange that he is accepting new patients when it takes over 6 months for an existing patient to get an appointment and then they call and laughingly cancel that appointment less than 24 hours before it and then smugly reschedule it for an additional 2 months out, so in effect 8 months for an existing patient to get an appointment. Not a joke, true story.

Dr. Narasimhan is a top notch doctor. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable & skilled, he is kind, compassionate & very attentive to his patient's needs. I felt completely at ease after just a few minutes with him. I would also add the staff working with Dr. Narasimhan at the Lahey Peabody treated me as he did, with skill, kindness & compassion. Under difficult circumstances, (the ac was down the day of my visit) the staff performed flawlessly & showed great character.

Dr Narasimham is a fantastic Doctor. He is kind compassionate and listens to your concerns and will spend time with you and does not rush his time with you As far as having procedures he is gentle and makes them go easy I would much rather have a endoscopy with dr narasariham than go to the dentist. If you are looking for a top notch gastro Doctor look no further he is the best I think he is a ten star plus

Dr. Narasimhan is very compassionate and personable in addition to his vast knowledge in his field. He is proactive informing me of developments in the area of my diagnoses and medications. He has always devoted plenty of time for my appointments and is always available to me by phone should I need his care. I have always been very satisfied with Dr. Narasimhan's care and would most definitely recommend him to family and friends.
