After dealing with gastro doctors most my adult life with no avail I went to Dr. Gamagami and explained my problems. After trying some meds to make sure if I need surgery or not it was determined that I would need the surgery. Dr. Gamagami was excellent in handling my condition. and a great surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone who needs Colectomy surgery.

Dr Gamagami, was not only an excellent surgeon, but has excellent bedside manner. When everyone at the hospital talks about him with praise, you know that says something about his character.

Dr. Gamagami and I were brought together in the ER at Silver Cross Hospital. I was admitted under his care. He lead a team of physicians, nurses, and technicians who were very concerned about my care and well-being. His treatment plan took a conservative approach so that he could prepare me for surgery a few weeks later. His plan provided me with the best possible outcome I could have imagined. He is a talented, and skilled surgeon who listens with a compassionate heart.

I would like to make it perfectly clear that I never met Dr Gamagami, nor interacted with him on any level. I am confident that he is an excellent Surgeon because Silver Cross Hospital is the best Hospital in the nation and allow only the most competent individuals on their staff. My grievance is with Dr Gamagami's egregiously incompotent Staffing Assistants. This space doesn't allow me enough characters to articulate what transpired or one would be angered at best, incensed at worst. Horrible.

Listened to specific issues I have with a congenital skin condition (ichthyosis) and adhesives and took steps to minimize damages caused by adhesives.
