Atlanta, GA |
I have been sitting in the room for an hour and a half, waiting to see the doctor. Nobody comes to check, and when I stuck my head out to ask, I was told there are other people... My first visit I never even saw the doctor, I was evaluated and recommended a surgical procedure by a PA.

In the past have received fantastic customer service from his entire staff. They have helped me over come a "fatty liver" and a few other colon exams over the last five years. I'm doing fantastic thanks to them...they come highly recommended.

If you just want a colonoscopy, he's as good as any other. But if you want to actually get consultation for a health problem, I don't recommend his office. After two visits, blood work, and some ultrasound, no one seemed interesting in talking to me about anything but getting a colonoscopy. So I obtained a copy of my lab results and notes. His nurse practitioner made mistakes on my initial interview, all justifying a colonoscopy. I hope you're getting the theme here. It's called "Colonoscopy".

Literally saved my life from Hep C in 2004. I've been almost free of symptoms , minor fatigue is the only indication. Also in 2013 I brought my 55 year old husband to him with 15 plus years of Hep b Hep c and cirrhosis. He had quit drinking for ten years and the first visit put him 36 . later that afternoon his staff called me and said he was now 40 !! He was at the top of the transplant list !!! Dr. Puri ( his colleague ) admitted him the next day in a Memphis. hospital .
