Receptionist couldn't care less about your problems. Scheduler couldn't care less if you lived or died if you ever succeed in reaching her. I love the doctor, but he needs to fire his arrogant, absent, insensitive staff.

Dr. Banerjee performed my colon resection in 2006. I have never had a problem since. His personality and bedside manner were phenomenol and he comes highly recommended by colleagues in his field. He has done literally thousands of these types of surgery and I would trust him with my life!

Dr. Banerjee treated my accute ulcerative colitis in 1991-1993. He was gentle, informative and knowledgeable. His bedside manner is second to none. I have been healthy ever since and would recommend he and his practice without hesitation. Dr. Banerjee saved my life - and I am not exaggerating.
