Patient Comments (1)
Sterling, VA |
Dr. Lakhani has been my gastroenterologist for many years as I am an ulcerative colitis patient. He has been willing to work with me on which medications will work best and been willing to listen to my preferences. He assured me at our first meeting that if he ran into a problem that he was unfamiliar with he would consult with his colleagues. At a recent colonoscopy that he did he was both supportive and encouraging, knowing how much I despise the procedure.
