Dr.K is retired now, much to my dismay, and I don’t know how to reach her, but I wanted to say she is hands down the best doctor that’s ever cared for me. After the birth of my son strange events forced m to seek GI care for extreme symptoms. 3 other GI specialists completely dismissed me. In fact, one wrote such bad notes it hindered my care with other specialists. Dr. Krishnamurthy didn’t let the biases of the other 3 GI doctors influence her as a doctor, she listened to me as a patient. By listening to me, and actually looking at my food journal and pictures of my issues, it only took her 5 minutes to diagnose me with the issue that had literally wrecked my life. Not only that, she knew something else was going on and wrote me a life changing referral. I’ve been diagnosed with a fairly rare condition, I would have continues to suffer with if she hadn’t referred me. She knocked 6 years out of the typical diagnostic time for this strange illness. If you’re reading this, thank you
