Twice now it has occurred that the prescription for the jug of liquid needed for a colonoscopy has been denied and then the pharmacy says to resubmit a different prescription. Does the office really not know what Blue Cross covers? Regardless, his office staff need training in compassion and understanding rural populations that have to drive 45 minutes to the pharmacy just to be told it was not approved. I was hung up on once and told it was my problem when trying to figure out the issue.

Yes I will recommend Dr. Munnangi to my family and friends. He's excellent in what he does. I know this for a fact. I've seen the procedures done on my mother and everything went very smoothly.

Worst Physician I have ever been too! I believe my health has worsened due to his lack of empathy and concern for my condition. I have been suffering from a colitis flare for about 3 weeks now; my appointment that was to determine if I needed to be hospitalized was canceled by the receptionist 15mins before the appt time due to the dr leaving to India. What was worse was there was no on call dr or no referral to be given the lady told me to contact my PCP. What a joke! This is why the ER crowded
