Dr. Kamath's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kamath "After receiving a B.A. in human biology and anthropology at Emory University in just three years, Dr. Suma Kamath completed her medical degree (M.D.) at University of Tennessee Health Science Center in her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. She completed her pediatric residency at St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan and then went on to complete her pediatric gastroenterology fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital at Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Kamath is dedicated to her patients and their parents and makes the process of managing a child's illness easier through compassion and communication. She enjoys working with children, their families, their schools, and their pediatricians to figure out what works best for each individual child. She takes great joy in using her medical knowledge to improve the daily lives of children with digestive diseases. Dr. Kamath has a special interest in eosiniphilic esophagitis and a personal interest in inflammatory bowel disease. She has also joined the multidisciplinary team at the Center for Digestive Diseases and Swallowing Disorders at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens so that children and infants with swallowing or feeding difficulties can benefit from the expertise of a pediatric gastroenterologist, swallow therapist, and nutritionist all at one central location. Dr. Kamath clinical interests also include nutrition, constipation, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Flushing, NY |
I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kamath. She has treated two of my sons and has provided excellent, attentive care. She is extremely detailed and patient in her explanations. I feel that she truly listens to my concerns and takes the time to explain things thoroughly. She also provides print outs of the information she shares so that I can refer to it later. If you are searching for a pediatric GI doctor, I would suggest considering Dr. Kamath.

This Doctor barely understands medicine much less a subspecialty... We went to her and she was obviously confused about our issues and got everything wrong. But she kept talking at future appointments, as though trying to convince herself that she was right...and kid was super-sick. Don't ever listen to this woman...stay away!
