I am big on customer service and even more so, when you are at the service/direction and care of a Doctor and his team. Dr. Kamath has been extremely helpful and patient in helping me understand the fractures on my metatarsals. He really helped put me at ease regarding the recovery and answered all my questions with the outmost patience and mundane explanation to make sure I understood the extend of my damage. Genuinely asking how I'm doing and showing true care on every visit. Not like sweet/rehearsed, but with a very confident, flip, almost friendship approach!!! I highly recommend this practice. They are flexible and efficient. Thank you

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!
