What People Say About Dr. Sunil Lal, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I had a scheduled colonoscopy with Dr. Lal in early July 2019. His staff prepared me for this procedure, which I had no idea would be so invasive. I had the intention of using a ride-share to return home after the procedure. But, his staff members were very kind and professional in explaining the dangers involved with this. I was advised to call a family member or a close friend who could pick me up after the procedure and see that I got home safely. They were very thorough in explaining this, and I greatly appreciated it.

Dr. Lal has a way of explaining what your problem is, what has cased it, and what his next steps will be. All is presented in a way that is very confident and reassuring. When dealing with Dr. Lal and all of his staff you get the feeling you are the only patient they have, and take all the time needed to address your questions. Most important is immediately you know your dealing with a good man and a well ran staff.

I felt everyone cared about me on the day of my procedure. I was told to expect a call or text in a couple of days to see if I'm doing well. I am also scheduled for a follow-up appointment in a few weeks.

He genuinely acts like he cares in those brief ten minutes a patient gets with him after waiting forever in the waiting /exam rooms. He’s too eager to scope and less apt to listen to his patients about what works for them in the past especially if the patient has a long history with Crohn’s. I was his patient for a year and grew tired of his arrogance.

Dr Lal was straightforward about my upcoming routine colonoscopy procedure. He stated he will take good care of me. I'm very pleased with our brief conversation. So far, I'm very pleased with Dr. Lal and his office staff. If possible, I will update my comments after my procedure next month.
