By far the worst doctor in my 52 years. Told me " I don't do this for the money. I'm good at what I do . I'll kick you to the curb if you don't have anything good to say

For the past year I have had some very extreme gi issues that I almost passed away from. All I'm trying to do is find a dr to help me get healthy again and back to my life. This dr was extremely mean and not understanding. How he has been in business for as long as he has, I do not know. Would not listen to what I had to say, when I was able to get a word in he made me feel like I was incompetent with not a clue what I was talking about going through. Highly recommend finding someone else.

Good luck trying to get through to them on the phone! What a joke this place is. Heaven forbid a med prescribed to you is making you sick, you can't get anyone on the phone to help change it. The place is smelly and gross. Very, very, very unprofessional place!!!

Dr. Chavakula comes into the office with an air of superiority always accompanied by a young female intern. I am having intestinal difficulties and I feel uncomfortable talking about these disorders, especially in front of a young lady. He completely ignored my feelings. I underwent a stressful procedure that required me to fast for two days and was never allowed to see the results. When asked if he could help, that I was feeling miserable he told me he doesn't do miserable and walked away
