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
