This doctor is fabulous. He is very knowledgeable in his speciality. I had surgery with him and found him to be very warm, caring, and easy to talk to. Even my friends waiting for me through the surgery found him to be very nice and thoughtful.

Although I found Dr. Lakshman to be an excellent surgeon I did not find his office staff to hold the same standard. Many times I called the office and no one ever answered the phones nor did a recording come on to leave a message. I had surgery three weeks ago and still haven’t been able to make my follow up appointment. Before surgery I called multiple time to address some presurgery questions and the same thing occurred. I think it was three days before I was able to get someone. I find this to be unacceptable.

Excellent explanation on how certain things work in our anatomy when it comes to our GI system and colo-rectal system,he explains on how we should be in taking daily fiber and drinking plenty of water, he is the best at what he does for all his patient's, he's a colo-rectal surgeon and like any surgeon their schedules are hectic, he tends to keep it all together the best way possible to accommodate his patient's with the help of his staff. I will wait for him as long as possible, he's timing is priceless when it comes to my health.

Dr. Lakshman is the perfect combination of knowledge in his field as well as having an outstanding bedside manner. He makes you feel extremely comfortable during your office visit in what can be an uncomfortable situation. I was extremely fortunate to find what I consider to be the best Colorectal doctor in all of Central Texas. I highly recommend him to all of my friends and family. He is quite simply the best in his field.

Got Lower Anterior Resection done 2 months back by Dr. Lakshman. He is is a great surgeon. Very straightforward and nice person. He is very approachable and responsive. I was getting responses within 30 minutes for any questions I had for him pre-surgery. Surgery and recovery process was much quicker and smoother than I expected. Thanks Doc.

Dr. Lakshman is indeed the BEST Colon & Rectal Surgeon there is. If you are facing this type surgery, this is your doctor. HE is outstanding, has great bedside manners, explains things in a down to earth way so easy to understand. I had my surgery on 2/6/18 at North Austin Medical Center (what a great facility with the most caring staff) and am so pleased with how everything went. Thank you again Dr. Lakshman!

Dr. Lakshman was my surgeon for the removal of a rectal tumor using the davinci system. At every appointment he was very thorough in explaining my condition and the steps I would be going through to get disease/cancer free. I never felt rushed when asking questions and his staff was always quick to reply to my calls. I would recommend Dr. Lakshman to anyone who needs colon or rectal surgery.
