Second bad experience with this GI doc. Discharges patients with zero pain management. When pain comes back after procedure, had to come to the Emergency Department and wait several hours for pain medication, as the doctor on call with his practice never called back after four hours.

Dr Kanchana and his team were super effective in diagnosing my GI issues. His experience and straight forward approach got to the root cause quickly. He was also very responsive via email when I had a question. Recommend!
