For years I postponed having a colonoscopy. I’m ashamed I let fear rule me for so long. Dr. Kaila and her team are very caring and completely professional. The procedure itself was quick and I was able to return home shortly afterwards. All instructions were clear and easy to follow before the procedure. And Dr. Kaila was very precise with results and open for questions at the follow-up appointment. I will absolutely be seeing her for my next procedure. Thanks to all involved in our care.

Absolutely the best! Very informative and caring, even late night calls to check on me. She explained everything to me until I understood, sometimes several times! She is very patient and genuinely cares for her patients! I completely trust her!

I am Dr Kaila's patient. She is attentive/caring and knowledgeable. i trust her 100%. She is your advocate, wanting the best for your health. When was the last time u received a followup call from your Physician? Dr Kaila herself follows up. Her team at the clinic is EFFICIENT - over past couple of years that I have been with Dr Kaila, I never had to call her office twice to follow up. I highly recommend Dr Kaila.

I had previously met with a different gastro doc. I felt disappointed and rushed. On the other hand my experience with Dr.kaila was a relief. From her receptionist to her nurses where so caring and informative. Dr. Kaila took her time to listen to my symptoms and my family history.

I did not mind my colonoscopy at all with Dr. Kaila. She prepared me for the day before and her office was very accommodating if I had any questions regarding the meds. The day of the procedure she was friendly and smiling and made me feel completely relaxed.

Dr. Kaila is an amazing doc, very caring towards me. She's very knowledgeable. And if I have questions she answers them. If there's something going on she let's me talk then understands what's going on, explains it to me and changes topic to see if there's any other problem.

I Truely believe she lied to me about performing tests and she never seems to know what she has been done on me. So she asks and when I say no instead of running a test she just says ok then moves onto the next topic. I never know what medicine has been prescribed to me until I show up at the pharmacy. Appointments take forever to see her then she is barely in the room and rushes through them. Then to book tests and referrals take forever and there is a line of patients waiting/ listening.
