Love Dr. Critelli! I've been seeing her for almost 6 years for long term treatment of UC. She's very personable and clear about treatment plans and options. Her in office staff is pleasant and helpful, and both of my hospital visits were just about as good as a hospital stay can be. I would definitely recommend Dr. Critelli and the rest of the staff at AGA.

Wow! I am surprised to see these negative reviews. I've been going to Dr. Critelli for years, her bedside manner is second to none. She has always listened, very detailed, thorough and followed up. Her nurse Linda is absolutely amazing. Her office has always kept me updated and followed up. I would recommend them all ten times over.

I live in the North GA Mountains. Dr. Critelli has performed 3 colonoscopies for me and has provided thorough information and followup. Previously, I lived closer to the Atlanta Metro area and for some years, chose to drive to Northside to continue to see other doctors in the Atlanta Gastroenterology group. I have confidence that Dr. Critelli is providing me with the best in gastroenterology care here in the mountains.

Today I went to see dr. Critelli and she had me waiting two hours and then with a straight face what it and know how I was. I told her I was still nauseous and hadn't heard the results of my endoscopy. She wanted to know why I hadn't gone back to the other doctor who did the procedure and I would have had to wait 3 weeks. She was cold and condescending and said there was nothing else she could do for me. then she said she couldn't even recommend a surgeon for my Gall bladder problem. Forget her
