A two hour wait for myself and my family who was with me. Not feeling well and 2 weeks out from being in the hospital, I was very weak, and dizzy. Not much compassion from this dr. Wanted to immediately schedule a colonoscopy and endoscopy together. I felt I was too weak to go through the prep for the colonoscopy she felt otherwise. Still having abdominal pain I left the office visit with nothing more than a fistful of papers for lab work and instructions for the colonoscopy prep. I would search

Dr. Krishna is very rude and refuses to listen to her patients needs or requests. When scheduling a colonoscopy (my 3-4,but the first with her), I requested the medicine I had used for previous procedures that had been very successful. She insisted I use a medicine which required me to drink significantly more. As I predicted I spent hours the night before my procedure drinking then vomiting up most of the medicine. After the procedure she yelled at me for “not being well cleaned out” !

I went to discuss a possible colonoscopy and symptoms I've had for years. While she didn't tell me what I wanted to hear, I felt she "knew her stuff" and was honest with me. Also, her Physician's Assistant Lisa, the lab tech Nancy and the front desk staff are all outstanding, compassionate and efficient. On the initial paperwork, this practice asks how you want to be notified of results. They called me to inform me of lab results and what it meant. Good office!

I could not ask for a better GI specialist. Dr. Krishna always takes her time with me and listens to what I have to say. She explains medications and treatments in a way I can understand and gives me time to ask questions. The office staff is very pleasant and I always feel welcomed and respected.

Dr. Krishna has provided excellent service to me as a Crohns patient. She was my second opinion but now I have switched over so that she is the primary. I can’t say enough about her patience and guidance, always taking the time to listen to my concerns and questions. Her staff is also top notch.

Appreciated the knowledge and patience shared by Dr. Krishna and her assistant Trish. I felt that she listened and asked great questions to better understand my situation and propose the best treatment plan. I'm looking forward to a much improved situation very soon. The scheduling process was easy, though my condition didn't require an urgent appointment.

Went to Dr.Krishna due to some bleeding that I was having. She had me scheduled to due a colonoscopy. Needless to say I went to another gastro doctor and they found that I had a fisher tear that was causing the bleeding and gave me cream to fix the problem. She would of had me do a colonoscopy for no reason. I will never go to her and I don't advise anyone else to. If you do seek a second opinion.

When I had to wait 3 months to see anyone although very ill, I called regarding troubling symptoms after hours. I was directed to call the doctor on call even though I told the receptionist itWAS NOT an emergency. She was very nice. Well I got this witch on the phone who immediately very rudely exclaimed"THIS is NOT an emergency. Then she proceeded to drill me on who told me to call. What a nasty womanI'm young, very sick, scared. Her care philosophy is bull. Can't answer phone? A dr. ?

If you want a doctor that doesn't listen and talks at you, then she's a great fit. I have never seen a doctor with such a disrespectful bedside manner. All I can say is WOW !!!!

I saw Dr. Krishna in the Waugh Chapel office last week. I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen, found her assistant to be most helpful in gathering preliminary information, and was able to get right down to my specific symptoms when the doctor came into the room. She was interested, thorough, and gave me a clear plan to follow and scheduling follow ups before leaving was easy. A+++++
