My husband called to schedule an appointment and a very rude receptionist Karen answered the phone. She rushed him off the phone and hung up on him when he was asking questions regarding a potential appointment. I then called back and proceeded to ask questions, she gave answers that made no sense and could not explain thoroughly the doctors policy regarding the acceptance of new patients. Karen needs to re-evaluate her attitude and demeanor on the phone as it is a reflection of the doctor.

Dr. Ma is great and I felt very comfortable with her. I agree with other reviewers - her staff do not seem to be interested in helping you. I can't decide it if just because they are you and most likely inexperienced or need better training or really don't care. It could definitely be a detriment to Dr. Ma's practice.

I would never recommend this doctor, they will not see you as a patient if you have ever seen another Gasto doctor. According to Jessica in the office, this is their policy and if we wanted to see Dr Ma then we should have contacted her first. I asked to speak to the office manager and she had just left and I was not allowed to leave a message. The office staff was very rude and they could care less about a patient with an issue.. This was very disappointing, doctors are suppose to care...

Did not have a chance to meet Dr. Ma. I was just calling in for a colonoscopy consultation earlier this month and the staff that answered my call is such a rude person to talk to. That is why I ended up looking for another doctor.

Dr. Ma is wonderful at listening and explaining her plan of treatment. I have had 2 colonoscopies and 3 endoscopies performed by Dr. Ma. She was wonderful, kind, and caring.

Dr. Ma was the physician I used for my colonoscopy. From start to finish, it was smooth sailing. Dr. Ma is very professional and knowledgeable. The procedure was done at Southern Hills Hospital. Very short wait time from when I got there until I had the colonoscopy done. Hospital staff was very friendly as well.
