Here are some of our favorites:
"I would recommend Dr. Sanaa Arastu to my family and friends after having her as my doctor for the colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. Her excellent medical procedure, thorough reports, genuine caring office visits before and after my procedure, and her great knowledge as a medical doctor in gastroenterology is helping me to treat my gastric and esophagus issues. I am grateful for Dr. Arastu who is treating my conditions to better my health to live with confidence and comfort. " - YR
"I felt comfortable with Dr. Ken Ellis as my Dr. right off the bat and the most amazing thing is despite the fact I repeatedly canceled my colonoscopy tons of times due to fear; it was ultimately his confidence in his diagnosis of me from our first meeting, and how comfortable he made me about a procedure I was terrified about to finally get me to go for my colonoscopy two days ago. After two years of delaying, everything he told me in our first meeting about what his impression/diagnosis of what was causing my symptoms was true. Luckily, I didn't have polyps at all.
Anyone who needs a colonoscopy or endoscopy please see Dr. Ellis. He is one of the best doctors I have encountered and am grateful to God that he was able to treat me plus empower me to finally get a colonoscopy. Thank you Austin Gastroenterology for helping me take my life back. You guys are amazing... and thank you once again Dr. Ellis for being such an amazing doctor." -GF
"Dr. Anupama Duddempudi and all her staff comprise one of the most professional and caring medical groups I’ve visited. I am always treated personally by each. Dr. Duddempudi is generous with giving time for my questions and concerns and for actual discussions even if they veer slightly out of her field. I’m grateful for a medical experience which leaves me feeling well cared for as an individual."
"Dr. Carl Frank has been my doctor for over 12 years. . He listens and his pleasant manner easily puts you at ease. He always knows when my reflux problem needs a check. I was having some unusual discomfort in the area of my intestines. He ordered a CT scan to be sure of what was going on. The results were that there was a possible malignancy in my uterus and water on my kidney. There was no evidence that the problem was from my colon. I am so thankful to him for being thorough and for saving my life. Needless to say, I am fortunate to have found a doctor like Dr. Carl Frank who is always there for his patients." -MW
"I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor than I have with Dr. Adam Hafemeister he is so patient and caring. He will always answer all my questions and make sure I understand what he is saying. I was just diagnosed with Crohn’s and he has helped me understand what is going on with my body and getting better. I would highly recommend Austin Gastroenterology and Doctor Hafemeister." -PT
"Dr. Robert Frachtman was amazing. He saved me money and my good sleep, as I was concerned with my abdomen pain. He spent time and did a pressure test to figure out was just a muscle tear!!! No endoscopy no or CT scan needed. He is a gem of a person and literally a savior who saves life daily!!! More power to him." -NP
"I just left my Telehealth appointment with Dr. Carl Frank. My first impression is that he is refreshingly good at listening and that his deep experience makes him an excellent diagnostician. I was expecting what I’ve grown accustom to on a first visit to a doctor. I thought there would be a rush to describe symptoms and express my concerns. Not the case. I expected vague explanations of possible causes of my issues and maybe some lab tests ordered. Instead Dr. Frank gave me a clear explanation, an actual diagnosis of what the root cause of my problem could be. I have a plan and I have relief knowing that I have found a doctor I have confidence in. I’m happy with this Gastroenterologist!" -MK
“If you must have a colonoscopy this is the place. They were on time, friendly and I never felt a thing. The anesthesia folks really know their stuff.” -LT
“Very, very professional. They treat their patients with the utmost respect. I had my first colonoscopy five years ago, and due again and definitely going to this place, once the VA puts in the paper work. I felt very safe and comfortable. If you need this procedure, I highly recommend this place!” -JT
“The entire staff was pleasant, professional and efficient. I was so nervous and everyone, from the check-in staff to nurses and techs to the anesthesiologist and finally Dr. Reddy simply made the whole experience so comfortable. Highly recommend these fine folks.” -EW
“Mikel Zamora is the absolute best!!! We are still working on my issues but she is so compassionate and knowledgeable and I have every confidence that she'll get me back to health. Mikel is Dr. Lubin's PA.” -BT
"Dr Long's office is first rate starting with the office manager. My appt was scheduled for the wrong date, either my mistake or the lady I spoke with. In any event, Dr Long's office manager put me on a waiting list and got me in the next day. Dr Long was very good at listening to my issues and wasn't in any hurry to do unnecessary procedures, which I greatly appreciate. He explained what he thought we should start with (an antibiotic) and go from there. Dr Long's nurse was so helpful in getting the prescription filled for me. She was a true lifesaver. I'm due for a colonoscopy this year so I'll be back to schedule that with Dr Long. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Top notch organization at the Cedar Park location. Five stars from me." -MW
“All the staff is friendly and professional! The easiest colonoscopy I have had to date!! Dr. Pham is outstanding and very knowledgeable! He puts you at ease with his presence! The facility is one of the best in Austin! If you ever need a colonoscopy Austin Gastroenterology and Austin Endoscopy Center are the best places to go!!!” -FF
“Dr. Harish K.Gagneja, MD and his office staff were far beyond my expectations. Everyone answered all of my questions and helped me understand my diagnosis completely. All of my calls were returned and appointments were scheduled quickly. His whole staff worked like a team and left no loose ends. I'm very pleased with the cleanliness of all the facilities and clinics. I recommend his practice to anyone who needs his professional help.” -BB
“Dr. Glenn Robinson has been my gastroenterologist for over 10 years. He is personable, extremely knowledgeable and keeps up with all the latest research, and he sincerely wants to help resolve any issues that I have. I'm grateful every time I see him whether it be for annual screening or if I'm following up about my reflux. I always know I'm going to be taken care of and given the best treatment there is for any problems I may have.” -SB
