Both the PA and Dr. Chennat were excellent in every way. They took time to listen and respond to me and were interested in my symptoms and situation. Dr. Chennat consulted with a radiologist on my behalf while I was there. She was professional but warm and approachable. I will continue to see her as my gastroenterologist.

Dr. Chennat was very nice and listened to my concerns with my bowel issues. Was pleased that she ordered a rectal manometry on March 11 at 1:00pm to see why I don't get any urge to move my bowels. However I was very very disappointed the next day when nurse called and told me they cancelled the test. Told me to drink a bottle of citrate of magnesium up to 3 times and call them in 3 months. I go a week and have no urge to move my bowels until I take something. Heard this center was the best and this issue would be addressed and disappointed that they did no test to check way I have no urge to move my bowels.

I think she is the best MD for my problem

Dr Chennat and her RN Laura are always very respectful, helpful, and get back to me in a prompt fashion whenever I have any questions for them.
