Yes, [name removed], I saw Dr. Palta she was very rude and she wanted to she just tracked how many times I was there didn't talk about what was going on with me and she egotistical that I asked for a second opinion, a few years back and I did I find that very disheartening and therefore I will not be one of her patients.

I was disappointed in the staff, not the doctor, but in the staff, having a gift exchange and making all four of us and different nations, including myself wait extra long time in the waiting room while, they have their gift exchange at 10 o'clock in the morning making us. Wait in there and wait in the rooms as well. Well, they did that and they're laughing and talking and cropping having a good old time during patient it was unprofessional and I did not enjoy waiting extra time when I had a had a set time for my appointment.

I just wanted to say that they took care of me very well. I'm very comfortable. They make sure that I wasn't the parade of anything and everything went well, and they explained everything as to what they were going to do. And what I had done and what they found or whatever, and I would definitely do it all over again. And Dr. Caracas, a very good doctor and I like her very much. She was very good and kind. Thank you.

Hi, I made an error on the last question regarding would like to refer people to the office. The staff are fabulous, and I inadvertently pressed a one. It should have been a 4. So if you could please correct that, I'd appreciate it. I am full on proponent of PIH health. I appreciate the work and value the care and the quality of care that's provided there. Thank you.

Yes, the girl who took care me first, answered all the basic questions. She was very kind and listened. And then when Dr. Palta came in, I was pleasantly surprised she was so casual and so, I'm so relaxed and she listened to me. And if she was sympathetic and she, she asked my opinion. And and set me on a good plan, which I agreed with.

The registration staff and all three Nurses were excellent! The anesthesiologist was a little on the flat side and I only time saw Dr Palta for a quick second was at the foot of my bed before I was given the anesthesia for my procedure. The GI unit runs like a well oiled machine! I was for the most part satisfied with the care I received.
