About Murali Pathikonda, M.D.
Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?
Understanding the physiology of gastrointestinal tract appeals to me as I believe in enjoying a healthy meal for healthy living. Disorders of upper and lower GI tract, influenced by functions of gall bladder, liver and pancreas offer unique challenges while they might present similarly. Each patient’s needs &responses to treatment are unique and I enjoy investigating these while making them feel better. Prevention of GI cancers has been better than ever and I love to make that possible. I also enjoy treating reflux and ulcer disorders, colon cancer prevention, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD),irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), colon cancer screening and prevention.

Great doctor. Amazing personal service. I’ve never had a Gastrologist take the care and time with me like Dr.Pathekonda. He’s the best
The staff was nice and chipper. The doctors bedside manners were amazing. As soon as he walked in he introduced himself and extended his hand to me.
This was my 3 year follow up. This office runs like a well oiled machine. People are not forced through but it’s a nice flow. No long wait times in any area. All staff are cheerful & helpful. When I called back with questions. My questions were answered and left me feeling cared for and understood. It’s the same as it was 3 years ago. I highly recommend this office to all.
Great experience being it was my first visit, I was very nervous but was put at ease very easily. He truly listens, cares and explains carefully and makes sure you understand everything. You can tell he is a very compassionate and caring human being, I know he will find out what is going on with me, he was very confident we would, which made me very confident that after so many years I will finally get answers And treatment.His office staff is also amazing highly recommend ❤️
First time meeting Dr. Pathikonda. He was great listening to my issues and at finding solutions.
