"Outstanding service from Dr Garapati, very knowledgeable, wise, patient, friendly. Also his team is great (assistant Brenda, receptionist Rene). The facility is very clean and spacious, not crowded. The on-site lab has a fast, friendly and very professional service (nurse Belen). I strongly recommend this."

"Dr. Garapati is the best gastroenterologist I’ve ever had! Talk about being an incredible doctor and having the IT factor! Communication and kindness are two qualities that are very overlooked in most doctors, but these are two of the best traits with Dr. Garapati. He’s so sincere, will listen and understand everything you’re saying, and then will provide his best medical opinion, which has also been wonderful and helped me out so much. I’ve never felt more comfortable with any other gastroenterologist. Every time I walk out of his office, I feel so relieved and comfortable, and like things are going to be okay, just from how great of a visit it was. I would truly recommend him to anyone, from the bottom of my heart, not only to get a fantastic medical opinion, but also to be very sincere and honest with you, while still making sure he hears you out completely and makes you feel comfortable."

"From scheduling to my initial arrival to my appointment, Dr Karthiks office was professional and so friendly. They answered all of my questions promptly and it was a breeze giving insurance information as well as the actual appointment. They made me feel comfortable and like they really cared. Thank you for a wonderful experience!"

"I have been suffering with dysphasia for several years and was referred to Dr.Garapati by my primary doctor and I have to say I have never been treated with such professionalism as well as have an informative, NO BS doctor that gets right to the point. He answered all questions and concerns and made my treatment absolutely smooth! I have been relieved of my dysphasia with my treatment and feel like a completely different human. I recommend Dr.Garapati to ANYONE."

"I was seen by Yulia, bless her heart she was very patient and informative. Although I feel sure she had other patients to see she did not rush, took her time, answered all my questions and explained the procedure, and the process. I would definitely recommend any one who needs this specific help see this young woman."

"Updated 9/28/21 After my review, I received a call from the office and was given great information about my health. Then on Monday, I received a second call from the provider to give me more information and answer my questions, to help me understand my diagnosis. This morning, I received a call from the doctor, who went over my health concerns and a plan for treatment, he also explained why my first call was not immediately returned. I feel the provider has rectified my concerns and am satisfied with their responses. Asked for a callback from provider. No call back yet. Waiting 2 days"

"Dr. Pradeep Kumar is very knowledgeable, practical, and straight to the point- in a really good way. I was told by a different doctor that I needed a surgery for an issue I had, he told me that it was unnecessary and ended up treating the problem differently, in. much more practical way. I really appreciate his honesty. Seeing a specialist is never a cheap option, especially if you are like me, paying out of pocket, however, visiting Dr. Kumar ended up saving me much more money, time, and stress, in the long term."

"Julia & Dr. Hsu is thorough in listening to all my concerns. They are in tune with the details of my medical history as well as they are kind & patient. The front desk is also patient, understanding & kind. My recent visit was with Julia, RN,C.N.S. She was excellent in going beyond to further exam me on the puzzling symptoms l experienced. Thank you Austin Gastroenterology! Especially for this location, I no longer have to stress over the travel into the congested traffic of central Austin."

"I had the very best visit with Yulia Lyuboslavsky at the Eiger Rd. location. She is Dr. Hsu’s PA. Yulia took the time I needed to talk about my colonoscopy that I would be doing soon, and several other concerns that I had. She was as sweet as can be and very knowledgeable. I found her to be genuinely concerned and professional. I liked her so much! I wouldn’t hesitate to tell anyone to go and see her; Matter of fact when I got home I called my best friend and told her all about her and that she and Dr. Hsu would be the best people to see. I’m so very thankful that I was referred to them. I have to say that the staff was so wonderful! They hit the jackpot with these great young ladies. Nothing but the best visit I have had anywhere in a long time. Best wishes and many thanks to Austin Gastroenterology!!!!"
