"Dr. Pathikonda and his Team are amazing! After struggling with issues for as long as I can remember, Dr. Pathikonda told me on my first visit not to worry and that we would get this figured out. He was very kind and listened to my issues, giving me samples of several medications to see what worked best for my problems. We have started some testing, and I feel confident he will get to the root of the problem. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family. He was even kind enough on my first visit to walk me out of the back office to the waiting room, all while still casually talking. He makes you feel important, listened to, and comfortable at all times."

He went the extra mile to ensure I was able to get the best medication for my illness, and when I needed to be referred to a specialist surgeon, he also intervened to help explain my situation in a manner that literally saved me months in waiting for a surgery schedule. Superb doctor with a competent, responsive, and helpful staff (Stephanie)."

5.0 Review from C.B. Source: Google Mar 06 2022

"Would definitely recommend Dr. Pathikonda, and the nurses are great too. You can tell they actually care about you and they don’t just treat you like a number, and they listen to all your questions and concerns. Dr. Pathikonda is also a very genuine, authentic person, and will actually take you seriously. I have unspecified esophageal dysmotility, and most of my past doctors didn’t really take much time trying to understand my condition, and rarely took my situation seriously, even though my symptoms were severe. My symptoms and condition is rare, so it’s taken some time to figure out what to do and who to go to, but I’m grateful I found Dr. Pathikonda. Some of my past doctors rushed me, and one even insinuated that I was psychotic or a hypochondriac, and I felt hopeless and like I was burden, but with Dr. Pathikonda, I felt heard and understood, and I’m confident him and his team will be able to help me with my condition."

"Dr. Pathikonda has been one of the most amazing Doctor's I've ever had. His team and him are so kind and always welcoming. Dr. Pathikonda listens careful to what you say and what your concerns are, or your opinion. If you've done research he'll listen to that too. He always comes up with the best option he can think of and seems to genuinely care about his patients. This isn't just a paycheck to him it is really something he enjoys doing and you can tell. I would recommend him to anyone who needed GI help without a second thought. In fact I actually have. He's been amazing and has helped me so much. I came in with severe abdominal pain, unable to eat without doubling over and he helped take care of it really quick when none of my other doctor's had an answer. And he always responds to phone calls in a timely manor. Thank you Dr. Pathikonda!!! You and your team have been amazing and done so much for me."
