"This was my initial experience with this practice after moving to San Marcos. The office staff were very efficient, professional, thorough and genuinely kind, adding a bit of humor to an otherwise much-avoided procedure. Dr. Gagneja actually held my hand as I drifted off to twilight sleep, a first for me. I never felt like a number moving along on an assembly line. I will gladly recommend this practice to my friends and family. Thank you!"

"The office staff at Dr. Gagneja are always polite and professional. I have been under his care for 4 years and following his treatment plan during this period. I am blessed to be in his care and my quality of life has improved dramatically. I admire his professionalism and bedside manner. In my opinion he is first class in knowledge, treatment and follow up. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer family members to his office."

"I recently visited Dr Garapati for some reflux issues. I can honestly say that I have never been to a more organized and well-run office. I used to work as a back office medical assistant, so I’ve seen a lot of Dr. offices. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and Dr Garapati is top-notch. I had both an endoscopy and colonoscopy on the same day. (I used to assist with these procedures, so I knew the drill.) First off, the prep was not bad at all. It’s a mild colon cleanse and a great temporary diet. 😊 The nurses in the pre-op and procedure room and recovery were all SUPER nice. After waking from anesthesia, I could not tell I had either procedure. No pain/discomfort at all. Had there not been pictures, I wouldn’t have known I even had them! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Austin Gastro and Dr Garapati."

"before I started this process with gastroenterology and Dr. Emmett, I researched thoroughly on the web. I needed to find someone to do my colonoscopy. I didn’t want just anyone. I wanted someone that would take time and explain all of the situation and circumstance to me. I just moved from Washington state and had a great Gastroenterologist up there. Dr. Emmett met or exceeded all of my expectations. I still am not excited about getting a colonoscopy but I know that I will be in good hands."

But as soon as he walked it he gave me some options on what to do and had me pick whatever I was most comfortable with, putting my mind at ease . He is still helping me through all the steps and contacting the office for more on going problems was easy and quick. It’s always comforting knowing they are helping you every step of the way!"

"I love the doctor and the Kyle office. It’s easy to get to and free parking. The 32 Street office is hard to get to and they charge for parking. I hate going to that office. It’s very hard to find a place to park and a long walk to the elevator and then same thing to get out. I was charged $4 just to park for office visit. Please change back to St. David’s south Hospital for procedures. The Hospital is easy to get to and doesn’t charge for parking and the staff is much nicer!"

"Was referred to this office, it is a specialist so that is why getting the appointment was hard. No fault of the office or doctor-- but the office staff still worked to get me in as quick as they could based on the concerns from my primary. The portal made the preparation paperwork side easy. My lab results were also published same day so I could compare to previous results, I liked this feature alot. Check in on day of appt was simple, finding office was easy. Wait time was less than 10 mins in lobby, double for actual doctor but not too bad thanks to the interactive tablet in the exam rooms. I watched some little medical videos on procedures and then the doc was in. Dr Emmett himself was great as well as his nurse. The doctor let me ramble about all the things my primary had me freaked out about but he reassured me I wasn't dying and got me set up for the tests I needed and we have a treatment plan. Excellent provider and I would recommend him highly to anyone needing this level of gastro care."
