    How was your appointment with Dr. Appasamy?

    Dec 24, 2019
    RAGUNATH APPASAMY, M.D., Ph.D.: OUTSTANDING and UNEQUIVOCALLY the BEST!! . . . . . As a long-time patient, I love and respect Dr. Appasamy!!! . . . . He is HIGHLY educated and EXCELS in his knowledge and experience in the field of gastroenterology. To add to his desired and impressive credentials, he is a physician where a patent is not merely “a number.” Dr. Appasamy KNOWS his patients and TAKES HIS TIME with his patients to address their concerns and needs. He is thorough and VERY conscientious!!! Furthermore, he has a way about him that is endearing and where he has earned very bit of respect due him, as he also respects his patients. He also has an excellent personality! . . . . When my other gastroenterologist retired, I asked my PCP—another physician whom I love and respect—for a referral. Thank goodness the ONLY specialist he recommended was Dr. Ragunath Appasamy!!! . . . . . I HIGHLY recommend RAGUNATH APPASAMY, M.D., Ph.D.!!!
