June 2016
(I wanted an ASAP appt.) A new provider for me due to a 2 month wait period _____ my Gastroenterologist of 3 years. I now intend to switch my provider to Dr. Venu.

December 2015
I liked he had a strategy plan and wrote it down for me to have to aid in making health decisions. He seemed like he knew what he was doing.

December 2015
First time visit felt right at ease.

September 2015
Provider spent time with me in office, but 1st visit most of his time was looking up Rx & pharmacies (true). Second visit I waited a long time, then his responses to my questions & concerns were superficial. Provider did not explain much of anything, even in response to my questions I am an educated person.
