Verified Patient Reviews
She's friendly, informative, kind, and answers questions.
Great doctor very professional
The office was very clean the staff was friendly, and the doctor did not rush to get out of the room not only did she take the time to explain about my up coming procedure , she also answered all my questions
Wait time was 45 min, but that was expected from other reviewers. Another patient in the room said he had been waiting an hour. I brought a book. Dr Gopal is very professional, no nonsense type. She seemed very knowledgeable and was willing to work with me to find out what was causing my stomach symptoms. Didn't seem to be too crazy about ordering diagnostics and wasn't dismissive of my own thoughts on the matter. The rest of the staff was all very pleasant.
The entire staff was very courteous and professional. Everything was clearly explained concerning my procedure.
Just wanted to say thank you Dr. Gopal and Dr. Harris for changing my daughter feeding tube and listening to me on what exactly what my daughter needed. You all just don't know how much you helped me and my daughter. Love you all for that. I have to say a big thank you to Dr. Gopal nurse assistant Lakeisha you was so helpful and understanding of what type of feeding tube that I wanted for my daughter. You went above and beyond of making sure I got what I wanted and the job was done. We need more staff and Doctors like you all to be more understanding on what parents need and want for their child, (in my case my daughter is disabled). You all have a new patient now and we will continue to come to y'all for my daughter needs especially for her feeding tube. She is doing well with her new mini one button and I'm loving it. May God continue to Bless you all.
She was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Patient as this was my first time at the center.
I chose Dr. Gopal for insurance reasons and so far I am very pleased with Dr. Gopal and her staff. I did not have to wait and she was friendly and informative. I had to wait about 3 weeks for an appointment which isn't too bad. Location is good and the office is modern and inviting.
I was seen by the front desk staff right away; however, I was not visited by the doctor until about 45 minutes later.
Very detailed and precise. She was very interested, concerned and understanding to your medicals needs. You knew at that point, her attention was only on you and your needs. Very pleased with entire visit.
The wait was longer than usual but Dr. Gopal is an excellent doctor.
Very effecient, smart and friendly Doctor.
Dr. Gopal was thorough and she listened to my concerns. She had good bedside manners and made sure that she collected all of the data needed for me to have a complete visit. She left no stone unturned.
I think she was very concerned about my health and well being. She asked a lot of questions about my last and present health issues. Gave some good insight as to what is happening and what can happen and what our plan of treatment was.
She is wonderful
Dr Gopal is very thorough and I left with only one question regarding my treatment. I'm waiting for s response and everything will be ok.
This appointment went without a hitch. And the fastest wait I have ever experienced. Very great full
I don't get it, I arrived at 9:15a.m and didn't leave until 11:45. Too long. So I guess you pay to wait. The staff was great.
I really appreciated her kindness and concern. She patiently addressed all my concerns and questions, even the unsound questions. I was reluctant about seeing a new person;however, her knowledge and sureness about her profession eased my discomfort. I had a great appointment and I am looking forward to my followup with her.
V.good, professional, understanding, I feel her assumption about diagnosis with symptom was accurate with further investigation.
Every thing was just fine.
Very good, she is wonderful!
Very personable and reassuring tone. Took the time to fully answer questions. Also had an opportunity to meet and work with the office staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Pleasant, professional, satisfactory.
she was very polite and exam & talk about what she was going to do was very please with her
I thought Dr. Gopal was thorough and explain what I needed to know.
Finally a doctor who isn't too busy being important. She took time to answer every question with genuine care and concern. Even during those scared moments, she encouraged me to hang in there.
Waited TOO long.
My visit today was only a consult for a routine colonoscopy, but I was impressed with the staff and the ease with which I was able to make an appointment. Dr. Gopal even explained to me how the billing would be done and what to do if the procedure was not billed correctly. I really appreciated this information as this is a routine procedure and should be covered but health insurance has become ridiculously complicated. I ranked Dr. Gopal as "probably recommend" until after I have the actual procedure but so far so good!
She's honest and open and that's a hard thing to find in anyone but especially and now due to so much litigation concerns, doctors...bless their hardworking hearts. I really liked her in every way, her nurse staff as well... Thank you for your asking my opinion and your attention to details.
Dr. Gopal is very thorough and has a very reassuring manner.
I really liked Dr. Gopal! Her office is very pretty and the seating is comfortable. The staff was very nice. The dr. is personable and seemed to really care about my condition. She diagnosed the true problem without having to perform the endoscopy that day and I'm feeling much better now. I highly recommend her!
I love that she asks questions to see what's going on in my body. She seems very concerned and cautious before subscribing prescriptions. I left feeling very confident that my symptoms would subside.
So far good, Treatment is good.
Wait time was too long. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time .Appt. was 1:45 wasn't seen to 2:45. . Did online medical history, but it was not received according to receptionist. Assistant named 'Mee Mee, , I think was her name, was excellent
I arrived at 9:05 am, 10 minutes before my 9:15am appointment. It was 3 minutes until 10am when I was called by the nurse and 10:05 when I saw Dr. Gopal. This wait time of an hour is unacceptable. I make early in the am appointments so this kind of wait will not happen, but unfortunately it happened anyway. I really like Dr. Gopal, but if this happens again, I'm through with this practice.
My appointment with Ms. Kavitha was great but the front office staff could have been a bit more professional.
Great sense of humor! Makes you feel comfortable
So happy that Dr. Gopal is my doctor!
She takes her time with you and explains everything very well. I felt comfortable with her knowledge of her specialty and would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a good gastroenterologist.
She is nice, she explained everything about my situation.
I was very impressed with my visit today. She explained my treatment plan and scheduled my necessary appointments. Job well done.
She took her time to explain and she listened to me. She was friendly and warm. Everyone in the office was just extremely wonderful. Great team.
Dr. Gopal is very detailed oriented. She asks many questions while patiently noting the patient's answers. She provides a list of alternatives for possible treatment.
I can tell she loves what she does, I feel that I can trust Doctor Gopal, she will go far in her career there's know doubt in my mind. She is the real deal...
I had pretty bad experience. Dr. Kavita Gopal barely gave me a min or two during my office visit. She didn't ask any question about my symptoms to understand it correctly, she didn't explained anything about how to diagnose my symptoms she just told about colonoscopy and what to do during visit of the colonoscopy and when I can schedule and how to schedule. She seemed more interested in scheduling the colonoscopy then curing my disease or listening about my situation. Office staff is also very rude and not helpful. Even though I called them and scheduled an appointment I had to wait more then 45 mins.
My appointment was at 2:25. I literally didn't see the doctor until around 4 pm!!! There is NO EXCUSE for this!!! And the doctor never apologized. The medical assistant did apologize but it should have come from the doctor. Now on a positive note, the doctor seemed nice, but I couldn't get past the ridiculous wait! Uggggghhhhh
Dr Gopal was very warm and comforting, and at the same time very professional. There wasn't much questions to ask her, because she was so thorough and her staff compliments her, they were all great
They just want the money and do not seem to care about your health.
Very nice and professional.
I've seen her before. Felt very comfortable with her. She was very thorough when explaining the proceedure.
Very educational and helpful staff. I am grateful the professions as this location.
Professional Focused, with a good helpful staff. All blood work was completed in the office and the nursing and laboratory staff were pleasant and thorough.
I liked her. She was quiet and patient. I did not feel like she had an allotted amount of time for me. She listened and then listed a course of treatment.
She let me know why she was running behind which I very much appreciated. She looked me straight in the eye as I was talking and asking her questions, very attentative.
Love that she takes the time to listen to me.
Great bed side manner. I felt very comfortable and at ease.
Her staff is efficient, professional, kind & friendly, as is Dr. Gopal. I very much appreciated the expert proficiency of the person taking my blood samples.
They fit my appointment in last minute and said it might be a bit of a wait. I told them I was fine with that and just appreciated that they would fit me in. I was ready to sit for the long haul, but when I got there I ended up only waiting 10 minutes and all the staff was very friendly. Dr Gopal came into my room quickly and spent a good amount of time talking through my symptoms with me. She seemed very knowlegable and caring. So first visit was great and I'll definitely go back!
very personable and knowledgeable about my medical problem, took my past history and current concerns and together a reasonable care plan was established
Very professionally, Determined to get to the problem and understanding.
Dr. Kavitha Gopal, made me feel as though I was a patient for a very long time. I'm new to the State of Georgia and things are very different here. But I felt very comfortable with Dr. Gopal and even if I had to wait a little, I didn't mind. I would recommend others to her. my appointment date was 6/16/2015.
Even with the long wait today, I was still impress with Dr. Gopal's professional attitude and her concern for my condition.
Dr Gopal is competent without even the slightest air of arrogance. I have struggled for 10+ years with digestive challenges that at some points it was debilitating. After moving to the Atlanta area I needed to find new doctors. Dr. Gopal came with high recommendation in an emergency reference. On a holiday weekend Dr Gopal made time to see me immediately. Her staff is wonderful and efficient. Dr Gopal is Unbelievable as her competency is superior as she takes her time addressing and explaining every detail of patient issues. She listens intently and doesn't rush patients as they explain their issue and then she addresses a medical approach/solution that you both can agree with.
The doctor was very professional and knowledgeable, but the practice as a whole needs improvement. My wait time has as always been at least an hour to be seen & another 30 mins waiting for the doctor. Also, they never return any messages.
My visit was very pleasant.
I thought something was wrong because of the pain I was experiencing but Dr Gopal assured me that it was muscular. That was a relief.
Dr. Gopal was very professional and informative. The cost of having an EDG done at the facility is just a little too pricy. Had Dr. Gopal been able to perform the procedure at Northside Hospital I would have proceded.
She was very professional and took her time to review the previous records that i have. She did not order any unnecessary test.
My visit went well. She explained the next steps to ensure I was kept abreast of my treatment.
I thought she was very attentive. She explained things at a level that made it easy to understand.
Although there was a short wait, it was due to the short staffing of the front office. Dr. Gopal came out offering to assist the staff to shorten the wait time and was readily waiting on me when I was placed in the room.
The Dr was the average, mostly wanted to over talk you besides listening to your problems. The wait time was long from the waiting area to the examination room. The office is quite upscale, although some front desk staff appeared to be rude when asked about copay's and benefits for your insurance. This practice will want your deductible be paid in full before any procedure, even if your experiences issues better off in the ER.
Rewarding as usual.
Dr. Gopal is a great physician! She really takes her time and is very thorough with her examinations. Whenever I have a physical ailment, she orders the proper tests and resolves my issues. I will definitely recommend her to anyone that needs a good gastroenterologist.
Excellent visit. It was my first trip and Doctor Gopal made me very comfortable about the exam. She was very helpful with the questions I asked of her. Thumbs up.
It was detailed, future plan put in place for my condition.
The office staff is amazing. They are organized to a T. Dr. Gopal was concise, thorough, personable and very easy to communicate with. I am confident that I am in good hands all the way around. I have never had a more pleasurable appointment. I was truly impressed by the entire office. Thank you.
My visit was very warm and personal. The Dr. was very attentive and I didn't feel rushed.
Dr. Gopal is very pleasant and knowledgeable about her area of expertise, as well as outside her specialty. My prior doctor had conducted an endoscopy on me 5 years ago, and I never got the results until Dr. Gopal personally called me to tell me the results! I've never had a doctor personally call me about my medical results before!
Dr. Gopal was great! She asked questions and she listened to me.
This was my first time meeting Dr. Gopal. After introducing ourselves, she got right down to reviewing my medical information found on her laptop. She discussed how the upcoming colonoscopy procedure would take place, even though this would be my 3rd procedure. Dr. Gopal reviewed the findings from my prior colonoscopies and discussed what medications I should stop taking prior to the procedure. Dr. Gopal agreed that the procedure should not be performed until after my 3-year window of when the last colonoscopy was performed, on 10/14/11. Lastly, Dr. Gopal understood when I requested that Dr. Shirley Harris perform my 3rd procedure, since she also performed the first two. All in all, I had a very good consultation with Dr. Gopal!
I am excited to have Dr. Gopal as my Gastro professional. She is professional, knowledgeable and above all, she listens. Her care has been excellent. The overall experience in this office each time I visit is very positive.
She, was really nice.
Overall, this visit was pretty standard. The office was easy to find, clean and orderly. The office staff was extremely friendly, and made me feel welcomed. They were very professional as well. Dr. Gopal listened to my concerns and ensured me that she would help me find some resolution. I would definitely recommend.
Unable to get a read on this doctor. She is very matter of fact and courteous but will not make any suggestions or references to other services/doctors.
I was extremely pleased. She was thorough and quite easy to talk with.
It was a very pleasant visit.
I just left the military and was tired of being referred to doctors without any say in the matter. I researched Dr Gopal and liked what I read. I informed my insurance company that this was the provider I wanted to see. From the moment I've met Dr. Gopal it's been smooth sailing. She's very thorough, kind, a great listener, intelligent and straight to the point. We've accomplished more in 3wks than I have in the last 3yrs with previous doctors.
It was very nice, everyone was friendly great service!
She was friendly and willing to listen. She advised me of plans to help improve my situation. She did not make me feel that she in a rush. She was very pleasant easy to talk to. I look forward to seeing her in 4 weeks.
It was a pretty good visit the got straight to the point.
