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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.
