I love Dr. Ganjhu. She's totally professional but also down to earth. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my colonoscopies.

As someone with bad experiences with several gastroenterologists in New York City I was worried to go in and meet Dr. Ganjhu, but she completely exceeded all expectations. She was professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She took the time toget a full history and listen to my concerns instead of just rushing through the appointment. She explained my condition to me thoroughly and went through all possible treatment options. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a gastroenterologist.

Dr. Ganjhu has no manners. I felt uncomfortable from the moment she walked in. She is not pleasant, doesnt' seem to care very much about her practice and actually helping others. I don't usually write reviews but she was very condescending and rude. I would never recommend this doctor.

she is a disgrace to the medical profession. does not touch you or examine you like she is superior to the rest of humanity. she is a disgrace to Osteopathy. she did not look at my blood work I brought fromrecent tests. would not look at my Ultrasound CD I brought. she laughed when I told her I GOOGLED the high ferritin my Primary was concerned about. very patronizing. does not care about patients or their problems. avoid her like the PLAGUE! I would not send my dog or cat to this woman. she has no empathy for patients.

She is very professional and more importantly kind. Most doctors seem very robotic now a days but she was attentive, which I'm immensely thankful for given the reason I went to see her. She even took the extra time to talkwith my pharmacist to make sure I got the Rx they covered, so sweet.

She has a terrible bedside manner. She did not treat me as though she had any concern for my health at all.. She didn't even attempt to fake it. While we were in the exam room together she stayed as faraway from me as was possible in the space and when it came time to actually examiner new, she barely made an effort to look at me. But she did offer up an inadequate diagnosis and suggest I see a different type of specialist. I would not recommend her to anyone unless you prefer your doctors to treat you like they would rather be anywhere else.

Lisa was extremely helpful in preparing me for my endoscopy, something I was very nervous about (despite it being a routine procedure). She made it seem easy, and I was pleased with how everything went. The only thing I'll say isthat I was not 100% sure what the results of my endoscopy were initially (until I came back for my annual physical several months later), and I wish that I had been given clearer instructions about determining the outcome of the endoscopy. The next time I need this type of procedure, I'll be sure to book a follow-up right away.

Dr. Ganjhu was great! She really took the time to listen to me and offer feedback. She really seemed to care. She was thorough with what she wanted to have done to me---which is surprising as this was my first visitwith her. What really made her stand out as GI doc is that she called me the next morning to see how I was doing and to relay my test result. I will definitely be seeing her again. Thank you, Dr. Ganjhu!

It was a waste of time. She ran some tests on me and made me go back (and pay again) just to tell me it was all good. She didn't answer any of my questions, gave me lines that sounded "canned"at best, didn't remember me or my case at all the second time I was there... Oh, and they outsourced my tests without telling me so I had to pay for those separately too. It ended up being highly dissatisfying, really a waste of time, and super expensive.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Ganjhu, even if she is one of the few female GI's in NYC. She was not very empathetic when I was discussing personal symptoms, nor did she explain treatment options or potential causes in detail. Nophysical exam, condescending attitude and no proper review of my blood work. I was left feeling disappointed and awkward. Front desk staff also made a copay error; I'll be sprinting back to my old GI!

Overall, this doctor seemed very nice and her office staff were amazing. I liked that Dr. Ganjhu took a very detailed history and I did not feel rushed. I know that I have read a lot and can be a difficultpatient and I was happy that she did discuss treatment options with me. She listened to my concerns. However, I didn't feel like she was able to give in-depth answers to all my questions. She also did not physically examine me and relied solely on my medical history and past diagnosis to prescribe treatment. I have not decided if I would see her again as it did not seem she had in-depth knowledge on my specific condition (however that is true for almost every GI I have gone to). As far as accessibility, she did offer that I could call her with questions. My sense is that she is a great doctor but maybe not right for me.
