Great doctor. However, front desk people are impossible to reach out to. They just put you on hold the whole time, or will pick up and not speak to you while you can hear them lounging around talking about dunkin donut. LOL.

Dr. Chattoo is a knowledgeable and experienced doctor. However, the office staff is overwhelmed and unresponsive to most inquiries. There have been multiple occasions the past year that the Fulton st office staff was supposed to provide meimportant information or respond to insurance company with information in which they did not do so without having to contact them numerous times. Wait times are usually about 60-70 minutes from my personal experience.

I waited an hour and a half and then when I finally saw the doctor he was distracted. He kept checking his phone and for a short while I was telling him my symptoms he was texting, clearly not listening tome. I felt like I wasted my time waiting for someone who had no interest in listening to my health issues.

Dr. Chattoo listened to my concerns and was very thorough in addressing them. He explained the purpose of each medical procedure and the results he was expecting. The office was another story. They could not find my appointment in their system.After I showed her my ZocDoc appointment, that's when she admitted she had blocked ZocDoc. She did not tell me and I did not ask why ZocDoc had been blocked. But that explains why I never received a phone call from Dr. Chattit's office. She said I could make future appointments through ZocDoc and I will. I waited about 45 minutes before I saw the Doctor. I will call next time before arriving.

I was the first patient of the day and the doctor was 45 minutes late. After the visit his reception tentatively scheduled a date for a procedure in order to get it approved with my insurance but didnt tell me theinsurance company would cover it until the day before the procedure. I told her i could not make the appointment and was told I have to pay a $200 cancellation fee since it is less than 48 hours. We ended up settling the discrepency but I do not plan on returning.

This doctor is terrific and ordered a buncha tests to exclude things that a previous GI doctor really just phoned it in on. I put three stars for bedside manner because it said that was satisfactory. His bedside manner was totallyfine. He was direct and straightforward which i appreciated although not coddling (which I feel is often unhelpful). No wait. Really a good operation he has here and it is very thorough. Srsly I went to a different doctor before and he was really awesome as a person but I felt more listened to w Dr Chattoo and get more exclusionary testing.

Mr. Chattoo did a great job investigating the cause my symptoms, he also did not hesitate to consult another specialist for tropical diseases. Finally, the parasite, which I aquired during a longer stay in India, could be eliminated with his help, thank you, Sir.

I liked him; he has good manners...I was able to talk about my concerns. However, like most ENT and Gastroenterologist, they are uncertain as to why my throat makes this sound when I swallow my saliva. They think I may bedoing it unintentionally, but it just happens. I am trying to figure out why ……………

When I went to Dr Chattoo with a minor medical concern, he recommended a blood test to see if an upper endoscopy was necessary. The test came back negative, so he did it again to confirm. Even though both tests cameback negative, his nurse called and said he still recommended an upper endoscopy. I asked why, but he never came to the phone nor returned my calls. Why would I see a doctor who recommends invasive and expensive procedures, yet won't even take a phone call to explain why?

While the Dr. himself would get top rating from me, his staff needs training on professionalism and etiquette. The ladies at the front desk do NOT honor patient privacy AT ALL, asking patient information from their desk with patients sittingacross the room in the waiting area. I know everyone is entitled to making mistakes but the wrong notes were attached to my file. I had a discrepancy with my insurance verification. I was incorrectly told that I was not fully covered for a test, and instead of someone checking I called my insurance to verify it myself. When one of the assistants behind the desk was telling me the procedure code another rudely told her not to tell me. Not that anyone else was going to verify for me. When the technician took my blood, I bled like never before! All over my dress, on the floor etc. She apologized profusely and it wasn't her fault but by this time I was beyond annoyed with this visit. Dr. Chattoo was recommended to me with high praises by a friend whom I respect, otherwise I'd have gone elsewhere. I hope the ladies at the front desk learn some bedside manner and more importantly professionalism.

I wasn't a fan of this doctor at all. My appointment was an hour behind and he didn't apologize for the wait. Even once I got in to be examined, he was busy on the computer. As I explained my symptoms,I got barely any eye contact, or acknowledgement. The physical exam took about 3 minutes, after which he explained treatment, which was straight forward, and he even offered to "dumb it down" for me, which I thought was very rude. I won't be returning to that doctor!

Office is in sketchy building. Office decorated with cheap ikea furniture. Receptionist tried to charge me $5 for using my flex spending card. When I questioned this she implied that I didn't have enough money to pay the $5 and theywould wait for me to go to the ATM. How insulting. I'm a financial controller for a tech start up. Apparently the office doesn't want my business nor my recommendation. To walk away, run away from this doctor.

Dr chatoo was nice enough in terms of bedside manner but he deliberately referred me to out of network anesthesiologist (unbeknownst to me) and they then tried to charge me a ridiculous amount. They were very quick to offer to settlewhich to me smelled like a setup. This whole process just didn't feel like it was handled professionally. I frankly felt like I got swindled

The doctor is amazing but the staff is incompetent and inconsiderate. I have been notified that I would receive a call a week before a procedure about insurance and location, which did not happen. I have called the office five timesjust to hear that the procedure was RESCHEDULED without my knowledge. Key example of poor communication in US healthcare today. I am being put on hold for thirty minutes now as I type this.
