I remain unconvinced that the diagnosis presented is the correct explanation for my symptoms. I’m surprised there have been no further tests and am therefore seeking a second opinion

Very pleased with this visit! The doctor took plenty of time to explain suggested procedures. I was especially pleased that rather than have me wait in pain for weeks, he wanted to get through the diagnostic procedures and get me closerto relief as quickly as possible. The staff was very thorough and open as well. I had a lot of questions, and left there with every one answered.

Wait time was too long, and my blood pressure was up, I almost walked out. I think the doctor was very busy with other patients before me.

Visit with Dr. Dwivedi was not the issue. Patients are asked to be in the office 30 minutes prior to the appt. Why is that necessary if there are no changes for address, medications, insurance? If you arrive 30 minutes early,then wait another 30 minutes before you are called into the back and then after vitals are taken, the wait is another 15 -20 minutes. This is not just too long, it's unreasonably long. Perhaps if the doctors would not require patient scheduling to stack appointments/overlap appointments, then perhaps we could see the doctor within 5-10 minutes of the scheduled appointment. Maybe if patients would send a bill to the Gastro Associates for the time they sit and wait until they are finally called, that might help. My time and other patients time is valuable to us as the time is to the doctors. I could submit a bill for 1 hour of my time.$80 and see what kind of a response I'd get. My best guess is that I'd receive a letter of apology..............that's it.

I have seen Dr. Dwivedi several times and he seems to be a very nice and smart doctor. However, he and his staff have let me down too many times so I have had to move on. He/his staff NEVER calledwith any test results and I would spend weeks calling in only to have the nurse tell me that the results were in but he needed to review them first before she could tell me anything. For just one example, he knew I had Celiac Disease for 3 months (yes, literally over three months!) before I found out. Oh, and the way I found out was that the woman who handles their insurance claims called me to get my OK on doing another procedure due to my newly diagnosed Celiac Disease. If she wouldn't have called to be sure they could get paid I might still not know. Absolutely ridiculous. (If you are Celiac, run away! He doesn't know what an HLA type is or any of the basics on how to treat Celiac Disease.) Anyway, to sum up - he's a really nice guy but please do not use him or (based on the staff) any other doctors at Gastro Consultants of SA.

First visit and I'm impressed. Dr. D answered all of my questions, gave me all of the facts -- both positive and negative -- and spelled out all of the facts that he needed to check out before we could proceedwith a surgical procedure. Talked to me in a very matter-of-fact manner, making sure that I understood all of the facts.
