Dr. Prakash was great! This was my first time visiting a GI doctor. I've had some issues for a while now but it's such a sensitive subject - I've been too embarrassed to talk to a doctor about it. I finally decided to see a doctor and chose Dr. Prakash based on her great reviews. And I'm SO glad I did. She was very easy to talk to and seemed genuinely concerned about my issues. She set up tests right away to help me figure out what's wrong and offered suggestions to help in the meantime. I've had other doctors who have just brushed off my concerns to get me out of their office. The staff at the front desk, as well as the technician who did my blood work were also very friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend Dr. Prakash and The Gastro Center of Maryland.
