For whatever reason I wasn’t told it wouldn’t be an office appointment until the last minute. Even he was confused about the change since he was in the office, which is only two blocks from my home. Yet, even on the phone I found he was patient and made a sincere effort to understand my medical issues.

Dr. Nimmagadda has been my GI physician for decades. Dr. N. is the consumate professional. His clinical expertise along with his many years of experience allows him to communicate with his patients in a very clear and understandable way. He also weaves the latest research findings into his explainations as appropriate giving a patient the confidence that he/she is receiving the best standard of care. Dr. N. has a very personal and supportive way of communicating with his patients and I find him to be a physician who truly listens. He is also very prepared every time you meet with him in terms of your past medical history as well as any previous discussions he has had with you previously. He remembers you as a unique person. As a result of my personal experience with Dr. N, I have felt very comfortable through the years recommending him to several of my friends and colleagues. Lastly, as a medical professional for 53 years, I have always appreciated his immaculate personal appearance as well as his excellent manners which are that of a true gentleman-something I truly value but don't see as often as I would like these days.
