Dr Gupta was the first dr to actually listen to me. He didn't look at me and see someone who just needed to lose weight, he saw someone whose life was being made miserable by their symptoms. He did several tests, including blood tests, stool tests, endoscopy, and colonoscopy. After all that he diagnosed me with microscopic colitis. After 15 years of not being listened to, being told to lose weight, being told to eat better and excersice more, someone finally figured out that there was really something wrong with me. I've seen both Dr Gupta and his physicians assistant whose name I can't remember right now, and they are both excellent. If you are looking for great bedside manner, then Dr Gupta may not be the doctor for you, however this is really the only area I felt I could not rate 5 stars. He doesn't sit and talk a lot, he gets straight to the point and does what needs to be done. He does listen, however he doesn't spend a lot of time talking. Overall he and his physicians assistant have been wonderful.
