It was as pleasant an experience as you can get with this sort of painless procedure by Dr Prithvi. I went for my first ever colonoscopy & endoscopy and was very nervous, the fact that Dr Prtihvi was so friendly and caring put me at ease . One week prior to the procedure , Dr Prithvi was super kind and took time to explain on sedation procedure and answered all my questions. Once I was on my side (my head on a soft pillow no less), and nurse hooked up the IV ,when I woke up in the recovery room and felt great, like I had taken a pleasant nap. I was super impressed by how comfortable, painless the entire procedure had been. Highly recommend Dr Prithvi, a great doctor, very kind with excellent patient care. Dr Prtihvi is not only a great Doctor, I would venture to say that she falls into the Top 1% of those physicians/surgeons that communicates extremely well and has a heart! Cant thank enough to Dr Prithvi.
