If You're in Pain go Elsewhere

After leaving the emergency room with extreme stomach pain I was referred to Dr. Yalam to take a look. I was in constant pain that went through my stomach to my back and could barely eat a bowl of cereal a day. Dr. Yalam scheduled me for surgery but wouldn’t do anything for the pain I felt. Over a 1 week period I lost 13 pounds and visited the emergency room multiple times. Dr. Yalam and his office couldn’t care less about the pain I was in or the extreme weight loss. This was reported up to Arizona Digestive Health but they didn’t seem to care since by then I had gone through the full procedure. Don’t walk, run away from this doctor!

NTn-professional JERK

After a colonoscopy by Yalam, he comes over to myself and my wife, his face frozen in anger, and proclaims that "I was the worst patient he had experienced". After three pronouncements that I was the worst, as an afterthought as he walked away, he says "I found no cancer and continue on his way.So while under anesthesia, I was the worst!This man is beyond words; he is devoid of professionalism. Today I wonder if he left "foreign objects" in my body while performing his "onerous"task. Beyond a genuine jerk! Have zero faith in this jerk as a man and less minus as a doctor.

After several different general medicine doctors, 2 years of doctoring at Mayo Clinic, no one could find out what was wrong(approx 8 years) Dr. Yalam performed an endoscopy and found out immediately what was wrong. Thank you! My exploratory procedure was done on a Friday and was called in the following Monday for the same day appt. He is very professional and "to the point".

My experience with the office staff was excellent. Everyone was courteous and prompt. I had none of the issues described by other reviewers.I also have no complaints against Dr Yalam and would see him again for any future GI problems.
