Specialties

Dr. Kanishka Bhattacharya has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One of the Best!

Excellent! I have had 3 procedures done by this doctor and I feel confident and very comfortablewith his techniques. I can see where he might not have a lot of extra time for chatting as he has a busy unit for his colon procedures. His overall competency is more important to me.

Very bright and personable. Technically one of the best. Busy, as they all are, and feels rushed at times, but I think as a function of his work environment. I feel like if he could, he wouldn't rush .

not very caring

I did not find Dr. Bhattacharya to be at all empathetic and he was not very good at listening to me, both of which I find very important in a doctor.
