I had a great experience with GI Associates, and particularly with Dr Kularatna. I was overdue for my first colonoscopy by many years. I've been very healthy, so had no Dr to refer me to a GI in Southern MD. Looked online for reviews and decided to call GI Associates. They scheduled me for a preliminary appointment within a couple of days. At the office, everyone was pleasant and helpful, and I didn't have to wait for very long. Dr Kularatna was professional and informative, and I didn't feel rushed. The procedure was scheduled for the next week at the clinic right next door to GI Associates. At the end of my appointment I received a sheet with very clear instructions for the overnight prep for the colonoscopy. I found the inexpensive prep medications (Ducolax and Magnesium Citrate) at the Giant Food in Waldorf. The night before was no fun, but was easier than I had expected and feared. At the clinic, I again didn't have to wait long and everyone was very friendly, pleasant, and professional, especially the nurse that prepped me. I was introduced to the anaesthesiologist, and then Dr Kularatna came in to see how I was feeling and to say that the procedure would start very soon. In just a few moments she set me at ease. When I woke up, I felt fine although groggy. They had already gone over postop care with my son but also provided a postop instruction sheet and gave me the preliminary results of the procedure. I had absolutely no problems at all, no soreness or nausea. I slept at home most of the rest of the day, so I missed a call from the clinic a few hours later asking me to let them know how I felt. I felt cared for as an individual and was well-informed through the whole process.
