I have Diverticulosis as a result of radiation for prostate cancer. It became very bad to the point that I was bleeding for 9 months. I had to have 4 units of blood os a result. I had checked with 2 other Doctors. The results were the same, the bleeding will stop in about a year,but that was not going to be the case. While in the hospital receiving blood, Dr Krishnan was assigned to my case and that was a God Send. He immediately knew the problem and treatment. He treated me with argon plasma coagulation. I have had two treatments thus far with outstanding results. I may require another in the future. I have complete confidence in Dr Krishnan and his expertise. I would probably still be bleeding or dead if I hadn't met Dr Krishnan. I greatly appreciate his professionalism and knowledge very much. I would highly recommend him at any time.
