"Dr. Godambe is professional, knowledgeable, and talented. She actually listens to you and doesn’t put you in a box based on your age, gender, previous history. As a physically fit 25 year old, I don’t think she expected to see a 6 cm polyp in my sigmoid colon. But she was able to remove ALL of it during my colonoscopy! She took the time to communicate the pathology results even when she said was on a vacation, and she actually thanked me for being proactive about my health. We were both so thrilled that we caught it early— she cares about the whole picture of your health and it’s obvious she loves what she does for a living."

"I recently had my first appointment with Dr Godambe. I was immediately put at ease when she met with me. I can’t believe how nice she was! I’ve never had a colonoscopy before and I’m decades overdue because I’ve been afraid of getting one done. She didn’t “scold” me for avoiding the procedure. She was really knowledgeable about the procedure and answered all of my questions-even the “immature” ones-kindly and intelligently and in a way I could understand. We talked about the procedure and the different choices to take the medicine before the colonoscopy. I am so glad I got Dr. Godambe assigned to be my doctor!"

"Dr. Godambe is very informative, a good listener, and provides a great sense of authentic care to your personal situation. Dr. Godambe goes beyond just the basics and treats your whole self. She takes interest in who you are beyond just another patient or another paying customer. The style of doctor of yesteryear, who knew the person. See for yourself, you will not go wrong. The reviews are correct, she's that good. Check Dr. Godambe out first. If you had a bad experience with someone else, she will prove with ease how a great doctor should be."

"Dr. Godambe is awesome , caring and has great bedside matters. She talked to me before the procedure, after the procedure and also called my husband to make sure we were all on the same page( just in case I was still loopy😂). The nurses were great too and gentle. I was really cold and blood pressure was low and they never left me alone , kept the Dr informed and kept giving me warm blankets. Oh how I love those warm blankets! 😊. I highly recommend Dr Godambe and her staff. Thanks Doctor Godambe and nurses."

"Not always do you get doctors that care, they just get in there do construction on you and call it a day. I must say I felt love from the time I walked in, to the time when the doctor came in to prep me for what was about to take place. The nurse and the anesthesia doctor was so attentive to me I knew that this was ordered by God. The entire office staff is loving and caring and treating you as if you are themselves or a loved one. Thank you Lord for people like you❤️"

"I really like Dr Godambe. I feel she is one of the few doctors who respects the patient's decisions about their healthcare. I have ulcerative colitis, and although she offers suggestions about new medications to make my life better, she doesn't force her opinion or bully me (which some GI dr's I've had in the past try to do). Excellent bedside manner; very caring. She did my last colonoscopy and it went very smoothly. Highly recommend her."

"Our experience with Dr. Godambe was exceptional. Outstanding. (1) First, Dr. Godambe genuinely listened to our concerns - our perspectives - on caring for our son (who we brought to her for care). She then responded thoughtfully. We left thinking that she truly cared about us as people. (2) She was also thorough in her responses, in her diagnoses and in her recommendations. (3) She was super prompt in responding to calls and in reaching us with an urgent x-ray update. Highly recommend on all levels!"
