He’s a wonderful doctor and a very compassionate person
Dr. Gupta and his team are excellent!
Dr. Gupta has kept me alive for the past three years and I am eternally grateful to him and Stanford for that. I feel that Dr. Gupta has become more like a friend than a doctor to me. I am certain that I can become a difficult patient at times but Dr. Gupta has been patient and caring throughout this process. I feel extremely lucky to have Dr. Gupta be my guide in this final phase of my life.
Best doctor I could possibly ask for. Always takes time to answer all my questions and makes me feel reassured about my health concerns.

Dr. Gupta and his team are the BEST
I was delighted that PA Samantha Kramer offered a video conference with her and Dr. Gupta. Samantha had seen that I had a procedure 2 days prior to my appointment and knew that a video conference would be as effective as an in person visit. It was a relief for my husband and I to avoid a snarky commute to Stanford again. The visit with Samantha and the following visit with Dr. Gupta and Betty, RN coordinator couldn’t have been better. All information was shared easily and all of my questions were answered. All of the provider’s empathy to my situation was not lost in the video visit. I will always opt in for video visits in the future if my provider feels it is an option.
Dr Gupta is an excellent doctor and so compassionate and personable
