HOTTEST GASTROENTEROLGIST: Dr. Abhitabh Patil

HOTTEST GASTROENTEROLGIST

The last thing you want to do before drifting off for a colonoscopy is gaze into the eyes of an incredibly gorgeous gastroenterologist who, in a few short moments, will be directing a camera up your colon. Nevertheless, that’s what happened — and it’s a good thing, because Dr. Patil figured out that I’d been sick but undiagnosed for a really long time, and essentially saved my life — or at least gave me a longer, higher-quality one. Getting a Best of the Bay for saving a life seems so dramatic, though, so instead we’re going to give him an award no gastroenterologist in the history of the world has ever received. Probably. Seriously, Dr. Patil, thank you. —Cathy Salustri
