What People Say About Dr. Aarthi Vijaykumar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Terrible experience. Without being an oncologist or having ANY imaging or biopsies to prove it, Dr. Vijaykumar told my mom her cancer had spread. Since when does a nephrologist, a KIDNEY doctor, have the right to scare my mom that way? In fact, her cancer had NOT spread and the mess Dr. Vijaykumar left had to be corrected by my mom's oncologist and oncology surgeon. This was completely irresponsible behavior.

Dr. V is a very good doctor. I like her very much, she cares about her patients, if there's a problem she will always try to find you a solution. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who's in the need for this type of doctor.

I wasn't comfortable with my first appointment with a different doctor. I feel that my decision to change was one of the best decisions I've made . She is everything you would want when seeking this type of health care.

Dr. Vijaykumar is very patient and caring. My mom has been seeing her for over a year and her health has been stable. If there is ever concern with test results Dr. Vijaykumar takes the time to explain options or why test need to be repeated and such. Thank you dr and staff for such wonderful service and care.
