Patient Comments (1)
in League City, TX |
Dr. Viswanathan is an excellent doctor, He listens well and shows he really cares about his patients. The frustrating thing is that he is only there on Mondays. Messages sent through MyChart are not aways read and communicated to him in a timely manner. If something comes up during the week, It is almost impossible to reach him or someone in his office that can answer a question.
