I had my vsg surgery on 6/19/2017 with Dr. Doraswamy. I have had 6 visits with the good Dr. prior to my procedure. Make a list and ask questions. He is very nice and kind. He will take the time to answer all of your questions. I was also very happy with his staff, Nicole and Leo. I am so glad I went with this Dr. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dr. Doraiswamy is unlike any Doctor you will ever come across. He truly cares about his patients and will give you his undivided attention. You will truly feel like his only patient. His continued care, follow up, and compassion for his patients extend far past the surgery room. His surgical skills are unsurpassed and in my case, he was able to finally repair something that two other surgeons were not. If you are considering any surgical procedure, I strongly recommend Dr. Doraiswamy.

I got my surgical procedure to treat l hernia from Dr Asok D. Though i was lot confused and nervous initially but gained a lot of confidence after feeling the results. I am able to perform vigorous workouts at gym with no pain and everything as usual in very short time after procedure. No doubt, he is greatly talented and really appreciate his patience. He spends ample time with patients explaining their questions. I certainly recommend Asok for any kind of surgery.

I did my research first, being an RN! Dr Doraiswamy was far from where I live but is the very best so now, 6 days post op, I couldn't be happier! The Methodist hospital is by far the best hospital I've ever been in and every member of staff was an absolute joy, remaining cheerful even at 4am! Everybody appeared very happy in their job. I had some complications resulting in a few extra days stay (I always get bad post op nausea and vomiting) and was so well taken care of I didn't want to go home!

Dr. Doraiswamy is a such great doctor in technical and humanity. My mother found breast mass and need biopsy process, it might take over month to get diagnosis and surgery. She had bloody discharge and scared the cancer to spread out. We requested Dr. Doraiswamy as second opinion, he scheduled urgent appointment and get cancer removed cleanly. Pathological report found the cancer cell just started spread already. It is blessing to get it under control early. Right doctor make life different.
