Care Philosophy

I help patients who has difficulty breathing which is very scary feeling for a patient . Quality of life is significantly affected if you are Short of Breath. Also I combined my Specialty as a Pulmonologist with Sleep and Obesity Medicine as it gets harder for a patient to loose weight when they are Short of Breath and constantly feeling tired with non refreshing Sleep with Sleep Apnea. I have developed a comprehensive program in my office to provide Evidence based State of the art care. I am Board Certified in 6 different Specialties including Pulmonary, Sleep and Obesity Medicine to provide care with expertise .

Dr.Deepak Vadhan very good at what he does. He doesn't rush from patient to patient, but takes time with each one, answering any question you may have in a way that could be understood. If you're interested in finding a good pulmonologist, I highly recommend him.

I went for a follow up today on 9:30 AM. I waited until 11 AM and had to leave for another obligation. So I didn't see the doctor. It takes me an hour to drive to his DeKalb office and find parking. With another 40 minutes drive back, trying to see the doctor is a 3-plus hour ordeal for me. The doctor is great, but for my particular scheduling and time circumstances unfortunately, I cannot go to his office any longer unless they figure out how to reduce wait times to less than an hour.

Dr. Vadhan is a kind and gentle doctor, who listened to me, did not rush and made me feel comfortable on my first visit! The plan we developed for me is easy to follow and makes sense! I would definitely recommend him!

This doctor actually practice medicine from his heart, caring for his patient and the most important he takes his time to listen to patient's complaints. Doesn't give you the run around with unnecessary test, but short right to the point, great attitude and no nonsense. Scheduled visits are kept in timely manner , usually he comes first to his office before even his office employees which is rare these days. I highly recommend this doctor to others.

I went to see Dr. Vadhan a year ago when I was feeling very sick and none couldn't diagnoses me. After listening carefully what I had to say and how I felt, Dr. Vadhan send me testings and prescribed medications. Dr. Vadhan was very knowledgable about my condition, calmly he explained everything and answered any questions that I had. Six months later I feel a different person and I couldn't feel more happy about it, thanks to Dr. Vadhan. I would highly recommend Dr. Vadhan!

Dr. Vadhan made me feel comfortable and well assured. I was wheezing a lot, unable to breathe and lungs felt heavy. He did the proper tests and went out of his way to request my recent blood work from the lab, to see if there were any connections to my condition. I would definitely recommend him.

I went to the doctor for the first time this afternoon and I was taken right away which was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and sweet...I've had a chronic cough and the doctor was very knowledgeable and seemed very caring and compassionate. He also explained what was going on to my husband which was very important to me. Hopefully with the medications he gave me and the things he told me to do I will be healthy again??

When I came to Dr. Vadhan, I had high blood pressure, was severely overweight, my asthma was getting bad, and my anxiety made it very difficult to do my job as a IT Manager. After seeing him back in January, he came up with a plan to reduce my anxiety and high blood pressure thru weight loss and my asthma thru the use of a different medication. Almost a year later, I lost over 50 lbs, my blood pressure is lower, my asthma is under control, and my anxiety is much less. This doctor can be trusted.

Dr Vadhan has made me a new man I am very glad that my niece referred me to him. I can start to do things I haven't done in many years and my family are very help to have me back.

It's been a little over one year since Dr. Vadhan became my Dr. Walking into his office feeling hopeless after gaining about 50lbs in 2 yrs. The first thing He said to me was " am going to help you". It's now 1 yr later , and I have losted 45 lbs thanks to Dr . Vadhan . I think he's very caring, approchable , gives eye contact, awsome bedside manners and treats his patients with dignity and respect. I wish we had more Drs that is as caring as he is. Heraline .

Both my daughter and I visited Dr. Vadhan Friday morning for the 1st time. Dr. Vadhan was warm, and clearly interested in all aspects of my daughter's and my health. When he noticed something he felt may be a problem, he immediately tested, and then referred me to a specialist, who saw me a few hours later. That evening he phoned to see how I was doing. I felt like I was living in another time. My experience with Dr. Vadhan was that personal. His staff was also a pleasure. Highly recommended.
