We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Senthilvel took his time with our daughter who had a illness that caused some sleep issues. He reviewed all medical data in thorough detail. The sleep study help resolve the issues with great results. Highly recommend Dr Senthilvel!

I had to push the doctor for sleep study for my daughter as he easily/quickly dismissed our concerns as "normal" being a teenager in todays society. Only because I am a medical provider and would not back down did he order a test. Had to force him to answer relevant health questions for my daughter on how to improve her sleep. All together, spent 15 minutes with him and a student (permission not received prior as I would not have consented). Received the bill for a 60 minute face to face. Despicable practice. Will never return and will not refer any patients to his practice.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Senthilvel. He is very patient and really listens to any concerns or questions you have. He takes time during your appointment to talk to you and doesn’t make you feel rushed. My daughter has been seeing him for over a year for her narcolepsy with cataplexy and she absolutely loves him. We are both pleased with her treatment and the results we have gotten.

Our first visit was wonderful. He was very attentive to my daughters problems. He was very nice and seemed he cared. We went back for the results from her study. As soon as he walked in the room I was able to sense he had a attitude for some reason. He kept looking at his watch. While he was going over the sleep test with me he grabs his lap top and says" wonder if my next patient is ready" which is very unprofessional. We drove 2 1/2 hours to see him but he seemed we wasted his time. SAD !!

My son was a difficult case to treat but Dr. Senthilvel was successful. Finally getting quality sleep improved his life remarkably. The practice is excellent and provides compassionate first rate care.

Dr. Senthilvel has provided a better life quality for our adult son with Down Syndrome that was scared to undergo a sleep study, but with the patience and understanding he did the sleep study and after several months of using the bipap machine his obstructed sleep apnea has decreased from 101 events per hour to well under 10 per hour. My son has started to lose weight and feel better rested and is more social interactive with others. I highly recommend Dr. S for his compassion & knowledge.

After 18 months of searching for answers to our son's health issues, we finally got in to see Dr. Sinthilvel. We were most impressed with his up-to-date knowledge and the time he spent with us. We also appreciated the (traditional) treatment options he laid out for us. His testing methods were thorough and conducted by knowledgeable and kind technicians. One draw back was the time it took us to get in to see the doctor.

We love Dr. S as we affectionately call him. He is dedicated to our infants sleep needs. He spends quality time with us making sure to go over all the test results. He encourages questions and takes the time to answer them. I highly recommend Dr. S to anyone in need of a pediatric sleep specialist.
