I had a very large skin tag that needed to be removed. My GI doctor said it would need to be surgically removed, and recommended two Colon-Rectal surgeons. I chose Dr. Venkatesh. I am really glad I did. Dr. Venkatesh was able to remove the skin tag in his office. I also have have a chronic pilonidal cyst that I was told would need to be surgically removed as well since it had not healed after having been lanced several times. However, Dr. Venkatesh said the next time it flared up, he would open it up to see if it would heal from the inside out. I say all of this to indicate that Dr. Venkatesh takes conservative approaches and does not recommend surgery except as a last resort. I would not have known otherwise. He also took the time to explain in detail what I needed to do for the healing process. I did not feel rushed, and he answered all of my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Venkatesh if you have colon/rectal issues!!! His staff was also friendly and very professional!!

He doesn't explain your medical problem or discuss best options and outcomes. Basically, I left there with a piece of paper of exactly what I could have Googled online. Turns out that there was a lot of information that I should have been given to avoid damage and surgery. He seemed most interested in using a special medical tool to increase his billable charges.

I had a very difficult issue corrected By Dr.V. He didn't mince words in saying even the fix could leave me with incontinence for the rest of my life. Thanks to his skill I have no long term issues to deal with. Thank you Dr. V!

This doctor is excellent, and the nicest Doctor. So is his staff. I had a great experience with him and I still see him. When I read a bad review from a patient who says he is worse, the patient has to be the problem. This doctor has a wonderful bed manners. He is so nice and he listens. Also he takes care of me when I need help with a problem. This man does not even raise his voice or has any mean streak. He is well educated and an excellent Doctor.

I met Dr. Venkatesh 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Although I work in surgery at the same hospital he practices at, I had not met him prior to my diagnosis. He was the surgeon on call the day I was admitted from complications of the cancer. He performed emergency surgery on me for 6 hrs. He went above and beyond his call of duty and he did an EXCELLENT job. I have not had ANY pain or complications. He is fantastic and VERY compassionate. He is THE BEST colon surgeon by far

Dr. Venkatesh is a fantastic doctor who knows exactly what he's doing. He treats his patients with respect and dignity. As a 21-year-old, I never thought I'd be dealing with these types of issues, and I was beginning to feel insecure with my body because of said issues. Well, with Dr. Venkatesh's help, everything is back to normal - something I never thought would be possible! I would highly recommend him to anyone!
