I had a very bad experience with this doctor would not recommend him to anybody I found him very rude and arrogant he gave me the wrong diagnosis. He told me I had no blockage there was nothing wrong with me. The very next day I had surgery for a blockage at a different hospital. BTW three doctors said that I had a blockage while Venkatesh told me to go home. He also went on a rant about another hospital.

This is the only doctor who has ever taken a phone call long after a colonoscopy. He also is the only doctor that actually explains the details of a disease and gives a long term treatment plan. He also doesn't insist on having you come back for an office visit just to get a prescription. Best doctor I have ever seen.
