Hello I am not certain whether this would be an appropriate place to leave a message for Dr. Venkatesh. I would like to know whether he is the son of Dr. A. Venkatesh who studied at Kilpauk Medical and graduated in 1971 in Chennai. Dr. Prithikachary his class mate who is a neurologist had met up with him earlier and wants to contact him. I can mediate the communications. I am Ram Vairavan and you can reach me at rvairavan@aol.com. If there is no connection kindly excuse me message thanks

Dr. Venkatesh is very helpful and follows up with his patients. When I needed surgery he was able to schedule it and took care of me. He checked on me every day to make sure I was doing well.

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.
