Dr. Veera was my doctor 19 years ago until I moved out of the area. Now that I am living here again, I transferred back into his care from MUSC. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and truly a leader in his field. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful doctor that is close by.

Christy in Belton, SC – Jun 24, 2019
Dr Veera is the best in his specialty. He has treated me for Crohns for several years now. In fact, he is the doctor who diagnosed me. He and his physician's assistant Dipika Patel are highly recommended.

Dr. Veera, I believe, truly cares about his patients - that is my experience. He listens intently, answers all questions, and even has an appropriate sense of humor. His not rushing and being calm helps me to relax and trust him. I was visiting my husband in the hospital recently and Dr. Veera saw me from a distance. He wanted to know what was happening that I was in the hospital. And I have seen him just three times. If you need GI help, get a referral from your PCP and call Dr. Veera.

Walhalla, SC – Aug 21, 2016
I have a 16 yr old son I took to Dr. Verra with stomach issues he was the only doctor to diagnose him correctly and give him the medication to help him. He listened to him explain is symptoms and did not take him for a child not knowing his body. All the nurses and staff are friendly and very well trained in their field and went out of there way to get him scheduled on a no school day for a procedure. Dr Verra explains things very well and you do not go out of the office feeling confused.
