Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

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.

This "doctor" should not be allowed to practice medicine. She abandons patients as she does not answer her voicemails or emails. Stay away from this one.

Really awful. The other reviews, frankly, are too kind. A disgrace to her profession; condescending to her clients; not punctual; is a very good example of a 'doctor' with a God complex. DO NOT GO HERE. DO NOT. For ANY reason or service. Please. You may end up even more traumatized (as I and obviously many others have). 20 Ratings is significant and I entirely regret ever calling this place.

Dr. Vemuri has been helping me successfully for 3 years now. As with any medications surrounding mental disorders, there is a fair amount of trial and error. But the decisions on what to try were all made methodically and adjusted when necessary. She seems knowledgeable and professional.

Lazy doctor. She doesn’t care and it shows. Don’t expect this doc to return calls. She’s condescending. She has poor command of her profession. Go elsewhere if you can find someone else.

I was with Dr. Vemuri and obediently took the meds she prescribed, one after another. None of them worked and my condition worsened. Every time I visited I BEGGED for help and to let me try some meds that would ease my episodes, which could last weeks. Every time, it was, "no, try this thing, it'll help. time's up," refusing to listen as or put any effort in to help as I am on the verge of tears. In one bad incident, she did not respond to my several calls and abandoned me when I needed her.

When we moved to the area, I made appointments with Dr. Vemuri for both my daughter and myself. Neither of us really liked how she questioned us and questioned everything we've been told before. But what's worse is that on three separate occasions, I've left messages for Dr. Vemuri because of problems my daughter was having with her medications, and she never returned my calls. That's totally unacceptable for ANY healthcare provider. We will not return to her office.

She's a great listener and understands parents concerns as well as the child's well-being. Dr. Vemuri answered our questions and is very informative.
