It is easy to see that Dr. Velusamy is a brilliant dedicated and very caring doctor, after all isn’t this what every patient looks for, a smart Doctor that takes personal interest in his patients. We almost lost my mother after she suffered cardiac arrest under the care of another doctor who did not show the same concern and dedication, we switched to Dr Vulusamy and thank God we did!!! Mom is doing wonderful under Dr Vulasamy and is coming up on 2 years with no complications. Thank you Dr. Vulasamy

I've been seeing Dr. Velusamy for a few years, he diagnosed a serious heart problem I had. He's an intelligent man with vast cardiovascular knowledge. Just recently I had him perform vascular Lazar surgery on a few veins in my legs. This surgery really helped re-strengthen my legs, before this procedure I had trouble standing up from a kneeling or sitting position and walking or running was difficult too. Well now things have changed, because of this surgery.

My exprience with Dr. Velusamy and his staff is very positive. I saw Dr. Velusamy during a hospital stay and in his office. Dr. Velusamy is very thorough and answers all my questions. Recently I called his office with a medication question. His office staff (Cynthia) was very nice and made a note of my question. I received a call back within the hour with an answer. I know I can't expect to get answers that quickly all the time, but it's good to know that they will anwer questions promptly when they can. I recommend Velusamy.

Dr. Velusamy was very supportive, professional and helpful. Saw me on time and spent as much time as needed to understand my problem, make an appropriate diagnosis, and make treatment recommendations in addition to further testing. I will continue to see him for treatment and follow-up.

I took my father to Dr. Velusamy for transfer of care from NJ for his CHF. Upon first meeting Dr. V. , I knew that my father was in good hands. Dr V was extremely caring and thorough and wanted to do a very clear evaluation. We let him know that my dad wanted to pursue getting a much overdue hip replacement. Now after several visits and some revisions in medication along with treatment for his edema , he has made significant and dramatic improvement in every way. He has never gotten the kind of genuinely attentive and swift care as he has with Dr V. Could not be more pleased and so glad that I was referred to him by a friend! Office staff is also terrific!!

I must echo all other reviews and add that I'm beyond thankful I found Dr. Velusamy's office. I have only been in Tampa for a couple of years and have had two bad experiences so far. My experience with him and his staff was a breath of fresh air. They are cordial, friendly, understanding, professional, and provide prompt and attentive service. When I met Dr. Velusamy, it all made sense. His staff follows his leadership. He is very friendly and attentive. He does not only listens to your concern, but it's very detailed with his notes and the patient's health follow-up process. This is the first time, I felt like if something was wrong with me, I would have hope it is something Dr. Velusamy could address. I definitely recommend them!

This must be the best Cardiologist in the entire world. Percise, efficient, caring, listens, takes notes, on point, got me the treatment I needed asap. Easy to make appointments. Staff is amazing. The Administrator is Excellent.. Dr. MV I could have not asked for a better human being to check my very important health issues than you. I have referred him to many friends and family members. His office is easy to find. He has very well trained Techs. I was so nervous and irritated because my health was poor but they calm me down and were so patient and caring. Very clean office. Dr. you have saved my life in so many ways. You are a blessing to the Community as well.

I went to Dr. Velusamy to understand and discuss a cardiovascular concern that was creating a lot of anxiety for me. He made me feel comfortable from his first hello. He is a good listener and explained my issue in clear and simple terms. He described his team's plan for stabilizing my problem and specific actions he wanted me to take. I slept better that night than I had in days. He and his team are consummate professionals.

I first met Dr Velusamy at St Joseph's North Hospital Emergency where I had arrived on two separate occasions with Afib. He was involved with my care and treatment both times. There is something very genuine about him; and for the first time that I recall in my life, I had found a doctor that had given me a sense that he truly cared about me and my health. I was so impressed with his taking his time with me, his directness explaining things to me, along with the sensitivity needed when dealing with heart issues. My second visit at the hospital he did a cardioversion and TTE, and I was made to feel extremely comfortable with little to no anxiety. I recently had a visit at his office as a "new patient" and have absolutely no hesitation in choosing him to be my new cardiologist. I look forward to many more years of his service, and am extremely grateful that he came my way. You couldn't find a more wonderful doctor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone that comes my way.

I recently had an angiogram with Dr. Velusamy at Memorial Hospital. My experience with Dr. Velusamy and his team was outstanding and professional from initial consultation through post-op. His and their professionalism and competence at this time of anxiousness for me gave me a much-needed feeling of confidence and calmness. Thanks to you all.
