DR. Velusamy is an excellent doctor. I went to two others for my leg problems, then decided to visit Dr. Velusamy. He gave me the most complete physical exam and discussed with me my best options; I have been very pleased with my improvement. I would certainly recommend him to others with restless legs, leg pain or circulation problems. His staff is excellent as well. His PA (Michael) is great.

I am very glad circumstances lead me to Dr Velusamy. I like him very much because he "doctors". If he sees an issue, he takes action right away. I had AFIB for 5 years under another cardiologist. Within three weeks, he had a heart oblation done. And four weeks later (I delayed), he put a stent in my heart. I am feeling so much better!! Thank you Dr Velusamy for giving me my life back.

Dr. Velusamy immediately recognized the problem with my varicose veins in both legs and treated them. He eliminated the pain that had plagued me for years. I am now able to stand for a considerable time and walk without aching. The swelling in each leg is greatly reduced. I am thankful for his expertise. I would recommend him without reservation.

I have found Dr. Velusamy to be a very caring and compassionate physician. He identified my problem and answered all my questions at length in understandable language. He seems to take a personal interest in his patients’ needs. He is very knowledgeable and has a very pleasant and friendly demeanor. I was referred to his office in pain and on a walker and after diagnosis and treatment I am now walking without assistance and free of pain. Would definitely recommend him.

I was recently seen by Dr. Velusamy, a referral from my Primary Care, as I needed to get cleared for an upcoming surgery. Dr. Velusamy's staff not only accommodated me by finding a hole in his very busy schedule, but each an every person that works for him were extremely polite, pleasant & professional. I was seen quickly and Dr. V. who was extremely thorough, knowledgeable & pleasant. I had to take a stress test and an echogram, and even the technicians were outstanding. Highly recommend Dr. V

I took my Mother to Dr. Velusamy on a Thursday. Her left foot and toes were purple. She was scared she was going to lose her toes. Dr. V examined her. Ran some test. The following Tuesday she had four stints implanted in her left leg. The foot and toe colors changed to pink. It was a complete success. The doctor is patient and explains everything to us and answers all of our questions. She recently had the same procedure done on the right leg. It is doing much better now too.
