This was my first phone consultation regarding a recent ultrasound. It was preceded by a brief nurse review of my current health followed by a report from Dr Vijay regarding the test results. I thought it was very thorough and I enjoyed being able to do it from the comfort of my home

I have been with Dr. Vijay for many years. He is always very knowledgeable and professional. I also like the fact that if he is not available one of the other doctors is there to promptly take care of me. I came back from a vacation last year very sick and they immediately got me in the hospital and my issue resolved. I have in the past, and continue to, recommend their office.

Always good to see Dr. Vijay as a 10 plus year patient of his. He is great to keep track of my heart issues. I hope some young doctor is learning from Dr Vijay. We need more doctors with his experience and expertise.

Dr. Vijay is very methodical and thorough. He explains the findings so that they are understandable and discusses options for your care to your satisfaction. In addition to staying up on current research, he conducts his own research and studies. He also mentors students who are in the medical field. I highly recommend him to new patients.

Dr. Vijay has been my cardiologist for well over 30 years, and I have been very pleased with his treatment of my cardiac condition. I never feel hurried when I have my appointments with him, and he takes the time to explain in layman's language the results of my blood work, procedures and physical in general. Dr. Vijay is very smart, detailed and caring. He is not only an outstanding cardiac physician but in addition, he and his wife and family have become good friends!

Dr. Vijay is a caring and thorough cardiologist. His depth of knowledge and experience are invaluable when deciding on cardiac care options. He does not pressure patients into procedures - but rather lays out the options and possible benefits for the patient to make the ultimate decision. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr Vijay is wonderful. While I get great annual care at my checkup, he has also seen two of my friends I recommended and they have also been extremely helped by his vast knowledge and caring attitude which is never condescending. He answers any question you might have. There is a reason he has been named a Top Doctor by 5280 magazine and he also does research for the American Heart Association. You want him on your medical team!

I value the care I receive from Dr. Vijay. I feel that his expert opinion has been invaluable in getting me started on the appropriate treatment for my irregular heartbeat which has been diagnosed as SVT. I have subsequently been fortunate to find an excellent electro cardiologist in Houston who has concurred with and continued on the line of his treatment plan. Happy Holidays and hope to see you when in Denver next summer, Dr. Vijay!
