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!

To compare the care from one cardiologist to another I'd rate Dr Vijay outstanding because of his thoroughness, his way of explaining and his calmness. He has made himself available when necessary.

I have been seeing Dr. Vijay since 1998- 20 years. In all those years he has seen me through regular check-up which after 18 years led to surgery. In my opinion, he is the best cardiologist in Colorado and works tirelessly for your care and well-being.

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!

The epitome of what ANY physician should be! Clinically outstanding, total commitment to his patient, takes whatever amount of time that’s necessary to answer questions, explore options and insure that patient is fully informed. Truly a model for other physicians.

I have been one of Dr. Vijay's patients for several years. Always find his treatment excellent. I have had a couple different issues and he has treated them quickly and right on point. I feel better new than I did five years ago.

Dr. Vijay is a renowned cardiologist with a lifetime of experience. This in itself is reassuring to a patient, but even more reassuring is the fact hat he seems to give his full attention to his patient, whether the concerns be large or small. THis must be very difficult for a doctor whose sechedule is more than full, and whose age might "slow down" another physician. I was delighted to meet Dr. Vijay and trusted his experience and findings without a doubt.
