Dr Vankineni did not listen to me or my issue. I am a 22 y/o woman who yes I'm young and my condition isn't life threatening so he made me feel not important. He mocked paperwork for my job and called the questions "stupid" to his nurse. He sticks to the books only. Every possible procedure he could perform he did, but never diagnosed my issue. Because all tests were clear he didn't feel the need to help me anymore but killed my insurance & I'm still miserable daily!

Dr. Vankineni not only took care of me and solved my medical problems; more importantly he took care of my elderly Mom. He is extremely kind and caring, doesn't rush you through an appointment but rather listens.

Dr. Vankineni is a kind and caring doctor. He was patient in describing my condition and the options. He recommended the appropriate tests and a conservative approach. When further intervention was required he recommended a very skilled surgeon and coordinated the procedure. He visited me in the hospital after the surgery and explained in detail what could be expected. I have been using Dr. Vankineni for more than 20 years in Huntsville.

This doctor is very arrogant. He does not show consideration towards his patients & treats them like a number, even checking his watch as they explain their symptoms towards him. If he paid attention, he might actually be able to help.
