I'm so impressed with Dr Viswanath and his surgical skill. Due to my privacy I will not be discussing which procedure I had done, but suffice to say that Dr Viswanth took care of my problem and I haven't looked back. I have already referred him to my friends, family and colleagues (due to the nature of work I am in). Thank you Dr Viswanath!

One of the worst Doctors I've ever taken my child to see. My son had an injury that required surgery within 7 to 10 days. Dr. Viswanath requested an MRI (the following day), which is not generally required for this type of injury. He splinted my son's hand in a manner increasing stress on the injury. Then, after the MRI, he didn't bother to call back for a week. I would simply describe him as the kind of doctor you want to avoid.

Dr. Viswanath is an incredible surgeon. He was patient with excellent bedside manner. He took the time to explain everything I needed to make an informed decision about my treatment. He is truly an excellent surgeon and I would recommend anyone with orthopedic issues to him!

Dr Viswanath is a terrific surgeon. He spent extra time to make certain I understood the procedure and answered all of my questions. He was super nice and compassionate. The surgery went well and I am almost fully recovered.

I went to see Dr. V for my severe carpal tunnel surgery. I was immediately impressed by his professionalism, his expertise in his field, and his caring nature. I am very happy with the results, and will be going in for my other hand in the next few weeks. My postop care was exceptional, all the way from Dr V, to his staff and his MA's.

Dr. Viswanath is the best! After having hand issues for multiple years, with numerous consults with many physicians, he was the only physician that was able to accurately diagnose my condition. My surgery went extremely well. He is the most patient surgeon I have met, he has excellent bedside manner, and I would recommend him to everyone! GO SEE HIM!
in Calabasas, CA |
He did emergency hand surgery following an animal bite, He was wonderful. Extremely caring, knowledgable about the potential complications and how to prevent them, Surgery was total success and his followup care has been just as successful. He also has a terrific bedside manner, unlike many other orthopedic surgeons. He also worked great with the infectious disease doctor, Highly recommend Dr. Viswanath!
