My 17 year-old son is presently in surgery to repair a lung condition. I have been impressed with Dr. Vegunta through every step of this journey which began 10 days ago with a surgery on my son’s other lung. Dr. Vegunta has a calm demeanor which helps us feel at ease. He is very thorough. I feel confident that nothing has gone unnoticed. I appreciate his quiet & disciplined nature. He has sacrificed years of his life to learn and become an expert in his field. I am very grateful for him.

We are so happy and proud to be patients of Dr. Vegunta and his staff. Our son was born with IA and Dr. V has been an amazing resource of positivity and knowledge about his scenario. We can honestly say that we have always been treated with respect and dignity each and every time we have visited the office. My husband and I have the utmost confidence in him. I can't say enough or give enough praise for his professionalism and skill as a surgeon. 5 stars for Dr. Vengunta is an understatement.

Dr. Vegunta was absolutely phenomenal. Our girl had duodenal atresia at birth and he did her surgery and ended up catching that her intestines were nonrotated and fixed that as well. This is a somewhat rare surgery and could have gone very wrong with the wrong surgeon. I'm blessed to have had such a great surgeon handling it. I have no doubt that my daughters great recovery was a result of his expertise. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants their child in good hands.
