For those people who have left a 1 star for this good doctor, I consider it as bad judgement. If you are questioning his credentials, he is WELL qualified and he did his part in spending time with you while juggling patients at the office and in the hospital especially during COVID. Unlike some doctors that made you wait for hours and spent less than 10 minutes without going into any details. Lets be fair, the doctor sometimes has to leave the office to take care of patients in emergency when the hospitals call. If you feel that you cannot wait, go to emergency or go to urgent care. I can assure you the wait can be as long 2 to 3 hours if the emergency room personnel consider your case as non life threatening. Appointments and scheduling in any doctors office is the exact same way, do not feel rushed when it comes to your health and everyone else's.

Best doctor!! He is not a robot BUT is a real doctor, a doctor that really cares for his patients. I am so happy my wife's friend introduced me to Dr. Vadgama, he took time to listen to my health concerns and did his best to resolve my issues. He spends time with his patients and makes sure that I understood his guidance and information given to me. The staff is so helpful too especially with Maribel and Mara, who are a great duo at the front! It is a really hectic time for this office during this crucial time with COVID but they are handling it with grace. Thank you so much Mid Valley Pulmonary staff who have impacted my life so much.

This review is long over due but after my husband came from his appointment, I decided to take initiative to finally share our experience coming here. Dr. Vadgama has been my husband's pulmonologist for years, my husband is 83 and has a full life thanks to Dr Vadgama who keeps his lungs clear. Dr. V is thorough and caring, you can ask questions and will get a clear response. His staff is excellent, if you or someone you know who needs to seek attention with their respiratory issues, use Dr Vadgama for a second opinion it will save your life.

Dr. Vadgama is a wonderful doctor. He is so calm and caring. I’m very glad I found him. Unfortunately I find his office staff to be a bit rude, but it’s worth it to see him.

Dr Vadgama was very nice. Asked questions, and explained everything and told me what we would do next. Seems intelligent and did treated me as a human being without patronizing me. I like him and his care very much. Only bad thing was I waited over an hour past my appointment time before they brought me into a room.

He is an outstanding Dr. who cares about his patients and his care is excellent in every way. I consider myself lucky to have found him as my Dr. I think I would have not survived my hospital stay if it had not been for him. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

I hate going to doctors so when I was told I needed to see another specialist, a pulmonologist, I wasn't the least bit thrilled. The first thing I noticed when I met Dr. Vadgama was how charming he is. He's very soft spoken which makes you feel at ease. His examination was thorough and he addressed all my questions and concerns.

I followed up with Dr. Vadgama's office after seeing him at Valley Presbyterian and the process was pretty easy. His schedule is almost always full but if you need to be seen sooner, he'll even schedule you earlier than usual. He is very friendly, has excellent bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. His office was very helpful in obtaining the records, labs and x rays directly from the hospital so I didn't have to worry about that. If you have pulmonary needs, I highly recommend Dr. Vadgama.

Dr. Vadgama genuinely cares about his patients. As soon as he walks into the exam room he makes you feel comfortable and at ease. He takes his time to explain your condition and answers any and all questions you may have. While his wait time is a little ridiculous, in the end it's totally worth it.

Doctor Vadgama looks like is a good doctor but as he is the one who hired his staff so I don't think he's a good doctor either and care about his patients. His staff are the most worse staff ever and because of that I won't recommend him to anybody! I wish I could give them 0 Star!!
