Dr. Venkatesh saved my life. Having shortness of breath, he immediately sensed I needed urgent attention. After a few phone calls with Hospital, he admitted me thru ER, quick tests showed PE in my lungs that could have killed me if I had waited longer. Now I look back and consider myself so fortunate that I went to Dr. Venkatesh. Very calm, great listener, pays attention to details, cares about patient needs , and answers all questions very methodically and in plain language. Just a wonderful experience..

Dr. Venkatesh is such a kind, caring doctor with a very soothing manner. He took so much time listening and concentrating as I told him my symptoms. I didn't feel rushed. He, then gave a thorough explanation to me of my problems and what can be done for them. I felt I was in the good hands of a competent doctor. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.

Dr. Venkatesh literally saved my life! He says he is a worrier but to me he is a Warrior of God. I thank him every time I see him and he says to not thank him but thank God. What a loving, caring, exceptional man he is! I trust anything he says. He takes as long as you need and has you talking while he is also reviewing your chart. He goes back sometimes to your first visit and reviews any additional problems you might have come up. He is thorough, professional, smart and highly intelligent. I wasn't kidding when I said he saved my life! His staff is absolutely wonderful. They truly care about your needs, ask how you are feeling and even will wheel you to ER if necessary.

Dr. Venkatesh listens well, and is focused on end results for the patient. He does a good job of asking questions and digging in to find and fix root causes. I have been seeing him for my asthma for several years, and I am much better for it. He has a great office staff, too!

Yesterday I saw Dr. Venkatesh for the first time for a persistent cough. I was in awe of the time he spend with me learning, not only my complete medical history, but my parents and siblings, to determine if and how there were contributing factors to current issue. He told me his goal was to find out why I was having my issue, not put a bandaid on.l. His patience is remarkable, most thorough in his questioning and note taking and spoke to me in layman’s terms so I would comprehend his plan of action and what the potential outcomes could be. I thank my lucky stars he is my doctor.

When Dr. Venkatesh was a young doctor he cared for both of my parents for many years. He is extremely knowledgeable, not only in his field, but in the overall care of his patients. He is known to make a correct diagnosis when other doctors have missed the mark. Now, I too, am a patient and can't speak highly enough about this wonderful man who genuinely cares about people and their health and well being.

I have been a patient of Dr V for approximately 5 years and I would not change him for the world! He is caring, patient, listens, professional and always greets you with a smile. When a Dr looks straight at you while you are expressing your concerns, listens and takes the time to comfort..that’s my kind of Dr! Awesome staff as well.

Dr. Venkatesh is exceptional. He listened to me before he looked at any of the tests so he could get a complete picture of my situation. He is truly concerned about MY health and will not let the insurance dictate what needs to be done.

A rare bread of doctor left in today’s world. I came to Dr Venkatesh after a lung cancer scare and he was phenomenal. He immediately was personable and assuring, showed interest in my well being, knew my case and reviewed my scans, was thorough, and soothing to the situation at hand. So happy to have him as my pulmonologist.

This is the first doctor that has ever said and truly meant to call him if you need him before your next appointment. He is not only exceptional at what he does, but makes every effort to keep the costs down for both the patient and the insurance. He was a referral from my Primary Care Doctor and a friend whose comments were EXACTLY what my experience continues to be. Listens to what I have to say and tells how my comments reflect in my treatment and care. He is a blessing
