Dr. Natesan has been my primary care physician for about twenty years, and during all of those years he has been terrific in all respects. His expertise is unquestionable. He is warm, kind, caring, and patient. I never feel rushed during an appointment. I highly recommend him.

I have been with Dr. Natesan for a little over a year, and I am very impressed with the entire staff, both medical and office. Both Drs. Natesan listen, ask questions, and are caring. The PA I saw once was also terrific. The nursing staff is friendly and efficient. Lastly, the office staff is wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. Calls are returned in a timely manner. Every experience I've had at this office has been positive, which is really quite something!

I have been Dr. Vel's patient for several years. I am 79 years old and have never felt better in my life and I attribute this to the excellent care I receive from Dr. Vel.

Dr. Natesan is a wonderful doctor who cares about his patients. His office staff pales in comparison. Some are kind and helpful but several are dismissive, unresponsive, and generally unpleasant. Despite providing insurance info every visit, the office made an error and did not bill my insurance within a reasonable period of time. Consequently, a portion of my visit was not covered and I was sent to collections until i agreed to pay the difference caused by their mistake. The stories go on....

There isn't a problem with the Doctors at this practice. It's the office manager. She has no compassion towards any patients. She will have you released from seeing a doctor here, she will not allow any explanation or allow you to see the doctor's ever again especially if you are having issues with your insurance company. I never have had a doctor's office quit seeing a patient and not have a concern about their medical conditions or care. This office does not care about you. Just money.
