What People Say About Dr. Vellore Kasturi, MD

She did a lab check I had refused. Th r n phoned in a prescription for antibiotics which I do not take and told her so. D She then billed by insurance for a biopsy when all she did was swab a small scrape with a qtip. I told her immediately I did not want lab work done. I did not find out she had claimed a biopsy until my next visit. I had not gone to her for this scrape and it did not need treatment!!!! She does not listen to patients or just does not care. Will never go to her again!!

I went to Dr. Kasturi for a second opinion and I found her refreshing! I was relieved that she not only listened to my concerns, but answered my questions with patience and empathy. I am looking forward to my next visit and would recommend her to my family and friends??
