What People Say About Dr. Venu Divi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a bad experience with this doctor. He made me wait 45 min in his inner office. Came into the room, asked me a question and interrupted me several times while I attempted to give my current symptoms. He does not listen to the patient. He was arrogant, full of himself and lacking in compassion. His bed side manner is poor and unkind. His front desk girl ( w) is cold, rude and acts bothered if you dare to ask her a question. She definitely reflects his attitude. Dr. Divi does not know how to listen to patients. Would never recommend this doctor . He clearly suffers from a ‘god complex’ that some doctors have. He does more damage than good! Makes no effort to connect with the patient.

Never have I ever felt so mistreated before at any doctors office in my life. I came in because I was bounced around from my primary care doc saying I needed to see urgent care for further cultures for lower neck ache lymph nodes pain, throat pain, tonsil white puss and fever. Urgent care said I needed to see an Ent. I went here and the doctor talked with me for 5 minutes, left the room and helped another patient, I waited 30 in there- and then he came back and didn’t even offer to do a culture?? I asked him to please do so- he did. Then after his nurse explained they would call me with the results, being very accomadating due to my distance and state of discomfort I was in. The doctor said I had to wait another week before knowing anything which I thought was crazy. I waited though, but no one ever called me. I called to follow up and their rude receptionist was so unbelievably unkind and uncaring - told me no one was going to call me before the holiday to tell me if my results were

I had a very poor experience with this doctor. His attitude really rubbed me the wrong way; he was quite argumentative and dismissive with my elderly father. IF you want to work with the public have some patience and compassion. I will never return.

I was thrilled to find Dr. Divi (through an internet search). He is very responsive to questions and very thorough. Sympathetic to my lifelong issues which are chronic (this has not been true of many other doctors). I liked his office staff, too. They are friendly and efficient. Also, I did not have to wait very long for my appt. (usual time, within 20-30 mins).

Dr. Divi is knowledgeable, efficient & a friendly young doctor who provides you with information that is easy to comprehend. He thoroughly explains procedures and your treatment plan. He spends more than adequate amount of time with you. When you leave his office, you feel very content with the visit. He is easy to reach by phone and returns phone calls in a prompt manner. Wendy, the office manager, is a great asset to the office. She is very efficient, helpful and approachable.
