Dr. Vikram exceeded my expectations. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and detail oriented. He documented everything I said about my condition and gave me feedback that was not cookie cutter or repetitive. Generally, the wait time was reasonable and the receptionist was friendly. Only been to this office 3 times but each time has been an encouraging experience. I guess that's why I have kept coming back!

Recently moved to Okeechobee. Doctor wanted a look for himself even although test were not due. His Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. Immediately referred me to Cleveland Clinic for surgical consult for Barrett's Esophagus. The removed 1/2 of my esophagus and no pre/post chemo. The doctor saved my life from this aggressive cancer. Caught it early and only in my esophagus.
