What People Say About Dr. Vipul Dev, MD

The refuse to treat certain patients and will ignore calls and dump patients if they are on Medi-Cal, even though they have approved procedures. Terrible treatment unless you have a lot of money and are paying cash or have "good" insurance. I have submitted a complaint to the State of California. I will not use them now because I don't trust them to properly perform surgery given their bias against those who have less money. It is a clear prejudice of refusal to treat patients.

Very helpful doctor. Actually takes the time to explain things to you when you're confused. Very helpful staff. I have used this doctor and his office staff on more than one occasion. There's a reason I keep coming back to this office whenever I need something done.

Dr. Dev's office staff was very helpful. They helped me figure out my insurance and worked with me. Dr. Dev was extremely welcoming and made sure I understood everything about the procedure I had scheduled. It's been a while since surgery and I'm very excited about my results!

Dr. Dev did a breast reduction, due to the swelling I kept blowing out the side stitches on both breasts. After numerous visits to his office, his nurse tried to glue the wounds, and urgent care, 3 weeks after surgery I ended up with a 2nd surgery and 3 days in the hospital due to an infection. His after surgery care was beyond horrible. I am very unhappy with the outcome, not only are my nipples not even, I feel like Frankenstein with the scarring that is still bothersome after 2 years.
