Vip performed minor hand surgery on me for a thorn in my finger. He also performed shoulder surgery on my husband to repair torn rotator and labrum. Highly recommend him.

I gave him 1 star because he may be a good surgeon but his patient care is very unprofessional. He writes reports that personally attacks his patients if you disagree with him. He does not read your therapy reports before visiting with you. I was released from his care about a little over 4 months...more

I am sorry for the feelings expressed by Sterling. To you sir, I am happy to sit with you any time. I am happy to engage every client individually and spend as much time as is necessary to discuss their concerns. My staff and I strive to provide transparent, honest, and fair care for every client. I will never discharge any patient from my care and will gladly see them for as long as they wish. I whole-heartedly appreciate the trust and faith clients place in our hands in when choosing us.

Dr. Nanavati and his staff are wonderful. I had carpal tunnel surgery in my right hand in 2015 and did well. I just had my much needed left hand done this past Friday and the Doctor was so kind and very reassuring. He replaced my 78 year old father's shoulder 3 years ago and he did great. You...more

WARNING: If you see this dr (or any dr located at Mercy hospital), and he does any type of procedure, you will basically be charged twice (once by the dr, and again by the hospital). I waited almost 2 hours in the waiting room, and saw the dr. for less than 15 mins. At that time, he aspirated a...more

I am sorry this nice person experienced such difficulties during their visit. I am very sorry for the time spent waiting to be seen. We have made adjustments to address this problem. I am very aware of the quality and demands on a client's time. I am sorry the cyst came back despite our initial effort for aspiration in the hopes of avoiding a surgical procedure. I was unaware of the billing concerns. My staff will be happy to investigate & rectify. Please do contact our office.

I was kept waiting in his offic for over two hours. I understand emergencies arise, however, the lateness was not addressed. He spent a total of less than 5 minutes with me and was very short-tempered.

It is with sadness that I read this review. I never wish for any patient to feel shorted by their visit. We do our best to accommodate every patient's need. I do not recall ever spending only 5 mins with any patient in my 11 years in practice; but I am sorry this was the experience they perceived. We do run late at times as we are trying to give our patients the time they need. What may be viewed as short tempered is often honesty; still, I apologize to this patient for their experience.
