Dr. Vamadevan came in shortly after.Often, doctors office visits can be very stressful but he wasvery nice and comforting about what I was going through. Highly recommend this office and Dr. Vamadevan!

I don't know where to begin: friendly staff, no wait in lobby, nice and comfy facility. I walked in clueless about my medical conditions going on and I walked out feeling like I was in good hands. I have tests tofollow up with to figure out what's going on, but my initial visit was great! No other doctor could give me specifics on what it could be wrong with me, but Dr. Vamadevan listed all of the red flags from my symptoms as well as telling me what could be wrong with me. He was very informative, unlike any other place I visited.

Highly qualified and well studied. He listens, takes notes, spends time and makes educated, careful decisions. He discusses the anatomy, cause and effect, and genuinely wants to find the root cause rather than pushing pills or unnecessary procedures. One of the best physicians I've seen.

Hard to judge a gastroenterologist knowing little to nothing about gastroenterology myself, but Dr Vamadevan definitely inspires confidence. He answers questions easily and clearly, is very professional and seems like a relateable niceguy. Unlike too many medical offices, the front desk and scheduling staff are also highly competent and efficient so no worries over scheduling etc.

I brought my son to see Dr. Vamadevan. My son is 25 and has special needs. I loved how the doctor knew enough about my son's underlying condition that I did not have to educate him I like his approach abouttaking things conservatively and overall he had such a nice rapport with my son.

Dr. Vamadevan is a member of team Associates In Gastroenterology! A GREAT group of GI professionals. I highly recommend this group of doctors if you are looking for a gastroenterologist. He reviewed my symptoms, made some recommendationson current medications, provided an order for ultrasound, then we agreed on a plan-of-action based on the results we get back from the tests. I KNOW I am in good hands. Thank you Dr. Vamadevan and AiG!

I barely had time to sign in before I got taken back by a nurse - and I mean that as a good thing, as I didn't have to suffer through any wait at all. After the nurse asked the usualperfunctory questions and checked my blood pressure/weight, I saw Dr. Vamadevan almost immediately. He covered the topics I needed thoroughly and never made me feel rushed. I got to go over my concerns without any feeling that the doctor wasn't really listening and trying to solve the problems.

Dr. Vamadevan was very prompt; I didn't even have time to finish the new patient paperwork before he began our visit. He was very knowledgeable about the most recent advances in endoscopic surgery and supplemented the knowledge I brought withme with more recent findings and mentioned other current procedures currently being developed. I was very happy with my visit.
