Verified Patient Reviews
very thorough; good at explanations
I'm extremely pleased, he is thorough, a great listener,a nd informative.
I was taken inside at exact appointment time and he is very concerned. And he explained the follow up procedure. My first experience with him was very very good.
I feel the doctor truly cares for my well being and only gives me advice with explanations as well for that advice.
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.
He was really nice, easy to understand, and thorough
Very personable. Extremely easy to talk to. Had to bring my ten month old with me and he had no problems with an infant crawling around his exam room. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a GI doctor.
Great bedside manner and took the time to thoroughly talk through the issues I was concerned with.
Awesome doctor. Epitome of his profession. General consultation. Went on to do colonoscopy in his Mt. Vernon office. From front to back staff orchestrates like a symphony. Very sterile professional envi r moment. Post op "Mira" great hands. Surgical nurses awesome. Preop man first to see kind, compassionate, awesome. Best staff front to rear. And, the doctor is a gem! My surgery went well. No complications. See you in 10 years. Happy New Year! Thank you. ????
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 nice guy. Unlike too many medical offices, the front desk and scheduling staff are also highly competent and efficient so no worries over scheduling etc.
Visit was brief, but he was more than happy to explain the reasoning behind each decision, as well as the science of my condition.
This was my first time at this site very nice the staff great . I had issues and my mind was wondering all over the place what was next. Then Dr V. sat with me and Recommended what I should my blood preasure went down by 30 points He was so kind, nice and understood this senior guy Very Positive Professional with an upbet attitude Just about did not want to leave. Good Job Doc.

I? selected Dr. Vamadevan based on the positive reviews I? read and they were spot on! I? would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a GI doctor!
He is very knowledgeable and sympathetic professional. Explains every thing about health concerns of Patient in a very confident manner. Patient's feeling that he is in safe & professional hands heals half of illness.
One of the nicest and most thoughtful doctors I've ever met. I highly recommend him.
Dr, Vamdevan took the time to listen to my concerns and offered suggestions on things not related to why I was there. He has a very comforting bedside manner and put me at ease immediately. I am very pleased my Doctor referred me to him and looking forward to a long professional association with him.
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 about taking things conservatively and overall he had such a nice rapport with my son.
Dr. Vamadevan was extremely knowledgeable, professional & nice! I highly recommend him. He's awesome!
Excellent experience. Very knowledgeable Doctor. Good and comfortable approach to my health issue Highly recommend this Doctor.
Excellent.explained everything so I didn't have any concerns about tests or treatment plan o
Excellent experience overall. Dr. Vamadevan is patient, thorough, informative, a great listener, and for my 8AM appointment was very timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Vamadevan, and was not disappointed when I had high expectations thanks to a slew of excellent reviews here on ZocDoc.
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 recommendations on 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!
Really good in everything! I would high recomended this doctor.
To give five stars is not enough. Dr Arunan was his staff was very polite, professional and his level of expertice surpaces some of other medical practitioners I have seen before. Extremely satisfied with the results he is very caring and approachable. I truly appreciate his treatment now I have a trusted Doctor to rely uppon. Thanks a lot sincerely.
He's a great, easy to talk to you. Very professional.
It was excellent and he provided great service. I will be going back to him.
Dr Vamadevan was very friendly and concerning of my health.
Very nice and informative. Great dr!
Very professional and personable
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 usual perfunctory 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.
I was impressed with the waiting time and I thought Dr V was very professional I will highly recommend your office .
I was able to get an appointment relatively quickly and had no wait time when I arrived. He was pleasant and professional. I will see how the procedure (colonoscopy) goes.
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 with me with more recent findings and mentioned other current procedures currently being developed. I was very happy with my visit.
Dr. Vamadevan is one of the best doctors I have seen in years! He saw me promptly, and listened patiently and carefully as I described my symptoms. Excellent bedside manner, very friendly, and professional. It is refreshing to meet a physician these days who seems to truly care about helping his patients feel better, who really listens and doesn't rush you out the door. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a doctor in this field.
Very helpful and attentive to daughter's problem. Took action and made recommendations right away. Friendly and professional
He was quick and thorough. Pleasant personality and knows what he's about.
Wish all doctors visits were like this -- was taken in exactly at my appointment time and Dr. Vamadevan was extremely pleasant, understanding and helpful. Look forward to working with him on treatment.
Dr. Vamadevan is a great doctor and listener. After being blown off by so many doctors, he actually took me seriously and listened to all my issues. My only complaint is he didn't take the time to speak with my parent after my procedure, but I understand that he's busy!
I had asked the receptionist to be present in the room with the doctor and my father at his consultation. She assured me that was fine and that he would not be called in to his appointment right away, necause there were some patients ahead of him. I decided this would give me the time I needed to go get some medical records that my father had forgotten at home. Long story short, my father was called into the appointment before I could get back in time and spoke to Dr. Vamadevan without me present, even though this was my expressed wish to the front desk staff. My father proceeded to give Dr. Vamadevan inaccurate medical history information which has resulted in my father being scheduled for an upper GI endoscopy procedure, when I believe based on his medical history, symptoms and my own personal medical training, his problem lies more with his lower GI system. Therefore, I believe he needs an additional procedure to evaluate his lower GI system and not just the upper GI endoscopy.
He was so nice. Makes you feel super comfortable and he is funny. Awesome Doctor highly recommend!!
The office staff are amazing! My visit was great, Dr. Vamadevan spent quality time with me discussing my situation, was extremely attentive and put me at ease.
He was excellent and so was his staff. The only drawback I found was that the procedure I needed could not be scheduled for 6 weeks.
He was really knowledgeable. And talked to me about all my concerns. He answered all my questions and created a plan to help me I feel comfortable with.
BEST DOCTOR HANDS DOWN
Though my wait was longer than I would have liked, my appointment with Dr. Vamadevan was great. He has a wonderful way of speaking with you that shows he's interested in your concerns, knowledgeable, and still approachable when you're asking questions.
It was a positive visit, and after his consultancy I'm very hopeful that I'll be cured.
I was nervous about my appointment but Dr. Vanadevan was fantastic and put me at ease. He was easy to talk to and took time to understand the issues I was dealing with. I would highly recommend him.
He was very professional and courteous. Gave excellent explanation of issues and allowed ample time for questions.
My impression for my first visit was that the staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. I felt comfortable with Dr. Vamadevan. He was a great listener, analytic and offered valued suggestions. He was the third G.I. Doctor I've gone to in the past two years and he is the one I'll be working with for some time I suspect.
Efficient, friendly staff. Wait time was minimal. Dr. Vamadevan was friendly, efficient, and took time asking questions and explaining diagnosis and procedures to be performed. Very impressed with visit.
The front office staff members were friendly and efficient. The doctor was highly approachable and took the time to get to know me as well as giving me a full overview of potential tests and treatments for my problem.
I highly recommend Dr. Vamadevan. He is very professional and answered all of my questions. The check-in process went smoothly and the staff was very attentive and caring.
Dr. V was great. He was kind and very understanding. He took the time time to not only answer all of my questions, but also make me feel comfortable with my procedure. On top of this he's a great guy too, actually asking questions about me to make the whole dr visit smoother.
I will return, I like him, he's very friendly easy to talk with.
The actual customer service was very good, meaning that the waiting time and politeness of the staff was great, they were all friendly. However, I do not feel the doctor took my concerns seriously, or listened fully to what I was saying. He refused many of the tests that I asked to be done because he has a protocol that he would like to follow and it seemed a certain number of times he wanted to bill my insurance before getting to the root of the problem. He flat out told me that the symptoms I described did not sound like gastroenterological problems but having followed up with another doctor, I was able told that they were.
Friendly, attentive. I would visit again.
It was great. He listened to me to tell him about everything. He was so helpful.
