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.

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. ????

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.

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.

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 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!

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.
