The doctor is OK, but does not respond to emails in timely manner. Also, he never contracts me with my blood test results. And I had issues, so it was pretty unprofessional. Overall, I think he just cares about changing insurance,but not really about patients. Since I am relatively healthy, this is OK for me, but would never recommend him to anybody else.

Dr. Venkat is thorough and to the point. I used to work close to his Fulton Street location and most of my co-workers were patients of his. He is good with follow up and listens. I highly recommend him.

Just not fully put together. I just needed a simple physical form filled out. He ignored all of the information I'd carefully put into Zoc Doc, and asked the same questions again - while he handwrote the same information on tohis internal form, before then writing it on to the form I actually needed. Turned a simple document into an hour -long process. He ignored my multiple requests to just fill out the part of the form I actually needed instead of doing all this. Then, he botched the blood draw he took for some test. When i yelled in pain because he couldn't find the vein, he just threw out the third, empty vial. I hope my employer doesn't require whatever the third test was supposed to be! Finally, I had to ask multiple times to give me the required form my employer required. I pointed out that he'd already completed that section - I was v seriously considering just taking a cellphone pic of it and bolting out!

His office referred me to a specialist that did not take my insurance. additionally, the doctor said he wanted to take a blood sample to establish a baseline, which I know is routine, it seemed unnecessary for my health issue. Alsoinstead of taking my pulse and temperature, he just wrote them in on the form.

This is the worst doctor visit I ever had. I went in for immigration testing. The initial visit was okay and quick, but when I came at the scheduled time to pick up my result, I was told Dr. Venkat wasnot in the office and I had to wait for over 2 hours for him to come during holiday time. However, this was not it. I was told to give my health insurance information at the time of appointment even though this is not an insurance covered expense and I paid out of pocket all the fees. Then after 4 months of my appointment, I received a bill from a blood lab asking me for unpaid charges for blood test. In the bill, it also showed that my insurance also got charge for blood test done on my behalf. I called the lab and asked what happened. They told me, Dr. Venkat office submitted my blood test not as an immigration test which required only 4 items to be checked but as a full-blown regular blood test with over 10 items checked. I called Dr. Venkat office and they said they would take care of this. However, in March, I got a reminder from the lab that the charge was still pending. I had to contact Dr. Venkat office again to try to get this resolved. This is still an ongoing issue which I have no idea what happened.

When I arrive the facility, I wasn't especially welcomed. After waiting for 25min, I went came to the counter, and then finally asked me the regular questions. After my consultation, it seems like they switched, because they became extremelynice, so it ended it up great. Don't sty on your first impression because everybody can have a low moment/mood. About the doctor, I think he was very professional. No chitchat, no BS, but this is question of personal matter. I really appreciated that he did all the exams himself, as a real doctor should do, you know the traditional way. I have another appointment scheduled in a week, ad if everything goes well, Dc Venkat will definitely be my general doctor.

He didn't clean his hands with hand sanitizer or put gloves on before taking blood (after writing with a pen at his desk) and I was thoroughly disturbed. I regret not putting a stop to it all. I'm not even surewhy he took blood, given that I came in with Traveler's Diarrhea. And everyone I know that has ever had TD just received a prescription, no blood test necessary.
