Dr. Satya Vikram Jayanty, MD

Gastroenterologist

Professional statement

Dr Jayanty completed his training in Internal Medicine, as well as his Fellowship in Gastroenterology, at the University of Louisville. He began practicing in Houston in 1983 at Memorial City Hospital (where he continues to practice to this day). Much of his practice consists of diagnosis and treatment of colitis, cancer, biliary and pancreatic diseases in adolescents and adults, but he cares for many other ailments pertaining to the stomach, gallbladder, colon, small intestine, and liver. The doctor is also very involved in education of young doctors. His association with both the Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas has provided invaluable guidance to the next generation of gastroenterological professionals. Dr. Jayanty is constantly looking for new breakthroughs in his field. To that end, he performs research and clinical trials at the state-of-the-art endoscopy suite contained in his offices. The doctor believes strongly in second opinions, and if there are any doubts concerning your diagnosis, he will be more than willing to refer you to another physician. The doctor is a “people person” and enjoys listening to and interacting with his patients. He is interested in both your medical and your personal history, since these two factors seem to be intertwined in most cases. Dr. Jayanty believes that communication with patients improves his ability to understand their medical problems and to be a successful practitioner. Dr. Jayanty’s father and sister are also physicians, and he is proud to continue in this family tradition of helping people to heal. Married for forty one years to his lovely wife Teresa, they have six children. In his spare time, the doctor enjoys tennis, long distance bicycling and is an avid reader. He would welcome you as a patient and looks forward to providing you with the best in medical care.

Visit was professional. Suggest not playing news channels in the waiting room. Too much negative talk about people. Suggest one of the online music channels like Soundscapes. Relaxing music, positive quotes to start your day of on a pleasant note.

Can't really say too much about my visit. I slept through the entire procedure. Having colonoscopy done at Dr. Jayanty's clinic rather than a hospital was of great benefit. Saved time, money and much more convenient. Highly recommend.

Overall experience was good with the doctor and nurses who helped with my procedure today. However, very unpleasant experience woth the front desk old lady. We waited more than an hour ( appointment time was at 8:30am and around 9:30 weasked how longer we needed to wait to the receptionist and she abruptly said not to ask her that kind of question. What a customer service. My friend came with me today but because of front desk’s mean and bad service she decided not to make her appointment there. ( she was planning to see a doctor there bit changed her mind)

So I don’t know if his diagnosis is yet correct. I’m going back in 4 weeks to see him. But he made it with confidence and gave a lot of great explanation around it so I am optimistic.

It was my first visit with this doctor and so far the only complaint I have so far it's the anesthesiologist that he uses is out of network with my insurance making me have to pay out of my pocket andhis office is not willing to call my insurance to get an authorization for them to cover it. The nurse's remark was for me to change doctor.
