About Dr. Satya Vikram Jayanty

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

Had been over 5ive years since my last colonoscopy and met with Dr. V. S. Jayanty to discuss some other issuesrelated to my system. I have been a patient of Dr. Jayanty for over 20 years and he is very professional, knowledgeable and was told by a nurse years ago that "he has the softest hands" when doing the procedure. I have never had any problems thanks toDr. Jayanty's care.

All personnel are great. I was treated very well and I received recommendations about how to change my diet to improve my stomach. The waiting time in my first visit was too long. After waiting for 1 hr, without receiving any information why I was waiting, I cancelled and rescheduled. My schedule is too busy to sit in a Doctors office and wait for 1 hr. Else, everything was great and I can highly recommend this Doctor and his staff.

There was no exam or procedure today. He just explained the results of the recent colonoscopy and give advice (take Metamucil daily and have some fat with breakfast). Follow-up in 5 years.

Doctor is a good guy but wait time was way too long including having to make the actual colonoscopy appt. Bizarre having them do a cursory checkup when I just had my annual physical with my GP. Why doesn’t he use in-network medical personnel?

Dr. Jayanty is extremely knowledgeable in his medical profession. I feel very comfortable in his care and in the care of his staff. They too are always professional and knowledgeable of my health issues. As the spouse of an Army retired three star general,we have moved over twenty five times, and have had several physicians all over the United States as well as Oconus, but I have never met a physician or staff as warm an caring as Dr. Jayanty's. He is not only a good and caring doctor, he is a great leader who has a wonderful staff who knows how to treat his patients. Thank you Dr. Jayanty and your entire staff. I thank God for you. Wish there were other physicians and staff members like you all

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.
