Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Jayanty is and excellent and personable Doctor. HIs staff and nurses are excellent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
He is very experienced, gentle and friendly doctor.
Very caring Doctor and staff. Keep up the great work.
I was the first patient of the day. The staff was very friendly and were very helpful. Made sure all my needs and questions were addressed. They seem to really enjoy working there.
Dr. Jayanty is a true GenIus and really takes the time to understand what the patient is experiencing and going through. My family have been going to Dr. Jayanty for years - and he is truly the best at what he does. The staff and nurses are also very supportive, compassionate, and go above and beyond the call of duty to help and facilitate patients.
We were there 1'15" before the appointment, so we did have to wait, because they take you in order of the appointment. We just didn't want to be in heavy traffic on the way and be late. Overall, we were very pleased with the service.
Speedy and very professional.
Everyone was great!
my visit was a wonderful health experience.Thanks.
I met with the assisstant today, not Dr Jayanty
Effie the nurse was super fantastic! She was able to inject the IV needle on top of my hand first time with NO pain. And believe me my veins are very hard to inject an IV in. She was very sweet and nice. Doctor was very nice also
I had an in office colonoscopy that was quick, comfortable and the staff was very helpful. The only negative aspect of my colonoscopy came when I arranged for the colonoscopy. I met with Dr. Vikram and then met with an office assistant regarding insurance. Since Dr. Vikram was an in-network doctor, I was annoyed to find out at the end of all the arrangements that his anesthesiologist was out of network which meant I was responsible for a significant expense I wasn't expecting. Since I'd already met with the doctor, arranged for the colonoscopy and signed all the paperwork, I chose not to back out and start the whole process again.
I was running late for my appointment and called to let them know. I was treated very well from the front desk, to the nurse that weighed me, to being consulted by Danielle. I was sitting waiting for the insurance lady when Dr. Jayanty saw me and engaged me with conversation. I thought that was very nice of him as he made me feel like I was one of his favorite patients. I would recommend the team to all my friends.
I had a colonoscopy and the nurses explained everything thoroughly and were quite patient with all of my questions. The office is run efficiently. Highly recommend.
Doctor was very informative and easy to discuss health issues with The only reason I believe it took over 30 minutes for the wait time I was a new patient had to complete the initial paperwork other than that the patient seem to be in and out at a timely fashion.
Everyone in this office is great. My questions are always answered and I leave feeling informed.
Pleasurable experience. New procedure but the staff made me comfortable.
Everyone in this office is great. I had a lot of questions and each one was considered and answered. Highly recommend.
Very profesional doctor
Only had about ten words exchanged with Dr. Jayanty.......procedure was fine.....I was asleep!!!
Great Assistant and staff..they make you feel at home. Thanks!
Dr Jayanty and his staff are both caring and professional. My appointment was at 1:00, I was out by 2:15. The staff makes you feel comfortable from the welcoming receptionist to the discharging nurse and everyone in between! I highly recommend Dr Jayanty!
I trust Dr. Jayanty competely, my best doctor. Visiting the office does not present any problems, it is quick, and paperwork is at a minimum and the staff is great.
I was very impressed with the office staff and Dr. Jayanty. Everyone was highly professional and efficient and made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. Dr. Jayanty helped me with my problem. I would highly recommend him and his office to anyone needing a gastroenterologist.
I wound up seeing his P>A.She was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions perfectly She will make an excellent Dr. soon.
It was typically the easiest visit I had
This was my first visit. I think everyone was very friendly, they greet you with a smile and introduce them seft,i felt the love there, and i was just smiling. The doctor made sure i understood what she was saying, she was not rushing and she didn't get frustrated with me, do to my hard of hearing..And i just want to thank all of Dr Satya Vikram Jayanty staff for a good job they doing.
I was totally surprised by how quick I got in and out. The people are very helpful, and I totally enjoyed their professional courtesy, and making me feel like I was important. Thanks you are so good and friendly!!!
Staff was highly professional and caring. Margaret, Effie, Celestine, receptionist (nice sense of humor!) and the nurse anesthetist, who made sure I didn't wake up, as I did during prior colonoscopies w a different doc. Dr. Jayanty is careful and very pleasant. I highly recommend this practice.
The online forms I filled in never got to the office. Had to repeat everything.
Ok but long wal time
Excellent- the staff and the doctor are always attentive and make you feel as if you are the only patient!
The PA was very good ask a lot of questions and did a good job explaining things to me the Dr. I like very well also
Everyone is wonderful. I just did not like all the waiting.
Procedure went well and fast. Was over before I knew it.
This is the first time that I met with Dr. Jayanty. I felt that he listened to what I had to say and evaluated my symptoms with the information on hand. I believe he cares for his patients. I felt that I was in good hands.
I like the welcoming smile from all staff, the pre-check by the nurse was good, pre-check by assistance doctor was professional and the doctor was so convening.
I liked my new doctor as well as his staff.
Very pleasant staff. My 3rd procedure with Dr. Jayanty; all have gone very well.
Very professional. I am looking forward to treatment from him! Lynn C
Staff is helpful and caring! Dr. Jayanty is great! Always a good experience when I have an appointment. I have never waited more than 15 to 20 minutes.
Very nice. He gets down to business, yet he can take a joke.
The doctor listen to everything i had to say about my health issues. Was very knowledgeable about what is going on with me. So far my experience was great!!
Extremely professional staff. Very clean preop room. Excellent anesthesia. No side effects. Dr. Jayanty spoke w me before and after procedure. He took time to answer questions
Very friendly Doctor.
Made the procedure stress free
Details of my visit was not recorded. They told me they would book a follow-up appointment, but when I heard nothing I contacted them and they said my patient record was blank.
Excellent bedside manner
I have been a patient of his for over 5-10 years. He is very friendly and takes the time to explain your condition. I trust him professional opinion. I have referred several patients to him. I also enjoy his staff.
I was well-satisfied with everything that went on, especially with the doctor informing me of all the things . Doctor jayanty was friendly and courteous. He cares for his patients. That means so much.
Both prep appointment and actual procedure were handled quite well. Doctor and staff were professional, courteous and efficient.
The doctor was professional but the wait in the waiting area took an hour n a half
Dr. Jayanty has been our doctor for years. He came highly recommended by another of our doctors who is also a patient of Dr. Jayanty's. We have recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. He is warm, compassionate and very professional. His office and nursing staff are also very good. I would go nowhere else!
I told them that I need colonoscopy when I made appointment. They never mention anything to me. Till the time after this consultation,the Secretary told me that the anesthesiologist is not in network and I have to pay a large sum of money extra that I didn't expected to pay under my insurance plan. It wasted my time and money for this consultation. I wish they can warn me about out of network cost when I book the appointment.
He did what he says going to do and wants to do more to find out what is wrong with me.
Very Professional and Competant Staff... Clean office and well staffed...
Dr. Jayanty has a calming and kind bedside manner. His packed waiting room showed that he is well liked.
I have seen Dr. Jayanty many times and each time was very professional. Recommend him to my friends.
LIKE I HAVE SAID BEFORE HE IS THE CONSUMATE dOCTOR
I did not even see him before or after the colonoscopy. However, I was still very impressed with him at the initial consult and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I could not have had a better procedure than the one Dr. Jayanty did on 08/31/2015. He is tha consummate Professiional I knew ahead what he was going to do at my procedure and after he gave complete written instructions for my recovery I would recomend him to anyone who needs his type of MEDICINE AND CARE
I have been a patient with Dr. Jayanty for a long time. I trust him very much.
Dr Jayanty is very good and has an excellent reputation. He is obviously doing something right or he wouldn't have that many patients.
Dr, is excellent caring professional.I appreciate his care,
Total time of appointment was ~2.5 hours for about 5 minutes with the doctor...not an acceptable level of service.
Top rate across the board!
Dr J and his staff are true pros. Big Kudos to all the nurses, who are very professional and yet kind as needed. THANK YOU
They made me feel like one of the family. Never felt like just a number. Highly recommended to anyone. Thank you very much,
VERY PROFESSIONAL AND WELL MANNERED.
Everybody there was pleasant to deal with, kept me informed of what was happening or about to happen.
The doctor and staff members showed professionalism and treated their patients well.
Not satisfied at all, all he want to do is to do an endoscopy without asking much about the history of my problem. However, I told him my diet habits, previous diagonosis and almost 5 years of history which may be linked to my problem. But, I think he listened without paying much attention. Later on, I found that my problem don't even need endoscopy and by simply avoiding some foods I am doing better than ever. I also had to wait for taking endoscopy appointment for over 30 mins extra and I had to ask what is going on and after I got up from my chair to show dissatisfaction about wait time, then only someone took me inside for endoscopy appointment. I wanted to make sure that I really need it, like many tests I did in past (with other specialist) wasting my time.
the visit was very good@ the stafff was excelient!!
This doctor was ok, but I was not impressed by any means. I visited their office for the first time because I've had acid reflux for years, and medications are no longer working. The doctor spoke to me briefly about my history with the reflux and what medicines I had been taking. Then he suggested we set up a time to do an upper GI scope and a PH monitor. My appt was on Monday, March 2nd and it is now March 18th and I still have not heard back from them about this procedure. I called last thursday to find out if the procedure was covered, but the nurse who schedules surgeries was unable to find my chart. She said she would check to see if it was on the doctor's desk and would call me back. It's been 4 business days since I called and I still haven't received a return call. I don't think this is a professional way to conduct business. I will still get the procedure done if I can get someone to give me an answer, but like I said before, I just wasn't impressed with this doctor and the office. I will say at least, that the staff was friendly.
The Doctor and his staff were excellent.
Dr. Jayanty was very thorough; it was the best experience with a GI doctor yet.
I appreciated the fact that Dr. J looked me straight in the eyes when speaking to me. he was not checking his phone or reading my charts. He genuinely listened to my concerns and took notes on everything I said. He addressed everything in question, explained everything very clearly, and treated me with concern and compassion. His staff are all very nice and they happily answered all of my questions.
The front desk lady,was not like.She greeded everyone else but me. When peoples came in,she said hello.But went I came in,she did not spreak.
It was painful, went in for colonoscopy, the nurse had trouble finding my vein for an IV and poke me twice, it was painful
It all went well and in a timely matter..
This was my first visit with Dr. Jayanty, and I must say that I left totally confident that I made an excellent health care choice. Going forward I know that I will be well cared for and valued as a patient.
Was late seeing me, a bit on the cold side, too matter of fact. No option for questions from me.
It went very well, as usual. I have always been impressed with Dr. Jayanty's professionalism and ability to diagnose my problems.
First visit, but pleased with it at this point.
All very professional and good bedside manner.
Awful bedside manner. The doctor came off as cold and indifferent to my concerns. He looked mildly annoyed when I asked him questions about my condition, and gave me short, dismissive answers with no details. The old lady at the front desk is also rather rude.
Pleasant and comfortable
Checked via ZocDoc but did no good. Also, Doc might know medicine but his bedside manner is terrible.
Very thorough and knowledgeable. I have been seeing Dr Jayanty for 20 yrs. He is an excellent doctor in my opinion.
He was very professional very knowledgeable and very attentive to all my questions and concerns will recommend him highly
My visit went smoothly.
We're tryinng to get rid of my muscle spams after resection surgery 05/09.
I feel very confident in Dr. Jayanty.
my colonoscopy procedure went very well no problem
Easy visit. Didn't mind waiting before the procedure. Thank you.
He is a very nice doctor and he does very good work. Also, the staff is very nice too.
I like the treatment they also explain what was going to happen I like that Thank you for treating me with respect.
Dr. Jayanty is a gentle man with a very good manner. His staff is superb! I have never met a group of women that worked so well together and enjoy each other's time together. My nurse Fatima was also very great. One of the best nurses I ever had. She was caring and made sure I was ok when she saw how nervous I was. I can't remember the rest of the women's names but I am grateful for the team effort they put together to make my visit very comfortable.
He is a very kind and understanding Dr. He explained everything to me in detail and answered all my questions with respect.

Dr. Jayanty is the pro's pro!! He is a great listener, a competent practitioner who diagnoses the problem and makes astute suggestions and recommendations!! I feel very comfortable with this healer!
Excellant. No complaints at all. Staff were super nice and friendly.
I really enjoy the convenience of being able to make appointments even on weekends. If your are experiencing GI problems over the weekend you can get the earliest .available on Monday, or any day, by using ZocDoc
He was excellent!
His staff was great....He was excellent

Knowledgeable; Compassionate; Excellent physician.
Excellent bedside manner. Knowledgeable.
Dr. Jayanty is simply amazing. He takes the time to listen to his patients so he can effectively diagnose what is wrong with them. He is the best doctor ever! Thanks.
Very helpful and humorous.
He is very professional, excellent doctor, and spends time answering your questions, etc. You never feel rushed!
On time and professional, yet also warm and personal.
He was very nice and he got me an appointment to get my issues resolved right away.
Wow. I didn't think doctors like Dr. Jayanty still existed. Not only was he warm and personable, but he spent plenty of time with me, asking detailed questions and listening to my answers and concerns. Another doctor had prescribed a colonoscopy after spending just five minutes with me, but Dr. Jayanty didn't feel that was necessary, and prescribed a more measured (and far less costly) approach. It's clear that Dr. Jayanty cares more for his patients' health than the bottom line. His office and staff help to create an atmosphere that feels more like a small-town family doctor, which is another reason why I highly recommend Dr. Jayanty.
Came in for a prescription refill and he tried to get me to do an expensive and invasive procedure before he would refill - wouldn't even give me a couple weeks worth to get me by until the procedure. I did not feel like I was being listened to - I said the only food that doesn't bother me was fruit and he responded "Maybe you have a fruit allergy." I felt like he did not believe me when I told him my symptoms. Very disconcerting.
Great initial appointment for a colonoscopy. But day of procedure, doctor wasn't there, rather a bait and switch substitute i had never meet. Although procedure was covered by fortune 500 healthcare plan, administrator demanded full out of pocket up front payment. Took several months to be reimbursed. Was going to charge for the post procedure analysis, so I refrained from attending. Overall dismal service for a critical procedure, imho.
Awnsered all my questions
Frank, accurate, appears to really know his field. I asked numerous questions, all were answered.
Doctor asked my history and asked many questions and keen was knowing my health history better.
Dr. Jayanty was very professional, patient and kind. He listened to everything I had to say and understood how I felt. Wonderful experience!
Dr. Jayanty was very professional,thorough and easy to talk with to discuss your medical condition. I highly recommend Dr. Jayanty.
I would highly recommend Dr. Jayanty, he asked questions that revealed some things I didn't even realized were important, he also listened and responded to my own questions with a lot of patience. Great visit. Just waiting for the lab results to go back.
I never have high expectations these days for doctors' bedside manner. THat being said Dr. Jayanty was pleasant, asked many questions and seemed concerned to look at the big picture and not just give a prescription. I appreciate that. He was friendly and thorough.
