Verified Patient Reviews
I went to see the Dr. Asamoah. After waiting for a while, she came to see me and asked me what I was there for. She forgot she would do a surgical procedure for me. Then she told me she was not prepared to do it, as she only does it in the morning. Then she sent me away and charged me a huge amount.
Dr. Asamoah listened to me, took notes and then precisely responded to my concerns. I am feeling very comfortable with her plan of treatment for me. I would recommend friends and family to Dr. Asamoah.
I loved the doctor!! Outstanding personality and outstanding communication.

Very easy to discuss issues and explains things well.
Dr. Asamoah is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I always feel like I am going to visit a friend instead of a doctor. When I first went to see her I was feeling really ill, but with her expertise she got be back on my feet and feeling really good again. I can't thank her enough. She gets a 5+ star rating from me.
This is my first visit with Dr. Asamoah. I very much liked her manner and professionalism. Her review of my file and questioning seemed thorough. With all the many aches and pains I am having she came up with a course of action and we are proceeding forward. I feel that I am in good hands. I also liked her staff a lot. They are also very friendly, helpful and communicative.
I just went for the initial consultation for a colonoscopy. Everyone in the office was pleasant and professional. I can tell I am in very good hands!
I drive across town to see Dr Asamoah. She was recommended by my GP of over 18 years. She’s been our specialist for 5 years. My wife & I look forward to our visits! We’re impressed with her skills and knowledge.

Wait was a little too long but doc and staff were wonderful.
My visit with Dr Asamoah was informative. She showed a concern in my well being. She did just try to give me some medicine. She didn't mind saying if she didn't know something, but did her best explaining in terms I can understand.
She is very good with patients. Great communicator with good bedside manner. Highly recommend her and her staff.
Dr. Asamoah is amazing and her team is wonderful!! Would highly recommend her practice.
Dr. Asamoah was very professional, as always. She has all information up-to-date and gives me time to ask questions and/or offer feedback. She does not rush through the visit, but does not waste time either. I like the doctor very much and will continue seeing her if necessary.
I became a patient of Dr Asamoah while still on active duty. I retired from the military in 2014 and still a patient of Dr Asamoah. She has done several procedures on me which has help me to maintain good health. I had wonderful follow up visit with Dr. Asamoah. She explain all of my lab results and answer all questions I had with a warm smile. She even provide me with additional information for optimum health. Thank you Dr. Asamoah Johnny P
Dr. Asamoah always shows the ultimate concern for my care. She takes the time to listen to what my symptoms are and treats accordingly. I have complete confidence in her ability to diagnosis the problem and find the right solution for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know that had a gastrointestinal issue.
I absolutely love Asamoah! She takes her time during each visit and has greatly helped me!
I love the staff and the doc! She is so good att making sure you understand everything about your condition and quick to order labs or tests that might help explain what's going on. I'm so happy I found Dr. Asamoah!
It was very refreshing to have a doctor be genuine and actually listen to me. She was very lively and I enjoyed the appointment very much. Got the answers I came for. Can't wait for my follow up.
I didn't mind waiting a little - it was hugely convenient to have a Saturday morning appointment! Everyone on staff was wonderful - really listened, prepared with information and super helpful. I am extremely pleased with our plan & path forward.
Easy to talk to. Very knowledgeable and compassionate professional. Accommodated my needs. I left feeling assured that I am in good hands.
This is he first time that I met DR V-I found her to be very warm-she had a smile in her voice-was very processional while being friendly-she listened to my situations & asked questions for clarification & explained what options-what a wonderful doctor & person !!!!!I
Dr. Asamoah was extremely knowledgeable and seemed very thorough in her questioning of my symptoms. She made me feel comfortable when talking about sensitive things I was experiencing. She was quick and efficient, but didn't rush things and made me feel like a real person.
This was a consultation for my wife and I in preparation for routine colonoscopies. The visit was smooth and the Dr. was very professional yet genuine and friendly...THUMBS UP!
She's great ! Easy to talk with and give great advice!
Nice first visit with Dr. Asamoah. She was patient and listened to me, great bedside manner. She was also very solution oriented and I walked away with a plan for my treatment. Lucky to have found her.
Short wait, good communication, and the most reasonable fee for a procedure I have heard of.
The wait was short,maybe 10 to 15 minutes. Dr. Asamoah's bedside manners were at hte very top. I am completely confident in her abilities.
I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Asamoah! Although I had to wait a little, she spent a great deal of time with me, and she made certain that I understood everything. I highly recommend her!
I love Dr V, and hv already recommended her to a friend of mine. She is awesome!! Can't say more than that!!!
Very informative. She took alot of time with us. Answered all our questions.
I am completely satisfied that I am in capable hands.
I looked around a long time for a doctor that I was comfortable with, and Dr. Asamoah was worth the wait. I appreciated how precise her questions were -- not general "how are you feeling" types of questions. I also like how she's not quick to prescribe (which may cover up an issue) vs. figuring out how to reverse an issue. Yes, there was a wait (20 min), but while I was with her I appreciated not feeling like I was in a revolving door. Very kind, patient, and thorough -- what I want in a doctor.
Good hoping for a good outcome
Dr. Asamoah has been very good in trying get to the root of my problems, which I appreciate. I feel confident in her abilities as a gastroenterologist to be able to diagnose and treat my issues. I also like that she takes a conservative approach and doesn't just prescribe an antibiotic if it's not necessary.
Dr. Asamoah was very professional and willing to work with me.
Quick in and out great staff and everyone was polite and professional
She was great and I think she was friendly.
Professional, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She also has Saturday appointments.
Very thorough and took her time to make sure I was properly treated.
I had seen another specialist recently and decided to switch, due to a bad experience with his staff. I thought the previous doctor was fine, but now that I have met with Dr. Asamoah and her staff, I realize that fine is not enough. So glad I switched doctors. She explained everything clearly and makes you feel comfortable. The rest of her staff is also excellent.
I appreciated Dr. Asamoah's professionalism and the discussion we had to devise a plan to get to the root of my issues. The only negative thing I have to say, is that I had to wait over 30 minutes to get to a room and then waited another 15 minutes before I saw the doctor, so my entire time there was an hour and a half.
Dr. Asamoah is a terrific doctor. She is easy to talk with and listens carefully to what a patient has to say; because of this her recommendations fit the needs of the patient. I've looked for a doctor like her for a long time. Happy to have found Dr. Asamoah.
She seemed very personable and professional.
I really liked her. I will differently go back to her.
She was very concerns about my visit and gave me information about my procedure that was scheduled in the office.
She is the BEST!!!!
Vivian was very attentive and asked great questions. Feel very confident moving forward that she will take great care of me.
I have seen Dr Asamoah several times and I am very pleased with the care. She listens and has natural and standard medical knowledge. She performed a colonoscopy and endoscopy, the procedure was very smooth and professional. A good balance. I'm glad I found her (a friend referred me).
It was good
Doctor was very thorough and professional. She was very caring and took the time to listen to all of my concerns. She also made sure all of my questions were answered. I highly recommend this doctor! The last specialist I saw always had an attitude and discouraged you from asking any questions.
The visit was quick to the point and pleasant. Dr. Asamoah addressed my concerns regarding the actual upcoming procedure leaving me with a more comfortable feeling.
good professional doctor.
It started off good, then it turned into Doctor vs. patient kinda argument where she kept on inquiring about why I am switching doctors and started to defend other doctors. She seems like she don't trust patients words, but by default trust all doctors. She said I am being picky, well if my old doctor looses my Urine sample and i have to redo everything and wasted 3 weeks because of that, then yes, i will have to switch the doctors. And if another doctor "mishears" my symptoms are gone and tells my physician that I told him everything is getting better, then yes i will have to switch doctors because what i really told my doctor was symptoms go away "ONLY IF" i restrict myself to eat just white rice, plain chicken and egg whites... which is in no way normal even for a Ulcerative colitis patient. She was soo skeptical of anything that i was saying, and during the visit there were things i forgot to mention at the beginning, because how much can i really write down on the patients application, and how much in detail i can tell her in a small period of time, what all i have experienced in the last 3 years... she just gave me a look as if i am making this up or something. She kept saying she knows Dr. Li and he is a great doctor...well no doubt he must be intelligent and have good skill, but if he is misunderstanding/miscommunicating, which to me is because he is being a bit ignorant or just not paying full attention, then his intelligence is not being that effective in my case... all doctors have to do is just pay attention to what patience saying and stop jumping to conclusions soo fast and have a little faith in us too. Stop making it doctor vs. patient, consider us be in the same team... All i wanted is to discuss my disease, not wanted to get an investigation. Dr. Vivian, not all patience are lying, they are simply sharing their experience based on their interactions, and if you can't believe them than I can't be with a doctor like that. And this has nothing to do with your intelligence or skill level, its about just basic humanity, you can't think Doctors are superior and by default you trust them, and patients aren't smart enough to understand whats going on.
She is simply the Best!
She was very very very rude and didn't care about my concerns.
Dr Asamoah is a very kind, professional and thorough doctor. From my first referral appointment, to my procedure and followup appointment I felt comfortable, always informed and felt I was in very competent hands.
Dr. Asamoah has been my partner in managing my condition since diagnosis. She is the best! Highly educated and knowledgeable. She does not rush you or fail to answer your questions. She is my GI for life!
My problem has been well taken care of and Dr Vivian is very nice! But I still think the waiting time is very long considering you have made an appointment. I had to wait about an hour before I was seen by the doctor (and this was at 9 in the morning!) Last time I was there it was even longer.
Dr Asamoah is very knowledgeable, patient, and explains everything so as to instill confidence and relieve any anxiety. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to see a gastro.
She was very professional and very detailed. I wish she was my primary physician
Very thorough with her evaluations. Listens very well and got my severe acid reflux is under control immediately.
This was my first visit with Dr. Asamoah as a new resident of the city, and it will not be my last! She took a thorough medical history, examined me, discussed my concerns, and developed a treatment plan, which did not immediately involve prescription medications like my former doctor. I loved her conservative approach and the feeling that she wanted to work with me to find a treatment to resolve my problem rather than just writing it off as being "chronic and unsolvable but here's a pill you can take." While I was initially concerned at the lengthy waiting room delay, the fact that when it was my turn, she spent a good deal of time with me and didn't make me feel rushed explained that, and more than made up for it! Pleasant staff, comfortable waiting room, convenient location...I highly recommend this practice!
It was only my first visit, but she has a very pleasant demeanor. Most importantly she seemed genuinely concerned.
Dr. Asamoah is very professional, thorough answers all my questions & concerns.
The visit was great and the doctor is wonderful.
The only comment I have is that the staff is not completely going after your insurance information to see what procedures are covered and which one are not. At checkout there was confusion about what amount to pay, and which amount was covered by the insurance. It has been 3 days now and i am still waiting to hear back from them.
I love my doctor ??
Took time and was very informative. Relaxed my mind concerning my malady.
Dr. Asamoah listens and then evaluates the situation. She doesn't make hasty diagnoses. Her office staff is pleasant and professional.
Dr. Asamoah is very thorough on her testing and answered all our questions in the second visit once testing results were back. She has the knowledge, training and expertise to properly guide us through this diagnosis / journey.
Professional and informative. Explained all they had to do in a very clear and professional manner. Ana, the doctor's assistant is very nice.
Dr. Asamoah is warm and professional. I needed to discuss something with her, and Dr. Asamoah listened thoroughly and answered thoughtfully. Yes, I waited a bit longer than expected, but I assume she would take extra time with me if needed, as she did with her other patient that morning. Highly recommended!
Asolutely nothing was done. I was told to come back in 4 weeks!
This was the better of 3 visits so far. Wait time was way to long, slightly over an hour, but once in the room with the Doctor she was nice and had plenty to tell me about my condition and my next steps. This visit was better than the previous ones. I felt I was more cared about this go round.
She is very smart and knowledgeable, with good manner and fun, I would recommend her to all my friends and family.
Relaxed, unhurried. Doctor showed a sincere interest in my overall well being.
Dr Asamoah & her staff was very thorough and answered all my questions. I would recommend her to anyone!
The Doctor is fine but i do have some issues with the office staff and office setup. When you walk into the office you are not greeted by a person just a sign in sheet and frosted glass that separates the girls at the desk from the waiting room. The girls at the desk are not very helpful or proactive if there is an insurance question and tend to be curt and dismissive on the phone.
Doctor Asamoah is very patient friendly and professional. I take the long wait as a sign she is taking the time to get the best information to make the correct diagnosis.
What a blessing to have met Dr. Asamoah!! She asked questions, prodded me, took notes, and unlike the many other Drs I've seen regarding my long, bothersome issue, she immediately mentioned two things that could be the cause of my two year suffering. She is so knowledgeable that now, I feel certain in my heart, that Dr. Asamoah will be the one to find and cure what ails me.
Dr. Asamoah took time to go over different things I could do to help my acid reflux. She was knowledgeable and nice.
She is very professional also very well versed in knowledge. She gave us very realistic guidance for healthy life style changes. I would recommend her to any one who needs a gastrintologist
I looove Dr. Asamoah. She is fabulous at what she does and in just 3 short visits, she figured out how to best help me. I am in awe of this woman. :) I will continue to see her for any GI needs and will recommend her 100%.
I felt she listened to me and was very thorough with the testing she ordered. I will continue seeing here.
I must say I was extremely impressed with the over all experience. Her staff were beyond friendly. I had under 15 minutes wait time, from the time I signed in, to meeting the Dr. Dr, Asamoah is kind, funny and actually listens to you and takes everything you say seriously. Unlike most doctors who brush you off and act like they already know the issue and dismiss everything you say. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks. She deserves more than 5 stars, I'm thinking 10
It was very professional and very informative. She even has a computer specialist who writes the substance of the visit, thereby saving Doctor time and availability for important questions.
A WONDERFUL,CARING,AND INFORMATIVE DOCTOR.
Superb attention to detail for first visit. Right questions, immediate plan of action, attentive staff, extremely professional. Understands veterans insurance situation here in Houston. Other groups could learn from her.
I felt like she really listen to my symptoms and gave honest suggestions about care and outcomes.
She is a wonderful doctor! She took all the time she needed to know me and I took all the time I needed to explain my simptoms. She is súper professional. If you need an excelent doctor you have to go to see Vivian Asamoah. Thanks!
Dr Asamoah is kind and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and put me at ease about my treatment plan.
While I did have to wait, doctor did have quite a few issues arise, so I understood. Had the issues been mine, I would have gotten the same diligence and care she showed to the other patient. I was very impressed with her. Very easy to talk to.
From check in to check out these employees and the MD were excellent and has great customer service.
She took her time going over my options and explained everything to me very clearly. I fell very comfortable with her.
Dr. Asamoah is both friendly and knowledgeable. She provides excellent care and she helps to reduce the stress associated with being sick.
Great doctor AND staff, which is hard to find! I was running late and was seeing her on a Saturday and when I showed up as a late, new patient on a Saturday, at first it didn't look like I'd get in and when the doc asked what I came in for, she decided to still see me. She didn't have to, but I've had a hard time finding docs who even take my insurance and are great doctors, so I was pleasantly surprised! Although the room was a bit hot (which I assume had to do with it being a Saturday in a closed medical building and the AC possibly being shut off before I came), the girl took me back and was very friendly and had a great bedside manner herself (I believe her name was Bianca) When the doc came in, we discussed my complications and she went through my past records, did an exam, and even asked what I expected out of her as a doctor! Never had someone actually ask me that before! Great bedside manner and you can tell she truly cares about her patients! Will recommend
Very professional and warm. She takes the time to explain things in a way you can understand, and talks TO you, not AT you.
I feel she was very professional in her job and I think she did a very well job my office visit was very pleasing for the first time I would highly recommend any of my family members and friends to Dr.Vivian Asamoah,MD? office.
Exceeded my expectations
Great! Spent time with me going into details about my condition, meds, etc. Definitely on top of what's going on with me. Also, she's a doctor who does NOT talk down to you, which is refreshing. Not mandatory that a doctor have a good sense of humor and a great "bedside manner", but it sure doesn't hurt that she has both. Can't recommend her highly enough. I have a chronic condition, so I look forward to her being my gastroenterologist for the next ten years or so.
Dr. Asamoah is a great doctor who truly cares for her patients. She takes the time to explain every detail to you and I never felt like she was rushing around to patient to patient. I would highly recommend her! She always answers my questions and responds back quickly when I email her through the patient portal. Her staff if great too!
I am very pleased with her treatment. She is extremely professional and understanding. Her staff is friendly and helpful.
Dr. Asamoah was friendly, cheerful, knowledgeable, and thorough. She made sure all my questions were answered.
Always pleasing!! She listen to you explaining what you feel. She is also very thorough in looking at your diagnostic Record to make she doesn't miss anything. I have to drive 45 minutes to an hour to her clinic but,I'm happy to do so!! Doc VIVIAN ASAMOAH CARE!! She is an AWESOME2 Doc. I will recommend her anytime of the day....
She is a great doctor!! I highly recommend her.
Doctor Vivian is excellent. She tries hard to find the medication that works for you
She is excellent and got to the root of my problem quickly, she's my new doc!
First time seeing Dr. Asamoah and she was wonderful!
Visit went great I felt very comfortable staff was very friendly!
Love this professional. She is thorough, listens attentively, and has a beautiful demeanor.
She seem very rushed that day, not very informative about my condition, a little rough and inconsiderate of my situation, basically gave me medicine and rushed me out. will not return to her, actually hesitant to return to anyone for treatment of my issue after this experience
The office staff did not explain things well, as where to go for testing, where surgery would be
Very professional, friendly & thorough.
She was very calm and explained everything perfectly. She took her time and her office was beautiful
Dr, Asamoah is professional and takes the time to listen and explain. Friendly office staff. Happy to have found them!
Dr. Asamoah is a great doctor, compared to several other gastroenterologists I've been to. She has a pleasant bedside manner and was very professional - she asked me a lot of questions about my symptoms, and gave me a clear plan of action. She took her time to discuss my symptoms and answer my questions - I never felt rushed. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
She was extremely helpful and listened to everything I had to say about my symptoms. She is also extremely detailed and very good at explaining things. She is very understanding and she gave me hope. I am so relieved that I finally found an awesome GI doctor. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Very professional, took her time!!!!
Dr. Asamoah is extremely understanding, professional, and friendly! I would highly recommend seeing her!
Dr Asamoah, was so understanding and nice. Im so glad I found her!
Love her! Gastro issues are difficult to talk about. Dr Asamoah is very knowledgeable and has an awesome bedside manner. She asked lots of questions, and really listened to my responses. I am looking forward to feeling better, and I feel confident she's the right Dr for me.
I got to the office about 5 to 10 minutes late, took longer to get there than I thought. Had to fill out paperwork when I got there. Would have preferred to do that on line. I did not see anywhere to do that, not saying it was not available to do. I just did not see where I could have done it. Other than that, staff was very nice and professional. Doctor took her time to see and talk to me, I appreciate that.
My first visit with this provider and she seemed very caring about my needs and how she could address the issues that I was having. I would recommend her to my family and friends! :)
