Dr is very through and concerned

December 21, 2019 10:07 AM

Showed concern for my health, offered advice, I may be taking too many meds (on one hand I agree, on the other non-psych doctors tend to invalidate my need to treat my mental illnesses), gave me thorough check-up & recommended good specialist to see which was helpful.

Overall, very good experience.

December 9, 2019 1:59 PM

Dr. Vijakhumara was very helpful. She took her time during our visit, she seemed really concerned about my well being. She also called me the next day with my test results. I look for that in a doctor. Especially since this was a new visit with her.

Dr. Vijayakumar is an excellent doctor! She addressed the reason for visit and then ordered tests (blood) to check my general health.

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

I was unable to get in with my regular MD in the time frame I felt I needed for my sinus infection. An appointment was offered with this doctor at a time that worked in my schedule. I was happy to meet her and felt she took good care of me.

September 27, 2019 7:00 PM

She was thorough as always.

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I am entirely uncomfortable with how readily this doctor peddles prescriptions. I went in for a follow up on a concussion and she gave me a z pack for a cold that I didn't ask for. Some people might be into this, but I'm not.

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I visited the provider for an annual checkup. This is my first visit with the provider. The experience was comfortable and good.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

She was very abrupt and dismissive of my concerns. She didn't hear me out when I was expressing concerns.

The Doctor treated me with respect and gave me a reason for the possible problem I was having with my back
