Ratings for Dr. Vikram S. Jayanty
Dr Jayanty is top notch.He is well trained,asked questions which helped determine the treatment for my problem; he listens to his patients and if he doesn't know the answer he tells you! He is a talented physician and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!
Came in because I had food poisoning, turned out to be E coli after my stool test was done. They tested for inflammation too. Well, my inflammation test came back positive, so they recommended a colonoscopy (I'm only in my 30s). I asked if the positive test could have been because of the E coli, but the PA was adamant that b/c my test was positive, it was a very high chance that I had some kind of inflammatory disease. Despite my argument about the positive test b/c of the E coli, they recommended a colonoscopy, anyway. My colonoscopy came back clear. What did the doc say...he said my inflammation could have been due to the E coli!!! So I paid more than $1k out of pocket to have a test that was negative. What also made me so mad was they said I needed a followup visit to go over the results. I waited about 1 hour for a 2 minute "followup" visit where he told me what I already knew. If this was a good doctor, he could have just told me over the phone and saved me some money because I was charged for the stupid 2 minute followup. I felt so gipped, like he was just out to get more patient visits to get more money.
Dr. Jayanty has taken care of my husband & I. He is very knowledgable, spends time with his patients and is an excellent physician. His reports after the procedures were thorough and we truly appreciate the time he spends with us talking. It is very rare to have a physician spend this much time with each patient. His office staff has treated us with respect and really tries to accommodate our needs when we need to come to the office.
Dr.Jayanty is a genius! He knew exactly what was wrong within 5 minutes and helped me get better before my big trip. I've never had a doctor with such strong bed side manner and his team were incedibly kind and professional. Will be recommending him to others
I was in the hospital for 3 days, with pain. The dr came in one time on the first day I was there to talk to me to tell me what procedure would be done. Three days went by and no procesure and no more dr visit for the rest of my hospital stay!! Dr never came back to explain why I was in so much pain. I checked myself out of the hospital. Worse experience ever. I went to another hospital and come to find out I had pancreatitis!! This dr really needs to pay attention to his patients more. He was my dr for 2 yrs and with every visit his concern about his patient was not exceptable. No communication with the patient. I am happy to say I finally found a wonderful dr in St Lukes in the Med Center. I will never see this dr again.
I never saw the Dr. in my senses. He did the colonoscopy while I was sedated and befroe and after consulation was done by his assitant. Billing department was a nightmare. Even my Insurance company gave up with them. I ended up paying $120 from my own pocket. You are treated like a herd in this place. I hope there are better clinic than this place in twon.
I had a colonoscopy in the endoscopy suite in the office. I was treated so well. I was given Propofol for an anesthetic and I was in and out of the office within an hour. The doctor explained everything in detail so I could understand in layman's terms - not doctor speak! Have had a colonoscopy with another doctor at the hospital and the cost is significantly less in Dr. Jayanty's office! The staff worked with me to HELP ME make sure United paid for my out of network anesthesia services! What a relief! I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Jayanty to all of my friends and family!
This doctor's answer to everything is Metamucil. He probably owns a lot of stock in the company. He also wanted me to take a particular medication, even though the one I have been taking for years is working for me. The one he wanted me to take costs about 100 times more than what I'm on. I guess he has stock in that company too. He doesn't listen and asks you the same questions over and over again. I think his main income is from clinical research. I can see why.
