Ratings for Dr. Venkatachalam Veerappan
I have seen Dr. Veerappan many times both as a hospital inpatient and on an outpatient basis. I first met him at Valley Hospital in 2012 when I had a stroke at age 32. I learned from my family that another doctor wanted to perform brain surgery on me to break up the clot (or something like that) but Dr. Veerappan was adamantly against it and refused to allow it -- a position that likely saved my life and/or prevented serious brain damage. I do wish his office staff was more proactive in accomplishing tasks and responding to calls, but as far was the quality of care received from Dr. Veerappan, he is absolutely top-notch.
I was treated by the Dr when I was in the hospital. He was very nice and helpful. follow up at his clinic was with a resident, i went 3 times. the tests that were to be ordered weren't, when i went back for the next appointment the resident did not remember what we had done before it was like starting all over again, I finally got 2 test never did get the lumber puncture, no treatment for my headaches, that was in 2011 still have constant headaches with no treatment, this town does not have good doctors
STAFF IS HORRIBLE!! FROM THE FRONT DESK TO BACK OFFICE.MY MOTHER HAS BEEN A PATIENT OF HIS FOR OVER 3 YRS. HE HAS BEEN TREATED HER SYMPTOMS WITH OXYCODONE AND GAVE HER MEDS THAT LANDED HER IN THE HOSPITAL. MEDS ARE MESSING UP HER GI. AFTER 2 SEIZURES SHE HAS HAD IN A 2 MONTH PERIOD HE STILL HAS NOT SEEN HER, INSTEAD ITS A RESIDENT. I FEEL THAT HIS FOCUS IS NOW ON HIS RESIDENT PROGRAM THEN HIS OWN PATIENTS.. A NICE DOCTOR WHEN YOU GET TO KNOW BUT I'M TIRED OF THE STAFF AND RESIDENTS.
The doctor seems nice and was very efficient and prompt to diagnosing me, however his clinic seemed to small and his staff is all over the place. Every time I am there I have an appointment and I always always have to wait like an hour after to see the doctor, this irritates me a lot.
