Ratings for Dr. Vijay S. Nair
I am 25 years old and I had a fast heart rate. He was the only Doc to actually take the time to look at me. I went to three other cardiologist before him, and they all wanted to tell me that it was stress. Dr. Nair to the time to make sure it wasn't just stress, and sure enough I had an over growth on my heart that had to be removed. I am glad that he took the time to take care of me. Now I don't have any problems and I feel great.
Dr. Nair was not helpful at all after I was admitted to the hospital overnight with chest pain and a racing hart rate. After being released the following day and visiting him at his office for a stress test, I was not asked any pertinent information such as if I was a smoker, if I had a history of high blood pressure, my diet habits, etc... I was just put on a prescription and then dismissed saying I was fine. Approx. 2 weeks later his associate called and told me that I needed to come in for another test, at which time I was told I had heart disease due to my 20 years of smoking (I haven't touched a cigarette in 20 years), my history of chest pain (I was fine a month before), history of high blood pressure (never had been a problem before), etc... All the history that the never even bothered to ask. Dr. Nair and his associate are all too quick to just put you on a pill and not even consider other options. I would NEVER recommend them to anyone.
Went for a follow up after a stay in the hospital. Waited in the waiting room for 1 hour...waited in exam room for 10 minutes..dr spoke with me for no more than 5 minutes...did not have results of 2D ECHO completed 2 weeks before this appt...had to wait in waiting room for an additional 30 minutes for those results..dr came into waiting room in front of other patients to give results..was not clear on meaning of results..ask him to clarify..he stated you are fine and walked away. After paying numerous bills to this dr I have to go for a second opinion. WOuld not recommend this MD to other.
