Quality patient care requires careful listening to the patient’s own story of their problem, so as to understand the concerns and goals for care from the patient’s perspective. For care to be effective, the patient must remain an active partner of the entire health care team. The best quality care requires going the extra mile to obtain the best possible understanding of the patient’s condition. I also partner with community leaders and non-profit organizations to further enhance and contribute to improving the care of patients especially those with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.

We actually did a phone consult due the current virus threat. The call was exactly at the time it was expected. the doctor and her nurse practitioner were very kind, listened to what we had to say and had already reviewed the records. Couldn't ask for more than that.

the doctor was able to make a diagnosis when no one else could and has gotten me to a healthy "sweet spot" over the past 10 years.

Dr. Venkatesan impressed me with her vast knowledge on my condition and her straight forwardness made me feel like she was looking out for my best interest. A long with all of this, she seems like a fun, down to earth person!

she is THE BEST and most knowledgeable and understanding provider I have ever been treated by when it comes to my Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. I recommend her to all of my Facebook pages that specifically target those suffering from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. this disease is not understood by many doctors, so to have someone who cares for me and totally understands what I'm going through is a BLESSING to say the absolute least. she is the best.
