Rating *Dr. Vasu's care and expertise as well courtesy - on a scale 0-10 with 10 being the best, I rate her at 20. Yes - THAT GOOD.

6/29/2017

This was my first visit with Dr. Vasu. she was very informative and easy to talk to. She explained things well and was compassionate. All wonderful traits in a doctor.

6/19/2017

It has been determined by one of your cardiologist that I have an irregular heartbeat and that I should be seen annually incase it becomes a problem. It has been 2 yrs. since I had a re check and am having a medical issue that I thought might be due to a change in heart health. However, it was made clear to me by your Dr. that I was wasting her time. Just based my decision to make an appointment because of what the previous cardiologist had suggested and my current concern. very clear that I was a nusance and didn't need to take up your Doctor's time. I won't

3/3/2017

Very good experience.

1/4/2017

The provider was very courtesy and nice to me.

11/26/2016

When people have heart concerns, they are less likely, I believe, to shop around for a care provider. They need someone NOW. Therefore, I am unlikely to have the chance to recommend this provider, but I would if asked.

10/12/2016

Very good experience lot of confidence.

8/20/2016

Second time saw *Dr. Vasu- She was amazing & is trying to help my issues- without _____ it was all weight issues because I know I have extra fluid.
