Have you seen Dr. Emmanuel Venkatesan?
Spring 2015 ~ Abrupt change in Dr.V's personality, level of care, engagement and rapport in his doctor -patient relationship.
Posted on March 15th, 2017
I have been a patient of Dr.V for more than 10 years. He always listened to my concerns, engaged with me in discussing how I felt, treatment options, and was accepting of my choice. Spring of 2015, abruptly he changed. He no longer listens to you, even when you are answering his questions, to the point of rudeness. Exams are cursory; preferring to order expensive, and unnecessary lab work. He decides for you how much pain/illness you have. The mutually beneficial doctor-patient relationship is gone. (4.5 stars to 1.5 stars).
Wasted my yearly visit

He will not take the time to listen or explain anything. The facility requires the doctor to enter all prescription info during the visit so he was distracted on the computer and didn't listen to any concerns or questions. Was told to go to specialists for all of the issues I presented. In addition, he got ALL of my prescriptions wrong which required multiple calls to the facility to get corrected. DO NOT GO HERE

This doctor does not communicate well, does not help you understand your health problem or diagnosis. Posts prescriptions to the health portal without telling you a diagnosis or providing any information about the reason for the prescription. Does not provide patient education. The quality of care is poor.

Perhaps a bad day for him but when ill elderly patients come to the doctor they require explanation and patience.
Doctor missed diagnosis
Posted on November 23rd, 2015
The doctor is only an "ok" doctor. He didn't provide the interpretation that he said he would write on the lab results. Most importantly, he rushed through the physical exam and missed a diagnosis, because he didn't do a proper physical. I know what a proper physical looks like, because I am a medical student, and the diagnosis was actually caught when we were practicing physicals on each other. The office staff was seriously disorganized. They sent my private health information to one of my neighbors, 4 times, because they had my address wrong.

I went for a specific problem and that problem was brushed off and instead I was given immunizations and lab work I didn't need. I'm still having the problem. What a useless waste of time and money.
