Dr. Gayathri S Vontivillu has the following 2 specialties
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Doesn't listen to the patient. Her medical techniques appear to be outdated. She has no compassion for her patients. It's her way or no way. Very dissatisfied with her attitude. Great staff at Irving Baylor but they feel like they take the brunt of the backlash from this doctor. Dr V will not speak to you one on one. Stands behind the nurses and let's them take the negativity from patients.
First of all,, you should know that you Texans stole her from Michigan but when she was here she was an excellent physician. I have never liked a physician so much, never felt rushed, discussed treatment plans and worked with me to get to my goals. Miss her much but I will say that she left me in the care of another fine physician. Texans you had better treat her well or we Michiganders will bring her back here.
Dr. V, as she suggests you call her, is an outstanding doctor in all respects. She takes as much time as needed to review your reasons for visiting and I have never felt rushed. She shows great compassion and a true concern for your health. I like that fact that she personally calls you with test results, even simple blood test. I only have two criticism, one minor one not so minor. Minor the office needs updating! The decor is dank and depressing. Major the front office womenwell one in particular really the office manager. Is rude and always seems confused. I am sure she is a good person but she is not well suited for this job. Honestly, you must really look past the major negative to see the good aspects of Dr. Vs office.
