My experience with Dr. Vemulapalli was very good. 2013 I went to see her for the first time. I was 59 and my bladder prolapsed. I was very scared about that. I was honest with her about not having been checked for a long time, because I had not had alot of trust in doctors. She scolded me about that but I excepted it because she was being honest and she was also right. She was not rude.She cares alot about women. She examined me and told me my options. I chose for her to repair my bladder and get a hysterectomy also. I was honest with her about my fears and I asked her if she would be doing my surgery. She was very loving and had compassion on me. She hugged me and told me that everything would be alright. She is a wonderful loving person and she takes her job seriously, which she should. She did an excellent job on my surgery. My sister also saw her and we both admire her and love her very much. She is a God send. She was for me and I will never forget what she did for me. I read some of the other reviews. All I can say is that she has been grosley misinterpreted
I saw Dr. V through my whole pregnancy. She is very to the point and does not mess around with small details that she does not find important. Like the fact that at the end of my pregnancy I had an unexplained (at the time) high fever for a week. I would call she would tell me to wait it out. Meanwhile, I'm having contractions and feeling horrible. Again, I would call and eventually she had me admitted to the hospital. When I was admitted the staff at the hospital treated me horrible. Which is not Dr. Vs fault....however when she did show up she treated me just as the staff had. She acted like I was crazy. So she sent me home. I still had a fever and I was still having contractions. This was on a Tuesday. By Friday her partner had me come into the office and she immediately sent me to be admitted. Within an hour of being admitted they found out I had a life threatening infection. I had an emergency c-section and stayed in the ICU for a week....without my baby. How many times did Dr. V come to see me? A big fat zero. My follow up appointment she wouldn't see me. As a matter of fact she wouldn't even look at me or my baby. So would I recommend her? Not in a thousand years. However, her lack of empathy was overshadowed by her staff and partner. They were awesome!!! I only wish that they had been my doctor.
I was 16 when I saw this dr for my first pelvic exam and it was a horrendous experience. I cried the whole way home because she hurt me so bad. No bedside manner at all. Never went back, never will. The next gynecologist I saw was at Planned Parenthood and the doctor there was so kind, gentle and informative and used a small speculum that was warmed.
