He was very helpful. I Feel he truly want's to help people.
Dr. Veeravagu is extremely warm, informative, and caring. He put me at ease my explaining things so well in an understandable manner. He invites questions and makes sure every step of the way that I understand things. His passion for his patients and field are evident, and I am so grateful he is my doctor. Sherri Lee was also excellent and attentive. She was friendly and professional and did a wonderful job summarizing the information I gave her.
I see why Doctor Spiegel recommended him.
Thank you for the excellent care.
Quite amiable.
I liked him a lot.
World-class Neurosurgeon!
I appreciated Dr. V's approach; professional, factual, friendly.
excellent thank you
His reputation preceded him. He did not disappoint. Completely engaged.
Dr Veeravagu was easy to understand, was familiar with the reasons for my consultation, acknowledged what I had done in terms of self care (ie, exercise), and presented me with a very do-able option that we hope will prevent further disability (if not actual improvement.) The neurosurgery dept should consider revising its pre-visit questionnaire. It’s the same one I filled out 2 years ago, and STILL doesn’t have a way to communicate that I have WEAKNESS and not pain.
The staff and medical team was great. Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly.
Dr V and N.P. Sheri Loo were amazing. Efficient, precise, thorough. World-class care.
Doctor explained everything very well and his assistant took good care of me

I was immediately impressed by Anand Veeravagu's kind and efficient manner during the video interview. He was caring and knowledgeable, took the time to show me x-ray &/or MRI results for my back, helped me to understand the proposed treatment plan which will evolve in a conservative way, answered all questions and gave me ideas of what types of exercises would be safe to do as treatment progresses. I feel relief in being able to trust in his expertise and that of Sherri L., who also conducted part of the video interview. I am grateful for the time both of them spent with me.

Dr. Veeravagu is easy to talk to and answers questions completely. I trust his guidance in my health care.
This was my first visit with him. I spoke with an assistant prior to the doctor and she was very helpful. The doctor was very nice and explained to me my situation thoroughly, he also showed me a scan I had done, so I could visually see my problem . I live about 4 hours from Stanford Medical and Dr Veeravagu is being very accommodating of that fact. It is difficult for me to ride in a car for long periods of time. More of the prep work I can do in the area in which I live, such as blood work or an EKG, the easier this whole experience will be for me. I believe the Dr is making every effort to help me in that regard also.
