"Very down to Earth. Provides clear, concise, and understandable patient education and reassurance. Is an active patient advocate at the point of contact by making great effort to understand patient's perspective. Her body language during my office visit was impressively worth mentioning because bedside manners are so strongly lacking now a days. She visibly displayed to me a respectful high level of genuine concern, and gave me a strong sense that she sincerely cares about her patients. I can't say enough words to express my gratitude and appreciation. -Amy Adams"

"My oncologist referred me to her on a Friday morning. I was contacted that same day by Rhonda and we set up a video chat with Dr. Kumaravel for Monday. She was very personal and answered all my questions. We were able to schedule my 2 procedures the following Monday at MRMC. Once again, Dr. Kumaravel explained the procedure and afterwards came in and discussed results with us. Discussed options and scheduled a follow up appointment for 4 weeks. I Was never nervous and she as ver assuring. Highly recommend."

"My experience from start to finish was excellent. The staff that attended to me getting me ready for prep were awesome! Ashley, Traci, Sarah, Marcus and I think Alan who assisted Marcus in hooking me up. If I misspelled a name or left someone out please forgive me I can blame it on the drugs. I had never met Dr. Kumaravel my first time seeing her as a patient. She was very kind, professional and patient with making me feel very comfortable. She let me talk answered my questions with a beautiful smile under the mask with her eyes. They were gentle with me and I felt like I was in good hands. Hard to feel that way when you are going for any procedure at the doctor's. When I awaken it was over and I actually didn't feel like I had a procedure done. Great Doctor! Sarah"

"I’ve been Dr. Kumaravel’s patient since 2017. She is so professional, knowledgeable and patient! She takes time to connect with her patients, make sure she understands their concerns, and then fully answers any questions they have. Her office is also very professional, well run, and puts patients concerns as a priority. I’ve had to call during after hours and they always quickly return my calls and make sure concerns are addressed. I cannot say enough positives for this office and dr."

"Time & Treatment was awesome. No wait time at all. Dr. Veena Kumaravel was so humble, courteous, went in depth of the issue, and diagnosed. I would give a 5 star rating. She made me feel so comfortable."

"Dr. Veena listened to all my symptoms, concerns, eating habits thoroughly and also made notes of those details, she actually remembered some of the things that I had briefed in a previous visit while in a follow up visit. She prescribed lab tests, carefully examined them and recommended necessary treatment and adjustment of eating habits, ofcourse this treatment plan was specific to my condition and severity and may vary for others. I had actually called other Doctors offices near my home prior to this office, but was instantly disappointed after talking to them because they REQUIRED endo/colon scopy prior to Doctor's visit.Shows the amount of sincerity Doctor's have for treating patients. Anyways, Dr. Kumaravel mentioned the underlying cause of my issue, and if the symptoms did not come down during the treatment period, procedure will be conducted. I am more open to her intelligent deductions and procedures rather than going to tests blindly. Recommend her highly. Oh, I almost forgot, the way she meets and greets with warmth and genuine compassion is unmatched. Interaction and bed side manners are awesome. Office also has good gut health informational books in the book shelf."

"She is really nice Doctor, My wife is her patient. I haven't seen a doctor who cares for her patients so much, she gives you full time to understand your problem, She personally call you if you call her in office if you have any problem.If their are more stars than 5 I will give her more stars. Unfortunately 5 is highest."

"I went to Dr Kumaravel on a referral from my PCP. I found Dr Kumaravel to be very personable, explaining everything in detail, laying out the pros and cons, whether for medication, testing or both. She is very sharp and extremely proactive when it comes to finding out what’s ailing you and moving forward with the treatment(s). I have never felt that she was in a hurry to get me out the door. I’ve always gotten any question I had answered promptly. The check-in process is simple and efficient and the staff has always been easy to deal with. The front office staff is knowledgeable, and they’ve always provided me with all the necessary information for any treatment and/or tests ordered by Dr Kumaravel. I love their website; it has all the test instructions for pre and post-op testing or surgery in an easy-to-read format. My calls have always been returned in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr Veena Kumaravel and Digestive Health Associates for any digestive issue."

"This doctor sat and actually listened to my symptoms and appeared to have compassion and empathy. I just wish all of my doctors would be as well educated and sympathetic. Especially since I have mysterious symptoms. Then she had 3 plans of action. Luckily there is a medication that may help. That's plan one. So far I love this doctor! What a fantastic bedside manner!"
