Love him!!!!! Very concerned, thorough, compassionate. Listens to all of your concerns! I wish my other doctors could be like him!!!! He is the best doctor I have . His office staff is all very good also.

Dr Hegde is always thorough and knowledge. He listens to and discusses your concerns in a polite and thoughtful manner.

Dr Vinay Hegde is a fantastic listener. At my last visit, he picked up on my hesitation of a new medication, walked me through the pros and cons, and I will forever be a better person because of his compassion. His nurse (I believe her name was Nancy-she's in the Lodi office) is just a fun personality who is so good at politely extracting medical information for Dr Hegde.

Dr. Hegde is a very caring, warm and knowledgeable physician. I would definitely recommend him as a cardiologist.

This was my first visit. Dr. Hedge was wonderful. Did not rush me through my appointment. Explained, in detail, what I had going on, and what he felt was the best route of treatment. A very knowledgeable young man.

Reviewed on Nov 15, 2022

A very good experience. He is very thorough & helpful, I would highly recommend him to my family & friends.

Dr. Hedge is a very caring man, I'm glad to be his patient.

Reviewed on Aug 23, 2022

As might be expected, the Dr. Hegde had no direct knowledge of my medical background and had to refer to charts on computer. He was, however, very attentive and listened to my questions.

I feel very safe in the hands of Dr. Hegde
