Vijay Iyer does not have an adequate amount of comments to generate the sentiment analysis.
Dr. Iyer is a fabulous physician and man. He performed a TAVR procedure on me. I was home the next day walking the neighborhood. He constantly checked on me and has tremendous empathy for his patients and families. I was in caring and competent hands.
Saved my life when I had a heart attack.
My 49 year old husband was diagnosed with a genetic heart defect late February 2018 - HOCM. He was referred to Dr. Iyer by Great Lakes Cardiology; scheduled for a Septal Ablasion. After meeting with Dr. Iyer and not feeling confident in our discussions with him, we secured a second opinion appointment at the Cleveland Clinic. The specialist at the clinic professionally disagreed with the treatment my husband had already received as well as the plan Dr. Iyer had recommended and quickly scheduled my husband for open heart surgery — a septal myectomy with the #1 surgeon in the US for this condition.Dr. Iyer’s nurse called us ironically approximately 6 days post Cleveland Clinic open heart surgery to follow up on our previous appointment with Dr. Iyer and schedule my husband for the Ablasion. We informed her that we had gone to the clinic who disagreed with everything Dr. Iyer and his affiliates had done, who told us that if we had gotten the Ablasion it would not have been successful and that my husband would have then not been a candidate for the open heart surgery and would then likely have a shortened life. She responded that she was happy we went to the clinic, that she had been trying to get to the clinic herself for training and that Dr. Iyer and staff are just not equipped to treat my husbands condition.At no point during our time with Dr. Iyer and his affiliates did any of them refer us to the Cleveland Clinic nor suggest that they were ill equipped to manage/treat my husbands condition. They instead recommended a course of action with confidence that could have left my husband for dead. It is our opinion that Dr. Iyer’s inability to recognize and admit his inadequacies to treat certain ailments is unprofessional, unacceptable and a huge flaw in his professional abilities.
