One of the Best!
Without a doubt one of the best GI doctors. I usually visit Okeechobee for fishing at the lake and I fell sick. He took care of me at the hospital. He was fast and the procedures were done in a timely fashion too.

Patient Referred Me
I suffer with Celiac disease and was looking around for a good doctor to take care of my problem. I was referred by one of his patients and right from the get go I knew I found the right Doctor. Great guy.

Father Treated Too
Before 6 months my father got treated here. He is fine today. The doctor prescribes the right medicine and won't suggest anything for money. Just after three visits we could feel the improvement. There is no burning sensation in the stomach. Feeling good.

Cured in 4 Weeks
My health has improved a lot after consulting Dr. Vikram. I had stomach ulcer and he cured it in 4 weeks. The main quality to admire him is "commitment". Patients requirements are given max importance and fees is also affordable.

Treatable Conditions

The South Florida Gastroenterologist performs many complex diagnostic procedures to treat conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Hemorrhoids, Severe Abdominal Pain & much more.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease, commonly referred to as GERD, is a medical condition in which the acidic juices in your stomach splash back into your esophagus, irritating the esophageal lining.

Hemorrhoids are veins around the anus or lower rectum that have become swollen and inflamed and are extremely common in men and women. Hemorrhoids can happen either inside the anus or under the skin.

A colonoscopy is a medical outpatient procedure that lets the gastroenterologist examine the lining of your large intestine. Colonoscopy is performed to test for colon cancer and pre-cancerous polyps.

Upper endoscopy helps gastroenterologists find the source of symptoms such as upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or difficulty swallowing.

As a trained Gastroenterologist, I am familiar with the signs and treatment options of hemorrhoids including laser hemorrhoid removal.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder characterized most commonly by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea.
