Dr. Vasan is outstanding. I have complete confidence in him. I feel good about the action plan he came up with yesterday to address my recurring sinus infections and I feel confident I will be able to reach him relatively quickly in the future if I get sick again---rather than being treated at an urgent-care facility.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 13, 2017

This was an initial consult and scheduling of tests needed to proceed to a surgery, etc. Provider and his staff were excellent.

Dr. Vasan even drew out in detail on a piece of paper what we were discussing in layman's terms. He sent the visual aid home with me and made it easy to explain it to my family when I got home!

OU Physicians Patient May 12, 2017

Dr Vissan is probably the best Dr I have ever dealt with. He was always very friendly, professional, respectful of my wife and son and seemed happy to see us.

The best DR. ever

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2017

Dr. Vasan was professional and polite. He took time to have me sit down to view my CT scan and explained what he was seeing. He gave me options regarding my health plan and I was able to make the best decision for my circumstance. I am confident in his expertise and know that I am in good hands regarding my healthcare.

Was told I would need another test. They had to talk to someone about scheduling the test. That was Friday.

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2016

From my first visit I have been taken care of on the equivalent of a 5 star hotel. My only complaint is that Dr. Vasan is a specialist and I cannot see him and his staff on a more regular basis!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 5, 2016

Very kind explained everything to my family I feel like I am in good hands!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 11, 2016

Dr. seemed rushed and told me I did not need to be seen yet. This is after I took time off work, scheduled care for my children and incurred travel expenses to come to this appointment that he should have instructed his assistant to schedule after I met with other doctors. I say this because I asked his assistant before I scheduled the appointment for today, why I was scheduling it. Shouldn't I wait until I schedule with the other two doctors and was told no. Dr. Vasan wants to see you in a month. It was extremely frustrating. Doctors and their assistants should know more than anyone that time is money and is a precious commodity.

I never use such high ratings but I have had ______ cancers plus I am an (medical professional). I am so impressed with my dr, the staff , the hospital and this whole process that it has been something that I have expressed to co workers and healthcare professionals, friends and family. very impressive. I was afraid that the OU process would be so big I would be lost in the process. it's been the opposite. it is so big and we'll run that it is sooooo organized that it is shocking! thank you!
