He is very friendly, and respectful. But I think a little too cautious when it comes to examining the women's body. Very brief when it comes to the "Well Women's" exams, the task should be more in depth! Great! Doctor though!

Dr. Vivek-Thomas John Sankoorikal, MD is very knowledgeable, highly professional, respectful regardless of my mood, takes time to communicate, and is excellent with patients who are high strung at times. I would recommend him for friends and family because I know that he is trustworthy and an excellent doctor because of the care that he gives his patients and by the respect that he has for the caregiver who has to bring me to my appointments.
