    Dim request As WebRequest
            Dim response As HttpWebResponse
            Dim dataStream As Stream
            Dim ds = New DataSet("Response")
            Dim responseFromServer As String
            Dim reader As StreamReader
            Dim dt As DataTable
            request = WebRequest.Create("http://gcInformation.net/GetResult.ashx?patient_id=123456&username=sreyas&password=sreyas")
            response = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
            dataStream = response.GetResponseStream()
            reader = New StreamReader(dataStream)
            responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd()
            ds.ReadXml(XmlReader.Create(New StringReader(responseFromServer)))
            dt = ds.Tables(0)

    Consider using LINQ to XML to limit the results of your query.

    and load it in the Dataset with the following code i get every row as table in the dataset but i need to read the <Result></Result> as a table.

    Refer to the Code Below. It's in C#. But I hope it is fairly easy to understand.

            string responseFromServer = doc.InnerXml;
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            ds.ReadXml(new StringReader(responseFromServer));
            DataTable tb1 = ds.Tables[0];
            GridView1.DataSource = tb1;

    The above code shall read the string to XML and finally to DataTable, DataTable can be displayed using GridView.

    Best Regards!

    ReadXml method of DataSet Convert every Node as table and attributes name as column. so you can manually parse this XML using XmlNode  and set in grid view or DataTable. 



    If you satisfy with that suggestion than mark as answer otherwise explain your question in detail
