Review for Dr. Bagheri

Dr Strom Assisted me in finally getting a diagnosis for my Prostate Cancer and introduced me to the providers necessary to resolve my issues.

Benjamin Filer Feb 01 2023

I feel he is very honest with me about my illness.

Review for Dr. Ulrich

Dr Reddy is very professional.. He listens to your concerns and addresses them. I appreciate his help.

Jan 31 2023

Review for Dr. Reddy

The reviews from Tennessee appear to be accurate. Other doctors recommend carpal release surgery. He gives yours Z pack of prednisone and wants you to comeback 5 months, not very reassuring.
