I have had leg problems for many years and at my age of 67, I thought I would be crippled or in a wheel chair soon.... And then I found Dr Naidu (CVI of The Shoals). After having only 2 of the 5 recommended procedures for my leg problems, I FEEL GREAT!. I can walk for extended periods AGAIN. I can only imagine how I will feel after completing the other 3. Thank you Dr Naidu for giving me back my freedom of mobility. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Naidu for all things CARDIOVASCULAR. James Hank Carter

I came to Dr. Naidu to heaviness, swelling, and cramping in my legs. After being treated by Dr. Naidu I have more energy and no more swelling. I am pleased with my results.

When I came to Dr Naidu at Northwest Alabama Leg pain center , I worked on my feet all day as a waitress and bussed tables. I have done this for three years and it came to the point where I could not work anymore because my legs hurt so bad. I came and saw Dr Naidu and through conservative treatment and procedures to take care of my venous insufficiency all my problems resolved. I am back at work and loving it. The staff and all the treatment I had were great. I highly recommend this place.

I’ve had issues with leg pain, swelling, and feeling of heaviness for several years. I was seeing a vein specialist In Ga., and still having problems, I found Dr Naidu. With each Procedure I have seen great improvements in my legs and am feeling so much better. I highly recommend Dr Naidu. He listens to every need you have and explains in layman’s terms what he can do to fix the problem. He and his staff are very friendly and caring. Excellent Doctor

I dealt with vein issues, leg pain, swelling, aching, etc for years. After a failed procedure in 2008 with another vein doctor my legs continued to be an issue. I found Dr. Naidu and the Cardiovascular Institute of the Shoals thru Facebook. It took seven procedures to complete both legs. The procedures were quick and painless. I can't thank Dr. Naidu, the nurses and staff enough! If you suffer with leg pain, give them a call today!

After years of searching for a doctor who could me, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Dr Naidu actually listened, his wonderful positive bedside manner put me at ease quickly and filled me with confidence for the future. He's a rock star and everyone at his office are friendly and knowlegable.

I am able to stand on my own again without using my arms to push up out of a chair. The burning and tingling is gone! I've noticed that I'm not swelling now. The numbness is gone in both of my feet. I enjoy Dr. Naidu's attentiveness, he is very thoughtful and concerned for his patients. I am very pleased with his nurse practitioner, Amy Beth Hall. I have not met anyone who has not been friendly and thoughtful. The office decor is fabulous!
