Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

It has been my experience visiting Dr. Veluvolu's office to be a pleasant one, all the staff, nurses, and Dr Veluvolu as always in a positive frame of mind. this gets your time in their company off to a great start. Not all Doctors and Staff are the same, some stand out in a very good way this office falls in that category. I think Dr. Veluvolu is very knowledgeable in my case and I respect his opinion and feel better after each visit.

He, as well as his staff, are prompt, caring and always willing to go the extra mile for me and my family. No matter how simple or difficult the question, I’m answered with respect, honestly and dignity. I can’t say thank-you enough to he and his staff. They make difficult situations and conversations bearable. Most importantly, I always leave his office understanding what’s required of me and how best to take care of my needs.
