Dr. Pothuloori is the absolute best! He always finds ways to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. He focuses on why things are happening and takes the time to look at the whole picture and not just endocrinology. He always takes his time explaining everything and I never feel like he is trying to rush me out of his office. I am so glad I found them!

DR. Pothuloori is an excellent endocrinologist. From the first time we met, my wife and I knew that he would be the best advisor in helping me with my diabetes. He is knowledgeable,as well as caring and I trust him implicitly. I would not hesitate recommending him to any person who might fully make use of his caring, knowledge and professionalism.

I started seeing Dr P in 2017 because of my diabetes problems. He is such an awesome Dr, he takes the time to go over your lab results and makes sure you completely understand. I would give him 15 out of 10. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Pothuloori and his PA were great! They were very thorough in their questioning about my habits and symptoms and caused me to think about some things I’d never really been asked by a doctor before that could be symptoms! Very nice and professional.

There is always a little anxiety when going to new doctor, even if it just for a referral. I found him to be attentive, informative and very helpful in helping me understand my case.

Dr. Pothuloori I am very happy with. He seems to really care about my diabetes. Takes the time to listen to me. I travel from Lenexa,KS to see him. I would like to get tests results soon because I always seem to worry about my results . I would like to get my feet checked at each visit. He is a very caring Dr.
