What People Say About Dr. Christopher Komanapalli, MD
Reply
He was a very good surgeon and provided a high level of care for me, throughout my heart procedure. He was direct, to the point and very thorough, a trait a greatly appreciated in my cardiac surgeon. He got me through a long and protracted procedure and I have made a full and strong recovery. I would recommend him.
