I have IPF. I am approaching my 6th year under Dr Puppala's care. I believe he is directly responsible for me living this long. Not only is Dr Puppala very knowledgeable, he actually listens when the patient talks. He will go the last mile to address the patient's needs, whether it be new medicine or new procedures. Dr. Puppala is hands down the best pulmonologist I have had.

I am thinking as I sit here typing this that possibly the only reason I am alive today is due to this physicians uncanny ability to diagnose more than the obvious.

Do not go see him if you want your family get good treatment. His staff is totally incompetent. Took 2 months to send paperwork for a test, took another two months to forward information to medical device center all after repeated requests and multiple prom. my husband insomnia is not treated properly by the doctor and his staff could not send paperwork for a half a year. Directly lead to a stroke. Still after that, dr and staff promised to send paperwork for another test. Nothing was done!!!

the doctor's people skills need improvement, however, every interaction with his staff had been unsatisfactory. They are rude and condescending and because of this I could not recommend this doctor
