We took my elderly mom to him after many other doctors just made her worse after many major illness. Doctor Ponnuru got my moms blood work in every area to levels better than Ive ever seen them He listens and doesnt just throw another pill at his patients. I myself have had 13 surgeries to date with more to come and if everything in my life would allow it I would be a patient today!!!

Dr. Ponnuru's Care Philosophy

The world of medicine continues to change.  Advances in technology allow electronic records, prescriptions and enhance the ability to communicate with specialists on complicated problems.  But one thing hasn't changed:  People need an advocate to help them navigate the complex health-care system and help them make personalized decisions.  

My goal is to develop a partnership with my patients to focus on wellness, communication, and collaboration.
