Front office Sarah
I called the office of Dr. Tipirneni. I spoke with Sarah, asking her questions about Dr. Tipireni. Sarah was very informative, advised me what information I could send to Dr. Tipirneni pre appointment as I would have to drive 400 miles for appt. Sarah is a great example of the value of doctors having an excellent pro-active front office staff person.

I would not see him again. He gave me a cortisone injection without giving me aMRI first. After the injection I was not able to walk for one week. I went somewhere else and after a MRI the second doctor found a fracture and a torn ligament. Stay away. Not competent and very quick. Does not pay attention to your needs.

Wouldn't choose him again. Asked no questions, no follow up . Received a shot. I felt as if I wasn't important since there wasn't surgery involved. Office staff is wonderful.

Saw my wife after a fall 2 times and did not do xrays said at her age it would take a long time to heal. Went to a different Orthopedic surgeon he immediately did xrays and surprise she had a broken elbow with a displaced fracture and a cracked knee cap.

I'm a physician, and I know a lot of orthopedic surgeons, but when I needed to have a knee replacement, I chose to see Dr. Kishore Tipirneni. He and his staff are excellent, and he has a wonderful team that he works with at Abrazo Arrowhead Hospital. Some day I will probably have to have my other knee replaced, and I will go back to Dr. Tipirneni.

Dr. Tipirneni is an excellent doctor. He fixed my daughters hand, which was broken in two spots and now she is back participating in her sport in only two months since her injury. The office itself is very efficient. We have never had to wait over ten minutes in the waiting room. I would highly recommend Dr. Tipirneni.

My experience with Dr. Tip can only be described as positive and informative. The procedure was explained and I knew what to expect before and after the surgery.

Dr. Tipirneni has always treated me with respect as a patient in the office and as person when I've seen him in the community. He is an excellent doctor and I've never had to wait for my appointments. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic consultation or surgery.

Dr. Tipirneni is a fantastic physician. He is very prompt, articulate, accommodating and has a no nonsense approach to medicine. I would recommend him to my family and friends. He is also a great resource for other outstanding physicians in the area.

Dr. Tipirneni didn't offer any rx prescription or after care recommendations for pain management. He was in and out of the exam room so quickly, I had to hobble down the hall to ask more questions. He advised surgery. With his lack of communication and people skills, why would I want him to do surgery on my knee? I had to research additional info online. Pretty sad, huh? I will be seeking medical attention someplace else.

Dr Tip has helped me manage significant pain in my shoulder for several years. I could not be in better hands and the results have been excellent. He's succeeded where 2 other Dr's have not.

SHOULD BE ZERO. He is pompous & unsympathetic, apparently he works on coding/creates apps on the side. He should stick to working with computers because he has ZERO people skills. Its a factory of people coming in and out, he doesn't spend any time with you. Don't ask to see your x-rays or for clarification on anything or you'll be sure to get multiple eye rolls for wasting his time. They cut my cast off after 3 weeks, TAPED it together, sent me on my way. I'm now being treated by someone else.
