Patient Comments (4)
in Newark, CA |
I found Dr. Achanta to be an excellent surgeon. He took time to explain procedures thoroughly and was kind and courteous. I have to have follow-up surgery in 6 months and he told us two of the best hospitals to go to for the procedure I will be having. Both my husband and I are extremely confident in Dr. Achanta's abilities, so I will be returning to him instead of going elsewhere. I would highly recommend him to others.

WORST SURGEON EVER
I don't have a patient who has a first or last name Babu. Will be happy to address concerns from my patients but cannot address any reviews from ficticious patients
in Hayward, CA |
Excellent surgeon with tremendous skill. Dr. Achanta also possesses a great personality. His personal physician assistant Nina is also highly qualified and very caring. A great team.
