Dr. Parchuri did my back fusion surgery in April 2017. He was attentive, kind and concerned about what I expected the outcome of my surgery to be. I would highly recommend him to anyone with spinal issues.

I recently had a procedure done for sciatic nerve pain. I was told by several other doctors that there was nothing to be done for this except pain pills. I was so glad to hear Dr. Parchuri say he could help. Even though he wanted to do the surgery right away, I had to postpone due to work and personal reasons. The day came and the procedure was performed. I can't begin to tell you the relief I received. After more than 10 years, the pain running down my legs was gone. Not less, gone.

I have been seeing Dr. Patchuri for almost 8 months. I had read all the reviews online before I decided to chose him as my doctor. I was leery due to his past given reviews...as, everyone I read-stated he was an amazing physician but had terrible bed-side manor. Much to my surprise, I exerperienced something quite the opposite! Dr. Patchuri is funny, whitty, intellectual, and very kind. So, let me set the record straight-Dr. P. is an amazing surgeon with equal bed-side manor. I'm very pleased

This "dr" has terrible bedside manner a real jerk go see for yourself. very rude and doesn't seem to understand how important it is to tell the patient the results like other drs I have seen. Will NEVER go back to him EVER AGAIN!!!!!!
in Tulsa, Ok |
Dr. Parchuri, Is an amazing Doctor who actually treats his patients, with respect, compassion and listens to the patient. Dr. P has given me a better quality of life than I've had in many years, he goes the extra mile to ensure that he is doing everything possible to get you as a patient back to a quality of life. I am forever grateful for Dr. P and all of his amazing staff, they have become a part of my family. Thank you Dr.P Cynthia Collins Meza

Dr. Parchuri performed a total disc replacement in my lumbar spine. Surgical results are excellent. He is definitely a highly skilled surgeon. His bedside manner needs some work. Be sure to ask questions, because he offers little information on his own.

Bedside manner isn't great...but, he is good at what he does.

I was dealing with left side nerve pain radiating from back to toes off and on for several years and was sent for physical therapy several times and six injections in my back, none of which worked. I could no longer play golf or dance. Dr. Parchuri performed surgery in early June to remove a bone spur, bone fragment and clean out disc area. I have had no pain since. In two and a half months, I am back to playing golf and dancing. Dr. Parchuri has given back my active lifestyle. Thank you!!!

I tell everyone about Dr.Parchuri and the rest of the gang. They are all amazing people and take the time to talk with you. They truly care about you and even your family my kids love coming with us to our Dr Appts because the drs are so nice to them. I am very picky with drs and will go to several til I find one I like and I have been a patient for almost two years. My husband and mother in law are also patients

I was sent to Dr. Parchuri by my family doctor. The appointment was about 2 weeks out, but when my doctor called to see if he could see me sooner I was able to get in the next day. Dr. Parchuri took his time explaining my problem to me. He showed me a pinched nerve on my MRI that was causing my pain. He went over all the options and I decided to try an injection because I don't like taking pills. So far it has helped. I may have to repeat it. He seems very confident and I trust him.
in Onstott |
Dr parchuri helped me when no one else was able to fix my situation. He gave me the time and expertise to figure out what was wrong and used a less invasive procedure than what others had recommended to help me. I am for ever thankful. I appreciate you brother parchuri
in Talala, OK |
We have turned him in to the insurance company due to his lack of patient skills. He is a horrible doctor to ask questions to and is not personable. He is just out to make money and that is it.
