Dr. Ananth is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Because of this she has many patients and at times you will have very long wait times. However she will spend the time needed to solve your pain and other issues.

Dr. Ananth is the BEST. I have been a patient of hers for over 7 years. Osteoarthritis of the shoulder was limiting even the simplest activities for me and it caused excruciating pain. With her treatment plan and medications I am enjoying being active with my grandchildren again. This is priceless. Her office staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Ananth and her caring ways have made my life so much better.
