The best Neuro Dr I have been ever met. I have been seen by more than 5 different Neuro Specialists throughout the many years I have suffered migraines since I was a teenager. Dr Lekkala was the only one who truly listened and did tests. She took time to listen to my complaints. She ran multiple physical and medical tests to determine the cause. She was conservative with prescriptions which I was fine with many suggestions of ways to relieve the pain without medicine. She is a fantastic Neuro in my opinion.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lekkala for many years now. She has always been so caring and takes her time to really try and understand the issue you are having. Not only is she attentive to your medical needs but also gets to know you on a personal level. She does her best to find any solution necessary and in my case I’m finally closer to living a migraine free life !

I am so grateful for Dr. Madhavi Lekkala. I have been suffering from migraines for many years, and tried so many medications but my migraines kept increasing in frequency and duration. Dr. Lakkala understood, cared, and designed a course of treatment that has improved the quality of my life dramatically. She not only cares about the my condition, but truly cares about the patient. She asks me about my kids, remembers details, and is always striving to give me the best possible care.

Dr. Lekkala has been my neurologist for many years now. She is an exceptionally attentive, personable, and knowledge physician. She always has time to answers my questions and is interested in me as a whole patient, not just as a neuro patient.

Dr. Lekkala is kind and thorough, she has treated my migraines and also a couple of other issues. When I had symptoms that weren't in her specialty, she quickly ordered some initial tests and submitted an immediate referral to the appropriate specialist. She is great and I would recommend her to anyone!
