Dr. Kottapalli is an awesome doctor, very caring and friendly. He took care of a very serious problem I had and I am so grateful for the care he gave me. His nurses, especially nurse Votika Mitchell, she was so patient and kind and made me feel not afraid, she is the best! Great staff! Thanks to each of you that played a part in making each of my visits pleasant.

Dr. K. is the man. He has taken excellent care of me for the last 4 years. When I was diagnosed with an Infectious disease. I thought my life was basically over. However, Dr. K. has pulled me from being very, very ill to a great productive life. I love Dr. k. and would not hesitate to refer him and or suggest him. My sister is a registered nurse and she does not give a lot of compliments or suggest a lot of doctors to people, but she always brag and tell our family and friends about Dr. K.

Dr. Kottapalli's office treated my wife, Geraldine Gilbert, while in Methodist Charlton from 8/14/15 to 9/3/15. His charges totaled $830. After the insurance paid his office billed me $75.63 which I paid on 12/29/15. I then received a bill dated 12/31/15 for $55.78 which means they received a subsequent insurance payment. As a result, he owes me $19.85. I have called his billing office 3 times and went by his office 1 time. As of 3/12/16 he has not reimbursed me. Bill Gilbert
