Dr. Durbhakula treated me twice for trigger finger (in two different fingers). He was always the consummate professional, and his caring attention to detail, his genuine concern, and his expert explanation of the skeletal hand anatomy was amazing. He is a rare find find that I would highly recommend.

Mahidhar Durbhakula is the consummate physician. When I went into his office I had a broken wrist and spirit. He fielded every one of my grumpy question patiently, going so far as to call Switzerland to answer one about titanium. He performed extremely difficult surgery on me, and gave me back my wrist. I have regained incredible flexibility in both directions and the pain is gone.He is a doctor among doctors and a good, kind, decent man as well. God bless this great soul and surgeon!
