About Me

Care Philosophy

As a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Doctor) and Pain specialist, I evaluate to find out what is causing the pain and limitation in function, and offer treatment to make it better. When a condition cannot be reversed, I endeavor to make it manageable. While many of my recommendations involve injection and therapies, a lot could be accomplished just by knowing what the issue is.

I would not recommend. Dr. Krishnamurthy's profile states that he is devoted to helping patients relieve their pain but after all of my effort to make a first appointment he turned me away. I felt that I didn't matter and it was difficult to fill out all of the forms, make a long trip to see him only to be denied care. Extremely disappointing I wish I would have not even made the effort. The only thing that resulted from my appt. with Dr. Krishnamurthy was to severely exacerbate my pain and stress.

After suffering from Sciatica pain in rt.and left side for almost a year and total 3 epidural and knee injections, I decided to get a second opinion. Dr Krishnamurthy treated me and I have felt much better, pain gone just some tingling left.He is gentle ,efficient,sympathetic and professionally superb. The ease of getting appointment was an added bonus. I would recommend him without any hesitation. The best Pain Interventionalist around Twin Cities !

Dr K. is friendly, smart and caring. He uses anatomy books to show diagnoses and treatment options. I have seen many specialists, he is impressive at a time when many Dr's are not. Injections were easy and quick.

For the past 2 years the pain in foot & leg from a work injury has been unbearable. In about 10 minutes Dr. K found the problem & gave relief from the pain for the first time. He is a GREAT Dr.!

Dr. Krishnamurthy has helped my mother immensely. She has osteo arthritis and back issues. He is kind, he listens to her concerns and comes up with a plan of action. I would recommend him highly and have recommended him to many friends and family members in need of help for chronic pain.

Finally making progress on 15+ years of back and leg pain. So happy that he is willing to dig for the cause instead of just treating symptoms.

Dr. K was my doctor for many years at Sister Kenny at Abbott NW. He always called me by my name and was so interested in what I had to say and answered my questions in ways I could understand. I was sad when he left Sister Kenny but am happy I have found him once again. No matter how long between appointments he was always up to date on my chart and progress. He does talk a little fast sometimes but all you have to do is ask him to repeat himself slowly. Dr. K is very caring. Ines Lochart
