The Santa Cruz area is very fortunate to have Dr. Palakurthy. He is intelligent, personable, and very knowledgable. He truly listens and his responses indicate careful reflection on his part. I will recommend him to friends and family in need of an excellent internist. Office staff is efficient and wait times are short.

I have a neurological problem that has no cure at this time. The discomfort and disabilities vary among patients and even within each day of individual patients. Dr. Palakurthy is well focused on my needs and has provided smart strategies for solving some of them. I would trust Dr. Palakurthy with any medical issue, because his deep curiosity and acceptance of challenges would most likely lead him to some type of solution or insight.

Dr. Palakurthy's warm smile tells me that he's happy to be my doctor. His skillful questioning technique reflects his intelligence and his geniune interest in improving my health. His recommendations are well considered, up-to-date, and not demands for cooperation. He takes time to understand my situation and preference of treatments. Dr. Palakurthy was highly recommended by a well-respected local primary doctor who could not accept new patients due to his upcoming retirement.
