What People Say About Dr. Padmaja Neelaveni, MD
Reply
Would not listen to my wife who kept telling her that her mother was not herself. Everything was dismissed as dementia. Turns out, her internist had her on two medications that she had been off of for over two years. Side effects: delirium and hallucinations. What????? Now at rehab center, off of meds for about 5 days, and guess what? She is completely lucid. Imagine that, a daughter knowing her mother's personality. If she just would have listened...

I was VERY nervous about getting my EMG done (especially after watching too many You Tube videos on the topic) - she made me feel so comfortable and I walked out of there saying that was easy!
