What People Say About Dr. Pavan Chepyala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I would choose zero stars if possible. After my husbands procedure, this doctor came into the room. I was giving my husband a sip of water. The doctor never introduced himself, said about 2 sentences and left. I had questions. The nurse literally speed walked to try to catch up with him to get answers. His answer was vague, to call the office. He makes pretty good money for being a jerk. I wouldn’t let him work on my dog.

I did not even meet the doctor before the procedure. He was in the room while I was being prepped, but never came over, even to say "hello". This does not sit well with me. You're working on ME, not my car! I was still significantly under sedation when he came into the recovery room, to the degree that I can't even remember having any exchange with him. Good thing my spouse was there!
