Dr. B is an amazing physician and he has an amazing staff. My son is medically fragile and I can’t imagine taking him to anyone else. Dr B takes all of my concerns serious and makes sure I feel comfortable before he leaves the room. He is completely thorough and explains things in a way for anyone to understand. My son has seen the NP for a sick visit and she was just as wonderful. I highly recommend Dr B and his office!

Dr Bhoopalam is the absolute best! He takes time to explain things and really cares to get to know his patients. He is excellent with both of my children and instantly puts them at ease. He is extremely knowledgable but explains things in ways that I understand. Would highly recommend him to everyone!!

Dr. Bhoopalam is very thorough and takes his time with each patient. He makes sure all questions are answered before we leave the office. We switched from a different physician a year ago, and couldn't be happier with our decision.
