Being ex military I enjoy her bed side manner straight and to the point, I guess this is not for everyone. She ask about me and my family she cares about you as a person and your quality of life. Dr Ravula has treated my cronic back & neck issues for years with injections and Meds she does not believe in over medication. A lot can be accomplished in five minutes when you are on the same page!

My wife had Ravula inject her Knees with Synvisc for arthritis pain. Dr Ravula gave us a prescription for us to supply the Synvisc. When I ordered the drug I found that it was only available through a specialty pharmacy by mail. Because of scheduling pressure I had to approve $2600 out of my pocket which ultimately was not approved by Medicare because it would need to be purchased by the doctor to be covered. I don't understand why she handled it that way. It did not help my wife's pain.

She is a qualified pain specialist, but does not want to spend any time speaking with mere mortals. Answer her questions quickly and say nothing else, and you may be ok.
in Mckinney, TX |
Appreciated concern re level of opiates prescribed. Nurse rude-lies. Said Dr. couldn't make a script at a scheduled procedure-lack of privacy. I ignored-Dr. obligingly wrote script following the procedure. Dr. was to be on vacation when my 30 day appt. should be scheduled. Asked for a script dated at that appointment time. Nurse refused-said against the law. Law provides for making scripts up to 90 days, limited to 30 days for a script. Did so at prior appt. I refuse treatment

I was skeptical about seeing Dr. RR after reading some reviews here. My PCP assured me that Dr. RR is an excellent physician and suggested that I at least have a consultation with her. I had been to another pain physician before who over-prescribed medications and made me feel like a zomby. I did listen to my PCP and saw Dr. RR. She worked out a 'weaning protocol' and started me on medications that are non-addicting. She also prescribed a TENS unit and tried injections. I now have my life back!
in Garland, TX |
Wouldn't even discuss other past diagnoses or take genetic condition into consideration for treatment options. Snapped at me for not being cooperative. Spent less than 5 minutes with me in total. As she was heading for the door, I asked about a specific pain issue and she said it wasn't related and that the procedure she recommended wouldn't address that, then walked out.
in Allen, Texas |
Terrible bed side manner. Zero compassion. Do NOT recommend!
