Patient Comments (2)
in Union, KY |
Did not like him. He never examined ME, only looked at my X-rays. Never even a hand shake. He was a hologram. I could have done an e-visit with him and it wouldn't have made a difference. I didn't get relief and had to push him to go to the next step. I would never refer anyone to him. I'd go to an unknown board certified doctor before I would ever return to him.

I have had 2 back surgerys I have been to 3 surgeons in nc and they looked at my MRI and said its just scare tissue on nerve and nothing they could do just go back to work I continued to have bad pain I took a chance went to laser spine Dr Raj Kakarlapudi listen very good said I needed a fusion hated to do it because I was so young I ask can you not clean out scare tissue he said yes and burn nerve endings could not guarantee how long of a fix well he found bone spur MRI didn't show feel great
