I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kanuru for many years. I’ve learned first hand that Pain has a way of consuming your life in ways a person can’t comprehend unless they’ve experienced it themselves. The path forward is long and arduous and it’s up to you to choose to move forward or be left behind as friends and family move on with their lives. Any unchecked agony caused by an accident or degenerative condition can, has or will bring you to a place you do not want to be unless you seek the proper Care that a physician experienced in the field of pain control can provide. Dr. Kanuru is the best that I have found and his staff has proven themselves both professional and compassionate allowing me the important balance between a more comfortable life and the unbearable constant pain I had found myself in. The advanced medical technologies available today can be provided by Dr. Kanuru and his staff allowing the patient to focus on the path to recovery and a better functioning way of life.

Dr. Kanuru and his staff have restored my quality of life to a tolerable, livable status. Without their care and help I would not even be able to enjoy my garden or go for walks on warm summer days. Thank you again!!

Very courteous and professional dr. Unlike most doctors it seems like he actually cares to hear what the patient has to say. Every time I visit I feel as if me being there is important to him and the staff. Every time I visit Mary makes me feel right at home. Thank you so much for being my doctor.
