Dr. Ainapudi is so special and an excellent doctor no matter what situation you present him with. He is kind and knowledgable in all areas of his speciality. I highly recommend him and have many times.

Where do I even begin? Dr. Ainapudi truly is the best doctor out there. It's such a pleasure to finally have a doctor that listens to your concerns and takes the time to fully explain why/what you are experiencing. He gives you all the time you need to discuss your condition and will never rush you out of the office. The office staff is just as caring as he is and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Ainapudi.

It is with great pleasure I share my thoughts about this Dr. He is extremely compassionate and knowledgeable. He has a way of putting your mind at ease when you are stressing out about your medical condition. He will sit and listen to your questions and gives you all the time you need to talk. His staff must be hand picked by him, as they are just as kind and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Ainapudi - James Fitzpatrick

The Doctor is one of the few that actually LISTEN to you, rather than having one foot out the exam room door as you are asking serious questions about something that scares the snot out of you. Most drs. eyes roll if you have a query. Not this guy. He puts down the chart,pulls up a chair-and tirelessly explains the whats,wheres, and the whys. He is also completely on board with food issues and wont give you the million mile stare should you query him on food and your issues.

By far the most caring Doctor I have ever met in the 40 I have been an adult to choose my own physicians. In a time when I needed a colonoscopy for which I was extremely apprehensive, Dr Ainapudi put me at ease and took the time to explain the procedure and answering all my questions. I have had many doctors over the years that I regard very highly, but I do feel that due to the nature of this procedure, Dr. Ainapudi deserves very special recognition for his excellence.

This doctor is wonderful. Takes time to listen and also explain things. He has a wonderful demeanor. He also preformed my colonoscopy and while the prep was not fun the procedure itself was a breeze. No pain. Conscious sedation. Office is a little hard to get a hold of sometimes because its only 2 people and one deals with insurance companies I think, but the doctor himself is a very compasionate man. Will recommend him to friends getting endoscopies.

Dr. Ianapudi is one of the most caring and knowledgeable doctors I have ever been to. He is so comforting and helping. I would recommend him highly. His office staff is wonderful!!!
