Restored my ability to walk free from any pain. Back surgery involved some complications but I was able to walk immediately after leaving recovery room. Absolutely the best staff I've ever dealt with. Light hearted but caring and make you feel like you're the only patient in their world. Timely, no waiting. SK is also not 'cut happy' but also does not BS you--gets straight to the point.

Dr. Karuppiah performed spinal fusion on me. He explained the procedure and was very patient explaining the procedure. I was very fortunate my doctor referred me to him!

Excellent Dr. After looking at MRI of spine he knew I needed surgery. Had it done in Sept of 2018. Excellent care from Priscila, Sunny, Terry, Dawn and Ashlea, his office staff.

Dr. SK is very a skilled & very kind/humble neurosurgeon. He immediately saw in my husband's MRI a herniation that other doctors didn't see (1 orthopedic surgeon & 1 Mayo Clinic/Jacksonville spine specialist). We opted for surgery & he performed a unilateral MIS TLIF. Only 2 wks post-op & my husband is now pain free for the first time in 8 months. His PA Priscilla is amazing! Dr. SK is a great neurosurgeon well-loved by his staff, hospital nurses, patients (us). We feel lucky to find him.

We feel so blessed to have found Dr. Karuppiah to perform my back surgery, fusing two vertebrates. My sciatic pain in my leg was gone immediately. He has given me back quality life after months and months of severe pain. He and his staff were just wonderful and we can't say enough about his wonderful PA-C Priscila Marques. Everyone was just great and we highly recommend them.

I am a snowbird from Michigan. When I started having back problems here in Florida I was really concerned. My family doctor recommended Dr S K and I’m very happy that he did. Dr S K explained what the MRI meant in simple words and explained what my options were. He gave me the facts and let me decide what to do next. He said that there was a chance that my problem might correct itself. There was no pressure put on me. When my back acts up again, I will definitely call Dr S K !!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. SK and his PA Priscilla and staff. Right from the first appointment I knew I had made the right choice to come to them! They took the time to explain exactly what would happen during surgery and I was so comfortable right from the beginning. Thank you Dr SK and Priscilla for taking such good care of me. Highly recommend them !

Dr. Karuppiah removed a 2x3cm glioblastoma brain tumor for my 78 year old father 16 months ago. Due to his great skill my father is doing great, although much slower mentally and physically. He had 6 mo of chemo, 60 radiation treatments (2/day), starting at 9 months he started Avastin treatments. He has some residual scar tissue or pseudo tumor uptake on MRIs but it looks better every 8 weeks so it likely is not a new GBM. Patricia, his NP is pure evil and full of hatred in her soul.

I would reccommend Dr Karuppiah (SK) EXCELLENT +. I'm approx five weeks out of surgery and am pain free. As a senior I've been to many doctors but this man genuinely cares about the patient. He and his PA (Priscila Marques) took the time to explain the procedure and continued through post op and the latest follow up. I cannot praise them enough. The Dr, his PA, Nurse, and entire office staff were not only friendly but awesome. Would I return for future surgery) if needed) you betcha!! 5+Stars!
