Excellent doctor, caring, took his time listening to my thoughts and concerns. Very helpful and kind. Everyone in his office treated me very well, courteous, personable and helpful dealing with my insurance and setting up the tests that Dr Modugu had requested I get. A very pleasant overall experience with a wonderful doctor.

His office is the most unprofessional group of people. They have been stringing along my husband for 3 months and continuously messing up issues with our insurance causing him to still not received the proper care he needs. They don't even follow up with us we have to call their office multiple times a day to get a hold of someone who even slightly knows what they are talking about. We have never waited shorter than an hour to see the doctor. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR!

I found Dr. Modugu very condescending. He genuinely spent 5 minutes with me on my first visit and told me multiple times I am too young to be in this kind of pain, even though I have been to physical therapy multiple times and it has been documented with my primary care doctor. It seemed as if he believed I was making it up. He simply said I should go to the gym and my back pain should go away,even though I told him I tried the gym but would get muscle spasms. I don’t plan on returning.

Dr. Modugu prescribed a pain killer that seriously interferes with another medicine I was taking. Despite having given his staff a typed list of prescriptions, he still prescribed this medication with no mention of possible deadly interactions. The pharmacist caught the potentially dangerous interaction after I tried refilling the other medication. At that point I had been on the pain meds for 3 weeks. When I called Dr. Modugu's office and explained, he never called back. Such arrogance.

If you have ever experienced excruciating pain, you know that you would do ANYTHING for relief. Dr. Modugu provides that relief in a comprehensive, targeted approach that greatly lessens or eliminates that pain. I have been his patient for more than 20 years. I recommend friends and family to Dr. Modugu. We are thankful for the service he provides. Life would be too painful to live without his expertise.

When first seeing Dr Moduga he told me he was going to have to start cutting my meds and was very worried bc I have been on such high doses for years and years but now have been with him for 18 months and could not be happier. He has gotton me on the lowest doses I have ever been since my failed back surgery's and I am in VERY BAD pain but the rest of my body and my mind feel better and I thank him for that. A true professional. I am glad he is my Dr. Thank You Dr Sathish David Forschner

Dr Modugu is a magician. He is thorough and a brilliant diagnostician. While he isn't "Needle happy', he is assertive with his treatment in An effort to relieve pain swiftly and gently. I have gone from completely incapacitated from back and shoulder and was able to resume my normal activities in less than a week after treatment. The office staff is friendly, responsive and kind. Pain is an everyday struggle for me and thanks to Dr M.... I am back in action.

Dr. Modugu is & has been one of a kind in the pain management speciality. He has been my Dr. for over 9 years. After 9 spinal surgeries & having seen many doctors throughout NY State, he is the best. Although I have moved twice & much further away, I still see him regularly. Under his care, my quality of life has increased to a level that i could have never dreamed of. He is thorough, kind, respectful, supportive & proactive. The staff is an outstanding team of professionals. Perfection!!!

I am a long time patient of Dr Modugu since 2002. I have two fractures in my lower lumbar. If it wasn't for Dr Modugu's treatments I would not be ale to work, I would be on long term disability or worse have unpredictable surgery that may not have me fully functional. I thank this man every time I see him for the longevity of my career - I work in the Construction/Engineering profession which puts me in the field on most days.

Ive been a patient of Doctor Modugu's since 2007. I sought his practice out after a motor vehicle crash that resulted in cervical disc injuries and radiating pain. I've seen Dr. M monthly since and believe that I am well-suited to form an opinion on him & his practice. Dr. M is thorough & balances a PT's pain needs with responsible prescribing. He will always try to minimize pain via other means rather than increasing pain meds & performs injections in office. He has advised me about surgery.
