Learn about Dr. Sundrani

Care Philosophy

I adhere to the principles outlined by the American Board of Neurological Surgery. First, meet with the patients and family to improve their understanding of their disorder by means of direct face to face communication, aided by models and discussion of the imaging studies, and only then, discuss treatment options. I keep in mind our discipline's motto-first, do no harm. I encourage non-operative, conservative measures first; that failing then a sugrical option is discussed. I also encourage open discussion of the surgical intervention or medical outcome and expectactions to see what can be done to achieve better results.

Patient Comments (2)
in El Paso, TX |
Worst possible office staff, they are not polite, friendly or helpful. They are rude and short with patients. The front desk attendant Martha hung up on me twice. They don't answer the phones, tried reaching out to them 3 days. If they are understaffed they need to hire more people. Not organized one bit, they turned away my 90 year old aunt away because of their office errors and on the same day put my mother to wait in an A/C room when she complained they forgot about her. Horrible experience!
El Paso, TX |
I don't even give him a star. Poor bed side manner, terrible communication and follow up care after surgery . Does not call pts, hospital and other drs calls. Do not recommend this surgeon at all, you or loved one will not get good or even fair medical treatment. Please find another surgeon.
