Patient Comments (23)
Waterford, MI |
Prescribed a medication that was not in the best interest of the patients medical condition and contradicted himself on forms for the patient to receive assistance.
in Davisburg, MI |
If it's at all possible to turn robotic knee replacement into a pleasant experience, Dr. Nallamothu and his entire staff certainly rose to the occasion. I can't imagine a more competent surgeon!
Rochester, MI |
He happened to be in the hospital doing a surgery when I came in from a car accident.. he made time and stayed late just to make sure I got surgery done that night instead of going home and coming back a week later. Very impressed and I have not experienced even one complaint.
in Milford, Mi |
Dr. Nallamothu is a wonderful surgeon. He is up to date on all new ortho techniques and very well informed and experienced . Bedside manner is the best . He listens and treats you like family . Before and after surgery care is top notch !
Clarkston, MI |
Very knowledgeable surgeon, that takes good care of his patients.
in Clarkston, MI |
I cannot say enough good words about Dr. Nallamothu. He treated me with great dignity and respect, sat down with me to explain my options, and did not provide any pressure whatsoever. He is very compassionate and kind and truly treated me as part of the team in arranging my surgery and therapy.
Clarkston |
Dr. Nallamothu has cared for both my son and myself. He has wonderful "bedside mannerisms" and is extremely quick in attending to our needs. He even performed surgery on my son on a Sunday in June when he was not "officially on call". We highly recommend him!
Clarkston, MI |
Dr. Nallamothu goes above and beyond when it comes to personal attention and care. I went to him for my shoulder and my daughter for her back. I highly recommend him.
in Waterford, MI |
Dr. Nallamothu is one of the most caring people you will ever meet. He is an excellent doctor.
Davisburg, MI |
Dr. Nallamothu gave me outstanding care in an extremely timely manner. His bedside manner as well as his ability to treat my orthopedic need were outstanding. At a very stressful time he had the ability to make me feel confident with how I was being treated. He provided quick, thorough, and excellent care. I would recommend Dr. Nallamothu to my family and friends without hesitation.
in Clarkston |
Great work. Knows his stuff. Follows up. A very nice professional.
in Clarkston, MI |
Great Doctor!! Dr. Nallamothu immediately knew what issues I had with my feet once he examined them. Dr. Nallamothu gave me options and today I am currently pain free without surgery. Dr. Nallamothu is easy to talk to and listens carefully to the patient. I have already recommended Dr. Nallamothu to family and friends and they have all been very happy with their results.

he's a great doctor. I'm glad I was able to get an appointment with him.
Troy, MI |
Dr. Nallamothu is a good listener and a skilled professional. He's treated myself and several family members over the past 10+ years for various sports injuries, broken bones, joint problems and degenerative conditions. I would highly recommend visiting him if you're looking for an orthopedic surgeon.
in Clarkston , MI |
Very professional and carrying. We had a great experience.
in Redford MI |
I have no problems after knee surgery a few years ago...great job.
in Clarkston, MI |
Absolutely the best around! Extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and most importantly the best at what he does. My son first went to him when he broke his collarbone while downhill skiing. He took the time to explain everything to him and make sure that my son understood exactly what he seeing on his x-ray. His bedside manner is fantastic and he truly is the best in the field. We have referred quite a few friends to him for many different reasons and they are all equally as happy.
Strongsville, OH |
Dr. Nallamothu has been very nice and accommodating for my family and our children. Unfortunately, we have had a number of visits for broken bones! very good advice and treatment.
