I found Dr. V to be knowledgeable, compassionate and highly skilled. His timely diagnosis and action saved me from total hearing loss. I think he is a great doctor and an admirable human being; I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ventrapragada is the best! I am about to have my second nasal polyp removal surgery and I wouldn't trust anyone else to do it! His bedside manner is absolutely wonderful...the difference between him and others is that he actually cares! I went to a different ENT doctor before him and let me just say I am so glad I wanted to get a second opinion!

Can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Ventrapragada. He's smart, compassionate, caring, friendly and he makes you feel like he's known you forever. Can't thank him enough for the wonderful care he gave me. Without a doubt, he is a 5 star doctor. Would recommend him above any other doctor. He knows his medicine and knows how to treat patients. Can't ask for anything more. Thank you, Dr. V and also to his wonderful staff.
