What People Say About Dr. Spriha Pavuluri, MD

She is a great doctor. The practice however has gone down the drain over the last few years and all the good nurse practitioners and MD's are leaving. The staff were great and friendly, but lately have developed an "I don't care attitude". I would return to Burlington Neurology only because driving to Iowa City is a pain in the...you know.

Amazing how different the reviews are here. I wonder if it is the difference in afflictions because mine are rare to somewhat rare (erythromelalgia, brachio radial pruritis and restless leg syndrome, among others). My time was wasted at this office. I went first to see Dr. Pavuluri in Fairfield and was prescribed a medicine plus she tripled a med I was all ready taking. I assumed the follow up appointment was again in Fairfield. I wasn't told any differently and it WAS NOT on the paperwork I was given. The day before the appointment I received a reminder call and only then found that it was to be in Ft. Madison. A longer drive for us. Upon going in to the appointment the doctor said she could no longer help me (I had called in after taking the medicines and reported that it caused a severe drop in BP and high heart rate). To make it worse they were going to have me come back! To keep renewing medication! The reception staff was very rude as well!

Awful! Once test results were in she suggested that my daughter was "drug seeking" and needed a therapist. We have a tremendous amount of neurological family history, from strokes, brain aneurysm, and MS. She obviously wasn't willing to look further to find a diagnosis. No patient should walk out of an office looking for answers that result in "crazy" or drug addiction accusations. Shame on YOU!

She is a very good doctor and I don't mind driving up to West Burlington to see her. It is easier to get appointments with her than at UIowa which is a longer drive. She was trained at UIowa so I am sure her standard is their standard. Cant say the same about her staff though. They are the worst I have encountered and do not reflect the good Iowan values that is expected of them. She should fire her team and hire new ones. 5 stars for the Doc, 0 Stars for her staff.

HORRIBLE! I would rate this doctor and her staff a ZERO! I have been to many doctors and have NEVER experienced anything like this in my life! This dr. does not want to spend more than 3 minutes with you - even after an MRI. Trying to get answers is like pulling teeth. Most of the medical staff on the phone are downright rude! Today was the last straw! After 2 calls, I waited 4 days and FINALLY got a phone call that lasted 21 SECONDS from a rude nurse. I'm DONE! Do NOT waste your money!

she is a very good doctor and her knowledge of the medical field is second to none. I have made many visits to her office from before she joined the practice and I like her approach to treating patients. The wait times however are getting higher lately, which is an inconvenience.

I highly recommend Dr. Spriah Pavuluri. She is a very compassionate doctor who gives the time one would expect to explain your problems to her. She is very busy as there are not many neurologists in Southeast Iowa so there is a long wait for an appointment with her, but she is worth the wait.

I was referred to Dr. Pavuluri, MD by SSDI for exam for disability. She refused to continue the exam because I was too sick (to weak) to complete the exam. How can someone be too sick for disability??? Completely disappointed in her ability.

I visited her at the Burlington office. She is very understanding and works with you to find the best possible way to address the issues. I have an injury from long time ago which has changed my life for ever. Nothing can change it or make it go away but having her treat me and guide me makes me feel properly cared for and prevents further damage and deterioration I feel. Her staff are very polite too and make sure you are wasting no time during your visits.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Spriha Pavuluri. She is clearly one of the best doctors I visited. She spends time with you during each appointment and does not rush you. A very charming person with a lovely smile.

Dr. Pavuluri is very knowledgeable and is assuring with her patients. Her confidence makes you feel like you are in safe and good hands. She follows up with her patients and make sure you understand what steps need to be taken or what to do next and she never gives up on you. In one word, she is very passionate with her work. I will recommend her to friends and family.
