I have to say, if he could be my Dr. for everything he totally would be! I LOVE HIM! Very friendly, caring, and amazing at what he does! He removed my tonsils when I was 20-22. I was TERRIFIED. After my surgery he was explaining what to expect to my parents. The recovery wasn’t too bad like people were telling me! I see his nurse practitioner and she’s just as great!

I didn't know anything about dR Nadu but what hurt me is that when I got to the office the clerk told me that I had to pay 100.00 which my co pay is 50.00 and 400.00 deductible. I think that the insurance was file incorrectly but he didn't even try to help me as a patient. He was highly recommend but he has no hear. It is it about the dollar in my opinion. By the way he would not see me at all. so if you go to him make sure you got your finances in order or you might want to call to see what your cost will be before you get there

Dr. Naidu clipped my son’s lip and tongue ties in May 2018. He was incredibly kind, very thorough in explaining everything, and even gave me his cell number so I could check in on recovery.

My son is 6 Days old, the only doctor who made us feel better in these 6 days and explained everything to us was Dr. Naidu. He calmed our fears, was patient and gave us enough confidence. Thank you doctor!!!

Dr. Naidu is very thorough, but very good with patients. I have seen him for chronic sinus infections and then he performed my sinus surgery. It went better than could have been expected and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I had polyps removed from a few of my sinus cavities. It has been a real game changer. I have more energy and feel so much better. I liked that Dr. Naidu explores all nonsurgical options first. I had little pain with the surgery and recovery was much easier than I thought it would be. Dr. Naidu answered all of my questions and made sure my husband knew how to help me recover. Dr. Naidu really loves what he does and it shows. He was like a proud papa when he should be the before and after pictures of my sinuses (I asked about how much he did.... he won’t just show you these without warning :-) ). I would recommend him to anyone that has their everyday quality of life reduced by sinus issues. Two thumbs up.

Dr. Naidu has performed 2 procedures on my child so I can personally attest to the fact that his bedside manner is impeccable and he is an outstanding surgeon. Dr. Naidu goes out of his way to make his patients and their family members feel comfortable and knowledgeable. He makes himself available at all time in case his patients have concerns or problems and addresses them immediately and professionally.

Excellent physician with great work ethics. He did my sons tonsillectomy and he did great. He didnt feel that much pain and took pain medicine only 3 times. Dr Naidu is a hard worker, rounded at 5 am in the morning. He called us twice to check on my son to make sure he is doing good. Very happy with the care my son got.

Dr. Naidu and his staff are amazing!!! The first time that I went to see him I was able to get in to see him at the Germantown office within a couple of days of calling. When we decided that surgery was what needed to be done - I could not ask for better treatment. He is an awesome doctor and I am glad that I was referred to him.

Dr. Naidu is wonderful. He took such good care of our son. He even sat on the floor and played with him to make him feel more comfortable in the office. He explained the procedure thoroughly, explained post-op care, and personally called that night to check on him.

First met Dr. Naidu in Baptist ER in July. I was in the hospital three days . Dr. Naidu preformed surgery and was very attentive before and after. I had another surgery two months later and Dr. Naidu was very attentive again. I felt like I was his only patient!

Although Dr. Naidu was great with my child, his office staff is terrible. My son had surgery and we had to move out of state a few days later. The office staff was notified of this move, however, the bill was never forwarded to me. The office staff made no attempt to call my cell. The bill was turned over to collections and was then reported on my credit history almost immediately. We are not talking thousands of dollars, either. The bill was around $400, which I paid when contacted.

Dr. Naidu has provided excellent care for my family for almost ten years and I can't imagine trusting any other ENT to meet our needs. He is very knowledgable and highly skilled. He is patient and takes time to ensure that patients understand the treatment plan/process and that their concerns are also addressed. I never feel rushed by him and my kids are always at ease during our visits with him. He's a gem and I highly recommend him!
