Dr. Prasad inspires confidence by takng time to explain the condition, the treatment plan and what to expect. He's always pleasant and reassuring and has helped me cope with a rather scary problem. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Referred to Dr Prasad for a migraine from my primary care physician. He seemed to lack the skill or maybe didn't care to help me. He continually ask if I had "hit my head" or "been in an accident". Because I could not answer yes to these questions, he seemed at a loss as to how to treat my headache. I paid out of pocket for the MRI ($950) and he didn't look at it. Since this time, I have a new DR, who found significant bone spurs, nerve impingement and disc disease causing the migraines.

I am very picky about the physicians I see, and I prefer to see physicians who are at least rated a 4 - 4.5 stars. I was worried that I wouldn't feel comfortable with Dr. Prasad based on some of the reviews, but as it turns out, I was very pleased with Dr. Prasad. There was little wait time, and I feel Dr. Prasad took sufficient time with me and recommended the appropriate tests. He got back to me very promptly with the MRI results. Great doc in my opinion!!

great doctor, did not have to wait long; finally got relief of my headaches
Dr. Persaud has absolutely no knowledge of medication interactions or side effects. This man has no idea how to explain to his patient what side effects are to certain medications. Do your own homework with your pharmacist before accepting any type of medication or treatment from this man. Because he will tell you that there are no side effects to the medications that he prescribes.

Dr. Prasad was able to relieve my chronic migraines. I have seen several doctors. I really appreciate his thorough knowledge and efficiency. His staff is always courteous and helpful.
in Brentwood, TN |
Wonderful doctor. Finally I found someone who cured my headaches. Very efficient - I was in and out of his office, as a new patient, in under an hour. Fastest I've ever been seen as a new patient.
in Nashville, TN |
On every occasion I saw Dr. Prasad, and particularly the last, he displayed a depth of ignorance that I've never before encountered in a doctor regarding the medical conditions he is purportedly qualified to treat. I have the medical/scientific background to know that any knowledge he has is woefully out of date with current research. His ability for critical thinking seems to be totally absent, and evidence-based medicine appears to play no role in his practice. I expect both at a minimum.
