Dr. Budampati, is a very knowledgeable and professional provider. I have had back and leg pain for some time and Dr. B developed a plan tailored for me that so far has worked out well. My pain levels overall have been reduced and I have my life back. I still can't play tennis, but now I can at least walk from my car to the court. I recommend her with enthusiasm.

I saw Dr. Budampati for a number of years. She does not have any bedside manner to be clear. Professional I suppose. But my treatment was largely to just inject me with steroids which made me gain weight and then tell me I needed to lose more weight. I think it was clear from my visits she didn’t like me which was problematic. Anyone outside the norm for her is an issue. I moved away and went to a different specialist and pain management doctor and they started me a new treatment plan that addresses my issues without steroid injections and I’ve lost a great amount of weight and am much healthier than I was under her treatment. I feel like I was just a pin cushion there.

By the time I saw her I was in a great deal of pain, and concerned that she would recommend pain killers rather than trying to determine the cause. I was so wrong. She spent a long time with me, finding out what more about my activity levels, lifestyle, goals, and pain levels. For the fist time in I don't know how long I felt like I had a doctor who HEARD me. She mapped out a strategy, not one based on massive amounts of drugs, but thoughtful diagnostic processes. Highly recommend

Dr. Budampati and PA. Tiffany Dietz are the absolute best tag team in town when dealing with spinal pain and/or injury. Dr. B has cared for me since my spinal surgery in August of 2011. I see her about every 2 to 3 years and she and her team have been wonderful at keeping my pain at bay. Recently I experienced some neck and shoulder pain and the team worked very hard to re-mediate what ended up being a surgical fusion. No one has ever worked this hard to help me avoid a surgery. Great Staff!

Dr. Suneeth Budampati is very caring and patient as she assesses my reasons for pain. I am very comfortable with her and have confidence that she can help me. I also suggest strongly if you go to the National Spine and Pain Center in Shirlington, Virginia that you ask if PA Ms. Tiffany K. Dietz is available before you see Dr. Budampati. Ms. Dietz took all my initial information and gave me some terrific counsel. I recommend them highly .

Dr. B was fabulous with my long term issues. I am not pleased with the Arlington office off 395. I've been on same medications and random screenings for 9+ years with absolutely no issues. 1st one here and they screw it up. I'll be transferring back to Walker Lane for next month's PostOp. I hate to drop Dr. B - she is a caring compassionate physician however my integrity as a person & minister is too important to have inhouse Labs mishandled. Primary's tests & PreOp Tox. perfect 3 days later.

Great place to go if you want pills and shots done by her Physician Assistants. Barely spoke to me in three visits, and when she did she did not listen to my concerns nor did she ever even point at my spine to determine where my pain was. I had an MRI of my neck for an injury that I had, yet the pain was in my back and she told me it would go away on it’s own which it did not. She told me I could go back to everyday life while I had three limbs that were numb from a pinched nerve. BAD!

Beware of online reviews. if you are looking for a competent and compassionate doctor, she is the right one. She also expects a lot of responsibilityandownership from her patients in their treatment planand recovery process. I like that kind of treatment, it works for me. if you are looking to just get whatyou want, or pain pills for the rest of your life, that is not her style.

She was very mean to me. My mother had accompanied me on this visit because I was in so much pain that I couldn't drive myself. Dr. Budampati yelled at me like I was a child and treated me very disrespectfully because I asked her questions about the plan of treatment that made me nervous. Clearly her bedside manners are repulsive and I will never return.

Doctor Budampati is the consummate doctor; she always puts me at ease, always has a smile, and always has a positive attitude. I have complete trust in her proficiency each time she has to give me an epidural.

Dr. B and her PA staff are awesome. The receptionists and front office however need lessons in not rushing the patient and being so curt and abrupt. Dr. B has a gifted set of hands and is extremely good at her job. Scheduling is tough but that's because she's in high demand, so make appointment well in advance.

If you are already on pain meds get ready to be treated like a drug addict. You have to bring in your pill bottle so they can count how many pills you have. They interrogated me about pain meds I got from other doctors when I fell. They make you do urine tests even if there is no reason to expect abuse. The doctor wouldn't even see my brother. who also has multiple chronic pain issues, because of the meds he is on. In my opinion she has a God complex. She knows she can give and take away.
