I was suffering with many strange symptoms that my primary care physician thought was TIAs, I spent many hours in the ER. When I was referred to Dr Thummala, hhe finally diagnosed me with seizures, and the medication I was prescribed changed my life. He has no staff turnover so you know everyone in the office, they are all friendly and professional. He also has an excellent Nurse Practitioner who is also very knowledgeable and provided me with resources and support groups regarding my condition.

I was referred to Dr. Thummala for headaches, and my life has been transformed for the better with Botox. His waiting area is not overcrowded, and he has a wonderful nurse practitioner who does a great job at explaining the different medications and procedures.

Excellent neurologist. Took time to explain my test results. I was told I have panic attacks for years and no one bothered to look what might be the cause. Upon doing 3 day brain test he identified every time I get panic attack I am having seizure on EEG. He placed me on seizure medication and now I am now anxiety free for last 6 months. Until I saw Dr.Thummala no doctor bothered to test but everyone kept on giving me pills, more pills each time. I am glad I saw right doctor now.

Dr. Thummala seems to be a good doctor at first. He had good bedside manners and patiently talked to us. However he does not maintain a good office staff. They never answer calls and it seems the staff is always leaving. When we pushed back on Dr Thummala for the lack of staff, he took offense and his demeanor changed - we have copies of some nasty notes he wrote via his email system. I would not recommend going to this doctor.
Dr. Thummala is OK if you ever get to see him. The PA sees most of the patients and she does not have much of a personality. Absolutely would not recommend this office. The phone system is never answered by a real person, have to leave a message every time and will only get a call back less than half the time. Prescription refills are ridiculous to get. Very money hungry.
