Dr. Polepalle was very professional and kind. She followed through on my treatment. I now have very little pain in my back. Before the pain was excruciating. I could barely walk. Without Dr. Polepalle's help I would not be able to live a normal life. I highly recommend her.

She is inconsiderate in making patients wait. Written prescriptions incorrectly and have had to go without medication for days.
