Dr. Challa repaired a hernia for me in 2011. I recentedly saw him again as I had been experiencing pain in the same area for about five months after feeling a sharp pain and feeling of something popping in my pelvis. Dr. Challa sent me for a CT scan and advised he would have the results in a day or two and would contact me to discuss them. It has been over two weeks and three calls to his office and I still have not heard from him.

Failed Inguinal hernia surgery with mesh patch. Informed him in the weeks after the surgery that things really didn't feel ant different. He tried to convince me things were fine and thie pain I was experiencing was normal. Stated the next thing he would have to do is an Mri to figure out what was going on. I did not trust him to do that. Just dealt with periodic pain for a few years. Going to another dr for analysis.
