    I believed in him right from the start. It was not just his bedside manner, but when he spoke he made me feel at ease, and I knew that he was sincere and professional. He diagnosed my rare condition and with arthroscopic surgery, I was freed from any more distress and discomfort.

    Dr. Kokkalera treated my grandmother for a paraesophageal hernia and a sliding hiatal hernia. Her recovery time was faster than expected, minimal pain and is feeling better than ever to this day. Surgery was August 2014 and she still has no issues today (June 2016). Dr. Kokkalera has some of the best bedside manner that she or myself has ever seen. We are so grateful that he saved her life as her hernias were becoming life threatening. THANK YOU DR. KOKKALERA!!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
