I have not only been Dr Bodavula's patient, but I have worked with him in surgery as well. He is an excellent hand specialist and a very kind and caring person. He is always pleasant and takes the time to explain things to you and answer any questions you may have. He diagnosed my two issues in less than 5 minutes time. He resolved one issue on site in the office, and explained to me the reason we need to wait to resolve the other. Excellent experience. He is very busy, but worth the wait

The Doctor was highly recommended, but we could never get past the front desk. Showed up for appt, they never even acknowledged we were even there! Sliding glass door lets you know up front two things... "Don't tap on glass" and another sign that basically says that he is very busy and if you can't wait they will be happy to reschedule you...not a good sign. Then after all of that they said we did not even have an appt the day! Walked out, will not go back!

Had two appointments. One I waited 35 minutes for one I waited over an hour and fifteen minutes. Watching people who walked in behind me be seen before me. When I brought up my wait they seemed as unconcerned about it as they did with the pain that still exist after the removal of the cast. Now I have to find another doctor to finish what this guy started. He may be a decent doctor but he has no respect for his patients time.

I HAVE KNOWN THIS DR. FOR YEARS. HE TREATED MY MOTHER, SON AND MYSELF. I HAD CORPRAL TUNNEL SURGERY WITH HIM. GREAT RESULTS. ON SEPT 5 2016 I FELL OFF THE RUNNING BOARD OF MY TRUCK. BROKE MY LEFT WRIST RIGHT AT THE JOINT. HE PUT IN A STEAL PLATE AND SCREWS. 12 WKS LATER IT WAS HEALED. I HAD THE HAVE THE PLATE AND SCREWS REMOVED BECAUSE THE JOINT WAS RUBBING AGAINST THE PLATE. I AM FINE NOW. NO PROBLEMS WITH THAT WRIST. IT'S LIKE IT'S NEVER BEEN BROKE. GET HIM. YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH HIS WORK.

Dr. Bodavula was recommended to me by someone at my work. He did good work on carpel tunnel. I had dupitrins. He explained the history of the disease and the treatment very well. Excellent bed-side manner. The treatment went very well - exactly as he described. I later had a finger trigger issue and he resolved that without surgery. Highly recommended.

The good Dr. always has great bedside Manner no matter what you are like and how the injuries. Happened. I myself came to him with horrible infections he smiled and saidlet's look at that also I don't have insurance so instead of booking a very expensive or he made the incision in my room so he will be the only Dr. To work on arms and hands

I had a partial amputation of a finger from a saw. Dr.Bodavula performed the surgery and follow up visits afterward. I think he did an excellent job with the surgery and explained the procedure very well. He will answer any questions that you have.

Dr. Bodavula removed a cancerous growth on my hand. He did a great job. He took time to explain every procedure and encouraged me to ask any questions or concerns. He never rushes the office visits like some doctors do. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

As a practicing icu nurse, when I almost cut my finger off I called 911 and went to my hospital. The ER contacted Dr, Bodavula for surgery that day. I did not know we had a hand specialist and was happy we did. Dr. Bodavula was amazing, calmed my freaking out nerves. Told me and my nervous husband was he was going to do and was VERY honest at was recovery was going to be like. His smile and the time he took with my questions eased this nurses heart. He is just amazing!!
