I was referred to a plastic surgeon that wanted to operate within a couple of days. I had two MRIs that said I had a torn tendon and needed surgery. Dr. Bodavula said that I did not need surgery and my tendon was not torn. He said all I needed was therapy and he was right. I’m so glad that I went to him and avoided a surgery .

I was very happy with Dr. Bodavula and his staff. As a new patient, Dr. Bodavula was kind, caring, and committed to helping find the issue to my mild carpal tunnel systems. He was knowledgeable and wanted to heal the whole patient and not just make the symptoms go away.

I was a new patient with this physician and he evaluated my wrist and said I had carpel tunnel and surgery was required. He stated he wanted to get a nerve conduction test just to make sure nothing else was going on and to see the severity of the carpel tunnel. Had surgery, went home same day and had no pain during recovery period.

Terrible. Lisa is rude and incompetent. Made me feel guilty for scheduling an appointment and gave me the wrong address purposely. Another gentleman had paperwork stating 130pm and Lisa argued with him and said it was supposed to be 12pm. Wow.

The office is terrible. I prepaid for services, and when the claim processed, my HRA paid the claim, so they were paid twice. I have made over a dozen calls since July 2017, it is now March 2018 and I still have not received my refund. I have been promise d several times my refund was sent out, but it never has. The doctor was fine, but the office will flat out lie to your face. Terrible!!!

I saw Dr. Bodavula today for the first time. He diagnosed my wrist and preformed a procedure in his office. He was easy to talk with, took his time explaining what I had and how he would rid the pain in my wrist, and told me that I would be in pain for at least 3 days and how to manage the pain. I did not expect that my issue would be addressed so quickly and I am very pleased that it was done today. Also, his office staff was friendly and polite.

Saw this doctor after I fractured my hand which required immediate surgical repair. Initially things went well. However the cast broke after 2 days following surgery and despite daily calling for 2 weeks I did not hear from the office until the follow up. When I got to my appointment that day I was scolded by the doctor for not wearing a cast. He performs the pin removal in office without properly knowing my hand which was very painful and botched it, requiring another surgery.
