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!!
