in Madison, IN |
Once you finally get back in the back to see him it was okay. He scheduled me for a CT scan and gave me naproxen, nasocort and told me to use a saline rinse 2 times a day. Said was tonsils and sinuses were inflamed but no antibiotic for it. Both times we got there atleast 20 minutes before appt time and still waited over 30 mins past appt time before getting called back. No explanation at check-in that he was running behind.

I was skeptical at first, but DR. Kakarlapudi knew exactly what he was doing. I wish i would have had my nasal surgery a long time ago.I breathe so much better now.

He spent very little time and really did not do an exam at all. He barely looked at the ulcer I had had for almost 10 months at that time and then told me he could cut it out, adding, "I'm not trying to discourage you, but you will be in a lot of pain afterwards." He never mentioned the need for a biopsy or even the possibility of cancer. Well, here I am 2 months later finding out it is cancer and facing partial glossectomy with neck dissection in just a few days.
