Dr. Vemuri has helped me with 2 surgeries now, as well as several follow-up visits. He's always friendly, makes eye contact, so I feel like he's truly listening, takes the time to hear what I have to say, and actually responds to my questions. The office has been remodeled recently, and it has a feeling of being open, friendly, bright. They can get rather busy at times, so there are times when you can feel a bit rushed, but that can be said for most doctors' visits. I can say that I trust Dr Vemuri, and would go back to him again if the need were to arise.

Dr Vemuri did an ACDF on me in 2012 which gave me my career back. He was the only dr that listened to me after having severe radiculopathy in both hands but the scans didn’t look “bad” enough to another big wig dr in town. He just didn’t look close enough. Dr V looked at the whole picture and not just one symptom. This is what a D.O. does. I have a tiny scar and full mobility back. I am doing more now than I was before, 7 years later. I refer anyone to him that is in need of spinal care.

Dr. Vemuri is the best. He uses a minimally invasive approach which greatly reduced my recovery time. He and his staff are very professional and courteous. He takes time to listen and involves the patient in the plan of care. Everything is thoroughly explained and you are given all the info and options needed to make an informed decision about your treatment. I hope I never have to but I would go back to him without hesitation.

To the person who said Dr. Vemuri is not a medical doctor you are incorrect. A D.O. is as much a medical doctor as an M.D. Their training is a little different but both are qualified physicians. I was skeptical at first but I looked up the information and am now certain I can count on Dr. Vemuri to do right by me. I was very impressed with my first visit with him. Do your research before you say incorrect things.

Office followed up quickly, checked my insurance and confirmed the appt. When I arrived I filled out the paperwork and then was told the office did not take my insurance. I basically wasted 2 hours for nothing.
