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.

Vemuri is not a medical doctor. Ask him. He is a DO. He performed surgery on me more than 3 years ago and each day I regret having him perform an ACDF. Please do your work and research information about the doctor before making a major decision as surgery.

Great surgeon but a little slow on replying to calls and questions. One rod did not stay within the screws-which concerns me. Hopeful that my back will heal soon-9 weeks out now.

Dr. Vemuri was great! I was in pain for 8 yrs. He double fused 3 discs in 2014 and I have been pain free ever since. Would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Dr. Vemuri!
