The entire staff is very helpful, kind, and extremely efficient. If it wasn't for Dr. Puppala I strongly feel the bursitis in my shoulder would still be in major pain. If you have shoulder pain, rotator cuff issues, or bursitis don't hesitate, RUN to see this man! I came to Comprehensive spine and pain because I had already visited two other physical therapist who were not getting me better. I had pain for 9 months until visiting this practice. Dr P was patient with my healing process and was always transparent when telling me what stages I was in my recovery. Now I am fully recovered back to pumping iron and putting on a backpack without pain. Thank you to everyone in that office for making my experience great from start to finish.

I highly recommend Dr. Puppala. His Chiropractic solutions to my back and sciatic pain have allowed me to move with significantly less discomfort. I woke up this morning feeling much better after a session the prior evening. I will continue to see Dr. Puppala to continue my healing process.

I love the staff and the doctor is incredible. No matter what they treat you like family. I was very fortunate to get in today. He is very aware of the pain I have been in for years but on top of that - it's the staff that pulls it all together. They are amazing people. When they start to get to know you, they treat you like you're someone special. That is what you dream of when you find doctors. You never want to feel like a number to them. Thank you comprehensive spine & pain. & thank you to Dr Alyse Smith at Gwinnett Spine Specialist- I wouldn't have found this doctor without her. She's the best chiropractor in atlanta & OTP!!! Please do yourself a favor - don't live in pain. Reach out to Alyse and Comprehensive Spine - they have multiple locations! Very easy commute!

Dr. Puppala is in my opinion, hands down, the best spine surgeon. His expertise, thoroughness, patience and his willingness to go the extra mile for his patients, brings me to this conclusion. His "bed side manner," is impeccable, his end time goal is to make sure you feel your best. Dr. Puppala looks for every solution to ease your pain. He has an amazing ability to make you smile even though you come to his office visit, suffering with back issues. I have recommended Dr. Puppala to anyone who tells me they have back pains. He is just that good.

I have been a patient of Dr. Puppala for three years and have complete confidence in his judgement. I am confident that if you have chronic pain producing diagnoses he will explain things in layman’s terms and help you find a solution that works.

I reached out to Dr. Puppala after suffering from a stiff back along with weak legs. I had problems walking more than 150 feet without having to sit to relax. Walking up stairs was impossible without having to pull myself up by the handrails. My back would stiffen when standing too long, climbing stairs or walking distances. The staff was very pleasant and patient and Dr Puppala was very attentive to my explanation of symptoms. They spoke with great confidence and had given me extreme confidence in their abilities. I followed all directions given to me and had surgery on my L5 S1 area. I wasn't nervous going into surgery as the facility is very welcoming and the staff very professional. I'm very happy with the results and after 2 weeks of having the surgery my legs are regaining strength and I'm able to walk longer distances with confidence. My back is still in the healing process but it's not as stiff as it was before surgery. I believe everything went perfectly as planned.

I have been dealing with numerous doctors and medical offices for years and I am unbelievably impressed with Dr. Puppala and his team. He is so thorough and remembers my medical history, making adjustments to treatments that may otherwise affect my other ailments. His office is responsive and follows up after each appointment to ensure I am doing alright. They even dealt with my insurance company who initially denied my treatment and got it approved within a day. I cannot give enough praise about him. Thank you so so much for being such a pleasure to work with <3

I can't recommend these guys enough. From check in through procedure, everyone is incredibly nice and professional. Wait times are very minimal. They do a great job of listening and explaining. Dr Puppala Pleasant may be the nicest doc I've ever visited. He is very down to earth and seems to really care about the patient. 5 stars all the way.
