We need more physicians like Dr. Bethala who is an incredibly wonderful doctor. I’ve been so fortunate to have met him in 2011. He is so dedicated to his patients and will even return phone calls on a weekend and even Christmas Day. I applaud and respect this rare gentleman. Rae Ann Jandris

Don't really know this doctor, but he appears to be good based on staff comments at the facility where the procedure was performed. I did feel rushed at the initial consultation. The office staff leaves much to be desired. Office hours say 9:30 - 3:00 yet no one answered the phone & service would not take a message. Not thrilled with the office staff at all. Difficult to communicate with. Felt on edge and like I was annoying them with my questions. I would have liked to stay with this doct

The best doctor I’ve been to! There are no doctors like him anymore. He’s compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, thorough, kind, takes his time to actually listen to you and your problem. His kind, calm manner is also so soothing.
