At first, I really liked Dr, Raguthu, and was grateful for him finally finding out my exact medical issue. However, as time went on, it became very obvious that this doctor and the rest of his office are overwhelmed with theamount of patients in their roster, and they do not even try to make any changes. Waiting time to see the doc is often over 2 hours, the doctor has terrible bedside manner and is unprofessional. He will forget the reason you are coming to see him, and doesn't even bother to read your chart most the time. He and his staff push cortisol injections on you, even if you tell them its not working and they already know the injections wont work for your condition (such as mine, torn meniscus). Doctor will yell at you and discharge you from treatment if you dare to question his precious injections. He personally gave me a hard time for needing the most basic low-level pain meds while prescribing heavier narcotics to other patients without hesitation. I am in a lot of pain due to my knee injuries and most of the damage is on weight bearing parts of my knees. He will treat you like just a number and a pocketbook. Too bad, because I had such high hopes for this practice, and never thought it would end up like this. Steer clear if at all possible.

Scheduled appointments should be adhered to because some people unlike some of the patients have to still go to work afterwards and that is the reason one would schedule the earliest appointment.

this doctor was very rude to me and my husband and he wouldn't do a procedure because of my condition he is a very judgmental and we had an appoint and we had to wait too long for it but itwas an urgent reason. Other patients had appointments and ended up leaving because they weren't being seen yet even though they had waited longer than us and it still took forever even when we got in the patient room it was probably about a hour to an hour and a half which is too long especially when we had limited time to call our ride to come get us because we had been having issues with transportation.

For me, the Doc always works magic and & has been doing so for the last 5 years that I have been seeing him: for bad kneck, shoulder, and area around yor appendix for the 5. Lower back issues so bad,was actually worried that I'd have to stop woring, But Doc Raguthu did his magic and the back is 98%, Later I had hernia surgery and experienced severe pain in the area of the incision. He explained that the pain was from complication of hernia surgery and the mesh entangling with nerve tissue - he did not perform the surgery - he made the results better. Neck spasm, in the middle of a jury trial in Federal court, unable to turn my head, I was in the middle of trial so I had to continue. Surya Raguthu treated the injury and the patient, My recommendation is I call it magic, no real hocus pocus because I've largely watched it all. from what I can't see. There are alot of medical providers out there who will talk over you and please themselves in the process. Raguthu is located about 5 miles from my home, Location great. The The business operates as a cooperative medical offices with an onsight physical threapy location in side. Just nothing but good tings to say about the entire procedure talk about and that doesn' happen very often in the on one occasion I had a jury out in a civil trial Surya was busy and I had trouble driving. Manjula help and worked the solution so that I was able to take the verdict and thank the jurrors. It's this type of triage that helps busy folks doing busy things.

Staff is a bunch of young kids who are very unprofessional and talk about personal stuff loudly while you are trying to get treated. The Dr is very rude and doesn't spend but 5min with you. He walked in the roomand made some comment then demanded my mom to leave the room and was rude about that then looked at the computer and called the front desk person in room and yelled at him about something he had entered..Took everything I had not to just get up and leave..But when your in pain you want help. Then I had a nerve test done that I demanded to be done and sat there for 30min waiting on someone to come do it..well no one told the guy that performs the test I was waiting so then they were yelling at each other back and forth about why didn't you tell me man and blah blah very unprofessional. During the nerve test the guy was complaining that he wants to go home and dammit they scheduled me another customer..Then I go to checkout and they don't even know what scripts I'm getting prescribed or when they dr wants to see me back which I would never go back! No way!! This is not the place to get help with your pain unless you want to deal with a bunch of kids that don't know what they are doing and a Dr who is extremely rude and could care less about you and does nothing for your pain..Total waste of time!

Having a chronic illness, I see a lot of doctors. I have never seen a doctor with such little respect for his patient's time and such little empathy for their condition. After multiple incidents of 2.5 hour waits, the doctor wasunapologetic, then didn't even want to treat me. My first visit, he directly accused me of drug seeking. I am a chemo patient with enough to deal with, without the very people who are supposed to be there to help me, accusing me of these things. I left that appointment sobbing. This doctor constantly over schedules, clearly trying to maximize revenue. When confronted about that directly he said "it's never going to change." I have been treated at major clinics like Mayo and Baylor who apologize if they run five minutes behind, and believe you when you ask them for help. I will also be contacting provider relations at my health insurance carrier.

I was very delight that he took me on such short notice, however, he talks completely over your head "unfamiliar with most terms used" he's very dismissive when trying to get him to understand "one's self & their complaint"partially due toto his "GOD Complex" but the real GOD put him in his place, as he was being so dismissive and half ignoring me he trip over his own feet and fell flat on his face "everyone laughed", I ended up helping him off the floor, now, having said that I believe Dr. Surya Raguthu, has the state of the art practice, as well, having new and innovative procedures that I believe would be very beneficial to myself and his patients I have a follow up appointment in a couple of weeks....which I'm looking forward too, after all I got the biggest laugh in months and that in and of it's self is good MEDICINE.....please publish without using my name as someone else also helped get him off floor...I wouldn't want it held against me on on my follow up visit, I have the biggest smile as I write this and that's medicine for the soul, money couldn't buy it....THANK YOU ALL AT ZocDoc.......still smiling

Dr Raguthu was compassionate and listened to my concerns. He works with me and has helped me to control the my spcific pain issues. He has given me back the ability to spend time with family and friends who I've spentyears avoiding and isolateing myself from due to the physical and in turn emotional pain. I'm very happy to have found Dr Raguthu, I drive 40 miles each way to see him and it's worth it, I've spent longer in other Dr's. offices waiting rooms. I highly recommend him...
