My visit to Dr Puppala was awesome! There is no procrastinating in him. He gets right to the job of positive changes, a plan of action, and in quick succession I was on the road to positive changes in my lifebecause Vinaya is the one of the most efficient Dr's ever. When you live in chronic pain for 15 years, getting old, are short on answers, and would like to see treatment & results faster than you ever have before then book an appointment.
