All the old men were open about their TMI stories of the doctor visits while I tried to just concentrate on drinking the barber shop icee cold glass bottle of coke that cost 10 cents. I still had that fear at 50 until they woke me up after the procedure. Dr. Surapaneni and all the nurses and admin and anesthesiologists that I came in contact with kept me too busy with easy talk and then it was over. Thank God that he also had good news that all is ok. No need to fear anymore until I get any problems within 10 years and I will dread that super sweet flush drink prep.Better than the ocean salt water gallon alternative."

Other doctors didn’t want to dig and some even tried to tell me my unexplained pain was depression. Dr. Surapaneni was diligent with my case and really tried to figure out what was going on. A couple of surgeries and a PEG tube later, they found my old Nissen Fundoplication was too tight and I had a hernia that didn’t show up on any imaging. He’s been a great doctor I can depend on, and with his help I’m slowly getting my life back!"
"He's super busy but is worth the wait. I would definitely recommend Dr Surapaneni."

I am very grateful as I had gone to a different Dr week before and he was young and would not even listen to what I had to say or even look at my hospital reports plus he wouldn't even have looked at me until mid September!
