What Patients Are Saying

"The relief was almost immediate. I got rid of my medication overnight. It’s remarkable. My husband said, ‘I can hug you without worrying about hurting you!’ According to Dr. Budampati, Patti’s prognosis is excellent. “Those bones are now probably the strongest bones in her body,” she said.Patti (view full story)

"Dr. Budampati and staff understand my chronic pain situation. They make my visit as pleasant as can be, considering I am receiving injections in my lower back and on occasion both of my shoulders. Dr. Budampati carefully monitors the multiple cortisone injections I receive, so that they do not have an adverse effect in the long run. Dr. B and staff are excellent and I would recommend them to anyone.”– Angel

“I am grateful for Dr. B’s care and treatment which has allowed me to regain some of my mobility and life quality. Not only is she treating my condition as it presents currently, but she has reassured me that there are possible treatments for the future should they become necessary. I feel that I am in good hands with her. Thank you.” – Jackie

    Everyone friendly and caring professionals. Dr B took care to describe options and make her recommendation for injections. I was glad they were able to go ahead right then and do it, almost painlessly. Felt better within hours!
