I have been struggling in determining the proper dosage of medication for my thyroid for 4 years. This is my 3rd physician change. Dr. Rupakula asked questions never before addressed by my previous physicians and discovered a very simple change in my diet that allowed my current dosage to work correctly! I am truly thankful for his knowledge and willingness to discover the reason rather then just change my dosage and hope for the best!

I have been fighting health issues for several years, many doctors just passing me on to the next. I am very happy where I am at this location. I feel I finally have a group of doctors that are actually addressing my issues, and not just masking the ailments with prescription medications!!! Dr. Rupakula took the time to genuinely listen to my fast-forward life. It is a challenge to try and explain where I was in life, where I am now, and where I need to be, to a new Dr., in one office visit. I need my life back and I feel confident that Dr. Rupakula is for ME. I am seeing results and I am one step closer to the better, healthier me. Blessings to the amazing, friendly Staff.
