Dr. Reddy is an excellent Dr. He spends time with you slow and methodical. Answers all questions and listens to you and takes action based on your team work and dedication to your problem. It is like a partnership. I have the most amount of time without a migraine since partnering with Dr. Reddy. I am thankful and blessed to have him AND his team as my partners in the quest for no migraine.

He spent the time to listen to my concerns and made this a team effort in trying to get my symptoms manageable in the future. Gave guidance for overall health and not just treated the chief complaint but tried to figure out the underlying symptoms to ensure the root cause was taken care of.

Dr Ready is my favorite doc ever. He takes his time and listens intently. He remembers. He treats me like I'm more than just another co-pay. I never have to race through an appointment or talk to his back while he races out the door to his next patient. He is the best.

The nurse was great, took her time with me and listened to me. Dr. Reddy was great, took his time and listened to me, remained calm while I was having anxiety and included me in treatment plan. There was a resident/Dr. observing Dr. Reddy and was moving her leg impatiently/nervously, which was not helpful since she was behind Dr. Reddy and I could see her as I was having anxiety and talking to him, but I didn't say anything about it at the time.
