He understood my concerns and addressed them. He explained all the tests that BSW ran, including some I didn't expect. He gave me his best guess as to what may be going on and suggested possible further tests to be done down the road. He didn't make me feel foolish concerning my concerns.

I sincerely and deeply appreciate the time Dr. Surapaneni spent with my wife and I. He did an excellent job of reducing my concerns of my having any long term problems. He is an excellent physician and thankful for his time. In the old days, one would say "Dr. Surapaneni has a very good bed side manner." Thank you Dr. Surapaneni.
