He was extremely thorough during the exam and was ready to answer any questions we had. It\'s nice to leave a physicians office feeling completely confident in his care. We are so blessed to have Dr. Krishnan treat our daughter. Thank you!

there\'s a fine line btw doing your homework prior to meeting the pacient and diagnosing someone before you meet them. he does his homework but I feel didn\'t spend enough time asking me questions. he provided two potential diagnoses neither of which was really correct.

His explanations were great. And I could tell he has done this before. He sounded like a recorded. My negativity comes from his lack of pausing when talking. Wish he wouldn\'t have sped through so fast. Felt like he had to run to another appointment and left me with questions. Felt rushed. On a good note - His staff was great. That was nice.

The smooth functioning and patient care exhibited by the office staff was extraordinary. Dr Krishnan is a remarkably affable and skilled surgeon. He is a bit overly efficient for my tastes, but then I\'m inclined to move more slowly and chat a bit in the exchange of questions and answers. I enjoyed the appointment, but I walked out with unanswered questions. It\'s not his fault, just his manner.

He did my right shoulder in 2016 with great care and results. He is absolutely the best! I am blessed to have him as a surgeon and Baylor is blessed to have on staff.
