Excellent orthopedic surgeon

Dr. Kothakota has been my family's orthopedic doctor for over 10 years. I highly recommend him to anyone requiring a skilled and experienced orthopedist. Sometimes the office wait is a little long, however that is the case with most popular physicians. I trust my bones to no one but Dr. Kothakota!

Worked with doctors for 9 years, this is the worst doctor I have ever encountered

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR, he is money hungry and just wants to get paid. He accepts Medicaid and medicare and has his patients return unnecessarily so that he can get paid. He has no empathy for his patients and the fact they may have to take off from work numerous times, (his response to that is it's not his problem). He is ripping Medicaid and medicare off

AN OUTSTANDING DOCTOR

DR. KOTHAKOTA IS ONE OF THE BEST DOCTORS I HAVE EVERY HAD. I WOULD GIVE HIM A 5 STAR RATING. HE PERFORMED 3 NECK FUSIONS AND A BONE DRAFT FROM MY HIP. HE MAKES YOU FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE. HIS BEDSIDE MANNERISM IS NEXT TO NONE. THANKS TO HIM I AM NOT PARALIZED.
