I found this doctor to be thorough in his assessment and frank in his diagnosis. Although his appearance suggests another culture, his English is impeccable.

Fantastic service!

Dr. Mundanthanam and his staff were beyond professional, going out of their way to accommodate my parents' needs, as they had driven 8 hours for their appointment. The doctor was friendly, took his time to answer all of our questions, and explained in detail all of our options and procedures. He listened to our concerns and fit us into his busy schedule to perform the procedure the same day as our consultation. All of the staff were friendly and personable, making us feel at home. I would give him 100 stars if possible, and my parents will definitely be back to have the next procedure done on the other hand. The doctor and staff were fantastic!

Aboslute Professional

Dr. Mundanthanam saw me for car[al tunnel release. He diagnosed it quickly and scheduled a surgery right away. he did a double surgery because I did not want to go through the procedure and healing twice. He talked to me about the procedure and what to expect and answered every question I had. His demeanor is so very pleasant and there is no rushing to do anything. If you want a truly enjoyable experience(considering what has to be done) then this doctor is the one to contact.

Excellent Physician/Surgeon

Dr. Mundanthanam performed carpal tunnel release, cubital tunnel release and trigger finger release on on my husband and carpal tunnel release on myself. Both of us had been in pain for years and are now symptom free. A pain free recovery and back to normal activities in 2 weeks. A great surgeon and a very nice person.
