What a blessing.

I no longer see Dr. Ponnuru but not for any other reason than we moved away from Kansas and back home to Texas. Dr. Ponnuru exemplifies an extraordinary primary physician. He is a trusted companion to have as your healthcare leader. Even after leaving his practice more than 7 years ago we still look for someone similar to his style. He is knowledgeable, thorough, never in a rush, tidy, and compassionate. It truly was our loss.

The best ever!!

I may have to wait just a little, but it is so worth it. He makes me feel like I matter, and he looks at alternative sides rather than all the pills that other doctors gave me. I now have my whole family going to him and everyone loves him!! Thank you dr. ponnuru for caring so much for your patients! And tell Stormi how very much she is appreciated, also. There is not a better nurse!!

Trusted, Tried and True

I moved to the area about 7 years ago and had to find a new primary care physician. In our old home, my wife was a nurse, so we knew every doctor well before ever visiting. Here, she's retired so a new doctor is a daunting thing for us, especially since my wife and I are getting older and have several health issues. We could not have selected any better. He has since become not just the best doctor either of us has known, he's become a trusted friend. He practices medicine based on solid science and keeps very current. We both trust him with our lives and the trust is well placed.

Five Stars

Dr. Ponnuru has been my doctor for 4-5 years. He is compassionate and I enjoy talking to him and hearing his stories. I have learned a lot from him as a doctor. He is one of these doctors that gives you a natural remedy to try before going on antibiotics and I appreciate that. He is a doctor that doesn't believe in antibiotic overuse like most doctors that I have dealt with and that means a lot to me. He is very informative and thorough and I like that.

Outstanding Physician

I have been a patient of Dr. Ponnuru for many years. In my experience with him, he ranks as one of the best (if not THE best) physician I have ever had the priviledge of knowing. He takes the necessary time to answer my questions, and he has an outstanding and excellent nurse in "Stormy." I highly recommend.
