Best Pain Management Doctor Memorial Had!

Dr. Settipalli was the best pain management Memorial had. Unfortunately, he has had enough of Memorials Administrations abusive attitudes toward doctors and patients. He recently left, and I don’t blame him. Don’t know what these other patients are complaining about, with the exception of being a bit hard to understand sometimes, he would go out of his way to help you. However, he would not help you if you are a drug abuser, or a drug seeker.

Hard to understand his English

Dr. Settipalli has not spent over 3 minutes with me on any visit but one; when I got trigger point injections once. His staff is professional, kind and helpful but he is in and out of your room so fast I don't know how he can really care about you as his patient. I have been on pain management through pain specialists for 23 years. I found him through my primary care doctor who referred me when I moved to MS. Because I had never had surgery on my neck, scoliosis and lower back, he lowered the dosage of pain meds from what I had been taking for almost 8 years without an increase due to tolerance. I have had 2 surgeries on my knees but he didn't want to hear this. I've adjusted to the dosage decrease because I've had to but I've never had a doctor, especially a specialist, spend so little time with me. I will say that his injection procedures have truly helped me for which I am most grateful. I just wish I didn't have to ask, "I beg your pardon. I didn't understand what you just said" every time he speaks to me.

Very dissatisfied

There is nothing I like about this doctor. He is rude, curt, and lacks any interest whatsoever in his patients. I was referred to Dr. Ram by my Primary Care Physician and was told he was compassionate and caring ... WRONG!!! At my last appointment, he asked me twice (within a five minute period ... because that is all the time he spends with you) what my name was. How pathetic is that??!! If you have a choice, DON'T choose this man.

Don't see him. Go anywhere else.

Went to other pain management doctors (several) and got treated better in every way. I have severe pain and this doctor doesn't care. No way to treat a woman or patient. He would not even listen to me. Thinks he knows everything because he is a doctor. Well, the best doctors listen to their patients for more than just a couple minutes.
