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.

One Star

I relocated to this area from Ohio and located Dr Settipalli Pain Management Clinic on their internet site which clearly states their office accepts new patients. When I called to make an appointment I was told they only accept patients by referrals only. Your web site should clearly state you accept patients by referrals only. Very misleading and not helpful for a new patient in need of a pain spec not a primary care phys.
