When no Drs in my home state of Ohio took me serious and gave very bad, harmful advice to me, Dr Kakarla did the opposite and has completely changed my life...he's giving me my life back and doesn't even realize just how much he's done for me...I know this is his job and it's what he does, but for me, my misery was my life and my reality. Dr Kakarla has me on my way to going back to work and feeling so much better...I'd give him and his staff and all the nurses at St Joseph's Hospital the overall best in medical care in the world if I could...and I promise I don't hand those out lightly these days in any medical field, but they are all much deserving of it!!
Dr Kakarla is incredibly clinical, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and understand, and willing to take the personal time needed to make you feel at ease and answer all your questions. Dr Kakarla will not conduct surgery unless absolutely necessary and he will engage in less obtrusive medical strategies prior to suggesting surgery. He is quite simply amazing and talented!
Dr Kakarla is very knowledgeable about the spine. I feel that I am in great hands. He recommends things for me to do & not to do. His office staff is very friendly.
