Dr. Ven S Kottapalli has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Think twice about seeing this doctor

I have a history of stomach ulcers. When during one of my visits I complained about pain in my stomach area, he asked me: so, what do you do when your stomach hurts? I answered: I take Zantac. He asked: Does it help? I said: Yes. Thus doctor cheerfully said: we, then keep taking Zantac! What a shameful attitude! I immediately changed a GI, and my next doctor found pre-cancerous condition of my stomach and esophagus. This kind of behavior of Kottapalli is simply a crime.
