“My visits are always extremely exceptional! The staff and medical team are always in great spirits. My doctor is very well educated and well groomed. I found the best place for my care and wellbeing, outstanding place that I have recommended to family and friends.”

“Caring, sympathetic, knowledgeable & experienced, Dr. Puppala puts one at ease. From the moment that you meet him he is able to establish an immediate trust that both your physical & emotional needs will be met. I feel VERY fortunate to have him as my doctor. His staff & his assistant (Blanca) are angels in the care as well as the follow-up that they give.”

“Dr. Puppala has replaced both of my hips during the last four years. The latest being 3 weeks ago, it was done anteriorly. Both experiences with Dr. Puppala have been excellent. As I said, I am three weeks post op of the latest replacement and find myself wondering how I can possibly be doing so well. The pain is gone and I’m doing everyday tasks with no problem. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Puppala.”
