Was not helpful with my situation. Did not draw any labs. In no way tried to help me find out what was wrong. Could not even help me by telling me a different specialist to see.

Dr. Annapureddy is wonderful!! I drive two hours from my home to see him when I could see a provider much closer to home. I trust him completely, and I believe that he genuinely cares about my welfare.
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr A is a wonderful Dr whom is very smart, he told me that I have osteoarthritis, and that was it, But I still think he is tops, and I will continue to see him, and tell others about him. I feel if I had asked any questions he would have answered them.
Patient | February 26, 2018

no tests or procedures
Patient | February 19, 2018

I have seen this provider two times both times I sat in a chair and talked I was never examined. He seemed like wanted to get to his next patient and my problem wasn't serious enough for his time. Totally disappointed with this provider.
Patient | February 4, 2018

it was my first visit and was hoping for more answers, but it may be that I need to be more patient. issues I have been trying to get answers for, for almost a year.
Patient | January 30, 2018

Did not follow thru w.prior info given by same provider, no care about issues I was having felt like cat the being herded thru clinic. Issues not confirmed as indicated.
Patient | January 28, 2018

Very good doctor. Would not go to anyone else.
Patient | January 25, 2018

Dr anapuereddy made me feel very comfortable. he's a very knowledgeable doctor and nice bedside manners that matter a lot to me When selecting Dr for my care. he understands that my goal is to have all my Dr through Vanderbilt so they can all consult with each other for me to have the best future medical care team and outcome for a healthier version of me.

Patient | November 3, 2017

Very nice, explained everything & made sure I understood & he did not rush me! Excellent doctor.
Patient | October 2, 2017

My doctors and their staff and the clinic I go to are the best.

Dr. A. has also been excellent in responding to e-mails within the Vanderbilt pt. portal. He also called me with lab results (personally).
Patient | August 31, 2017

I don't feel like this provider actually listens to me or has an open mind to what I am relaying as far as my explanation of some symptoms I was having due to my condition. Provider comes across as only knowing what they have read and not what they have learned from experience. It's my opinion this provider needs much more experience to make a patient feel like they are getting the best care possible and are being heard and that their input is taken seriously.
Patient | August 28, 2017

he was a very nice man, but was not willing to help me at all, he was going off blood test I had done in July, he didn't seem sincere and told me indirectly that he couldn't be of any help to me, told me he couldn't diagnose me but thought I probably had fibrodmyalga, witch I told him, it was a total dissatisfaction.

This provider is by FAR!! The best I've ever seen! #1. Super dr.
Patient | June 28, 2017

I would have not seen this doctor if I didn't think he tries to help me & driving 140 miles as long as I have.
Patient | June 26, 2017

I am so happy we were directed to Dr. Annapureddy. he finally found the answer to my medical problem that has effected me for a year and I am now so much better. He is an excellent Doctor. I am Blessed to have found him.
Patient | June 26, 2017

Had to ask him to repeat after.
Patient | June 21, 2017

Dr. Annapureddy was extremely kind and very knowledgeable. He patiently answered all my questions, and never made me feel as though I was wasting his time. I was very pleased with his demeanor, and responsiveness.
Patient | June 19, 2017

This doctor spent maybe five minutes with me. That includes the time it took for him to ask about basic medication information that I couldn't remember (but that he had on the computer right in front of him), ask about a very specific detail of a recent procedure (again, I don't know it, but I am certain it was in my chart) and bend a few of my joints backwards (i.e., cause them more damage). He did not provide me with any information whatsoever and did not ask for any information that would help him judge whether my current treatment was adequate. When I left, I realized I wasn't even sure if he was going to refill the prescription he started me on at the previous visit a few months prior. I have seen many providers in the Vanderbilt system many times over the past several years for ongoing care of a complex condition. This was by far the most pointless appointment I've had here.
Patient | May 22, 2017

Really attentive, professional, and caring.
Patient | May 22, 2017

I have had bad experiences in the past with other rheumatologist in Huntsville AL - I think Dr. Annapureddy is awesome! He takes time with me and he knows, and explains, what I need to know! My hats off to him!!!
Patient | May 8, 2017

He did not even listen to all of my symptoms because he was rushing so much.
Patient | May 3, 2017

Dr. Annapureddy was fantastic in ever way. He was very caring and has helped me so much!
Patient | April 24, 2017

Not bad but language barrier made it hard to understand.
