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.
Patient | September 22, 2017

first time with this provider
Patient | September 19, 2017

ONLY SEEN TWICE BUT SEEM TO BE CARING , I JUST DON'T KNOW THAT MUCH ABOUT MY OWN CONIDITION RIGHT NOW TO UNDERSTAND REALLY WHATS GOING ON.
Patient | September 19, 2017

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.

good
Patient | July 31, 2017

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.
Patient | April 12, 2017

All good
Patient | January 30, 2017

Excellent care and all medications prescribed have been very effective.
Patient | January 24, 2017

I have never seen a dr. that seemed more bored or uninterested. He gave me no helpful info or thoughts that he could help me at all.
Patient | January 18, 2017

Like him very much but sometimes hard to understand (accent).
Patient | November 2, 2016

My favorite doctor by far! I look forward to coming back to see him. He definitely isn't a "small town doctor".
Patient | October 30, 2016

Dr. spent time understanding my concerns & worked hard to help me get to what/where I wanted to be.
Patient | October 10, 2016

Dr. Annapureddy was very professional. He referred me to another doctor. He explained why I needed to see the doctor he referred me to. Dr. Annapureddy told me what he thought I had wrong with me. He was right. This office got me in to see the referred doctor. I got a diagnosis and I am on a treatment plan, this is after seeing 9 different doctors, and _____ half year later.
