This is the third time I have been referred to Mr Vermulapalli and I have had an excellent experience every time. He is so understanding, caring, professional and a true gentleman. He is a very good listener and has always given me such great advise. In all my years of seeing doctors he is the Dr I would recommend to all my family and friends. Thank you Mr Vermulapalli for being so passionate and caring to your patients.
Mr.Vemulapalli listened carefully to the description of my foot problems. He felt the bones carefully and after Xrays tested to check where the pain came from. He discussed his plans and gave opportunity to ask questions and was fully supported by the team working with him. My operation gave me no pain and he personally supervised removal of bandages and successive plasters. My foot gave some pain once I began walking but now gives me the freedom to walk naturally at speed. Mr. V. is to be highly recommended. Thank you.
The consultant was confident and attentive about my treatment. Due to his operating theatre skills and experience, Krishna was able to successfully restitch my Achilles’ tendon despite a complication and I was able to make a swift and speedy recovery. I have no hesitation in recommending Krishna Vemulapalli.
