“I have been seeing Dr. Padda for almost 3 months now for elbow pain. I was referred to him by my primary care physician and he is a miracle worker. I have been dealing with this for years and wish I would have gone to him sooner.”
“I will go so far as to say that my FIRST visit with Dr. Padda was more helpful and productive than months of treatment with a local neurologist. Dr. Padda is extremely knowledgeable, and immediately ordered tests that any neurologist worth their salt should have done months ago. Dr. Padda acknowledged that yes, severe pain sometimes requires pain killers and did prescribe some, but was more concerned with finding the root problem of the cause of my migraines in hopes of stopping them.”
“LOVE Dr. Padda . A super upstanding guy. Really knows his stuff. I would recommend anyone I know to go to him for pain management. My back has hurt from a work injury and he has gotten it under control. He’s an abrupt guy but he doesn’t beat around the bush which is what I like. Straight up and honest.”
