Unbelievable! Dr. Prasad has been great--staff too. I was pretty sure I needed to get cortisone shots for a bad shoulder. Thought that would be ortho guy giving me a shot. Dr. Prasad did a procedure in day hospital where he could see exactly where the needle should go with x-ray. Pain is gone! Much thanks to Dr. Prasad and his staff!

Got injured after a fall and was in severe sciatica pain.Felt humble that so much can happen without our control!.Our family doctor referred to Dr.P.He explained for the first time what was the problem, pinched nerve.MRI test confirmed it and got epidural inj with very good relief.He was very compassionate throughout. He then referred me to therapy and told us how imp it is to exercise regularly and lift and bend correctly during day to day work. Now I'm back at work. Thanks a lot Dr.P.

Worst results. He was a no show for the 1st ESI injection. The 2nd ESI did nothing. He didn't see me on the follow up. His P.A. said we had to start over - 3 more ESIs. I told her & his staff that I was done with him - cancel everything immediately. His staff told me they would accept my insurance (Scott & White PPO). They did not. In fact, I was balance billed $11,500. His billing company, Physcian Partners of Amercia returned no calls in 5 months. Very unprofessional & deceptive & unresponsive.

I would give Dr. Prasad zero stars if I could. He doesn't listen, gets me mixed up with other patients, all about the $$$ and how soon he can implant a stimulator without trying any alternative methods. All he talks about. Very curt in his speaking, bullying tactics are no way for a Dr to be.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I had a very good experience with Dr.Prasad, while being treated for back issues. I was about to cancet my cruise, that I had planned for almost a year. I met Dr.P, about 2 months ago. He suggested me not to cancel the cruise and to try PT and 2 spine injections. I was skeptical, but wanted to give a try. We just got back from 5 days cruise yesterday morning. Thanks to Dr.Prasad, as he suggested the injections and therapy helped me a lot.I didn't miss out the time with family on the cruise. Ofcourse, I didn't do a whole lot on the ship, but being able to spend time with family was amazing.

He made me feel comfortable. He didn't judge me based on my medications and my diseases. He made wonderful suggestions that I could understand and didn't rush me out of the office. He listened to me!!!!!!! He gave me hope that he will be able to make my disease that's incurable and devastating (RA, FM....) to a disease that I'm going to be able to finally accept and be able to get to the point where I'm able to function at the status I was able to before I got sick a few years ago. This all in the first few visits is how he made me feel - hopeful! This is truly amazing as I've been to endless number of drs and found only one other to be so great. I hope it stays this way...........

I could not be happier after seeing Dr. Prasad for just 2 visits. He is genuinely invested in his patients and their well being and has an excellent bedside manner. He is very friendly, but stern, and while I was entering into a severe depression after 21 years of chronic back pain and Methadone just before seeing him for the first time, he has already helped me to deal with this while working to improve my quality of life through an MRI and effective targeted treatments. He has helped me to find ways to pursue my own peace, too, and has given me some real hope again. I cannot say enough good about what a true doctor this man is. He has found his God given reason for being put on this earth and he puts it to good use! Thank you, Dr. Prasad!
