Excellent, highly intelligent, takes the time to educate CT results, excellent bedside manner. Honest, direct. I've suffered immensely for eight years with a large posterior nasal perforated and deviated septum, and while at my wits end, his clinical expertise and genuine concern for patient care has restored hope.This doctor is a rare gem.
Dr. Ponnappan treats his patients with the utmost respect and professionalism. I was scared and nervous prior to my first visit after losing my hearing. How ever, he was patient and calming as he explained what my options were. Eventually, I had to have surgery and Dr. Ponnappan did an excellent job , both before and afterwards. I highly recommend his services!!
