I feel Dr. Gunapooti is probably the best pain management Dr. in the St. Louis area. First, when you walk into the office, the waiting area is always clean and well kept up with. The staff is like no other. They genuinely care about the patients, take all efforts to make sure everything is well sanitized and clean. Dr. Gunapooti, well, he is one in a million. He comes into the treatment room, whether it’s to get shots or just for a check-up, and he is all about the patient. If it’s for a shot, he is VERY sanitary, as cell as his assistants. He will make you feel as comfortable as he can within his power. If it’s just a follow up, he’s not one of these in and out Dr.’s. He spends the time with you needed and answers any questions that you have. I drive an hour and fifteen minutes to go see him one way. Let me tell you, he’s worth it!!!
