I had a good consultation with Dr. Boppana. We discussed side effects of my migraine meds and it was decided to change my medication in the next month.

I was given the results of an MRI which showed nothing had changed. I was told that her original diagnosis was incorrect and that I must have Rheumatoid Arthritis or Lupus. I know what these are as well as symptoms and I don't have any of the symptoms of these autoimmune diseases. I told her I have Graves Disease but she blew it off. She didn't ask any questions about symptoms but jumped to wanting to do a spinal tap over doing other tests, less invasive. Scared me to death!

Dr. Boppana is an excellent neurologist. The treatments she has recommended over the years have improved the quality of life for me dramatically. She continues to monitor and work with me in the treatment of migraine headaches. There are few medical professionals that I fully trust and Dr. Boppana is one of them. She is #1 on my list.
