“Exceptional health professional with superb staff. Dr. Phillips clearly outlined options for my back pain with an emphasis on what is best for me. Walked out of my appointment with complete confidence that I got the best advice and recommended treatment. Isis (Dr Phillips’ medical assistant) was nothing short of superb.” – Carlos Caceres
“So this is actually where I went for a third opinion. I’ve seen another neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon about a 2 level disc replacement surgery. Other locations made me feel very rushed to get a surgery and I left with more questions than answers. Dr. Phillips took a good long time to review my body’s symptoms as well as review/explain my symptoms’ causes. I felt really at ease at this quant office setting. Mobi-C was originally my goal of seeking a third opinion, but I left hopeful that I might be able to manage these issues without surgery.” – Kelvin Ewald

“I moved to the SA area leaving a fantastic neurology doctor and with natural apprehension. I found NISA through online reviews of patients and their mission to make you feel like you’re not actually going to doc but more like a spa. Now I’m all for that. It’s been about a year and a half and the staff is wonderful, efficient, have not made any mistakes, and Dr Gazda and her team have been on point with my care. I have so much gratitude for this practice. I’d say if a new patient, of course check out your options objectively but take a tour with these folks. I especially appreciate all services you generally would generally need to take care of (labs, bloodwork, infusion, physical therapy) are also avail within the building of you prefer. A perk is the outdoor balcony for some fresh air. Thanks NISA, I cannot express how much thanks and love I have for you all after such a tough year.” – D Mn

“We found Dr. Reddy by searching the tons of neurologists in San Antonio and we chose him because we liked his experience and online reputation. We wanted to see him ASAP because we were concerned about findings on an MRI from our regular dr. from the previous week. They got us in THAT DAY because there happened to be a cancellation and his receptionist, Monique, knew how badly we wanted to be seen. (WOW!!!) Dr. Reddy was very timely and his exam rooms were spotless. He was extremely thorough and even brought us into his office to look over the MRI dvd and he explained everything in such depth that we felt very confident in his diagnosis. We have seen many doctors recently because of some current issues and we were absolutely thrilled with our visit with Dr. Reddy and we thought his staff was extraordinarily nice and accommodating.” – Sara J
