Dr. Rumalla and his staff were amazing! From my first consultation, I felt welcomed and confident in our decisions. Dr. Rumalla was sincere in listening to what I wanted from this procedure, and then he gave his professional opinion on how to accomplish this. I wanted to look natural and proportional (to my curvy figure) and thought that a C cup would be great. I knew that I wanted silicone implants under the muscle because it looks and feels more natural. He actually suggested a full C rather than a small C in order to be more proportional, and I am SO GLAD he did! He and his staff answered all of our questions and provided excellent care throughout the entire process. Another aspect with which I was extremely pleased was in their choice of facility and anesthesiologist. My previous experience with any outpatient surgery has always included vomiting after surgery, which was a concern for me. I don't know what the anesthesiologist gave me, but I did not have any vomiting or nausea after my surgery....NONE at all!! I also greatly appreciated the post-op care I received. The check-ups were frequent and rather quick, but gave me opportunities to ask questions throughout the entire process. Dr. Rumalla and his nursing staff were excellent overall! My procedure was at the end of March, and I feel and look great! We also enjoyed their sense of humor, which made us feel relaxed and comfortable; yet, they were professional, which allowed us to feel confident in the process! Advise for those who may be considering this procedure: Be open to his professional opinion....he KNOWS what's going to look best! Listen to his instructions...it works!! The recovery time will be short if you follow them. You will love your new look! It's so exciting!! Don't wait any longer!

Dr. Rumalla and staff are amazing! I couldn't of picked a better surgeon. He will give you real expectations and his staff are always there to help.

I think that my doctor is the Best!! First, I am so thirlled with my results - only 3 weeks post op - low, thin scar, and absolutely no complications. I felt like the time Dr. Rumalla spent with me AFTER the surgery was exceptional!! I saw him 5 times in 10 days for regular followup visits (and he sees patients on Saturday!) He really wants to see the progress during those vital first weeks after surgery. And I never had to wait more than a few minutes at each followup visit. His nursing staff is amazing. And they have nothing but praise for him. Some have worked for other plastic surgeons and think that he is unique in his patient care, and his abilities. And I know doctors that have used him. If you live in the DFW area, especially Tarrant county and are looking to have a procedure done. I would highly recommend Dr. Rumalla.

My entire experience with Dr. Rumalla and his entire staff was a wonderful experience. He is very detailed and thorough with every step of the surgery. He is probably one of the best doctors I have been to - very professional, fantastic follow-up on post op procedures. I was 100% guaranteed and would recommend him to all my friends. I saw 10 other PS docs before making my decision and am glad I made the right decision.

Right from the start when I emailed his office with my concerns he has been nothing but supportive in helping me achieve my goals. I had somewhat of a time line I wanted to have my surgery done by and I feel like he has bent over backwards to help me do so. I know if I need anything he and his staff are just a phone call away. I would 100% recommend Dr. Rumalla and his staff!

While contemplating getting breast lift with implants and a mini-tuck, I consulted with many different PS. Dr. R by far was the best. He is kind and gentle and has a great sense of humor. He does not rush with his patients, so sometimes (not often), I had to wait for him. He is very thorough. He is also very thorough with post-op. I have seen him just about every other day for the first week post op. That helps put my mind at ease that everything is going good.

I choose Dr. Rumalla after making an educated decision. I am a nurse, but don't work in the field of plastic surgery, however, have heard the names of many local surgeons over time. I interviewed several and just felt like from a patient perspective, that we were a good "fit".

Excellent surgeon who took great care to listen to me and answer all my questions. He helped guide me through the process and his advice was very accurate. My end result is beautiful, sexy and very tasteful. His office staff is delightful and took great care of me. The surgery center staff is so caring and professional, I was so comfortable throughout the whole process. I've had no complications and my recovery has been very smooth. I'm 6 weeks out and everything is great! I'm more than pleased and my boyfriend is thrilled!

Dr. Rumalla did an excellent job with my reconstructive surgery. He was VERY thorough, and provided me with great recommendations not only about my surgery, but other ongoing treatments I was dealing with. He took the time to study my file and made recommendations that were best for me. Extremely personable and helpful.

The only reason I gave Dr Rumalla 4/5 on time spent with me is because his office is very busy. He did answer all of my pre op questions but seemed in a bit of a hurry to get to his next patient. I met another PS whose office was empty when I went and but that didn't feel right either. I felt better about Dr Rumalla's office having so many people having confidence in him. His staff in the office and at the surgery center were great. I'm a nurse and was very impressed with the nursing staff at the surgery center. The follow ups are frequent which is good that he keeps a close eye on things but they are pretty rushed and someimes I feel like I have to keep prodding to get my questions answered during the appointment. I'm very happy with my results so far.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Rumalla! He literally saved my life! After my surgery I was having trouble breathing and received a call from Dr. Rumalla one day to say that he was thinking about me, had done some research on my symptoms and he wanted me to go to the emergency room immediately for a CT scan. A blood clot was found and treatment started immediately. During my hospital stay they had checked for blood clots in my legs, but not hips, which is were it had originated. Had it not been for his attention to detail and tireless support and care for his patient I don't know what would have happened. He goes above and beyond to put safety at the forefront and his attention to detail and artistry in his work is unsurpased! He has multiple visits with you post op to make sure everything is healing properly and pre op attention to detail is impressive as well. He was the only Dr. that I met with that took the time to ask questions about my overall health, why did I need a hysterectomy?, and scheduled blood work to make sure my levels would be suffiecient for surgery. No other Dr. took that kind of time and dedication to the true medicine and care of me as a patient. I knew right away he would be the best choice for this procedure! I am thrilled with the outcome!! My stomache is flat and my breasts are lifted and perky again. Now everyone that I know and anyone who asks, I tell them how great he is and what a great decision it was to not only have the surgery, but to chose such an outstanding Dr. Thank you Dr. Rumalla-you are the best!!!

As I stated in my earlier review; Dr. Rumalla was a fantastic choice. He is so attentive, and he makes sure that every request is heard and acted upon. I felt so confident that when I came out of surgery I would be satisfied with my result. I was very nervous, as I had never had an operation of any kind before, and Dr. Rumalla made sure I was as comfortable as humanly possible heading into this life changing event. I would recommend him to everyone I know for any type of plastic surgery.

I did my research but also had several friends that had personal experiences with him and one that has worked with him and testified to his wonderful bedside manner. I chose to meet with Dr. Rumalla and I am so glad that I did. Dr. Rumalla and his staff are ridiculously awesome!!! He was my first consult, and my last. I knew after meeting with him that there was no point in talking to anyone else. He understood my ultimate goal and brought it to a reality. His words, "Aggressive but not reckless".Dr. Rumalla reassured me over and over again that he did all my body could hold and he promised I would be very happy. He was right!!! I'm more than ecstatic and absolutely love my look! The best advice that I can give is, listen to and believe what he tells you. He is an artist, a perfectionist and his work reflects who he is. I know that if I ever decide to do any additional "upgrading" I will go no further than Dr. Rumalla. Thank you so much for making me feel unbelievable!!

My lap band surgeon, Dr Robert Sewell (who is also awesome) gave me his name a couple of years ago---but it took me some time to work up the courage to actually go and see him! I love that I felt no pressure from him to do the procedure. I inquired about a breast lift too but he honestly told me my breasts looked great and unless I wanted to go larger (which I didn't) it would be a waste of $$ to do anything with them.

Online and friend referral. I met with several surgeons before decided to use Dr. Rumalla and I have no doubt I made the right decison for me. I was intimidated by the idea of plastic surgery, and he and his office staff are down to earth, friendly and made me feel comfortable from my first consultation. He has been available anytime I've needed him, is present for all of my post surgical follow ups and seems to genuinely care about me and my happiness with the results.

Dr. Rumalla and his staff made me feel at ease from my first appointment to my latest follow up appointment and every appointment in between. He and the nurses were always open and provided wonderful information for all of my questions. I especially liked how often Dr. Rumalla checked in on me post-surgery. The required follow up visits were frequent and I definitely appreciated the attention to detail. I went to see one other surgeon before Dr. Rumalla. He was also a good surgeon, but I just felt more comfortable with Dr. Rumalla after the consultation. He actually drew on me to show me where the incisions would be and it made it easier to visualize my intended results. I felt very comfortable at each of my pre-op visits. I felt like Dr. Rumalla told it to me straight. He made the time for my questions. If he was not available, the nurses were always helpful and made sure I got my answers. I maybe waited 5-7 minutes for an appointment at one time, but usually I would be taken back and seen within minutes of arriving. Everyone was very courteous and friendly. Loved everyone there!

Dr. Rumalla is a very energetic and encouraging doctor and he does very good work! I read about Dr. Rumalla in an area magazine. I decided to make an appointment to meet him and ask my questions. He answered my questions that first visit. I saw him at least two or three times before I scheduled my surgery, each time with more questions and fears. He answered my questions and addressed my fears. He understands how important these types of procedures are to his patients.

I was given a personal referral to Dr. Rumalla from a friend, her results were beautiful and she raved about his personality and the care and concern the staff showed for her. My husband and I had visited with other surgeons and left every time concerned that they were not hearing what I was saying they just told me what they thought I needed. Well then we went to meet Dr. Rumalla and we scheduled the procedure while still in his office. He treated us like a lifetime friend and he was so complimentary and understanding.

Dr. Rumalla and his staff make you feel comfortable, important and no doubt in good hands...I have many friends going through the same processes as myself and we compare our experiences and my Dr. Rumalla is by far the most thorough, and I like that. I also very much liked that Dr. Rumalla himself always saw me for every appointment, 'fill', follow-up or otherwise, not a nurse or anyone else... You see, Dr. Rumalla was actually chosen for me by one of the finest breast surgeons in our area. Talking about a double blessing!...though breast cancer would claim what little I had, Dr. Rumalla gave them back, and then some!...I really have been blessed...I look great already and this kind of outcome is what you get when you have a TOP DOC re-building your body AND self-esteem...thank you Dr. Rumalla, your entire team/staff, Harris Methodist Southlake and each and every staff member there...my entire journey so far has ben TOP of the rock...

I chose Dr Rumalla, because he was highly recommended by my OBGYN Dr Alan Cowen. Dr Cowen is also top notch and I trust his recommendation. Dr Rumalla takes great pride in his work and it shows. Dr Rumalla and his staff are fantastic. They were all very friendly and answered all my questions. Everything was top notch all the way. The nurses were out of this world. I have never had such great care. The nurses were very sweet and caring to me and my husband. Dr Rumalla came in the evening after my procedure to help me get up and walk, which was shocking. That is usually left for the nurses. Then he was back first thing the next morning to check on me before I went home. Dr Rumalla and his staff were also very involved in my recovery. I just wanted my body to look normal and for my clothes to fit correctly again.

Word of mouth. Everyone that I have meet that has been to Dr. Rumalla loves him. I went to see Dr Rumalla in Keller after I had heard several people mention his name. He is FANTASTIC!! I had my implants replaced after I took a fall & one started leaking. I had them done by my Dr. in another state. They just weren't right. One was much bigger than the other & one was much higher than the other. Dr. Rumalla fixed everything & they are gorgeous! I recommend Dr. Rumalla to anyone who is considering plastic surgery. He & his staff are all so nice you aren't nervous at all.

I had 2 consultations with other docs prior to meeting w/ Dr. Ramalla. The 1st doc was creapy & the 2nd was OLD and creepy. Dr. Ramalla was highly recommended by a friend. As soon as I met him, I knew he was the one. Open, friendly & approachable with a great sense of humor. I was completely at easy with him and his wonderful office & surgiacal support staff. The nurses at the surgi-center rave about him. Dr. Ramalla is not only a talented surgeon but an artist. I highly recommend him. It was a very positive experience! P.S. His prices were 3000. less than the other two quotes I got.
