  • It is very shocking news that he is no more with us. I worked with him for almost 10 years. He was such a great man, very down to earth, and with a great sense of Humor. He was always available and ready to help in all circumstances. I remember, during coffee breaks Veni, Dr. Adduri, and I use to have intellectual conversations as well as sharing of stories about our cultures and food, which I use to enjoy very much. They were such a great couple together. My deepest sympathies to Veni. Please accept my deep condolences. May his soul rest in peace. Amen. - Posted by: Ayesha Khan (Former Employee and Freind) on: Mar 23, 2022

  • I met Dr. Adduri way back in 1975 when I had an accident that resulted in a foot injury, I was very young at that time. At that time he was working with Dr. McQueen. As I grew older and became an adult, I continued to see Dr Adduri for future foot surgeries that enabled me to be productive in a professional career. During my adulthood Dr. Adduri fixed my carpal tunnel on both my hands and once again he made me be able to continue on in my career. Dr. Adduri was very compassionate and concerned about my wellbeing; as he always asked me how work was going. Thank you Dr. Adduri for everything you did for me, you will be missed. - Posted by: Doug Ingrtam (Former Patient) on: Mar 22, 2022
