I appreciate Dr. Reddy and his staff. They have helped me get back on my feet. It's easy to make an appointment. The only drawback is the long wait times. It was over 3 hours for me today, but it was worth it.

It will take at least 2-3 hours or more before you are seen past your appointment time. Every time, expect the wait. Bring personal belongings. He is a doctor who is willing to accept that some patients require necessary medications. This is why I see him.

I went to my appt very skeptical after reading the reviews about the wait time. After getting there though, even though they had a wait time it seems they have tackled that problem very well. They put me on a textingprogram so I didn't have to wait in the office I was able to go get lunch and was texted when it was my turn to come back. I came right back to the office and went right back. It was great

This was my initial visit with this Dr. Reddy. I completed all my paperwork online prior to the appointment and arrived 15 minutes early to complete any other documents. After about 20 minutes I was called back so a nurse couldtake my vital signs. I was sent back to the waiting room where I waited another hour and 45 minutes before I saw the Doctor. Once I saw the doctor, things went very quickly. He's personable and seems very knowledgeable. I just wish the wait wasn't so long.

Friendly staff. Dr. Reddy was great once I got back to see him. He even apologized about the long wait time for today which I've rarely heard a Dr. do. I arrived for my appointment on time, quickly finished the necessarypaperwork and then had to wait just over an hour and a half get back to see the Dr. This was my first time at the office (or to any Psych for that matter) and they were rather busy. I will go back because of the friendly staff.... and also because they are the only practice anywhere close to me (23 miles away) that accepts my insurance. So tie on principle, win by default.

The doctor and staff was very friend and helpful; very professional. The wait time was a little long and seems to be the case, but waiting for an appt seems to be standard these days at most offices, but do allowan hour or so beyond your schedule time, however this too comes with the flexibility the office offers.

The staff was extremely kind, friendly, and professional. Unfortunately, that's where the positive aspects of this office end. My wait time was 3.5 hours. I did arrive to my appointment 30 minutes early, but even counting from my appointmentstart time, that's still 3 hours. Dr. Reddy seemed rushed and hassled once he got to me, as if he didn't have time for a consultation amongst all the other patients he'd overbooked. He wouldn't listen to all of the symptoms I wanted to discuss and instead insisted that I be medicated for something I showed only a few symptoms of. He rarely made eye contact and would react to my concerns with dismissive sarcasm. If you're looking for somebody to get pills from, this is the guy. If you're seeking actual help for your individual needs, look a little harder.

Waited at least 2 and a half hours both times I saw Dr. Reddy. When I finally got in to see him the appointment lasted all of about 5 minutes after such a long wait. It seemed like Dr. Reddy justwanted to hand me a prescription and get me out of his office as soon as possible. I tried asking some questions but he was invested in his computer and seemed annoyed when I wanted answers. Maybe others had a better experience and that's why everyone here waits so long to see him but I will be looking for another doctor.

I've seen this doctor a couple times now, and I have waited at least an hour each time even though I made it early to my appointment. I waited two hours for this appointment, and when I saw the doctor, heseemed to rush me out of the office quickly and didn't give me much of his time to discuss my concerns.

Dr. Reddy's office takes days off and then tries to cram missed appointments into the next week's schedule, causing everyone to wait hours beyond their appt time to see him. I would see Dr. Reddy once a month, and I thinkthink the least amount of time I waited to see him (for about 5 min) was 1 1/2 hours. The last appointment wait time was the longest, it was 4 hours. It was on that day I asked Dr. Reddy why there is always a wait time...his response: I guess you just caught us on an off day, to which I responded, no this happens every time I come here. He responded with: have you considered seeing another doctor? He wrote my prescription and sent me on my way, and then had his secretary call me and tell me that he was terminating me as a patient.

The Dr. appears to know his stuff and has near instant recall of previous visits. Comes highly recommended by Luke Behavioral Health He has a great staff from his M.A. Heather to the ladies at the front desk. Biggest drawback isDr. Reddy appears notoriously overbooked and wait times to see him can easily be 1- 1/2 hr later than scheduled while his time with patients can typically be less than 15 minutes--so it appears. All in all, a good psychologist

Please note that I was a half-hour late to the appointment, as I just relocated to the area and had difficulty finding the office, so the wait time I have denoted may be skewed due to my late arrival. Wonderfully friendlystaff. Organized, efficient, and Dr. Reddy was great. He took the time to answer all my questions and was the first MD I've had in a long time that could actually operate a computer. :) Great first experience.

The wait was horrible, what made things worse was the cramped waiting room everyone had to use together. There were so many people waiting that a handful had to stand outside. We were all subjected to watching courtroom paternity testing realityTV for the 1 hour 30 miniutes we all had to sit in the waiting room. I think all 20 or so patients that were crammed in that tiny room all waited about the same time. None of them seemed shocked about the wait so it must be pretty typical. I will be looking for a different doctor that values my time.

Dr Reddy is an excellent Doc and I would recommend him to anyone. The issue is this; however, if you plan to see him, expect your wait time to be at least 90 minutes and up to 3 hours after youroriginally scheduled appointment. I have been to visit Dr. Reddy three (3) times in the past year and the soonest I was able to see him was today 90 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. It does no good to arrive early either. The other two times I visited Dr. Reddy, my wait times were 4 hours and 3 hours respectively.

This physician seems to run a pill mill for addicts. The wait times average over 2 hours. On my last appointment he did not show up for work for 1 hour after the first patient was scheduled. After conferring with fellowpatients I learned long waits and sparse consultations are common. I witnessed conduct I consider unethical. I would never recommend this doctor. When I questioned him about these problems he turned hostile.

By the time I actually get into his office, I am exhausted and frustrated from waiting and just want to go home. He is helpful in the respect that he writes prescriptions I need, but besides that is not really lookingto get to know you which I would assume the most successful and helpful doctors take the time to know and understand their patients.

Dr. Reddy was very kind and has great credentials. The wait was long but I felt he was worth the wait because he treats addictions and there is a great need for Drs like him for people who need this kindof care. I saw him for another reason and he was helpful by giving a recommendation more suitable.
