Came in first time to potentially find a new primary care physician and simultaneously have prescriptions for controlled substances I have been taking for ten years for ADHD and GAD. Naturally she asked for medical records so I provided a fullcopy of a 2014 psychological report that provided my entire medical and medicinal history. Yet, she made me take a drug screen. The results said I tested positive for Xanax, and assured her that I never have taken nor been prescribed, and that drugs like Zoloft (I take) regularly trigger false positives. She did not believe me, and very cold in her evaluation. During the actual exam, her cell phone went off twice and took a personal call. Not a good fit, but more importantly very disrespectful to a potential new client, to whom she said I would have to sign a 'contract' essentially stating I would not abuse my drugs. Very intensive doctor.

The doctor's visit went smoothly. Dr. Bhavani was extremely kind, courteous, and comforting. However, the first nurse/receptionist who took my weight and height was extremely inaccurate with the measurements. She chipped off a few incheson my height (I'm apparently 4'8"....?) and added a few extra pounds to my weight (I weigh myself daily and the weight on the scale was astronomically off); the nurse had me face the scale and didn't correctly set the height bar on my head, and she had me step on the scale before it even calibrated and jotted down a weight that I don't even recall seeing. Needless to say, a friendly nurse who normally specializes in recording patients' height/weight offered to re-measure me and got my height and weight correctly (and completely incrementally off from the first nurses's measurements). When she went back to the database to correct the numbers, even she was surprised how off the first values were. I was fortunately taller and weighed less than what the first nurse told me. I would suggest the office have the nurses correctly doing their jobs instead of having receptionists who don't know how to precisely measure and record weight do them. For a petite person who is very weight-conscious, this is a big deal.

This was my initial visit. She warmly welcomed me as a new patient, and actually took the time to review my medical history, etc. She made me feel like a human being & not just an insurance #. I look forward to seeing her again.

Staff was completely unorganized, no one reviewed my chart. Medication that was supposed to be given was never ordered. I will not be returning and I suggest staying away from this incompetent office.

Filled out paper work, waited about 5-7 minutes before getting taken back for questions and vitals. Doctor was pleasant, asked questions about me and did a thorough exam. Would recommend. Staff was very pleasant as well.

It was my first appointment and very quick so I wasn’t able to really gauge much. From what time I was there though I can say that she was nice and I didn’t wait long at all. I was in andout the front door in 30 minutes. I will for sure be going back!

She straight up walked out of the room while I was talking to her. So she didn't give me several prescriptions I needed. Turned out she didn't even take my health insurance when they said they would. Overall very unhelpful.

There by myself for over an hour before anyone saw me. I was by myself with no other patients in the waiting room with me. Took my lunch to meet with the doctor. Since I had scheduled an appointment there shouldbe a reasonable wait time. The PA was decent once I saw her.

My wait time was long due to my insurance needing to be changed. Other than that I loved the service. The receptionist was very kind and worked with me. Dr. Lagadapati was nice and gave me very good tips. I would definitely recommend her to others!

This practice is absolutely awful. For the face of your practice such as receptionists to flat out lie to your face for the doctors best interest is absolutely insane. I wouldn't see these so called doctors if I was about todie and my life depended on it. I hope someone sees this and has the power to put a stop to this practice.

It's truly hard to believe that she is a doctor. And the PA there is really miss leading in every way known. All in all its sad to think it's a legal practice.

Dr.Bhavani was very personable, she listened and made me feel very comfortable. She took her time and went over all of my options, she's a genuine person. I spent about 15 minutes with her and I felt that she valued mythoughts, concerns and took them into consideration before making any decisions. I will be returning!

Won't treat specific conditions or at least make an effort to do so. Several times I asked for support and different alternative treatments for my health status and consistently unwilling to go forth. Does not take time to thoroughly go throughyour medical conditions nor listens to all of your concerns. Does not recommend anything. She leaves you without answers and if she happens to refer you, she will not continue care while awaiting for that specialist. High and dry and left to care for self. Barely listens to anything. Sorry but I feel like I made a mistake in choosing her as my doctor.

I had debilitating pain in my left leg. The Doctor and A Nurse Practitioner saw me and I found them very helpful and knowledgeable. As I am not local she prescribed a course of treatment to tide me over till myappointment with my own doctor back home next week. Good treatment and good common sense and a great bedside manner.
