Love Dr. Puttagunta, great personality and bedside manner. Office is always backed up though, you have to wait longer than normal to get your blood draw... overall I was at the office for over 1.5hours which is way longer than necessaryfor a blood draw, flu shot & quick talk/update of about 5 minutes.

Preventive visit was turned into a preventive visit, plus an extra office visit. Very shady and arbitrary. Lady checking me out said that Dr. has the discretion to add an office visit and no other further explanation. Nothing was discussed thatwasn't part of a normal annual preventive exam. Appears to be an extra way to bill insurance companies and patients. I have a high deductible plan, so i am very aware of doctor pricing. I had a good visit last year, so this new policy/scam is disappointing. I will not be going back to this establishment and wouldn't recommend it.

I am very happy with Dr. Divi. She was knowledgeable and took the time to get to know my health history as it was my first visit. She even spent more time than any other dr I have seen, explaining theclinical reasons to take a pariticular medication and why she would prescribe it. I really appreciate her valuable time and kindness. All the office staff I encountered was efficient and helpful.

Dr. Divi was awesome! She was very kind and caring, spending time going into detail with the main points of concern that I had during my visit. She tried her best to make me feel comfortable and while explaining what Ican do to make my conditions better, she wrote them down for me so that I can take it home and review later! I told her a list of things and from the beginning she told me that she will be able to cover about 5 things in detail, however, she is so sweet- we touched on all of the topics! I did have one last question, but it was my fault that I did not ask her when she was in the room! She truly is a caring PCP. She told me to get insurance before coming in to get something done, bc she knew that it would be pricey for me. She is so awesome!! =) Def go to her if you're a female looking for a female PCP! =)

Dr. Divi was great! She spent 30 minutes or more with me going through my concerns and talking through the treatment options. I do not think I have ever had a doctor spend that much time actually seeing me (usually thedoctor comes in for 5-10 minutes at the end). Dr. Divi was very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable asking questions. If you are looking for a great primary care provider in Dallas, I highly, highly recommend Dr. Divi.

The office/waiting area, lab area, and check out area was very overcrowded. The doctor was not open to listening to my concerns and not willing to compromise on treatment. I was diagnosed with Pharyngitis two days later also because she wouldnot prescribe an antibiotic as I asked. She made assumptions based on seeing tattoos on my body as well. She didn't seem to want to hear my opinion or concerns about my own healthcare. I ended up finding another dr. Her office also would not use my ZocDoc info upon check in, I had to demand they pull it up and even then I had to refill out all the SAME questions again.

Dr. Divi was very nice and professional. I was asked all the expected questions,plus a few more. She seemed to want to get to the bottom of my problems with a correct diagnosis. I was surprised by the waiting area itwas old and cramped and their lack of parking outside. I waited in the outer office for just under an hour and I was about to leave when I was called to an inner office. The whole office experience felt like a fast food restaurant.

She does not listen. She makes a diagnosis before she hears all the facts. Rather than consider any other possibility, she sticks with her original diagnosis. Even after the test proved negative, she still prescribed medication for her original diagnosis.

Dr Divi was recommended to me from a friend that I work with. This is the first time I met a doctor that spent time with me to discuss list of things I should be working on to improve my health.She wasn't rushing and is a good listener. In addition to my physical, she was also able to recommend the list of shots that I need to visit a foreign country (I know some doctors ask you to do your own research). Highly recommend this doctor!

All went great with the physician. However, I had to have labs drawn and the lab tech was very rude and argumentative when I asked her to please wash or use hand sanitizer before sticking me with the needle. She arguedthat her gloves were clean. I tried to explain to her that gloves do not make your hands clean. I also mentioned I am in the healthcare field and work with sick babies. She then stated as she washing her hands that I should know then that "clean" gloves are just as good. Hand washing/hand sanitize is the best way to prevent the transmission of germs.
