I love her! She takes the time to listen to your ailments and really puts a lot of effort into how to resolve them. She is really personable and not cold like some doctors are. I'd recommend everyone to go toher. There is a little bit of wait time less than 20 minutes, but you'll understand why once you are seen by her. She doesn't do a rush evaluation, she really takes the time to help you. You don't leave her office thinking about what just happened, your well informed.

Dr. Jala is one of a kind in a field of average. She never seems rushed, always gives you all the time you need, and is sharp on most every area. If you are looking for family doctor, she is the one.

Dr. Jalla was very thorough and took her time during my appointment, which I greatly appreciated. While there was quite a wait (about an hour), I didn't mind because her bedside manner was so excellent and her caring and knowledge were so evident. I would highly recommend her.

She was very friendly and easy to talk to. However, office smelled like cigarette smoke which was a pretty big turn-off for a doctor. Nothing against her personally, but probably won't go back. :/

Dr. Jalla is thorough and pleasant, and she explained my prescriptions instead of just writing them and handing them to me, which I appreciated. Waiting room times aren't bad at all.

Dr. Girja R. Jalla was very nice. She has very calming voice. Whatever I complained about she said " don't worry. We will get to the button of this. You will get better". I personally liked her as a professional anda person. Doctor even gave me a hug at the end which made me feel comfortable with her as a doctor and person. The only problem is the wait. They schedule 15 minute appointments and you end up waiting an hour to get in. I would recommend showing up late.

She is very smart, patient and kind. She makes you come in a lot (every 3 months for some meds) so that's the only downside.

Wow. What a total WASTE of time and money! I went for a routine wellness exam/physical hoping for a thorough check of my systems. But this doctor reads Q's off a computer screen to check medical history and ailments, and onlyhands out dated pamphlets when you have a question. And when I mentioned one or two concerns, she blandly suggested possible causes without so much as a prescriptive remedy or action for follow up. I practically had to order my own blood work, for chrisssake. Her medical knowledge seems BASIC at best. Useful if it was 1950 and I lived in Nebraska. Not what it should be for 21st century issues and educated patients in a major urban area. Seriously, shockingly awful. Save your time and money.

This was a wonderful "find" of a competent respectful physician. Her friendly engaging staff was a bonus and very appreciated. Having recently relocated here and leaving a physician who provided care for me and my family for over thirty years,I was sure this could not be replaced. I obviously am wrong. Dr. Jalla is a treasure!
