I booked my appt. on ZocDoc but when I got there, they didn't have any of my papers or files so I had to fill everything out all over again. After I filled the papers out within five minutes they called my name and I went to the back. The doctor was nice and friendly, and did everything well.
I felt very comfortable with my doctor. I will definitely be using her as my primary from here on forward. I do have to call to have my return to work letter fixed, but that shouldn't be an issue. The nurse who printed it didnt know what I needed exactly. other than that, this was one of the best appointments I've had. I tend to have anxiety when it comes to these things, but I was very happy with this.
The ladies never answered the phone so I could tell them I would be late.
The wait was long and no paperwork was received that I completed online.
She was very attentive, very nice and had great bedside manners. I'll definitely go back.
i like Dr. Atluri. she is very nice very nice and patient.
Dr. Atluri is very personable and is open to hearing your cares and concerns with trust and professionalism.
The check-in process at Dr.Kalpana Atluri's front desk, post appointment followup and the overall quality of MedStar Harbor Hospital is HORRIBLE! Do not go to MedStar! They are slow and inconsiderate of your time. The bad service completely overshadows the nice personality of Dr.Atluri directly. By then you don't care. Completing the ZocDoc Check-in paper work is meant to save time and to ensure a smooth check-in process once you get to your appointment. I got there and they made me fill out the paper work all over again. Then after seeing multiple staff in the process it took 1 hour to finally get to Dr. Atluri. I had to repeat the information I gave her assistant all over again. What was the purpose of wasting time by sending your assistant if you make me repeat details all over again? Nurses and Dr.Atluri said that they don't have access to the check-in paper work in their ZocDoc account and they double book patients explaining the long wait. Her schedule will show her available when she is NOT. She said she will look into this. I hope so. I won't ever be going back.
Dr. Alturi is very nice and courteous. She had a smile on her face and was extremely approachable.
My appointment was much, much better this time. I figure last time, since it was my first visit, her initial thing was to get my information. This time it was much more informative. Very happy this visit.
She seemed cool and caring. She asked all the right questions
Never going here again. Waited over 70 minutes when I arrived on-time for my appointment. No one came over to tell me that there would be a ridiculous wait. When I was finally seen by the doctor, the doctor looked at me for 5 minutes, then prescribed antibiotics. This did not resolve the issue, and I had to see another doctor instead. No mention of making me wait or any kind of apology. If you like wasting your entire day in the waiting room and being treated as a number by the doctor, by all means, go here.
Appointment was triple booked, then about 5 minutes before scheduled time, we were informed the doctor was going to be late getting to the office.
The result of my appointment was to have lab work done. Dr. Alturi told me that she would call me in 3 days. It has now been weeks. I have called multiple times. Each time a receptionist tells me that Dr. Alturi will call me to review the results (which are in). But I never hear anything.
I loved the experience. The staff made me feel so comfortable, even before Dr Atluri came in to see me. I will definitely go back there!
The front desk staff is great, they were very busy and handled a patient escalation well. The residents dr. Atluri has are incredible too, however I did not feel that dr. Atluri listened to a word I said and was not understanding or compassionate AT ALL.
It wasn't a bad visit. I went early in the morning because I'm an in as early as possible kind of person. I found Dr. Atluri no different from any other doctor I saw when I lived up in NYC. She asked a ton of questions. I have Hypothyroidism and she asked questions related to that. I think her bedside manor was a bit lacking. Like she turned away from me while she asked questions and turned the computer to totally face her, which wasn't a big deal. There was little eye contact while she questioned me. Not that I need her to like stare at me but a little acknowledgement would have been nice. It was a little robotic feeling. That being said she was very thorough. My appointment went nicely and I was in with her for no longer than twenty minutes.
Very professional. Never made me feel like my concerns weren't important. Willing to go the extra mile for a treatment plan that will work for me.
I truly enjoyed my visit. I will continue to use her as my pcp.
