Super thorough, and she listens extremely well. I've had the issue of docs being being dismissive in the past and that was not the case at all with Dr. Tangirala. I really liked how she was concerned with the entire pictureof health, including psychological and physical rather than just medication management. I highly recommend her.

My appointment was at 8 am and I wasn't seen until 8:55. Was given no updates while I was waiting. Visit with doctor was less than 3 minutes. Absolutely ridiculous service.

Dr. Tangirala, Is very well mannered and put me at ease during a visit for an Eye infection. She made me feel like a Partner in my treatment ! I have been a patient of BMCNY for 4 years and the Doctors treat me with patience and respect.

Doctor was great but her administration said they ordered my prescription but never did so I had to wait at Duane Read for an hour and called doctors office back while no one picked up. Bad experience.

The doctor answered my questions and was pleasant to talk with. She recommended some over the counter medications which helped. However, before seeing the doctor, the assisstant seemed unsure of herself and not competent in completing somebasic tasks. For example, after she took my blood pressure, I asked her what it was. She told me it was 120 over either 80 or 60. Huh? I'll leave it at that.

Dr Tangirala was friendly and communicated well - however, the medical assistant I saw beforehand could use training on the following: - She greeted me (and the patient prior to me) without ever looking me in the eye or introducing herselfand her role. She stared at her computer as I walked in the door and made no attempt at eye contact even when she took my vitals - The medical assistant wore no name tag (so I'm still not even sure if she was a medical assistant) - There was no indication that the medical assistant washed her hands before seeing me. The assistant wore lots of jewelry on her wrists and had painted nails - all lovely places for bacteria and disease to grow and be transferred to other patients. It's not appropriate for dangling jewelry or painted nails, let alone no hand washing in between patients. Putting gloves without hand washing does not constitute safe infection control practice. At the very least, please tell employees to wash hands before and after each patient. It's for their safety and ours as patients.

The office was dingy, disgusting and smelled bad. I couldn’t wait to get out. I just went in for a quick check up, but would not want to receive any treatment more extensive than that. The staff also seemed to lack general health/medical knowledge.

I waited over an hour past my appointment time to be seen. I was in the room less than 5 minutes total, and felt very rushed. The doctor did not ask any questions regarding my symptoms and instead immediately wrote mea script. Further, when I asked about an ancillary concern, she was standoffish as if I needed another appointment for this new question. Post-visit, my prescription took 2 weeks to be filled as there were communication issues between the office and pharmacy (unsure which side fault lies on). All-around, I will not go back and would not recommend to anyone.

Horrible experience. I spent 2+ hours in the waiting room with not the slightest acknowledgment from any staff member.

I was hesitant at first beause I received an email that my appointment would not be with Dr. Tangirala and I received multiple phone calls that I would need to change my appointment (even though I had already agreed to comein earlier after the first phone call). However, when I got there everyone was polite, and the PA I met with (Sara Leso) was very helpful and concise. I definitely plan on going back.

Classic bait and switch. I scheduled to see Dr. Tangirala but was contacted by phone to be rescheduled to a different date. I later received an email that the appointment was in fact for a different physician. When I showed upfor my appointment, neither Dr. Tangirala or the other physician were anywhere to be seen. The office staff informed me that I would be seen by a physician's assistant instead and offered no further explanation.

I ended up not meeting with Dr. Tangirala, but one of the assistants. I'm not one to complain, but will say this was the most unprofessional encounter I've had with a medical office. No signage in the building for the doctorso I went through a few floors to try and find her office. Then when I got there I was told that I'd have to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes than my original scheduled time for what is a quick consultation visit. When I told them to cancel my meeting and that I couldn't wait that long, suddenly I was able to be seen right away. I don't plan on going back.

Very good experience. The doctor who helped with me gave detailed explanation about symptoms and what I should expect in the following weeks.
