Doctor Tummala is a highly knowledgeable and genuinely sincere ENT Doctor. She took the time to listen to all the manydetails of my complaint and put together an effective treatment strategy that included more than a few twists and turns. She was not satisfied until all efforts had been applied and my condition had improved. She performed an extra service that I had not even requested. I will not hesitate to recommend her in the strongest terms and I will be returning as a very satisfied patient!

There was a stack of 10 pages of forms to fill when I got there, which begs to the question of why I’d use Zocdoc at all if I’m going to have to fill out more forms everywhere I go at the appointments themselves.

First time in 24 years that I didn’t experience pain during an ear cleaning. Dr. Tummala was kind & patient; took the time to listen to my concerns & saved me from ear aches on my long flight the next day.

Thorough, attentive, understanding, thoughtful, and all round great doctor. I was highly skeptical of zocdoc.com, but my daughter forced me to check out the site because I had had an ear ache for about a month, and it wasn't getting any better. Dr. Tummala gave me a thorough check up. She didn't recommend any expensive drugs or treatments. She assured me that it was just severe allergies that were causing the problems, and she recommended a simple and inexpensive solution with drugs I already take. I would definitely go back to her and recommend her to others.

I am so grateful. Thanks to ZocDoc I found this appointment the day before for my laryngitis that was endangering my work. Agree with other reviews, Dr. T. is caring, comfortable demeanor with plenty of time for my questions and clear explanations. Technology is less in the Reston office, but sufficient and guess that's why she still had availability. Allow extra time for parking lot (full), but it's free!

Life changing visit! I booked my appt on ZocDoc and was able to be seen the following day. I was having hearing problems due to ear wax build up. Dr. Tummala was able to address my problem during the same visit. She was amazing and I would return to her for future issues. The facility is modern and clean. The staff were friendly and attentive. My hearing is restored thanks to Dr. Tummala!

I saw her today. She listened well and was very responsive. She wanted me to see a specialist and went out of her way to call the dr herself and wait on hold until it was done. I would definitely recommend her.
