Dr. Padma Sripada, MD

Internist, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

* Dear Visitor: ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + Please visit our website doctorpadma.com for practice details. + Appointment cancellations less than 24 Hours before will be charged $25. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I went to medical school at Osmania Medical College, India, and completed Residency at Abington Memorial Hospital, PA. I worked there for a year before moving to Albany, NY in 2001. I worked in an outpatient practice owned by Northeast Health from 2001 to June 2006. This was a traditional primary care practice with all the common problems faced by the large group practices today–rushed office visits, long waiting times, phone lines that were impossible to get through, missed reports, and endless bureaucracy. After unsuccessful attempts to fix some of the problems, I realized I was becoming extremely unhappy in this work environment, and opened a solo practice in June 2006. Besides work I spend as much time as possible with my daughter. I play my slide guitar, and sing Indian classical music, and would love to learn to dance, if I ever have the time.

Dr. Padma is intelligent, compassionate, and skilled. She was a great comfort to my elderly mother in the last year of her life. Now she is taking excellent care of me.

Dr. Shripada takes the time to listen to my concerns and advises me in a professional manner. She does not talk down to me and if I don't understand what she is trying to convey, she explains until I do. Shecares about the whole person she is treating, and not just a series of symptoms. I would definitely recommend her as a family doctor.

She does not listen when you have concerns- she only has her views and opinions on any subject (Stress /High Blood Pressure / weight/ elevated blood sugar) and if you disagree with stupid strategies, her she gets mad. What kind ofDr. will not treat you when you have serious physical problems. I didn't like her answer answer to getting rid of stress was to find a new job... I am sorry but getting a new job will not alleviate my stress... you idiot! Very poor bedside manner all she does is sit on the computer. you may think she is compassionate, but she isn't!! Very disappointed and I would strongly advise anyone to find another MD. And her nurse is incompetent and lazy. I wouldn't give her any stars if I could!

I love Dr. Sripada, but my appointment today was a little rough and it was mainly because of the receptionist. It took 10 minutes to check me in and another 5-10 minutes to check me out. The receptionist was new tome- he was an elderly man that didn't appear to know how a lot of the check in/out stuff. It was incredibly frustrating but other than that, I love Dr. Sripada and will continue going to her. Hopefully the next check in/out process is a lot quicker.

I've been a patient of Dr. Sripada for many years. I've rarely waited for more than few minutes to be seen. Today in fact I'd barely sat down when I was called in. Sripada is professional, knowledgeable, and kind. I likethat I can schedule an appointment, communicate with the office, and view my health records online.

She does not take the time with her patients that she used to. She does not listen to what you have to say. She's very straight to the point no compassion. She treats some patients better then others. I have notleft one time seeing her where I have been happy with my service.

This kind Doctor also brings only first class staff into her office. Her nurse was out sick that day so she was running behind, they all apologized profusely and I was still in and out of her office within an hour.As it was a new patient appointment with a concerning issue, she took her time with me and explained things in a way no doctor ever has. I have been too scared to go back to a doctor for about 5 years, and I can honestly say that I felt so at ease with her I can never see myself leaving her practice. They are one of a kind. Continuity of care has been amazing, the doc and her staff have been doing everything possible to make sure that every test I need is happening quickly. Her truly caring nature and careful examination is how a Physician is SUPPOSED to be. Miss Cara and Miss Justine follow suite with all of the patients and making sure they get the best care. Knowing I have finally found a doctor like her has taken a huge weight off my shoulders that I have carried for far too long.

She is great! Love that she is solo, I feel like my care is individualized rather than being in an office that you are herded into like cattle and end up waiting 2 hours or more for a 10 min. appointment.I love the ease of making my own appointments and not waiting more than a few minutes to be seen. Also love contacting her by email and actually getting a response in short order. Parking is easy too!
