The doctor was thorough and didn't rush when talking to me. However, two things will keep me from recommending him: 1) The waiting time was 2 hours (with an appointment and me being there on time). 2) When his assistant calledme to confirm that my allergy test results were ready, I specifically asked to check and let me know if it's all negative so that I can skip a follow-up visit and avoid chilling out in a waiting room. She talked to the doctor and told me he wants to discuss something with me, so I have to make an appointment. Well, there was nothing to discuss - I saw the doctor, he confirmed that my results are negative and I don't have any allergies. I felt tricked into making another appointment and losing my time there, not to mention additional bucks spent on co-pay for just 5 minutes of doctor's time.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE! - if you are planning on going for allergy consultation/testing make sure you are off any allergy meds (although you are permitted to use nasal spray) for 5 days prior to your scheduled appointment (hence planthe appointment accordingly). The allergy meds will mask your true allergies. Otherwise you will have a very pleasant and thorough conversation with the doctor about your allergy history however you will not be tested and will need to make (and subsequently pay for) a follow up appointment.

Dr. Yalamanchili was the best allergist I have seen in my entire 30 years of life. My whole life I suffered from mystery allergies. Always blamed on cats and dogs by other doctors. Dr. Yalamanchili was able to find what wasreally going on with my immune system within 2 visits. Something that no other doctor has been able to do for years. Dr Yalamanchili has great bedside manner, is humorous and truly cares to get to know his patients and listen to their concerns. He was very thorough and explanatory . He is absolutely my favorite doctor in my team of doctors and I will continue to see him. . I am very happy to have become a new of his patients. He is trustworthy. Within one visit he had already figured out half of what was wrong with me. By the second visit he had the rest of answers and a treatment plan. The office is incredibly clean and the recepcionist is a sweet heart and cares about the patients as well. I WILL CONTINUE to be a patient regardless If i have to come from far!

The doctor was very kind and friendly, as were the nurses and receptionists. Overall they were very helpful. There was a little bit of a wait despite the office having few patients but since Dr. Yalamanchili is a specalist I feellike it comes with the territory as he has to pay more attention to detail.
