I was looking for a "forever" doctor and I found her! Dr. K was kind, spoke clearly and to me not at me. She listened to me and I rambled for a bit but she paid attention and explained things tome and I understood my health better. I highly recommend her.

Was not able to talk about follow up exam b/c I couldn’t wait any longer. Was in the office 50 min. Booking an appointment has no advantage over walk in. Still have to wait and close to an hour is unacceptable.I was there due to miscommunication on their part. Was told to contact them.

My appointment was at 12.30 and doctor came in by 1.00pm est.Before the doctor, a lady nurse came in and refused to listen to me and note down all my complaints I had and suggested me that "I would ask youto stop exercising to cure your illness and you dont have to see a doctor" and slammed the door and left.Later I spoke to the doctor about all my complaints as Dr Subhadra Karunanidhi was patient enough.I was satisfied with the doctor and had horrible experience with the lady nurse(name unknown).
