Verified Patient Reviews
I love Dr. challa. She makes me feel like a person and not just a patient. I can tell she generally cares about me. :)
Good overall visit. However, it did take a while - I was there for over an hour and a half for a routine physical.
Dr. Challa seems good. It was a brief appointment and she did not say much except that she wants to recheck me in a couple weeks. I wasn't happy about waiting for 40 minutes before being taken back
Dr. Sudha challa is well experienced and she diagnoses correctly and prescribe medicines apt. She is very friendly and very prompt in responding to queries even over the phone. I strongly recommend her to all.
Like your job
She did not examine and just diagnosed based on listening to symptoms & prescribed medication, even though the situation needed examining to be safe.
Very helpful and professional!
Very helpful and professonal!
enjoy going to see her. she is very helpful with my situation
I was pleased as usual. Dr. Chsllahas an excellent staff that are very professional and accommodating as needed. I wouldn't ordinary visit the doctor in a Saturday but had an urgent need to have my grands to visit the doctor. Dr. Challa has excellent bedside manners. She has a pleasant personality. She's thorough and welcome questions and comments. She doesn't rush through the appointment.
Dr Challa is the best that, cares for her patients, accurate diagnosis and great follow up! I would recommend this practice for anybody who is looking for a best primary care physician!
Dr. Sudha was very approachable, and I was very much comfortable explaining to her my health issues.
She's a good doctor and makes me feel comfortable.
Very nice and friendly doctor. She listens and provides sound advice. The wait time is very low and she has extremely convenient business hours.
She was very professional and kind
She was great!
Fast efficient and does not waste time. Great staff too.
She is the best in Atlanta
Shes frendli with everybody , taking care all the way to get well
The entire staff was pleasant and very professional. Dr. Challa, was extremely kind and made my wife and I feel welcomed. We came in for a check up and have found our family's Primary Care Physician. We highly recommend Dr. Challa.
She listened to my concerns and needs and even with my allergy test results showing that I have no allergies to anything she did more blood work to figure out why I'm having an allergic reaction. My case is unsolved but I am thankful Dr Sudha took her time to listen give advice and wrote prescriptions to help figure out why I am having an reaction and what the cause is.
Excellent I love her she's a Great Doctor for my children she's actually been a blessing ????????
Great she listened to me took precaution and did what a dr does best solves our problems or try to at least
As usual, very pleasant.
I really enjoyed it. She made me Feel relief.
Dr. Challa is smart, caring, pleasant, and efficient!
Very patient and understanding
Dr. Calla and staff were GREAT! I recently relocated to the area and this was my first visit. I am new to Medicare and was unsure what to expect. Staff were all very helpful and professional. Spent less than half an hr. On first visit and I was half an hr. early! Like my new physician much better than my previous physician. Thanks Dr. CHALLA and staff!!
Dr Challa is one of the best doctors I've had. Doctors like her are very hard to come by! She's caring, patient, smart and kind. Very nurturing and calm. Will continue to see her. Love her a lot!
There were a lot of advertisements for "Youth" and "Detox" products, which was a red flag to start. On the TV they were running a show where they were making brownies without butter, but heaps of sugar. I was half expecting the staff to be wearing Pharma-labeled Jump suits like in Nascar. The Doctor was nice, but made sweeping assumptions and never actually checked me for anything, just glanced at me and prescribed some pain meds. Won'r be coming back.
There was a cockroach on the floor. Enough said
She was great as well as entire staff.!!
It was great! The wait time is never long. The staff is wonderful and Dr Challa is great she gets everything done the right way and straight the point!
Great doctor, great staff, very positive people and the service is fast!
It was amazing. I had a great experience.
Very polite and friendly
I had a long wait time. But the issue was with the Insurance Company's inability to give authorization to the provider.
The staff was amazing! Super friendly. I was lost trying to find the location and they helped me over the phone. I had to bring my son, and since I was getting blood-work and a full annual physical, they played with my baby so I could finish the appointment. Dr Calla was nice and straight to the point. I voiced health concerns and she gave great explanations and made me feel super comfortable. I came here for the Saturday availability + ratings, and it was definitely worth the 30+ minute drive.
Great experience great treatment
It's always a pleasant experience. She knows her stuff and gets right to the point! My husband & kids see her too. We enjoy all the staff there & the atmosphere. Everyone makes you feel very comfortable and they're all very polite. They know us when we come in the door they greet us by name! My kids actually love going to the dr now, I don't have to bribe them anymore cause they know at Dr Challa's office it's always lots of fun! We don't have to wait long either most of the time we're in and out!
The visit was good I felt comfortable and enjoyed that fact the she talked to me during my visit.
It was amazing everything was great and it was also very clean.
Excellent experience. I highly recommend Dr. Challa.
She was very friendly and easy to talk to.
Dr. Challa and her staff are very friendly and professional.
Dr. Sudha is very knowledgeable, and kind!
Dr.Challa patiently listens and addresses all the concerns that patient has.
Dr. Challa is a kind and gentle. She really cares for her patients with compassion and treat them well. She made me feel better every times comming to her office.
Not friendly. Hard to get in touch with someone and it takes multiple times to get answers to questions
HORRIBLE!! Wanted me to be evaluated by a specialist, take a drug test, and come see her monthly for medication I've been on for 6 years. Furthermore, she gave me a useless EKG test to make sure my heart was healthy, which it was, yet she stilll only prescribed me medication for 10 days! After she realized I was dissatisfied she reported to Zocdoc that I missed my appointment so I couldn't review her.
I scheduled for an IUD insertion and also stated that as my reason for visit when completing my registration forms online ahead of the visit. When the doctor came in to see me, she told me they don't actually provide IUDs. I was not called before my appointment and neither the front desk or the medical assistant who took my vitals said anything about them not providing IUDs when I verbally told them that was the reason for my visit. A few months later, I get a huge bill in the mail - they charged me for them to tell me they don't offer the service I had scheduled. Bait and switch. Completely unacceptable.
she is a very very sweet n nice person
I was very surprised to get a same day appointment. Dr. Challa educated me about my condition and what to watch out for. She is trained on many things which put me at ease. The staff was very patient and courteous. I am glad to have her as my new PCP.
Good doctor. But, I am a little concerned about all the weird cosmetic treatments and electrolyte/vitamin drips.
This is The first time I been to a doctors office and have not one compliant. The Doctor was very knowledgeable, showed concern for me, and took care of things right away.
Very gentle Spirit. Address concerns and give great feed on wellness improvement. Will definitely return.
I enjoyed her very nice bedside manner and it was clean and the people were nice.
It looks a little shady on the outside but it's nice on the inside. Everyone was very nice! They were quick in performing in urinalysis and blood work then I only waited 5-7 minutes before the doctor came in. She was very kind and listened to all of my questions/worries.
It was fast. She answered my questions & was still nice & pleasant!
Nice clean office. This was my 1st time at this office. They took all the time I needed from front office to check out.
Dr Sudha is nice and professional.
Did not like the fact that they charge fees for follow-up visit for discussion on lab result.
Dr Challa was very nice and professional. I felt like I was given excellent care. The building was another story. I felt uncomfortable being there, and half way through my physical I noticed that the blinds were pulled up a few inches on the window giving people in the parking lot and the car that was right there a view of me in a gown and possibly more.
Overall I really enjoy Doctor Challa for my primary care because I usually get in and put in a timely manner. She is a friendly, familiar face!
Dr. Challa is so nice and personable. I feel comfortable with her and her staff is nice as well.
Very pleasant visit!
First time my mom visited . Great service and Dr was very helpful. She listened carefully and prescribed my mom accordingly. I will definitely recommend her.
It was great the staff was very nice as well.
Only wait time is the issue, everything is super
It was great
She is awesome! Very professional and understands the patient problem quickly.
Dr. Challa is magnificent. She is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend her as a physician.
Dr. Challa and her staff including Ivette, Daniella and Ms. Wilma all possess kindness, professionalism, time management skills, attentiveness. What really stood out about my visit was how helpful, patient and comforting Receptionist Ivette was while I was lost searching for their address which caused me to be late. For anyone who is visiting their office for the 1st time when using gps to get to their location at 4961 Buford Hwy NE Atlanta, GA 30341, make sure NE is input. Otherwise you'll end up in Norcross.
The entire staff I encountered with were extremely pleasant. IInitially brought my daughter in as a new patient, but I so amazed by the courteousness and professionalism, that set a same-day visit for myself. Dr. Challa is a very well-educated doctor who offers a variety of services. I am honored to have chosen her to care for my family.
My visit with Dr. Sudha Challa, MD is always pleasant and she always ask me questions and listen to whatever my complaints may be, if I have any, and tries to help.
Great experience and care every time im there
This visit was best primary care Doctor I've ever been too.
She's was great. The nurses were helpful and the receptionist at the front was super polite. The receptionist that I didn't catch the name of that was there on 12/3/2016 was unprofessional. She needs to keep her thoughts to herself. Because of her I will never come back to this place. The dr was great though.
Always nice treat you like family
She is Awesome, she saw that I was really sick, so she saw me first and took care of me right away.
Dr. Challa is excellent !! Every time we visit her whether it is for me, my wife or my daughter she is able to identify the root cause and provide appropriate medications. Most importantly she was able to identify and cure the issue which my wife was taking medications for a long time without any benefit. We are already recommending her to all our friends and colleagues.
it was very in lighting
She was very nice and so was her staff!
Doctor is good....wait time was so bad.my appointment was 11 am she was taken care of me after more than 1 hrs..I had been waiting in her room almost 45 min..But there stuff is good..Although i like Dr challa her behabior is good.she treats us very familier.
She was very nice, but very distracted. Her family were either visiting or just meeting her for lunch, and my appointment was right before her break. I know she was displeased that I was scheduled to see her so she tried to rush the appointment, though she was friendly. I went in for a physical but had none of the physical routine items done and only left with a prescription for BC (which I did ask for, but I also expected the physical provided it has been over a year since I've last had one)... She was very pleasant and I would recommend her, but just avoid an appt prior to lunch or closing just to be sure. Also, nothing on her but the practice was in a rather sketchy area to me and made me uncomfortable.
I was satisfied with my appointment! I love that they were able to see my on a Saturday; this surprised me as I was a new patient wanting a physical. The staff was very nice and I felt like I was seen in a suitable amount of time. They were even willing to print out my insurance's Biometric screening sheet that I wasn't able to print from home. The doctor was nice and did not seem to be in a hurry, which I appreciated. My only complaint was the facility and cleanliness. I never saw anyone wash their hands and the place just seemed unsterile. If they were to update the place a bit, put a few bottles of hand sanitizer out, and raise their standards a little, I would recommend them to everyone I know!
I would definitely come back. The doctor and nurse were very sweet and personable. It was a good first impression.
Great doctor! Great staff!
Great fast and competent service .
She is Young, patient and good listener..offered me options as to what I explained to her plus the staffs are wonderful..OMG this doc is super dope. She will be my family doc as from now on.
Extremely personable and understanding. Nearly fainted while blood was being drawn. She assisted me to lay down and offered some milk and sugar to give me some energy. Would definitely recommend to other clients!!
Always calming. Very courteous office staff
My visits with Dr Challa are always pleasant.
She gave me a full exam, no rush and answered all my questions. Great experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Always a great visit she loves her patients
I felt pretty rushed out of the door by Dr. Challa. She did diagnosed my illness right away, but when I had questions about other procedures I wanted to get done or general health questions, she responded by saying that we would get to that "at the next physical exam appointment" implying that I would just magically have time to reschedule another appointment for a few quick procedures. Additionally, I got the vibe that this was more of a community clinic rather than a primary care practice (not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just not used to it) and I'm looking for something more permanent. The area seems a bit sketchy too, so I think I'll stick to something a little closer to the city of Atlanta. Dr. Challa was very sweet, but just did not have much else to say other than a few words about my condition.
She was great, she saw how sick I was feeling and she told them to get my vitals right away, she sought the problem and wrote me a prescription and I was done, no lengthy wait time, I am going back!!
Dr. Challa is very nice and listened to everything that I was concerned about. She gave some good insight into the issues I am having and helped me feel better!
Nothing is worse than changing your doctor and then having regrets due to the cause of stress. It is apparent that she has more patients than she can handle. I went for an annual exam. Everyone was over all nice. The visit was brief. I mentioned to the doctor that I will need a prescription for my birth control pills but she forgot and after my visit, I walked out. Then I walked back in to remind her. I showed her the pills i take but somehow she managed to prescribe me the generic brand. For my blood test, she took me into a room where the lights were off and when she turned them on, the nurse who would be taking my blood was actually waking up from a nap in a chair. I left my urine sample in the restroom and it looks like they would have never tested it for pregnancy because i over heard her telling one of her employees that you have to test her, you should be testing all clients for pregnancy. The employees response was simply oh. I did not feel reassured at all. I left for a 4 day vacation where i lost my pills. I called the doctor's office 3 times hoping the doctor would send an emergency prescription to a nearby pharmacy. The front desk said we sent her the message but she never got back to me. I was stressed out. I tried to contact her on two more seperate occasions for other reasons. I even walked in one day. The front desk would tell me the same thing, we will send her the message but she never ever called me. Last but not least, they still billed me even though preventive care is covered under my insurance. I called my insurance company and they advised me that the medical billing department coded my visit wrong. This is an ongoing issue that I'm attempting to fix. I am never going back.
Efficiency and proficiency of Front Desk personnel needs improvement
She was very professional and welcoming.
The office staff is not the friendliest. However, Dr. Challa is an amazing Physician. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Very nice and helpful!
The front desk attendant was very nice and patient. The nurse was kind and friendly. The Doctor was sweet and patient and very professional. Did not like the new girl so much.
She can not give my daughter immunization. She told me, I need took her to health department to get the vaccine which her need today and get the certificate immunization record also.
She's very concise and is easy to be around.
Not very responsive for the medical records. There is a portal were a patient can login and find their documents or test results, but this portal is never updated. You have to keep calling to reach the doctor to upload or fax and you don't get the response timely.
always pleasant !!!
To have been there early and wait 30 mins, i can deal with, but to have come in because I did not feel well and to still not have been able to get the medication supposedly that was sent off to my nearest CVS is very upsetting. The doctor prescribed medicine that she stated I would be able to pick up now, I go to the CVS they have one but not the other prescription, i contact the doctor at that point they state they will call back with what is going on. They never call so i call back after an hr, at that point the receptionist states she'll contact me soon with more information on trying to get my medicine at CVS, she never does, i call back an hr later but it seems as though they are now closed...so i visited this doctor, paid my copay for a waste of time and no treatment. Highly dissatisfied.
She was very nice and attentive
Office staff was very attentive and friendly. I felt taken care of. Dr. Challah was timely and friendly. She helped me but did not waste my time. I appreciated the staff and the experience.
Dr. Challa was very attentive, her staff was very professional and courteous. She let me ask questions and answered
Dr Challa is polite, caring and complete. She takes the time to ask and listen and provides a high quality of care.
Loved my visit and the knowledge of Dr. Challa! She is very friendly and personable. Her and her staff are great! I'm glad I found this practice.
I believe it was a good visit. My issue is a very personal struggle and I'm often times embrassed to speak on it but Dr. Challa was patient and let me open up. I still felt kind of awkward but I appericated her concerns. The front receptionist was very personable and nice. I will be coming back and may make this office my PCD.
She is so amazing me and my teenager and young son goes to her and we just love her spirit and humbles. She is smart and funny and very concern about her patients. We drive over an hr just to see her.
Excellent care giver.
Excellent Amazing and Humble.
I am very happy with Dr. Sudha, but, the wait time is too long. There is no point of schedule an appointment and staff is taking too much of time to enter the details in the system though I checked online, but, I really liked doctor service.
Very friendly staff and the doctor was very attentive!
DR. Sudha Challa was very welcoming dr she has a nice personality she listen to what I have to say and also told me the symptom that I had actually had. makes a good eye to eye contact when she talking to you.
I don't understand why I'm asked to fill out zocdoc ahead of time and then am asked the identical questions in person. It's redundant.
She and the rest of the staff were great!
She was humble, friendly, and very professional I had chose her to be our family doctor and my daughter dermatologist.
Attentive and easy to talk to.
My visit today was a good one. Dr. Challah, wanted to know if I had any symptoms that's been going on. She also ask me, do I have any questions to ask her. Very pleasant to talk to! She answered my questions and had an immediate attention to my concerns!
I was satisfied with her care.
Awesome physician. Patient and a great listener. I felt very comfortable with her and she appeared confident which reassured me as a patient seeking a new doctor.
Dr. Challa is professional and very kin. She listens carefully to you and give honest answers!
She is nice doctor and her staff is also good.
Dr. Challa has a very calm and comforting presence!
The office has great people and Dr. Challa was very comfortable to be around.
If you have questions, ask Dr. Challa. She's great to sit down and answer any questions that I've had. She is a doctor with a schedule, so if you don't ask she can't answer a question she doesn't you have! A+ doctor w/A+ credentials.
very good visit
I love my doctor she is on point. Great personality
Dr. Challa is a very lovely person and you can talk to her. She's always pleasant. The staff is pleasant also.
Great Dr.... Great Service... Friendly and Fast
Always courteous clean friendly and knowledgeable. I will always come to Dr. Challa. Amazing woman
They did not receive the patient details in advance due to some internet issue, having to fill everything again.
Dr. Challa was awesome and her staff were very courteous. Doctor visits are dreadful but I will definitely be coming back. Facility is very clean and quiet. I loved it here.
I loved it!!! I was seen right away and Dr.Challa was extremely personable. That's definitely something that I am not used to.
She made me feel comfortable to tell her whatever was on my mind
Dr. Challa has very good intentions and is kind, but she is awkward with me and my son and doesn't communicate well. I had to wait 50 minutes after my appointment to time to be seen and I think I was one of the first patients taking of the day, this happens every time no matter what time I come. I always make sure to confirm my appointments.
She is very rude and arrogant. Also racist.
excellent. The staff was very professional and very helpful. The wait time was minimal.I am definitely making Dr Challa my primary care physician!
It wasn't what I thought it was. Some was very friendly and some looked at me like I was crazy. The nurse manager was awesome. Even when I got upset about my mom's death she tried to comfort me but the doctor looked at me like yeah ok. The doctor didn't ask any family questions. She sat down and said " why was I there". Well my information should've said " new patient visit".
Overall it was fast and got everything done that I needed.
First visit was today. She wasn't rushing around and spent time on me which I appreciated. I'm looking forward to my follow up.
If u visit the clinic they will provide you the apt message and they charge us upfront before even we could see the doc.but if u call for any clarifications or anything they try to force us to book an appointment.. They r not even ready to listen to us in phone. If anything book an appointment. That will be the response.
Dr Challa is very nice and listenesee very well to all concerns and addresses everything right away. When she's with you she's with you. Myou only issue with is I confirmed my appointment twice and still waited 40 minutes after my appointment to be seen by the doctor.
It was a very pleasant visit, and very fast!
Wait time was really long. It was more than 30 minutes, I had been waiting for. Doctor was good to talk, but not sure if she listened to me or was just nodding. I went to this doctor after reading all positive reviews, however, I am really disappointed because its been three weeks that I am following up for my reports. I never received.
Dr. Challa was very pleasant and listened to my concerns however, after telling her what my symptoms were, she didn't explain to me what the diagnosis could be. She just prescribed me some medications to take and to come back in a month.
I wasn't impressed with the depth of questioning re: underlying causes of rashes and injuries. She prescribed a steroid cream to termporarily get rid of them but the rashes have since returned.
Main reason I went to her was not something she could handle. She can just prescribe medicine with someone else's recommendation. To get the recommendation, she referred me to someone else and they didn't accept my or any insurance at all. Totally wasn't happy.
I came in for my annual physical. Checked in on the app, and was seen in minutes!! I haven't been to the doctor in forever, so I was nervous. She made me feel very comfortable, and answered every last question I had in detail (I admit, I asked a ton). Her staff was very nice as well. Especially the lady that put up with me and my fear of needles (forgot her name).
It was great! The wait was very short, and the staff (from the receptionist to the nurse to Dr. Challa) was very kind and courteous. I'm really happy with my visit.
She always takes her time and listens. Which is always sincerely appreciated.
My visit is good and also nice to meet her, and she will give suggestions and more and more..... Thank you for Dr.Sudha challa.
Great doctor. Listens. Very thorough and understanding.
Dr. Challa was professional but think of this more as an urgent care than a full family doctor experience.
She was very sweet and answered all of my questions without rushing. Great first impression! Office staff were also very friendly.
She was so nice and she made me feel comfortable. She is a great listener
She rush me through the appointment. Not coming back again!
I dnt no if I would return.
Overall, my daughter's visit with Dr. Challa went well, She was poised, professional and even a little personable. With my daughter still being a minor, this is the only part I wished was a tad better. The wait was a relatively long as well. When we came, there was no one available in the front office for a time. However, when they arrived, they were nice and focused on work. I am still going to keep Dr. Challa as my daughter's PCP. She knows her stuff!
Wanted more feedback as to why I had the follow up and it was not clear to me. So more details or feedback on my previous appointment would have been appreciated.
Great office love it
She is very patient.Explained everything.
Went in for a boil behind the ear. Got a shot and a prescription for antibiotics. Thought the boil should have been lanced.
She was nice but I've been trying for 3 days to get a prescription they supposedly put in.
Very personable. She listens and does not make you feel rushed.
Dr. Sudha Challa was very nice and polite. I was a new patient and she made me feel very comfortable and I felt she was genuinely concerned that she answered all of my questions.
My recent visit with Dr. Sudha was good, She listen to my problems and spend good time with no rushing or ugency to see other patients. The staff was friendly and I would definitely recommend to my friends and others.
great visit. No wait. Was able to get labs as well
Cares about what her patients want:) and the girls in the front are super fun to talk to and interact with!
Doctor Challa and those that work in her office are all very nice and I would recommend her for anyone!
She was very sweet. She informed me on everything she was doing.she's a great doctor I highly recommend
Dr. Challa and her staff was nice friendly and professional
Best family doctor I've been to. Knows her stuff and recommends good medicine.
She is an excellent Doctor. She takes good care of every patient.
Dr Chailla has a very warm and charming bedside manner and has real interest in my care and needs. The office environment and staff are All very pleasant. and professional. I hate going to the doctor but I love this office environment
She was excellent!
She was very knowledgeable, and gentle. Overall very good experience.
Very nice.Great energy about here. She really cares.very genuine
Had a pleasant experience. Doctor answered all my questions in detail. Very knowledgeable and caring person. Office is well maintained and staff are pretty organized.
Dr. Challa and her staff are so great. I was able to get a same-day appointment, and checking in/out was quick and easy. All of the staff are really sweet and friendly, but they didn't pressure me to make small talk. The nurse I had was very accommodating and never made my requests feel like an inconvenience. Dr. Challa herself was very kind and knowledgeable. I was super nervous, and she went out of her way to address my concerns and reassure me. She has a very relaxing and friendly demeanor and seems to really care about her patients' well-being. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Challa to anyone, but especially people who are nervous about going to the doctor. I will definitely be going back.
Dr. Sudha is very polite and soft with patients. She is very knowledgable and determines the problem correctly.
Very intelligent Physician. Great bedside manner. Highly recommended.
She always cares. Ive had 3 office visits so far. My experience has been consist. Dr. Challa is very knowledgeable of my health conncerns. She smiles at me with all if her body language if that makes sense. Dr. Challas staff all appear happy, kind and sincere. The check in/out process is the easiest I've ever experienced. I'm recommending her to my mother, friends and my coworkers.
Dr Challa actually took the time to sit down and listen to me explain my symptoms. She took the time to answer my questions and explain what she prescribing me. The front desk staff is very nice. I would highly recommend her!
She did not spend too much time with the patient. She was rushing to prescribe medicine and get me out of the room.
Dr. Sudha Challa is great! She is very attentive, passionate and knowledgable. it was my first time here and I will definitely use her as my primary physician.
She is great
She is an amazing and heartfelt Doctor. She really listens to her patients, and she is very knowledgeable of a plethora of ailments.
Dr. Challa was very pleasant, patient, and knowledgeable! She explained all my procedures for my visit and walked thru step by step as she perforemed each service. She was very nice and has great bed side manners. I would definitely recommend her and she has Saturday apppoints, which is very convenient.
my visits with Dr. Sudha Challa, MD is always pleasant; from the time I visited her office. She is a beautiful person.
Very professional. listens patiently to everything a patient has to say. Very much recommended.
She was thorough and very nice
I really enjoyed my visit. She has a wide range of illnesses that she treats. I was only planing on. Visiting her one time as a fill in when my regular doctor was away on vacation. I have decided to make her my primary doctor. Great experience and fast service
Very professional, clean office and excellent service
Excelente, muy amables, tanto la Doctora como todo su equipo de trabajo; no tenía con quién dejar mis niños y me permitieron llevarlos y me colaboraron con ellos, de tal forma que no me sentí sola.
Trouble getting responses from Dr. Challa and her staff regarding a prescription refill,
Very informative! Helps me understand my health and the steps I need to take to become healthier.
She's excellent and had very good bedside manners.
Was a family doctor but zocdoc had her as a dermatologist but guess she does it all.Great experience though
only 1st short Dr visit
my appointment was for 12:15 and i arrived early. i did not get out until 1:30. i think it was overbooked but she accepts walk-ins. i guess she is a good doctor because people were still coming when i left. i did not feel that she understood what i needed. nice lady
Went in because I was sick. Doctor barely listened to my symptoms and looked at my mouth for two seconds before diagnosing my disease. She then just said she would send in a prescription without telling me what I have and what it can treat it. She didn't look at me when I attempted to ask questions and answered with one word answers which really concerned me. And I ended up having to ask my pharmisist everything about my medicine and sickness.
Very informative, listens and understands the patients needs. You don't waste time here. You get in and out. Great staff also.
She is very experienced with skin issues! I thought was suffering from spider bites when I actually had staph. I'm grateful to have gone to her.
I made a same day appointment and I was greeted right away by the girl at the front desk (the one with the pretty nails lol). I was seen very quickly. Karen the medical assistant was very thorough and friendly. My favorite part of the appointment though was Dr. Challa. She greeted me in the hallway in passing before I even knew who she was. Once I met the doctor, she had sincere interest in my health concerns. She made eye contact with me the whole appointment unlike other doctors. She made relevant suggestions and prescriptions that fit my problem and my budget. She shook my hand hello and goodbye. She even offered to bring a water bottle for me. I felt heard and respected by Dr.Challa. Thank you! I will return.
She's so kind and down to earth. I felt very relaxed in her clinic. Her staff members are all so sweet! I'm glad I chose her to be my new primary care doctor. She was so helpful and attentive. I highly recommend her! Her clinic is a little far from my house, but she's well worth the drive!
felt secure. staff is great...
she was very patient and friendly. She answered all my questions and did not rush thru the process.
Very sweet.. not much care. I came because i was having stomach cramps and assumed it might be the birth control... We removed the birth control and nothing was said or done for the pain in my stomach. I am still having these cramps. In addition I had blood work done and I haven't heard from the doctor with any of my results.
She is professional and simple. Very friendly receiving.
She is very nice & friendly. Having good Diagnosis skills.
Is quick services and good
She's a great doctor
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Challa. Waiting time was a little long I thought, but after being seen it was worth the wait. Dr. Challa was very easy to talk to and listened to my every concern and question. She was very informative. I felt very comfortable with her and her practice. The place was neat and clean. The staff was very friendly. I will definitely be back for more visits if needed!
I am putting this waiting time down to a fluke. All the other times I went to Dr. Challa, I waited about 15 minutes. Other then today's long time waiting, I find Dr. Challa and her staff excellent.
I am impressed visiting Dr Sudha Challa, She did my physical satisfactorily and guided me nicely about my health insurance Coverages.
Great Dr. Wish I would of knew of her a lot earlier in my life... I will be definitely seeing her for all my needs in the near future!!!
Dr Sudha Challa is a very knowledgeable doctor. She is easy to talk to, reassuring and friendly. I highly recommend her, she is definitely one of the best doctors.
Great staff. Excellent doctor. I am very satisfied with my visit every single time.
Dr. Challa, is very attentive. She discussed all of my concerns for me and my family. She is very easy to talk to.
Very polite and efficient. Even called to make sure I was feeling better a few days later.
I like her she listens to what you have to say and explains things so you understand. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a doctor
She never asked me questions related to the medical problems I have. I brought medical records with me, but she didn't look at them. She did a physical exam and prescribed pain medication and therapy for my meducation issue..
She was very sweet and did not keep me waiting. The staff was very friendly!
Very friendly pleasant atmosphere! Doctor very professional and informative.
She did not listen to my problems nor take them into consideration. After about 8 serious issues I told her I was having, she just listen and told me to drink water for a week and come back. I was so disppointed and confused. I went to another doctor and they had a totally different opinion and in which I need more care than drinking water.
Very short wait time and the DR is very nice.
As Always, very thorough, and very personable.
I had an appointment at 3,arrived at 2:30 and was out by 3. She was sweet and absolutely fantastic!
She is not much attentive to the patients.Just gives answers to the questions we ask her in 1-2 words. I never has this kind of experience with previous doctors(All of them used to asked me about my health and involved me in the conversation). Also had a bad experience with the billing department.I had annual physical health checkup with them which is covered for free by my insurance. But Lab-corp(third party who will verify the tests) have charged me for some medical test which should be covered for free. I called them many times regarding this but they were least bothered and finally i had to pay from my pocket to Lab-corp. I will never recommend this doctor to anyone.
She was both personable and informative. There was little wait time between my arrival and me seeing the Doctor. I would recommend to others in the area.
I was not satisfied...
I did not care too much for my visit. Doctor Challa was OK, but I probably will go to another doctor from now on. She did not provide much information unless you kept on asking. I would much prefer the doctors who explain my questions in more details. Both her and the staff here gave me the feeling like they didn't wanna discuss my problem much. I felt that I was more comfortable discussing my problem than them. It almost felt that they were embarrassed to discuss things, which was just unprofessional. The front desk lady asked what I came here for in front of everybody in the waiting room, while I specifically indicated everything when I made my appointment. The whole visit was just uncomfortable. I do not recommend this office.
Great people skills, and fast staff. Dr Challa, treats patients respect a meets all the needs of the patient. The Dr listens that's the most important thing.
My visit with Sudha Challa, MD was helpful and informative. She was able to take my appointment as a walk-in and treat me with out any hurried pressure. Office staff was polite and professional as well. Aside from feeling ill (which was the point of the visit) I was pleasantly impressed.
Dr Challa and staff were wonderful. my only complaint was that the bathroom was dirty, and there were multiple urine samples sitting uncovered in the specimen area.
Dr. Sudha Challa is really a great physician, friendly and make me feel very comfortable to visit her. She is an example of what a doctor should be. Would highly recommend...
My visit was good
I really enjoy seeing the doctor, she knows her stuff and you don't just feel like a number it seems she qenuinely cares. This place is a one stop shop as they offer many services outside of just your typical primary care facility!!
My visit at doctor's Challa was excellent with follow-ups and she gave me a very good evaluation on my test results.She cares about her patients.
I was not impressed. First when I got there the receptionist asked me what the purpose of my visit is and why I needed to see the doctor which I found quite offensive especially considering there were other patients in the waiting area. Then I waited over an hour before the doctor came to se me who was not friendly at all. didn't do a routine check beyond what I said was wrong with me and didn't even bother to ask how I was when she walked in.
Visit was good lot of trouble getting your prescription's ordered and refilled lots of confusion in front office
She was very nice and sincere. She listened and gave me hope that she cared about my mental and physical health. Eager to be on board with Dr. Challa who is highly recommended on Zoc Doc and excepts Medicaid. Grateful!!
While making the appointment over the phone, I specifically asked if I could get implantable birth control. I was lied to. After completing labs and a general check up, the doctor then says, "Oh we do not carry that here at the office. You will have to go back to your pharmacy, pick it up, and then make another appointment in 3-4 weeks". This would be okay (though still annoying) except for the fact that this was the whole point of my appointment AND SHE NEVER SENT THE PRESCRIPTION. Adding to that, I just found out weeks later that they filed my insurance company incorrectly, sent my labs to a company that my insurance won't cover (because it was filed wrong), and I am now being hit with an unexpected bill that I have received after the bill's "due date". All of this hassle for an appointment where I was not even able to get what I was going in for! Stay away.
She gave me exactly what I need after I had to visit three other doctors prior.
The visit went well! I was unable to pay with a debit card for this visit. I had to go down the street and atm the cash for the payment. Had I known, I would have been prepared. Otherwise, The staff was very attentive and helpful!
Dr. Challa is Always The Same, Very Personable, and Concerned With Her Clients Well Being.
I thought the visit was pretty good. I had to reschedule three times that day. The doctor seem very nice but I felt pretty rushed. But besides that it was an okay visit. The nurses were extremely sweet. Especially Brittany. She has a bubbly personality and she made me feel very comfortable :) Thanks Brittany. The phlebotomist was awesome as well. It was nice and smooth he stuck me and I didn't even feel it. He was very informative and he had me laughing.
If you're an aging woman looking to regain your youth or an overweight person with money to burn in weight loss, she's great, otherwise, you're wasting your time.
It was great. She seemed very knowledgable and I would recommebd her to every one. There was no wait at all.
She was very nice, but the facility was disgusting and unorganized. When I was in the waiting room I saw a cockroach crawl through the hallway. I was tempted to leave
It took a bit to get in and paperwork was long, but I get that. There is only one doctor available, I did not see any PAs or Nurse Practitioners sharing the load. During the entry interview, it appeared as if the medical assistant did not read the paperwork and history, which me quite a while to fill out. She was asking questions that were right there for her to see. Another thing that I found odd was that, while there were other patients around, the door was kept open, which made it difficult to discuss private medical information with comfort. Once in the examination room, I had to wait a bit longer. Also understandable. But I noticed that the walls appear to be a little too thin. I could hear the discussion in the adjacent room. I suggest using something like The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System, this may help keeping private conversation private. The Dr. was very pleasant and to the point. She listened and gave me what I needed, after which I was out in a second.
She is a very nice person and seems to care for her patients
I arrived at 10:50 for an 11 AM appointment for a school physical and lab work. I even spoke to the office at 9am to confirm we could do it all at the appointment. At 1130am, I asked how much longer it would be. I was told just a moment. At 11:40, they put me in a room and got basic patient info, ie: blood pressure. At 12:10, there's still no sign of the doctor so I got up to leave because an hour and twenty minute wait time is the poorest customer service ever. The doctor took me when she saw me leaving and said they were running late but regardless, they should've turned down the late patients if it put them that behind. Staff is nice but I will not be returning.
Do not go there ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1. They do not know how to verity your insurance. 2. They do not talk to you till you pay copay 3. I left messages by phone 9 times in 3 days for dr Challa, She never called me back till i got there myself. They do not care of you, they do care of your money!!!!!!!!
Very quick visit lacking communication with the patient.
Dr. Challa is great! Very attentive and knowledgable on a range of issues - I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable doctor
Waiting about 1.5 hours until I finally saw Dr. Challa. While she was apologetic, she seemed to rush through my annual physical (was over in less than 5 minutes). Facilities are also fairly bare bones - would find another place to go to next time
Waiting was painful.
Very helpful, friendly and professional staff. Appointment was quick and straight forward.
Dr. Challa is very personable and has great bedside manners. She's kind and truly cares about her patients. I will use her as my new PCP.
Correct and professional
it was my first time there but I was there 15 min prior to my appointment but I had to wait more than 45 to be called into room. Too long of a wait...it's not a hospital to be waiting this long. I did like the doctor but her staff were monotone and made you feel like you were being interrogated. . It felt like I was not welcomed.
Que me gusto el trato que me dieron tienen un personal muy atento .
She was really nice and she attended my needs right away. Everyone showed respect and showed how much they cared about my health and that felt good.
The entire staff was phenomenal. Felt right at home!!
It was great!
She is really pleasant and efficient! Front desk attendant wasn't too friendly though:-(
She was best doctor I've seen ever was very nice made me feel important and that I mattered if u are looking for primary care doctor
I usually see dr challa by appointment & am seen quickly. This time I went in as a walk in and was seen just as quickly. In addition to this the doctor and staff is really nice.
I thought Dr. Was highly skilled and competent.
straightforward and helpful, cant wait to start the weight loss :)
Dr. Challa, is A Jewel!! I wish she was An ObGyn Dr. She is the best!!!
The staff is so friendly and efficient here. It is the best doctor's office experience. Dr.Challa is very calm and helpful, she always helps the situation and cares about your overall health.
Dr. Challah was great. Very personable and attentive.
Love love LOVE her.
it was a great experience
She was friendly and professional. I will be going back soon for a physical
I was seen within 15 minutes of my appointment. I went for my annual physical and pap. Dr. Challa was very nice, and I never felt uncomfortable during my pap. No complaints other than I felt a little bit rushed, I understand that they may have been a little busier that day.
A nice doctor with a good professional manner.
Professional and efficient. Certainly will take my daughter again.
Everybody was very polite and professional. This was my first visit but not my last. This is the first doctor office I visited where everybody kept a smile on their faces which made me feel very comfortable. I will recommend this doctor to all my co-workers and friends. A job well done. Thanks
Dr Sudha Challa is young but competent. She listings to the patient before taking any decision, and this is a good thing. In one word she is professional.
Entire office staff was courteous, caring, and professional. So glad I made the switch!
If you want a doctor that cares, go see Sudha Challa, she is excellent!
Dr. Challa did not seem at all interested in my symptoms or that I have had them for 2.5 weeks. I felt she brushed me off as having just a "virus" and her attitude did not convey any concern or care. Her nurse and receptionist were both very friendly and accommodating. I will not be returning.
Very patient and understanding with my concerns. Felt very comfortable.
My visit with dr.sudha was very helpful and informative
The staff was very courteous and helpful. Doctor Challa was very knowledgeable and able to guide me thru to the next steps that needed to be taken.
Everyone was was super nice and helpful!
I was impressed with her professionalism. She was relatable and nice. I would recommend her to anyone. She took her time to explain information to me. That was very important to me. I believe I have found my primary care physician. I have been looking for years and did not like anyone until now.
She is an excellent doctor. She knows her job and very friendly.
I did not like Dr. Challa. I saw her because I was getting a lot of colds and worried that something might have been seriously wrong. She just assumed I wanted meds for my cold symptoms and ignored these concerns. My entire visit with her could not have lasted more than a minute and a half. I was flabbergasted that the appointment was really over when she left the room. She asked maybe two questions and prescribed me three different meds (including an antibiotic) with absolutely no instructions. She did not even tell me which medications she was prescribing, I had to ask my pharmacist upon pick up. One of the scripts was for a prescription-only cough medication, despite me not even suffering a cough. This is something I would have told her had she given me the chance. I went to this doctor because the reviews seemed to indicate she really listens. I will not be returning as I found her to be dismissive of my concerns as a patient.
Fast professional, informative on less expensive generic medication. She seems to really care about her patients, and listens. Great office staff too.
My problem has been treated but I really didn't like the office staff. I had issues with my appointment timing. I had a lot of wait time. My reports were supposed to be sent to the ortal wich they set up for me which never showed up. Called the doctors office many times to get them mailed to my address which never happened even after trying a lot. I had to finally go in person to collect the reports. The doc tried to sell some cosmetic products even that is not the reason why I went to her.
Excellent, very professional, kind, and thorough.
Dr. Challa was very pleasant but the reason I booked an appointment was to receive my annual and to get fertility advice. The office made me feel like I was at a health department or free clinic and I do not see myself ever going back. I have insurance but yet I still keep receiving bills for that I paid. My concern was hot flashes because at the time I was 28 but all she said was I was fine! At the end of my appointment I asked what about getting pregnant and speaking with my fiancee but she said she would do a follow up but never did. I am now searching for another OB/GYN thru Northside Hospital because they provide the best care for babies since I am planning my first pregnancy!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable doctor. Very friendly staff. Convenient and affordable.
Dr. Challa was very attentive, and listened to all I had to say before deciding how best to help. She is a great doctor!
I Love the doctor, but the administrative aspect of the office is a bit disorganized and it takes too long to see the doctor at times.
She's great. Very knowledgeable and she listens to your problems.
I enjoyed my visit , Dr. Challa really took her time to listen to my problems and come up with a solution we both agreed upon. Highly recommend.
It was very pleasant. She asked many questions concerning my health and was very thorough regarding my check-up.
Dr Challa was outstanding and knowledgeable. The office was spacious and very clean and wheelchair friendly. Dr even noticed that I had high blood pressure and got me on meds right away. Great doctor that listen and didn't waste time.
She was an excellent doctor. She was patient, understanding, kind and very knowledgeable and helpful!! I'd recommend DR. Sudah Challa, MD to anyone, anytime.
The visit was organized. The staff was extremely helpful. Dr. Challa was informative and gave me the time I needed. I did not feel rushed. The guidance and advice given to me made me feel safe in her hands. She also looked at a plan to help improve my health and keep me health. I was sincerely satisfied with my visit.
doctor is good and very kind and knowledgeable. Explained things in detail.
She is an amazing doctor who really cares about her patients.
incomplete physical examination
I LOVE her she is SO nice! And she listens to what you're concerned about. And finds a solution.
She was very informative and pleasant.
Very professional, very caring, very understanding, wasn't judgemental about my health and how I was feeling such as my pain and what I take for my pain so in other words I love and like to Dr. Challa as my doctor
Extremely nice and professional! I felt extremely comfortable and peaceful with her!
I loved my visit! Dr. Challa listened to what I had to say. Took my concerns seriously. Very pleased with my visit. Staff and Dr.. They were all friendly, welcoming, and professional.
She knows what she's doing, and seems like a Dr. who really cares. who could ask for more?
Simple physical exam was so complicated,I never received follow up information for my visit they incorrectly charged me at the front desk. Never again! Dr. Challa is nice but not very informative.
Dr. Challa is awesome!!! I was able to get an appointment for the same day. I called the office a few days later to speak with the doctor. Usually, when you call a doctor, you speak to the nurse. However, to my surprise I actually spoke with Dr. Challa!!
I would definitely recommend Dr. Challa, She was very professional, and personable, as well as extremely attentive to my needs, and concerns about my health issues, and questions. I have made her my Primary care Doctor.
Very helpful and professional
Did not feel as though she was not listening, to what I was telling her,and brushed my concerns off . Will not make another appointment with this doctor.
Very professional and easy going. She will be my primary doctor.
I love Dr Challa, she always listens and observes as well. Whenever I visit she gives me her attention
Fast informative friendly
shes now my primary care doctor and shes does an awesome job, im proud to call her my doctor and a great one she is....
She gave me test for things I didnt need just to charge my insurance. Please please find you another doctor if your reading this.
I was very Comfortable
Excellent service.she was caring and very helpful.
Fantastic. I had to bring my baby with me, and she along with the other nurses were so sweet, patient, and accommodating. Very knowledgeable and comforting. Office is spacious and well-kept. I am so pleased!
It went very well. Dr. Challa was very attentive to my needs & I greatly appreciate it. I would definitely return to her office for a future appointment.
