Dr. Challa is a wonderful physician. I have been a patient for 6 years now. I was diagnosed with diabetes and chose her as my primary due to location in my neighborhood. I came to her with blood sugar level of13.0 and she prescribed 2 medication pills just short of insulin. Currently taking one medication pill, have a level of 5.9, and will be off ALL medication by the end of this year. It was her patient education, encouragement on each visit and scheduled me to see a nutrition expert in her office at no additional cost to me. It has changed my life and I am healed!

I have always had a pleasant visit with Dr. Challa. I read reviews before I made my first visit. Some good...some not so good. I needed a doctor that day. It's not a fancy office at all. You might wonder ifyou made a mistake! I found Dr. Challa to be quite pleasant. She seems very quiet. I didn't think she was listening to me. But at the end of the visit, she heard everything! She is just reserved. She has been a blessing to me and my kids. If she is not able to help you, she sends you to someone who can. It is SO much easier to make an appointment with her than go into a walk in clinic. I feel free to call the office and ask questions. I also think the office staff is wonderful, helpful and caring. If you need a primary care doctor, I recommend Dr. Challa. The more you get to know her, the more you like her. I'm trying to think of all the helpful info.... If you think you can go to Dr. Challa for ADD meds or for pain pills...think twice. She will make sure you have gone through all the necessary channels and require records. I liked this about Dr. Challa. On the other hand, if you are going on a long trip or out of the country, she will help you get all the legal prescriptions you need. I am 59 years old. I am a native of Atlanta. I've known all the best doctors....they are retired! Dr. Challa is just a good all around doctor. That good old family doctor.

Overall my visit went okay. The receptionists and nurses are all extremely nice. The doctor did seem a bit timid but I think that was due to me being a black male patient under the age of 30. Other than thatand the dated facilities the visit went well. I don’t visit the doctor often so I’m sure I’ll be back again next year for my yearly.

The office has a nice flowto it. Dr. Challa knows I question everything, so she is always prepared for me LOL. She is knowledgeable in many areas.
