I just left my meeting with Dr. Reddy. So many positives...1. She was honest with me about my dosage and about the issues it can cause long term 2. She acknowledged when I said certain things about my past experiences and she made eye contact and expressed actual human emotions to me 3. She wasn't afraid to tell me the truth about managing my ADHD in a healthy way for my heart and didn't focus only on blindly treating the ADHD 4. Her staff was very friendly. The only worry I had was a mention of birth control bc of my medication, Bc it seemed a little like I was doing something wrong... but I realize that she intended it more as a heads up rather than as a judgment. I am on my dosage Bc my dr. prescribed it, and obviously Dr. Reddy knows that. I really liked Dr. Reddy and her honest approach and I am truly greatful for the medical expertise she gave me and the advice she gave regarding a lateral issue on trauma. I will be heeding that advice and I'm looking forward to working with Dr. Reddy in the future.

Dr. Reddy asked the right questions and got right to the point. She is not a therapist and makes it clear what her role is as your doctor. She asked me my opinion of a med plan, but also made her suggestion.

Dr. Reddy has a very gentle manner and was very prompt in seeing me. She works in the evening which is very convenient for me. She asked lots of good questions and was non-judgmental. She is a psychiatrist rather than a therapist so her questions will be directed toward how your medication is working and whether it is the appropriate dosage or medication for you.

In this case, please read and do not take negative reviews lightly. I have been seeing Dr. reddy for about ten months. She has been a pleasant doctor until I had an appalling, and deeply upsetting experience. Dr. reddy gave me a prescription for one of my meds with no dosage written on the slip, I did not realize this until the pharmacy gave me a bottle of this medication but in the wrong dosage and in a different for (extended vs immediate release). No problem, I thought, I just let them know and they will fix it as it is very unorthodox for a psychiatrist to change a dosage without discussing it with a patient first. Apparently she told the pharmacist she had intended to change the dosage, which surprised me and I asked if they could double check.after they did they told me I would have to speak with her, so I called and tried to get in touch with her and left a message with her answering service. I did not hear back from her within 24 hours, and, as I take brain medications seriously and was concerned this mix up would have a negative effect, I called and left another because I had already been taking the wrong dosage for a few days by then and wanted to address it promptly. I then received a phone call from doctor reddy in which she told me she could not talk as soon as I began to explain why I was getting in touch with her (interrupting me) and proceeded to spend three minutes chastising me for calling her, saying "you are in a crisis every week" (I have never called her with a crisis, or at all prior to this incident) "you need wraparound care" and telling me all these phone calls were wasting her time while she is at a conference in California, that if I cannot be flexible with her I should go to another doctor and pay out of pocket insinuating that she is the only provider who would take my insurance. She also said when they called her she did not have my chart in front of her (which explains the error). I don't think any physician should be informing pharmacists off the top of their head. Not only was I ignored, but she did not acknowledge her error and spoke to me in a very condescending tone with insinuations that I need a higher level of care just because I dared to want the correct dosage of my medication. This was all due to her mistake and she blamed me for it. This was very upsetting to me and reflects abysmal bedside manner. Frankly I was surprised to be treated this way. I recommend that anyone who tries to build a relationship with this doctor proceed with caution. I will be finding another psychiatrist.

Just wanted to get me in and out of there. Did not feel that she wanted to take the time to truly get to know me - just asked a slew of 50 questions, jotted notes, and pushed me out without any action plan. I do not recommend and will not be returning.

Asked me a bunch of questions, told me she couldn't diagnose my problem, that I need to go see a psychologist and take an ADHD test which may or may not be covered by insurance before she could discuss things any further. Which begs the question why even bother with going to see her in the first place. I understand that there are certain guidelines one must follow, but this is just dumb. Im a 30 year old male with a stable life and a small problem, not a tweaked out depressed teenager bordering on suicide that needs a team of professionals for help. I expect someone of respectable profession to work with me, offer me various treatment options, explaining which one does what, and then test one out and see it works. What I don't expect is her to tell me to go see someone else and then come back to her.

I have been seeing Dr. Reddy for more than 6 months. I suffer from depression and I was not responding to medication at the time. After seeing Dr. Reddy she changed the dosage and added a medication. This combination has helped me improve greatly. Also she is a caring doctor who takes her time to get to the root of the problem. In terms of location, it is located in an office building with plenty of parking space. Sterling is far for many of us who live closer to DC, but it's a small sacrifice to make compared to what we would have to spend seeing another doctor who would most likely not accept health insurance. Dr. Reddy also offers evening and Saturday appointments, which is very convenient for busy professionals. I highly recommend her!
