Professional but not at all cold. Dr Arekapudi strikes the perfect balance of friendly, candid, and informative. Also, hands-down best wall art I've ever seen in an exam room. No posters, just an elegant abstract (actual) painting.

I had several issues with the office staff. For my first appointment the office called to reschedule for later in the week, and scheduled on her second office (all the way out in wicker park) without telling me. I had tocall and get clarification when I saw the office address was different. There also was an instance when the office called me to inform me that my insurance would not be covering a prescription (it was covered) and I would need to pay the full cost. I tried calling back twice and left messages but no one returned my call. Dr Arekapurdi herself is fine, but I had such a bad experience with the office that I will not be going back.

I had called the office a few days before my appointment to let them know that I was in a rush. I didn't know I was speaking to the doctor herself because the person on the other side of the linewas so patient. Today when I went to my appointment, the doctor remembered that I was in a rush and saw me almost immediately. I was also quite impressed by her thoroughness and attentiveness. Would definitely recommend.
