She is amazing. I had to relocate to a different state, but she sets the bar HIGH when it comes to a physician's standard. Dr K addressed all of my needs, her staff is wonderful and she always saw me within10 minutes of my appointment time--if not right away. She is fantastic, straight to the point and will take care of all of your needs. I HIGHLY recommend she and her team.

Dr. Kodiyalam was very professional, thorough, warm and easy to talk to. She seems to take a natural and and holistic approach (i.e. inquiring about diet, food allergies, lifestyle) which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend her. The office staff also seemed friendly and professional.

Dr. Kodiyalams office is the doctor's office I have been searching for. I was seen within 10 minutes of walking in the door and was greeted by a courteous, professional and knowledgeable staff. This office is very no-nonsense, I was treatedfor exactly what I needed and they got me in and out as fast as possible. As a teacher who is always on the run, I was so appreciative of how they valued my time and tended to all of my medical needs.

Dr Uthra was very thorough. She reviewed blood work that another doctor failed to review from an appointment in May. She was also interested in my daily upkeep in which she gave me helpful natural remedies as well. I am definitely making her my primary physician.

I accidentally came on the wrong day and they could have easily turned me away and made me come back for my actual appointment day but they fit me into her schedule. She is very kind, explains things thoroughly and doesnot question the patient. I really appreciate that. She does not have that typical doctor "attitude"--- I feel like she enjoys her job and she actually became a doctor to help people.

Dr, Kodiyalam is very professional and really explains information very well. Often times I find that Drs prescribe medications without fully explaining how and why the medicines help in layman's terms. This wasn't the case with Dr. Kodiyalam.

She listened pretty carefully and tried to break down the info I was giving her in a professional way. This was my first visit to a doctor in two years. I don't even have a primary care doctor. I have togo back next week to do blood work and see what she has to say. I don't like going to doctor's but I am hoping this would change. She seemed caring.
