Review of Dr. Rajpal


I have kidney issues and my PCP sent me to Dr. Rajpal for treatment. With his care I have regained some of my kidney function. My kidneys were actually damaged by an enlarged prostate gland that had backed up my bladder and caused the damage. Surgery corrected that problem and Dr. Rajpal's care has helped regain some function. GREAT DOCTOR!!!!!!!!

Review of Dr. Malladi

DR. Malladi is a caring doctor and very thourough. Expect to wait beyond your appointment; especially at the Tempe location. It has been worth the wait. I had another nephrologist before seeing Dr. Malladi. The difference is night and day. Barbara P

Review of Dr. Mendonca

- in Chandler, AZ |

Hospital visit necessitated his presence. Very glad to have him now as my permanent nephrology Specialist. Every Type 1 diabetic should have one. This gentleman has excellent temperament, knowledge, and administration. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Review of Dr. Nair

- in Mesa, AZ |

Dr Nair did not even want to listen to my concerns, review labs/treatments from other Doctors with my condition/illness, when I would ask him questions he told me every time that I have access to Google and the Internet so I just need to research it myself. And why did I pay money to come in and see you?

Review of Dr. Mehra

- in Mesa, AZ |

This was my third and last visit to this place. The wait times are incredibly long. The doctors do not communicate with the patients. I do not feel confident with any of the Doctors I have had contact with ..
