Review of Dr. Manchikalapati

-

Worst PCP. She messed up my wife's health. She didn't properly diagnose a cyst and said its just due to indigestion. The cyst over time grew so big upto 7 lbs. But still she didn't prescribe any ultrasound or CT scan. Finally one day when my wife was feeling uncomfortable we had to go to the urgent care and then they told us about the cyst and we had to rush to a specialist to get it removed. She lost both her ovaries and we cannot have our own kids. We really want someone to take strict action on her. We consulted the attorneys but they weren't helpful either. I wish there is some attorney out that can help us take action on her lousy practice. She once read the lab reports wrong and said everything is normal when the hemoglobin was abnormally low. We had to show the report again to her to clarify.

Review of Dr. Spannring

-

I always looked forward to meeting with Dr. Spannring. She was crucial in helping me out of a rut and to better understand myself. She was very professional, yet personable and very insightful. I don't think I'd be where I am today if it was not for her guidance. I only stopped working with her because I moved.

Review of Dr. Qamar

-

As I am a former healthcare professional, I can truly say that she should not have a medical license. She tried to dictate my disabilities of 28 years, 2 of which are autoimmune diseases, one deadly! I'm 99% homebound, but she indicated that it's all minuscule! She never sent my Rx to the pharmacy either! STAY AWAY!

Review of Dr. Manchikalapati

- in Worcester, MA |

Aloof & condescending, more of a stone wall than a caregiver. Once of many times I tried to address severe spine pain, she said I should try vipassana. It's a type of meditation I practiced for years. I said so; she took my pen and notebook and spelled out the word. I later learned I had bone spurs and herniated discs. Also: there were some major cultural differences around sexual health, and I hope she’s had better training since then. Go elsewhere. She can’t or won’t help you.

Review of Dr. Manchikalapati

-New York, NY |

2014 - I needed a Pap, worked at UMass, and wanted an ASAP visit with the first available dr. Saw Dr Manchikalapati. I have a lot of pelvic pain at the vaginal opening, which was undiagnosed then. I feared pelvic exams. I tensed up on the table and she couldn't find my cervix. Instead of noticing that I was grimacing with pain and sweating through the gown, she said, "Relax! I cant see your cervix when you do that." I am now a Certified Nurse-Midwife, and I've never spoken to a patient this way.

Review of Dr. Manchikalapati

-Worcester, MA |

Stopped me as I was telling her my health issues to say: " In only have 40 minutes to finish this visit including paperwork on comp so I can only attend to 3-4 issues. If you have more issues, you need to schedule another appointment ". I could not believe it! She's been my doctor for about 6 years... how could she be so rude and uninterested in her patients' well being? Total Shocker!. Definately changing doctors. Please don't chose as your primary dr. You'll regret it! So much time wasted!

Review of Dr. Eypper

I am 69 years old and have had several Doctors (GPs) over the years. Dr. Eypper is dedicated, thorough, open minded and informative. By far the best doctor I have ever had.
