I have been seeing Dr Vellanki for a year. She knows what she’s talking about! I trust her completely. She is not the first Rheumatologist that I have seen, so I do have something valid to go on. She listens, answered every question I’ve ever asked, she is concerned and very respectful!

Avita screwed up my appt with the doctor next door and Dr Adkins said he would see me instead which I was grateful to get in that day. Overall I did not have any problems with him and I think he is ok. I left the practice though because my doctor next door can never get me in for a appointment.

My father recently passed under the direction of Dr. ElHachem's care. He is the most compassionate doctor I have every seen and allowed my father to depart this world in dignity. Thank you

Review for Dr. Elhachem

Terrible, terrible, terrible physician. Lack of bedside manner may be excused when you’re actually a good physician, but, when you don’t know (or care about) what you’re doing and you’re a jerk, there are no excuses. Stay away from this “physician”.

He has almost killed two of my relatives. One he severely over-medicated and ended up in a coma. The other he never did a common test and prescribed the wrong meds for months. She ended up in the hospital over a simple UTI.

Review for Dr. Adkins

Unprofessional and immature. "Dr." Wolfe thinks its ok to make negative comments about other doctors to his patients. He also thinks he needs to give a rebuttal to negative reviews of himself. Immature.
