What People Say About Dr. Arun Movva, MD

I went just once and would never go back. He was dismissive and insulting and appeared to expect some sort of obeisance that was not earned and was not forthcoming. I would love to be able to give negative points for listening and the likelihood that I would refer a friend or family member.

In one word, arrogant. Do as he says, don't have a mind of your own and want to rely on labs only he is your guy. I have hyPERthyroid (Grave's Disease). If you want additional tests done, are holistic at all in your thinking, have a mind of your own or want to adjust meds based on symptoms....he will dismiss you as a patient for being uncooperative and not following doctor's orders. Go to the other doc in CR or go to Iowa City!

FIVE STARS for Dr. Movva I have being seeing Dr. Movva for over 3 years and have found him to be caring, good listener and attentive to my needs. He reviews my labs with me, make recommendations as needed. His staff is always cordial and polite.

Was told Dr. Movva would not see me as a patient because I told his Nurse that if there was a problem my first course of action would be to try to treat it with food and exercise.

Absolutely horrible doctor. Did not listen to anything I had to say. Appointments were about 2 minutes long. He just SAT there and took notes, not even conversating with me. He also gave me the wrong numbers. He told me my TSH levels were 5.2 when they were 32. A bit of a difference. This guy is, do not see him for anything.

Dr Movva did not listen to my symptoms, and has patient notes pre-typed on his computer which he then edits during the visit. Apparently he did not do this well as he had several conditions listed in my notes which I do not have. He was very arrogant.

There are a lot of endocrinologists in the area, my advice is to pass Dr Movva by in your search. I tried his office after moving to CR and was not greeted by his staff, found him rude and uncaring and then called several times with questions about my lab results which he never answered. To make a long story short, it appears that he just doesn't care to clear up any misunderstandings. Life is too short to deal with Dr's who don't care. There are a lot that do.

Dr Movva was a pompous jerk. His listening skills were awful. He was belittling and constantly interrupted. If I could give zero stars I would do so. I will never return for care to this person.
