Princeton, NJ |
She is THE WORST doctor I have ever seen, she always thinks about money and how to get it. she never asks what patient needs and does whatever she needs and bills for it. I will never ever recommend her to any patients.
Our Doctor is a professional and she focuses on the patient care. Patient has Deductible plan and gets upset when gets the bill. Office Manager Plainsboro Princeton Medical Associates
Cranbury, NJ |
The doctor was extremely nice and easy to talk to. The staff was courteous and the ambiance of the office was great.
in plainsboro, nj |
Dr Chakrala is very knowledgeable, has a lot of book knowledge however when it comes to giving practical suggestions she is not up to the par. My spouse visited her and voiced her concerns on lack of energy and lethargy , instead of assessing the cause she suggested running on a thread mill. Sometimes she pushes for uncalled medications which is indicates unethical practice.
in Princeton Junction, NJ |
Am thankful to Dr. Chakrala who was there with me in my fight with diabetes....thanks to her treatment and motivation...am able to become a normal person from a diabetic person.
in Monmouth Junction, NJ |
We've been seeing this doctor since 2001, and can no doubt say she's passionate about her career, and also treats the patients in a friendly manner. I definetly recommend Dr.Chakrala to my family and anyone who is in need of a knowledgable doctor.
