Highly inefficient staff!! Would not suggest anybody to go there! Dr alone being good doesn’t help at all when the team is highly inefficient and terrible communication between staff and patients! Highly disappointed with both staff service and doctor!

I found Dr Aruna Chakrala as the Best Internist in Mercer county area. We were so impressed by her Professionalism, generosity, compassion, friendly nature and openness. She gives us enough time to explain and thinks through our problems and answers all our questions very patiently. She has unearthed one of my hidden, severe health issue recently, by her excellent diagnostic, analytical and patient caring skills, which otherwise would have posed a grave threat to my survival. I was able to get all of the extra care and tests that I'm sure most doctors wouldn't take the time to do. She went out of the way to help me overcome the problem with a lightning speed and in the best possible way. I am thankful to Dr. Aruna Chakrala for correctly diagnosing and treating me well, in-time. When needed she responds personally over phone. Dr. Chakrala maintains a clean and pleasant office. Her office staff are responsive, courteous and are very friendly. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the promptness and professional care given to me. Our experience at this facility was of the quickest and best we have ever encountered. Traveling from PA to NJ for patient care speaks volume about Dr Aruna and her care for her patients. She quickly diagnosed what was wrong with me while it was not resolved by our previous doctors. An hour travel for my care shows the kind of faith we have in her.

Dr. Chakrala is the most compassionate doctor I have ever known. Her office staff are equally warm and kind. Dr Chakrala has been my PCP for more than 15 years. I feel at home with her and her staff members. In this time and age we need more compassionate doctors like her. Good physician treats disease, Great Physician treats the patients who has the disease. Blessed to know her.
