I've seen Dr. Chemmalakuzhy a couple of times now and must say that the experiences have gone very well. She allows ample time to discuss all aspects of one's condition and recommended care with available options. She listens and encourages a respectful dialogue and Dr. / patient relationship. I highly recommend Dr. Chemmalakuzhy. (I gave a three for urgent scheduling since I haven't needed,)

Dr. Chemmalakuzhy has been taking care of me since 2011. I cannot express enough the wonderful care she has given me through these years. I was at death’s door when she entered my life. I owe her everything for giving me another chance with a new healthy way of life with her compassion and expertise as a kidney specialist. ??????

I have been going to Dr. Chemmalakuzhy for about 4 years (2x’s a year) and she is a great dr. She shows a real interest in my health (in all areas). She takes plenty of time to talk to me in my visits and answers all my questions with concise and easily understood language. I highly recommend her!
