Dr. Chemmalakuzhy is very thorough and professional. Always ask questions about how I feel, do I hurt anywhere, and always goes over the meds I take. Keeps a close watch on how I respond to her. I feel very fortunate she is my doctor. On my first visit she knew exactly what was wrong with me by just asking questions and observing me.

Dr. Chemmalakuzhy is a wonderful, caring nephrologist. I have been going to her for about 5 years. She answers my questions in detail with easy to understand explanations. She does not make you feel she is rushed and she gives the impression she feels she is doing something rewarding. If you need a nephrologist I highly recommend her.

My mother is here in Texas with me and she was the first doctor that I took my mother to see when she came to Texas. I think enough of her that I recommended her to my best friend and she passed it on too. I can think of at least 6 patients that I’ve personally recommended her to and they are ALL delighted to have her as a physician. She also treats you as a whole person. She’s easy to talk to and you can tell she enjoys her practice. I have had many nephrologists in my lifetime, but she is the best.
