in Austin, Tx |
First let me say that Dr. Gowda is very nice and professional. His staff however is not. I went for a sleep study that did not include every thing need for an insurance claim for my BiPap. I now have to go elsewhere and it is doubtful my insurance will pay for another study. So I either pay for a new study or a new machine, about $1000 either way.

I have been seeing Dr Gowda for well over a decade. He was one of the few accredited sleep doctors with an accredited sleep lab when I first saw him. That was at a time when there were many physicians working in this field who did not have accreditations either for the physician or the labs. Dr Gowda is first rate and knows what he is doing. You, as a patient, need to be compliant - the latest equipment is light-years better than the old gear, actually helping you remain compliant.

I see dr. Gowdas nurse practitioner Shane for narcolepsy and she is extremely helpful and kind. I can email through the patient portal if I have any concerns and questions and she is very responsive. The staff is very helpful and never have had a wait at any visit.
