What People Say About Dr. Balakrishna Mangapuram, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Not engaged and refused to serve as PCP for my daughter, who had a heart transplant in 2018. Said she was "non-compliant" and did not seek his care in 2018. Interesting, as she was in the hospital for the transplant and recovery. However, as a "coordinator of care", he never called or sought out any sort of involvement in care management. Did nothing at all.

Very kind doctor, was able to help me with my issues. Was able to contact him directly and he addressed all my concerns in a courteous manner. Will be using him again if any issues come up. For anyone in the future, he is busy in the mornings, but pretty free in the afternoon from what I have seen.

My dad has sleeping problems and in order to refill his prescription he had to visit the doctor every so often and the doctor wouldn’t even ask him questions about his health. The worst part is that he never detected in the yearly physical exams or CBC that my dad had Leukemia! Stay away from this doctor!

Very nice Doctor, listened to everything I needed to say and gave me advice and prescriptions to alleviate the issue I'm having.There was no wait, I arrived on time for my appointment and was taken straight back. The office staff is helpful and always answer the phone on the first couple rings and I was even able to speak over the phone with the Dr. directly once about my ongoing problem.I've had offices in the past that I've had to leave VM's and wait but they answer right away.

If you want quick service then this is your guy. If you want thorough care run in the other direction. Anytime you need anything, no matter what it is, you have to make an appointment. It's ridiculous! Plus everything I have ever seen him for I had to tell him what I needed. I should NOT have to be my own Dr! I will not go back. I should have known when the first time I went to see him I got an appointment the day I called, got there and there were no patients and its the same every time I go.

Went for a physical and he never even listen to my heart beat. Just ordered blood work and then he never called with the results. The staff needs to be given classes in customer service.

Not the best doc. Wouldn't help me out with my add, even though I'm starting school in a couple days, or my cracked lip just looked at me and said its dry.
