Patient Comments (6)
Very unhappy the staff is rude. You never see the Doctor only his PA 's who have no clue what they are doing. They don't go over lab results with you and they write things in there notes that u can view online that's is nothing they discussed with you. They miss dignosed my daughter with a very contagious rash and it wasn't till the 2nd visit that the DR finally came in and dignosed her. When I addressed the Dr he got upset and didn't want to see me as a patient anymore.
Needed an internist, took 2 months to get appt. His Nurse (Jeff) very nice and helpful, more so Than Dr. "K". I was in and out without any answers. Did not feel he was attentive to me needs. I did not know anymore from him than my Primary Dr. When I came out There was a Lady who works in the office yelling at a staff member. I assumed she was the office manager, I felt this was very unprofessional. Later I found out from the person who referred me to Dr. K, That was his wife doing the yelling!

Mom is a patient of Dr.K's, but I go into every appointment with her. For routine check-ups (prescription refills, etc) she does see the nurse practitioner and not Dr. K. However, he makes sure to see her several times a year to review where she stands with her heart condition. He is very patient about explaining the reasons behind his ordering of prescriptions and/or tests when necessary. Her health has been stabilized since becoming a patient of Dr. K's years ago and she is doing very well

Was the worst ever, I have been there like five times and I never seen by a doctor. Every time I have been seen by a nurse , however the first time I asked to see a doctor and they told me next visit and it never happened. Plus the staff there were so rude and uncooperative specialty the office manager.

It took them a month to fill out a simple health form after my physical. I paid to have the form filled out. Then they required me to make another appointment for a physical to pick up the form. Then the woman accused ME of being difficult. WHAT?? This woman wasn't even a health professional. And you never get to see the doctor. The NP manages everything!! Looking for a new MD!

A quick statement that I believe will explain my experience with Dr. Krishniah over the past seven years. If he moves his practice to another state, I am prepared to sell my house and follow him. He is by far, the best doctor I have ever had. I retired from the United States Marine Corps after 20 years of service. During that time I had a number of family practitioners, but Dr. Krishniah far exceeds any of them in your evaluation criteria. Again, he is nothing short of superb!
