Dr Chittineni is awesome, after many years(and many other dermatologists) with zero effect on my psoriasis, she took the time to listen. Working with my MS condition she found the right combination and has me on the mend in just a few months. It's nice not hurting anymore and my patches nearly noticable. I highly recommend.

Spent less than 2 minutes in the room and seemed like she couldn’t wait to get to next patient. Assumed my answers instead of listening to what I had to say. Came out with no answers, and her telling me to come back in a month.

It was pleasure being patient of Dr. Chittineni. Everyone in the office is very organized (efficient): from the receptionist, Dr, assistant and Dr, Chittineni. This was my first visit to see Dr. Chittineni and all was explained to me in simple terms. Initial treatment was performed and also biopsy for further evaluation. Again, I can't say enough how impressed I was with the whole process from check in to check out. Best doctor experience...

I attempted to make an appointment 3 times this morning and every single attempt I got the voice message machine and not a real person. They attempted to call me back, but as luck would have it I was then busy with other things. I scheduled with someone else whose reception did pick up and help me out.

Personality plus The best in dermatology ! I have been a patient for years, sent my family and many friends and referrals to Dr. Chittineni and they all say the same--precise, successful outcomes due to her diagnosis and treatment, and are confident in referring her to others.

I have been seeing Dr. Chittineni for a number of years now, and I actually enjoy the visit with her. It is like seeing a good friend. She is always cheerful and interested in my welfare. While during her full body examination of me she explains the importance of sunscreen and how often to apply. She reviews the ABCDE of self examination, and she makes sure I am up to date on my dental, gynecological and eye health. Dr. C. cares for her patients!

Great Service by the doctor, however 50.00 co-pays every visit is very expensive especially if your visiting every two weeks. Also, wait time is always a bit much, maybe better scheduling.

Dr Chitteneni was very professional and offered several options for my skin issue. Unlike some physicians she does not write out a prescription and hurry to get you out of the room. She explained my treatment thoroughly and asked if I had any questions. She offers over-the-counter choices and is also knowledgeable about organic skin care!

My husband and I both saw Dr. C last week. She is quite competent and is an outstanding communicator; listening well and explaining everything completely. She quickly made a diagnosis in both cases and the treatments were appropriate. She also gave me some very helpful information on other health-related matters. Dr. C is very personable and friendly, too; and the nurse and receptionist were friendly and helpful as well. The office is pleasant and clean; waiting time was very reasonable.

Receptionist was pleasant initially; however when I asked about long the wait I was told sharply that my " information had to be put in" the system. I had waited more than an hour . The receptionist was the most pleasant until that point. I got the impression that Doctor and her assistant were hurried and rushed, perhaps behind schedule I don't know. I don't like to write negative reviews but I have not encountered so much negativity in one office for a long time. I was disappointed.
