in Cedar Falls, IA |
Very cold bedside manor by the staff. Scheduling is always a hassle. Doctor is all business and you sometimes walk out of the office confused.
in Waterloo, IA |
This doctor was always very friendly to me whenever I came in for my appointments. Office staff was very friendly and seemed to move efficiently. Dr. Reddy listens to my concerns and helps me address my problems in whatever way she can. Definitely recommend this doctor to any family or friends you have as she will surely help you out!
Cedar Falls, IA |
Certain the positive feedback left 3/17 was an "inside job". Appointments and procedures were always getting messed up (by the staff). Urgent request by the hospital to see the doctor took 1 1/2 months (urgent?!), doctor asked how I was doing after having thyroid removal surgery -- I had NOT had my thyroid removed. Not confident in this doctor or office staff.
Lawler, IA |
Dr. Yerrapareddy is a very cheerful doctor that gives you her time. She is very busy, but if I have questions she will always stay and answer them fully. Her office staff is delightful as well. They remember me when I come, and I come from 52 miles away. I would recommend her to anyone with a thyroid condition! Also, if I call with a question, they always get back to me the same day!

Disregarded all my concerns, just wanted me to continue having blood work every 3 months without even doing anything such as putting me on medicine, etc. She learned I had a miscarriage and didn't even acknowledge the loss. VERY UNSATISFIED with her level of professionalism and kindness. Will be seeing a new endocrinologist soon.
Cedar Falls, IA |
I've had two different ultrasounds on my thyroid that indicate Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and she doesn't check thyroid antibodies?! Lackadaisical at best. See another provider.
in Waverly, IA |
She does not understand how all the hormones are connected; thyroid, adrenal, etc. She didn't even understand T3 i.e. T4 conversion. I was finally diagnosed with Addison's or severe Adrenal Insufficiency, but she didn't know or want to test for it. Don't pay the higher price for what your primary MD can tell you; and that's still not much based on blood testing. Need to chart it and better yet do saliva testing, it's much more sensitive anyway.
in Waterloo, IA |
She doesn't really listen to my concerns, and instead focuses on satisfying her own standard questions and requirements for my chart. Every time I visit her office I end up waiting for at least 45 minutes, and then get roughly 10 minutes with her. She nitpicks and unnecessarily calls out my less than perfect blood sugars, making me feel like a failure when my A1c is always in the 6.0 to 7.0 range- which is considered very good.
