    Dr Muni made me feel very comfortable from the get go. He explained everything in a way that I could understand, I appreciated that very much!! Not all Doctors take that kind of time or compassion with their patients.

    Dr. Munikrishnappa is a breath of fresh air! I read many reviews looking for a Nephrologist before choosing to make an appointment with him. I am so glad that I did. He listens attentively, he thinks about what needs to be done and asks discovery questions applicable to expand his understanding of what might be needed to bring the patient to optimal health. He is honest and transparent and will tell you if any information is outside the scope of his knowledge or ability to treat, he also will tell you what he can help with and share clearly, what your ideal options for achieving health. I highly recommend him. <3

    The whole staff and Dr Munikrishnappa are nice and very accommodating. Their waiting area has seats that comply with social distancing due to covid and they are providing sanitizing liquid as well. Dr Munikrishnappa explained the results of the recent blood works and spends time with patients.

    Care taking Doctor At the outset I just want to thank Dr. Devaraj for making me feel so much better. He is truly a remarkable doctor and a professional that I respect and trust. When I first saw him two years ago for a Nephrology condition he was spot on and put me on a treatment plan, with periodic visit and right medication within 6 months I had tremendous improvement, now I am completely back to normal. He treats patience with passion. I would strongly recommend Dr. Devaraj for any nephrology related treatment.
