Dr Puppala sent a portal message to his patients on March 16 during coronavirus. Oak trees and grass pollen was extremely high and I didnt feel well and my anxiety was high. I replied to his message with my symptoms. Within minutes he called me. He called my pharmacy and ordered medication. I feel so much better. My anxiety diminished just by speaking with him. Dr Puppala is a very caring doctor. I appreciate him and his staff very much and Im so thankful he is one of my doctors.

Dr Puppala himself is nice, and easy to work with. However I have never waited less than 45 minutes past my appointment time to see him (usually over an hour) and his staff are just terrible. The event that lead me to write this review was my recent experience (the latest in a string of bad experiences) when my BiPap machine broke. The machine was making a funny noise, so I called the surgery to see what they would suggest. The woman on the phone looked up my records, told me the machine was still under warranty and that the only way to use the warranty was to bring it in to the office, she told me the name of the lady I should ask for when I got there. So I took a morning off work to drive over there (they've recently moved so they are now a 40 minute drive instead of a 10 minute drive from home). I got there and asked for the name I was given. The desk lady asked if I had an appointment. I said no, I wasn't told I needed one. She told me the lady wouldn't see me without an appoin

I have IPF. I am approaching my 6th year under Dr Puppala's care. I believe he is directly responsible for me living this long. Not only is Dr Puppala very knowledgeable, he actually listens when the patient talks. He will go the last mile to address the patient's needs, whether it be new medicine or new procedures. Dr. Puppala is hands down the best pulmonologist I have had.
