You will never find a better Dr. or staff then this group. If you complain about the wait, maybe he isnt for you but just remember he is so caring that he takes his time with each patient. When emergencies arrive he has to go to the hospital. My family have been his patients for over 40 years. Sure we need more doctors but he does his best to see everyone. Just be thankful he can. His office staff is always more than helpful and very friendly .

I have had the pleasure of being seen by both Dr. Lakireaddy's (Sr. and Jr.) Recently more with Jr. who is maybe taking the new patients. They both are extremely professional yet not stuffy. They are very skilled and I feel completely comfortable with them making my health decisions. I would recommend either of them to a friend. I just wish they had a place to go sit with a television that doesn't sit and show medical ads with maybe some tables to sit at and do things on.

Dr. Lakireddy has been my cardiologist for about 12 years. He is never rushed and explains things very well. One time they could not locate my chart (before computer charts) yet he still remembered my last visit and all my test results. I would strongly recommend him to my friends and family.

There was extreme difficulty communicating with this doctor. He told me that I have PVCs but was unable to describe what that means. He asked me to return for more testing and then left the country for a month! This was a total dereliction of duty. Horrible office staff too! They were super rude.
