Dr Korlakunta is amazing! I would highly recommend her to all my family and friends.
in May Tx |
This sweet lady took very good care of my husband and answered all our questions. Also was willing to work with us in using generic meds that we could afford. She is very intelligent and very competent. I would totally recommend her.
in Pottsboro, TX |
I saw this doctor for the first time yesterday. She was extremely patient and answered all of my questions. Their office is checking with my insurance and getting back to me about further tests that are required. Typically, this is something I've had to do the footwork on, so that is appreciated.
Ashburn, VA |
Her bedside manner is poor. Her attitude is poor. When asked questions she is very impatient-poor attitude regarding family memebers questions as well. She is more intersted in getting paid when she is on call at the hospital while making rounds in the emergency room. She made a statement that reflected the above. If your loved one is diagnosed with a condition you know nothing about I would not recommend this doctor.
