What People Say About Dr. Hema Korlakunta, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Think twice before selecting this doctor. She assumes that a patient understands the complex language of health care which results in miscommunication and eventually lack of trust. A lack of trust in her care should be enough to seek another provider. She and her staff are insensitive and condesending towards those who do not comprehend 'medical jargon'. She lacks the simple ability to offer care and compassion when her patients need it most.

Our experience with Dr Korlakunta was terrible. I would never recommend her to anyone. Highly unprofessional, rude, and actually dangerous with misdiagnosis and incorrect prescriptions. Avoid her at all costs.

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.

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.

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.
