What People Say About Dr. Indira Sastry, MD
Reply
Dr. Sastry spends an adequate amount of time with her patients but does not always follow-up on discussions with them (we would talk about pulmonary rehab, obtaining portable oxygen, etc. and nothing would materialize unless her assistant was personally involved). Her assistant was the most positive part of my experience. Her receptionist displays the personality of a cactus and was the least positive part of my experience.
