For two years I have been suffering with shortness of breath..Extreme fatigue and not being able to accomplish even small daily tasks. I have seen 3!! Cardiologist over the past two years and not one of them could figure out what the issues were causing my symptoms. Prior to this..I worked 40-55 hours a week..on top of that trained horse and was active non-stop. I was starting to get depressed..giving up all hope..beginning to wonder if I was simply going crazy..Then I found Dr. Akella..my 4th cardiologist in 2 years. My first visit..he was Compassionate..listened to my story..and gave me Hope again. Two tests were scheduled right away and follow up scheduled just a couple days after. My Second appointment..Dr Akella knew Exactly what the issue is AND a plan to fix it!! I was so overjoyed that I actually got all teary eyed during the appointment. Every single person at this clinic gas been Empathetic..kind..and super efficient.

Again for second year in a row this office so screwed up. Last year rescheduled my echo 3 times. This year show up for scheduled appt at 8:30AM . Internet down, doctor not coming in until 10:30, no one to do echo. No record of my appointment yet I rec'd 2 phone messages asking me to confirm....which I did. Time to change doctors enough of the round around at this place.

Find someone else. He is interested only in performing costly procedures, not patient care. He performed an unnecessary angioplasty on me, then insisted on implanting a defibulator with no follow up care. I have had nothing but problems since, and he will not see me.

Very nice man but his staff is totally incompetent and unprofessional. He does not explain treatments plans and seems rushed to get to the next patient.

I really like Dr. Akella - but I have now been on hold with his office for 17 minutes trying to reschedule an appointment that the office cancelled due to not getting advance authorization for a procedure.
