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.
