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.
