When I was referred to Dr. Pinnaka almost five years ago I was a candidate for dialysis. Due to the excellent care I received from her, my kidney functions have been normal for three years. She is the ultimate professional and has the best bedside manner and concern I have ever encountered. I wholeheartedly recommend her without reservation.

Dr. Pinnaka has turned my life right side up. August 2018 I was at stage three kidney failure. I followed her directions to the letter, cut out everything I was eating that was not good. Eliminated prescriptions that were bad for my kidneys, in turn lowering my A1C. As of 01/28/2019 my kidneys are normal and I'm no longer considered type 2 diabetic. Thank you Dr. Pinnaka
