Excellent doctor. Don’t know what the other reviews are talking about. She always takes her time with me, answering all my questions. Would definitely recommend her.

Horrible. Reviews are true. The doctor is not here for scheduled appointment times and the staff needs to text/call once you arrive. I had to wait an hour to see her the first time and she wasn’t even there the second visit. She was also short and impatient when she saw me. Would not recommend this doctor.

The Dr is nice but please.....do not waste your time.... She's never there when you arrive for your appointment (she even left the country and no one even called me to reschedule my appt). The staff barely answers the phone and good luck getting your lab results. I said that last years physical was going to be my last visit and I gave in and scheduled another...that she didn't show up for. I will NEVER step foot in that office again.

The Dr is pleasant & caring, she listens.. I have recommended her to family. Only negative is the office needs a makeover, smells chalky at times. Also the staff should be friendlier, seems like they don't care to be there, maybe bcus they are all young girls who may not see the value of having a job and working for a nice Dr. Customer service is key when dealing with the public. SMILE even if you fake it!

The doctor isn't around at the scheduled appointment time. The staff calls the doctor to come from wherever she's at. The medical machinery is so old that the people working there literally had to kick the EKG machine to turn on. I would not recommend this doctor even to my worst enemy.

I recently brought my dad to see Dr. Katapadi. She was so patient with him and revised all his problems and medications and diagnosed the cause of his symptoms. Recommend her for all senior citizens. Lucky to have found her!

Dr. Katapadi is as dry as a piece of toast. She has no beside manner. She does not contact the family of a patient until she prescribes the wrong medication and then contacts the family to cover her medical tracks. She is aloof and unavailable. Not good with seniors!
