in Portage, MI |
My 92 year old mother and I (62) both see Dr. Kocharla and we recommend her without reservation. She listens carefully and responds fully to all of our concerns. We believe she's always up to date on the latest drugs and treatments, and she gives careful consideration to all of our medical needs. She can explain complicated medical issues in a way that we're able to understand. She's always open to questions and seems to welcome feedback. She's warm and friendly yet very professional.

I lived in the area of Kalamazoo a few years ago and chose Dr. Koocharla as my rhumatologist at that time. I plan on moving back to Kalamazoo are in a year or so and will definitaly choose her again. She was very kind and thorough and nice to talk to. Very comfortable with her. She knows her stuff. : )

This do tor can be very rude and will not listen to your complaints. She started a injection Rion into my knees and more of the medicine went onto the floor instead going into my knees.
