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....more

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.
