My daughter has been seeing Dr. Chilakapati since she was 8 weeks old. She has extreme infantile esotropia. She has had two surgeries so far and might need a third. My daughter loves her still after 3 years of seeing Doc on a regular basis. We have seen vast improvements in her eyes. We got second opinions from other doctors who all agreed with Dr. Chilakapati and these other doctors all spoke highly of her. We highly recommend Dr. Chilakapati and Gina. Her staff is great.
in Humble, TX |
She was rude and condescending. She was very arrogant and did not listen to the past history of our children. She was derogetory of every other doctor we have ever used. The cost and billing was REDICULOUS and inaccurate.

She is an AMAZING doctor! Her bedside manner is like no other. My children feel such at ease with her and actually enjoy going to see her! She and her staff are always willing to work with me and my busy schedule and fit me in. Dr. C is the best!!
Houston, TX |
Dr. Chilakapati and her staff took excellent care of my 13 year old daughter. She was kind and caring and made both myself and my daughter comfortable with the examination. She did an excellent job including my daughter in the explanation of the results. I would definitely recommend family and friends to Dr. Chilakapati's office. It is obvious she cares and that loves what she does.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Chilakapati was great with my 5 year old for her first eye exam! We wanted to do a pre-screen before she started kindergarten. My child is not the best patient but she was great working with her to get her through the exam and explained everything thoroughly.
