I've had serious health concerns for years that were being over looked by physicians. They didn't seem to care, they didn't seem to listen. By the time I reached Dr. Sastry, I'd given up hope. But during my first visit, he took charge of my care in a way no other doctor ever has, going as far to call other physicians on their personal numbers to get me the appointments and treatments I needed. If you're looking help and feel as though you aren't finding it, schedule an appointment. He can help.

Dr.Sastry is Outstanding Pulmonology specialist I ever met, Before I visit him, I was worried about my health condition with Non-stop coughing and getting fever intermittently for past 2 weeks, I visited other Doctors (multiple visits) to find out problem to diagnose, But they could not able to find out based on symptoms I had. I went to visit Dr.Sastry, He could able to find out problem immediately in (1st Visit) and recommended diagnosis and in 2 days I start feeling better and normal health.

I was referred to Dr. Sastry by my PCP due to breathing issues. He is very thorough with his exam and most times he will exam and talk with me for 20 minutes. He is very knowledgeable and knows many doctors in the area. I have had him call my doctor's during my exam to ask them questions as to why they are giving me certain meds or to advise them of my symptoms, tests and findings so we are all on the same track. I am severely overweight and he never pushed surgery on me just discussed it.

Still puzzled why a pulmonologist would continually push me to see a bariatric surgeon for weight loss... oh, wait... she's his daughter. I never asked about weight loss surgery. Also frustrated by how long it always takes this office to handle medication refills, return phone calls, etc. Very poor communication. Doctor always seems rushed and I wonder if he hears my concerns. Switched doctors and paid for all new tests to be run again just to not have to deal with this office or doctor.

This is by far the rudest doctor I've ever been to. I can understand some doctors not having the best bedside manner, but this goes beyond that. He only spends less than 5 minutes with you, but in that time manages to be rude, condescending and dismissive. I will not be going back to see Dr. Sastry, ever.
