    Dr. Krishnamurthy is the best. He listens, answers questions, and takes time to go over every detail of my treatment. He has excellent “bedside” manners and really cares about improving my health. He is also very informative, making sure I understand everything that I am dealing with, potential causes, and all possible solutions. I have severe asthma and likely sleep apnea that’s causing all sorts of ailments. After an ambulance ride to the ED, I was referred to different pulmonologist who wouldn’t return calls. I called Dr. Krishna’s office. The very next day I had a telephone appointment with him, and the day after that I was in office for a breathing test. After the results showed 60% lung function, I was given a new medication to try, and appointments were made for a sleep study. Dr. K has ensured that we will continue with frequent breathing tests to monitor the effectiveness of the new drugs and make changes as necessary. I am beyond thrilled to finally be getting some help!

    Very professional. Quickly diagnosed my sleep apnea. I am now using a cpap that has greatly improved my sleep. My overall health is improving. The staff are friendly. Wait time to be seen is less than 15 minutes.

    I drive almost 100 miles, one way, to see Dr. K. His staff is excellent and their willingness to make your experience a positive one rates a 10/10. I suffered for years with chronic sleep apnea and I had seen other physicians and had a failed sleep study and an overall bad experience. I looked for months for a physician who would take my situation seriously and I kept coming back to Dr. K and his experience as a pulmonologist with sleep medicine. I highly recommend this doctor to everyone.

    Dr. Krishnamurthy has been my sleep doctor for 7 years and does a great job of not only providing treatment but education and support for my condition. He is prompt, caring and a great doc. The wait time at his office is usually very short and he is a compassionate, excellent physician.

    From the pleasant front desk staff, to the knowledgeable nurses, to Dr. K himself, everything about the Comprehensive Sleep and Breathing Center is completely professional. They all take time to answer any question, explain everything they are suggesting, and make you feel that you are the only patient they have to care for that day. After a sleep study and CPAP machine recommended by Dr. K I'm sleeping better and feeling more rested than ever before. I recommend him and his staff very highly
