Dr. Senkottaiyan is a wonderful doctor, smart, caring and professional. I have referred all my friends and family members that need an endocrinologist to her. I highly recommend her.
St Louis, MO |
Very well educated, and genuinely cares about her patients. Has treated me and multiple family members. Would absolutely recommend. Office is run efficiently as well.
St Louis, MO |
Refill authorization takes several days and the practice requires drugstore to make the request.

My daughter who is type 1 diabetic is a patient of this doctor. She had to wait a whole day for a prescription for insulin. Call was made since patient was on last vial of insulin, but insulin wasn't working for her--it had denatured. Even a pharmacist observed doctor's receptionist as being rude and unconcerned about filling prescription! Also, when patient was at Mercy for a week with diabetes complications, this doctor never came by to see her even though doctor's office is at Mercy!

Dr. Neela is the best endocrinologist I have ever been to. She listens to me when I talk and tries different things with medicine that other endocrinologists would not. I look forward to seeing her once a year. She brightens my day when I see her and puts me at ease with my Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I would 100% recommend her.

My experience with Dr. Senkottaiyan has been great. Dr. Senkottaiyan's expertise, bedside manner, and ability to clearly communicate was truly appreciated. Dr. Senkottaiyan's ability to quickly respond to emails and deliver laboratory results has further instilled my confidence in her skill sets and my future appointments and treatments. After seeing multiple endocrinologists, I am completely satisfied and wish I had seen her from the beginning of my medical complications.
