Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Katragadda kept asking me why my name was Sarah because I'm Indian and that's an American name and when I told her I was engaged to a Pakistani man her mood toward me changed immediately and she became very rude. She clearly had some sort of bias that she did not hide at all. She was not thorough during our evaluation either and I wish I could give her negative stars. She has terrible bed side manner and gives Commonwealth OB/gyn a bad reputation. After seeing her she sent a letter saying she would be discontinuing care for me. What kind of a provider does that?! I'm so disappointed that Doctors who are supposed to be helping are discontinuing needed care for patients based on person biases. She should be fired.

More and more unimpressed each annual visit. As a young adult who actually wants to be thorough about my health, I hate that I always feel rushed during each visit. I see Dr. Katragadda for less than 3 minutes each visit and her answers to my questions are never thorough. Currently searching for a new doctor who shows more compassion and is actually helpful.

She was a good doctor until I got pregnant. I am prone to having HG & large babies which she was aware of both. I also ended up with GD & was considered high risk. She informed me throughout my pregnancy that she would induct me at 39 weeks. When I hit 34 weeks she decided to change her mind & inform me that she wanted us to, "wait for baby to come on his own." My baby ended up being born at 37 weeks & the doctors at the hospital informed her that I was in labor. I called her office once my baby was born to cancel my weekly visits & set up my 6 week check up at that time. The next day I got a call from her nurse informing me that Katragadda wants to try & induce me. This was confusing but I got it straighten out. Katragadda wanted me to get my tubes removed & I agreed with her since I have issues with BC. Katragadda ended up canceling the surgery 3 days before the surgery day because she, "was not comfortable doing the surgery because your bmi is too high. You need to lose weight"

I had a phone call on ad Friday morning, which saved me from having to go into the office. My questions were answered, and I was very satisfied. I also was reassured that if I needed something over the weekend, there would be doctor on call who could help me.

Dr. Katragadda has excellent bedside manner. I have been with this practice for over 20 years. After my nurse practitioner and doctor left/retired, I stayed with the practice and became Dr. Katragadda's patient. I would recommend this practice and becoming Dr. Katragadda's patient.

Very pleasant and personable. I have been very happy over the three years I have gone to her. I was a little concerned because my OB/GYN of over 20 years retired and I don't like change. But Dr. Katragadda was a very pleasant change, and I am hoping she doesn't retire too soon..

Dr. Katragadda is someone who really listens and is committed to making you feel better. She is interested in you as a person and will share some things about herself and family so she works to establish a relationship. The office is well run. I hardly have to wait more than 10 minutes to get in. The one time I did (due to an accident during the commute), I got updates and a sincere apology.

I have been seeing Dr. Katragadda for 8 years. Every year she welcomes me like a long lost friend. She is a wonderful, caring doctor and will listen carefully and give advice. At no time during the visit do I feel rushed. Her nurse, Wanda, is also a lovely person who makes one feel at home.

This was my first visit with Dr. Katragadda. The entire visit was great! From the receptionist, to the nurses and the Dr. I only waited for 10 min, which was outstanding! Dr was wonderful. Took her time to explain everything in detail. Made eye contact the entire time and I never felt like she was rushing. I’m so happy I got referred here!
