What People Say About Dr. Pratap Challa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have been seeing him for over two years for eye pressure and cataracts. He is very good in sharing information for all my questions since having my cataract surgery recently and he is very kind and caring with his patients. I am very happy with the service I have had when seeing him and I plan to keep going to him for any eye issues that I may have in the future.Although, he stays very busy he still takes the time to show the kind of caring doctor and patient relationship that seems to be lacking other places these days.
