What People Say About Dr. Preethi Kurakula, MD

I waited 6 months to be treated like my issues and pain weren't real. I have Sjogren's Syndrome and just because my inflammation markers weren't high last year, she said my pain was a "non-issue". She did order more labs and then said they were normal. They were not normal. She didn't listen to my issues and treated me like I was only a paycheck. In response to my note, she then flipped it by saying my labs would be discussed at my next appt. IN SIX months. Do not recommend. Save your sanity.

I do not recommend this doctor at all especially if you're a young patient. I had chronic muscle and joint pain, weight loss, and low grade fevers. Instead of doing the proper lab work, she said I was too young to have a health problem . Months later I went to a new rheumatologist who did the correct lab work and diagnosed me with lupus. Now I am much better with the proper medications. I'm glad I didn't listen to this "doctor". Who knows what kind of trouble I would be in down the road.

TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME! DEMORALIZING AND FRUSTRATING !!! I waited 3 months for this appointment!!! Dr. spent MAYBE a total of 10 min with me, completely uninterested in my symptoms, or history. Minimal exam, didn't even check the joints that are in constant pain and flare up. Told me my positive Rh factor was not significant and stepped out of the room for a couple minutes, came back with pamphlets on managing chronic pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. THAT WAS IT. Looking for new DR. :(

I have trouble with joint and muscle pain, fatigue, digestive issues, and on and off fevers so I initially went to my family doctor. They did an ana test and it came back positive so I was refered to rheumatology especially since lupus and arthritis runs in my family. The doctor said I was way too young to have rheumatic problems (I'm 27) and said to take tylenol. She completely ignored my blood test and entirety of symptoms. The visit was a complete waste of time and money.
