Dr Adlakha is very good with type 2 diabetes. She has helped me with some challenges over the past ten years. I am not a brittle diabetic, but could have been without her management and counselling. Was diagnosed at 49 years old.

I have been seeing Dr Adlakha for a few years now. She has a somewhat cold bedside manner, but she has helped me through a number of health conditions that I have recovered from successfully. She definitely pushes meds for everything, but she listens to me when i say no i am not taking them. Overall the best doctor i have found in my area who accepts Masshealth.

I feel that all 5-star comments below were left by Dr Purnima herself. Rude, won't listen to her patient, dismisses all health concerns if you are 50< y.o. knows more about her billing then about health conditions and treatment options. I'm pretty sure when you tell her "I experience this and this" - she walks out and googles the answer, because the results match just too well... but Google explains it better!

She. Is. Rude! Doesn't listen to concerns. I can't believe people give her 5 stars. I think they may be patients of hers for many years. Her clinical skills and attitude are terrible. She pushes the pills and documents you non-compliant if you make an educated choice to refuse the script. My husband was a new pt 2019 and he dreaded his office visits. She doesn't have any interpersonal skills and that would be fine because he wasn't there to make friends, but she acts downright mean and angry. But.... Her office workers are wonderful people, very courteous. That's the only good thing i can say.

Can be helpful always seemed focused on my BMI. Lost 40 lbs and she kept calling me obese. I weight train was in my best physical shape ever but she focused on BMI. Decided to change doctors. Plus always asked why are you here. I would tell her staff called me.

I've been with Dr. Adlakha for many years. Dr. is very caring and takes time to listen to you. i can say that I've never felt rushed by the Dr. The waiting time sometimes is long (30 to 45 min.) although we (patients) have no idea what concerns the patient that is with Dr. at the time is dealing with. I trust her guidance and respect her. V
