What People Say About Dr. Rachakonda Prabhu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Though Dr. Prabhu is a very knowledgeable and capable doctor, his front office staff is poor and and grumpy. Dr. Prabhu ordered medication, a steroid, an antibiotic, and nebulizer. After 3 calls and 2 weeks later to find out when I was going to get the machine without any response, I asked to speak to manager. My 2nd call finally talked to her. She complained about how busy she is and how I was bugging her. The tests has never been scheduled nor a return appointment isn't scheduled, either.

Dr. Prabhu is very nice and knowledgeable but if you are not a pulmonary patient you are subjected to an endless round of PAs who are constantly misrepresented as doctors and doctors who can't write prescriptions! Staff will not let you contact Dr. Prabhu so I found another provider.

Was referred in January, was not given CPAP until September. My appointment with the doctor was rushed. The doctor literally gave me a minute of his time and hastily used his stethoscope. Basically same job my primary care provider could have done. The assistant took about 3-4 minutes to run through the standard diagnostic questions. Paid $150 for him to approve my CPAP usage to my insurance company. Billing and front office are disorganized and do not send results to my primary care doctor.
