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.

My mom has various health issues and symptoms. Since switching to Dr. Bukkapatnam, I no longer worry if my mother is getting the best care possible. Unlike our previous cardiologist, Dr. B listens and is professional, proactive and provides recommendations to keep my mom out of the ER. She is actively engaged in my mother's care so much so that I have even received calls from her on weekends and evenings if I needed to make any medication adjustments or take action. She is so wonderful that I am happy to travel from Elk Grove to Carmichael to have my mom in her care. I cannot say enough and would recommend her to anyone looking for exceptional cardiac care.

She is genuinely concerned for her patients and provides the utmost care. She takes time to answer all your questions and explains everything thoroughly. She is by far the best doctor I have ever had.
