I highly recommend Dr Challapalli to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable cardiologist. He always takes the time to explain in terms that I can understand. I believe he has healing hands, since I always feel better after seeing him.

I met him through the recommendation by my cardiologist. He took the time to explain what would be happening with my procedures. He made an excellent recommendation to another surgeon for the first phase of my ablation. He adjusted his schedule to allow a timely performance of my second procedure in Redding, Ca. His physician liason Judy is very responsive and engaged with solving problems or getting answers. I'm very happy with the entire experience, thank you!

Very professional and really understood my problems and took care of them. Thanks to him and his team I will be able to do all the physically challenging things I like to do instead of sitting/laying down all day so would not have another stroke! Dr. Challapalli and his team worked very hard at getting my heart to behave! I would recommend this Dr/Team to anyone! Leslie Moody

He is always extremely rushed during visits. He spends maybe two minutes maximum talking with me, and is in such a hurry that he doesn't even listen carefully enough to listen to the symptoms I have. I've had two doctors say that I should see a cardiologist, but he is always dismissive of my symptoms saying that nothing is wrong. My family doctor wanted me to have two tests done within two weeks. He refused to do one of the test and scheduled the other 12 weeks out. Incredibly infuriating.
