Never had issues and for those people with an "accent phobia" his English is good and he does speaks perfectly clear. He is very respectful as well as his staff.

Dr. Kannegenti is great. It should be pointed out that he is not a counselor, nor is he a therapist, nor is he a psychologist. I suggest looking up the distinction between these before choosing a mental health professional. That being said, as a psychiatrist, he listens intently and provides a diagnosis based on what's told, then prescribes medication, recommends counseling, or whatever else he sees fit. Anyone who has issues with this concept should not see a psychiatrist.

He only saw me for a short visit then billed my insurance company over $1,000 for that one visit. He was rude and lacked any kind of empathy. I wouldn't trust this man or his morals.

He was very hard for me to understand. I feel he also had a hard time understanding and listening to me. He kept asking me certain questions and seemed frustrated that he wasn't getting the answers he was looking for. Talking to him felt like talking to a wall. The appointment was very rushed and a waste of my time. I highly urge others to go elsewhere.

Very disappointed with my experience with Dr. Kanbegenti. I was rushed during both appointments and told all prior diagnosis were inaccurate and unless I agreed with his diagnosis I would need to find another doctor. The whole experience was very troubling and left me feeling very vulnerable. I highly recommend finding another doctor if you want someone to listen to you and work together to come up with a treatment plan.
