What People Say About Dr. Ranga Chelva Krishna, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
The worst doctor, the worst office and of course the worst nurses. I have been calling their office for 2+ months and they are not providing medical records to my other doctor. I dont know why the hold the records. I an starting to be specticle about it, perhaps the doctor never filed my tests even though he said he did? Thats the only reason i would think why they are not sending it to me, or , the nurses do lie and they never do their job. Its been 2 months i have been waiting fir it.

I like Dr K, When i was there i also had a couple in house tests done, overall within a couple visits I was diagnosed and me and the doc set a good regiment for me to follow, i do feel much better after my accident, especially because Dr K also testified on my behalf in court, this helped my case allot, im very greatful to have stumbled upon Dr K

TBH, Dr Mollins was not so pleasant, he pushed me around like a was a veggitable he didnt want on his dinner plate, I didnt feel respected as a human, BUT!!! then i met the neurologist and that turned my opinion around, I really liked Dr. Krishna, he helped me very much after my accident, I was in alot of pain, he was very quick to get me a simple test and diagnose me, he also got me an MRI autho very quick, i was in and out, and i'm generally very happy with his care.

I would Deff recommend!!!!
