What People Say About Dr. Ratna Bhavaraju-Sanka, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I was a patient of Dr. Sanka for 7 years. I have a rare disease and had no knowledge of how to find a doctor that knows what my disease is. I stayed on with her for this reason and because she had to approve orders for me to get infusions for my disease. In those 7 years, I called and asked to speak to her about 5 times. Not once, did she personally call me back. I had to wait to see her in person every 6 months to address any concerns. Among several other medical mistakes, most critical one was she ordered for my infusions to be more frequent even though she already knew I had severe allergic reactions in the past at that frequency. I suffered severe reactions again and when I relayed my complaint to Dr Sanka through her nurse, Dr Sanka’s reply to me through her nurse was “ find yourself another doctor” and she dropped me as a patient. I suffered 5 months without infusions and I regressed tremendously in my disease because I couldn’t find a dr. to approve my infusions.

Dr Sanka is an experienced, kind and professional lady. She takes her time listening and thinking outside the box. It may take a long time to be seen by her, but it's very much worth the wait. She's amazing!
