I saw Dr. B for two years but had to find another physician because she kept cancelling my appointments to go out of the country. I understand that doctors have lives too, but plan ahead and block your schedule? If it had only happened once or twice, I would be more understanding, but I was cancelled on 6 times in two years - thats more times than I ever saw her. One time they called to reschedule and then called to reschedule the RESCHEDULED appointment! I liked her a lot as a doctor, but I need consistent reliable care. I cannot recommend her due to the inconsistency I experienced.

She is an excellent rheumatologist experienced in Scleroderma disease and interstitial lung disease. Will probably be saving my life for a longer time due to her prompt care and knowledge. The Lord has kept me here many years w this disease. I am blessed.

Worst place to go to. I had an allergy test taken at this office and they had lost all of my records of what I was allergic to. On top of that when they had lost my record they told me I had to pay for another one if I wanted another, when they lost my record. When driving to see here they called me saying the appointment was cancelled keep in mind this was around 2ish. The whole day almost past and they never thought to call the patient. I would recommend to go somewhere else.

Dr. Basavaraju used to care a few years ago but lately all of the visits I've gone to are a waste of time. I get absolutely NO help when I come in for pain and odd symptoms.

Dr B has been great with both my Allergy and Fibromyalgia treatments. It was great to have 1 doctor for both of my major ailments. She also provided great referrals for other questions that I had as well.
