Patient Comments (6)
Dr Suravaram is very professional, gentle and patient. She listens to your concerns and offers her advise and expertise. I just went for my physical, when i found out my Blood pressure was high. she put me on a 24hr BP monitor. it still continued to be high.She had to put me on BP medication and also to rule out any other complications, she even ordered a stress test and an echo cardiogram. I am thankful that my BP is under control now. She is pleasant in her approach and thorough in her checkup

I was beyond impressed with my experience at this Dr.Smitha Suravaram.My first contact with Dr. Smitha and I was completely blown away by how helpful, Kind, compassionate and a caring person and she is a truly outstanding doctor. I count truly lucky to have found her. I had a chest pain and was bit concerned. However, the doctor was so courteous and wanted to know in depth if I was stressed out couple of weeks to find the reason y did I get a pain.She is my family doctor now for the past 5 years

One of the worst doctors even seen and sad to say she is even a MD , only sis no real checkup and only use computer to get medical advice by clicking symptoms and recommedes over the counter meds if i knew that i wouldn't go to a Dr said to say she wasted my time and confidence i beleive she can use a real MD Advice

Dr Smitha is an ideal PCP who devotes time and has patience to understand her patients well. She is very knowledgeable and has very good diagnostic ability. She refers to specialists when required. I and my wife have been consulting with her for last one year and have been very happy to have discovered her when we shifted to Chicago area a year back. I also received calls from her office inquiring if I was feeling better or responding well to the treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Smitha.
