in Harrisburg, PA |
I've seen her for almost four years now. I am really starting I need to change doctors though. She seems to rush my visits, last one was only 6 minutes. I wait a year to see her for six minutes? She also seems to only barely listen to my pain descriptions.
in Lewistown, PA |
My wait was very short. The staff was great, office was clean. Dr. Surapaneni was very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She is a wonderful doctor, and I would highly reccomend her. She listens to my problems and explains everything to me.
