San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Tamirisa has been my only nephrologist Doctor and will continue to be. He has taken my kidney pain away and truly cares for my well being. The office staff is always welcoming and smiling which makes the visits pleasant.
Dr. Tamirisa answered all my concerns in a manner that was understandable, unlike many other Doctors I've had. I consider him family. Him and his staff are always there to help me with my CKD.
Please avoid this doctor if you can. He is incompetent.
