Getting ahold of anyone hear is next to impossible. They are unhelpful and customer service is subpar. Dr. Challa is not personable at all.

Nothing is worse than changing your doctor and then having regrets due to the cause of stress. It is apparent that she has more patients than she can handle. I went for an annual exam. Everyone was over all nice. The visit was brief. I mentioned to the doctor that I will need a prescription for my birth control pills but she forgot and after my visit, I walked out. Then I walked back in to remind her. I showed her the pills i take but somehow she managed to prescribe me the generic br

Making an appointment was easy as there were plenty available and could be made online. However, I quickly leaned Dr. Chala overbooks. I waited over 2 hours beyond my appointment time to be seen. This was not the first time I was treated this way. The doctor was rude and short with me. After prescribing medication, I waited over two weeks for a pre-approval despite calls from my pharmacist and myself. Dr. Challa actually yelled at me over the phone about my desire to be able to get medication.

When I reached doctors office they said it was for additional procedure and I said there was no procedure has been done . Apparently they are lying . In the bill doctor diagnosis me
