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

I have been a patient of Dr Challa for 3 yeas and she has never disappointed me. She is always kind and a caring person. She is very knowledgeable and professional in working with her patients.

Dr. Challa is an exceptional doctor. She has such a friendly and pleasant demeanor. She is patient and cares so much about her patients well being. She is very thorough and she makes you feel as if you are the only patient she has. She is so knowledgeable in many aspects of medicine. Whatever your medical needs are, Dr. Challa will excel in treating you. In all of my 69 years, I have never been treated by a doctor as kind and caring as Dr. Challa.

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.

I have visited doctor Challa for throat infection and doctor see me hardly 4 minutes and prescribed Antibiotics . With my insurance BCBS they sent bill for $169 which is crazy !!! 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
