Patient Comments (3)
in Columbia, SC |
Dr Morthala lacks the empathetic care necessary to effectively treat her patients. She does not schedule or recommend the necessary followup blood tests while receiving infusion or biological treatments. Her staff lacks basic customer service skills and NEVER return phone calls within a reasonable timeframe. The entire office is in serious need of hiring qualified and pleasant staff. Do NOT waste your time even considering this Dr - you won't get the care you need when you need it.
Smyrna, GA |
I don't trust her office staff. Messages never get relayed to the doc from her "nurse". Misinformation and conflicting information abounds!
in Irmo, SC |
She is the absolute worst rheumatologist on planet earth. If you see this woman you are putting your own health in peril. How she got her license to practice medicine defy's logic. She is not qualified to put a bandaid on a scraped up knee, let alone practice medicine. She knows nothing about the process of arthritis or the immune system and its relation to autoimmune disease..She's a prescription pad factory, a shot hocker, not a healer and spends her time catering lunch for her big pharma reps
