The initial call to make a new patient appointment, I had received respect, courtesy, professionalism, etc etc. Dr. Krishnan has an extremely good bed side manner. He's very intelligent, but, can come down to my level to assure I understand his interpretations relating to my conditions, his recommendations to the treatments, etc etc. Dr. Krishnan is a rare breed. What I mean exactly, is he is one of a kind. One of the several reasons why is his ability to make me laugh & understand what I have.

Dr. Krishnan was a Godsend to me after going to Barnes-West. Dr. Krishnan listens and doesn't treat you like a number. You are his patient with a name. I've been with this Dr. for 4yrs. He's kind andsincere and listens to what pain or discomfort you have. His staff is amazing too. They listen and relay the messages to the Dr. and they call you back!!! Dr K just hand you pills. He makes sure the meds he gives you are the ones he wants to try first, a lower dose. I admire him and his staff

I met Dr Krishnan because the prior doctor left the clinic that I had been referred to. I take my knowledge of my conditions and needs very seriously and seek out information in all ways. I find that if my doctor isn't willing to answer my questions then I seek out another doctor. I also find that a doctor has to know me and my limits just as much as I know his and neither of us should feel concerned in expressing these. That being said I have NEVER had a better doctor than Dr. Krishnan.

Have seen him for 3yrs and 3 yrs to long he is not thourgh he tells you how you feel and charges 1890.00 for drug tests i think he is a crook a carpetbagger of health care. He can feel for you but can not reach you. Beware if you need a great dr.i do not think you will find it with him.his staff is also very arrogant and rude.his nurse practitioner is the only reason i stayed as long as i did. He also spys on the people in waiting room becareful what you talk about.
