Please take your time and find another provider. I have had nothing but bad luck from scripts not being called in to lost laboratory results. Dr. Achanta is either too busy or doesn't care about the care of her patients. Does not spend enough time and when she tells you something she forgets that she told it to you or just doesn't do what she says. Take my word not worth it and will still charge your provider for doing nothing. I am in the process of making complains to CMS.

The doctor kept answering the phone while doing my pap smear exam, so unprofessional. I had very bad experience with the receptionist. They submitted the wrong code to Quest Diagnostic so that I got 3 bills from them. I called in to ask for a re submission, but few weeks later I still receiving the same bill with no corrections. I would never recommend this doctor to any of my friend.

I had a bad experience with the receptionist/nurse who took my blood pressure. The first reading she reported was 136/85 and so I requested the doctor for a second reading. This time I carefully looked at the monitor after the test was complete and the display showed 124/85 however the nurse reported to the doctor a higher number which the doctor said was in the 130's and I asked the receptionist and she maintains it was more than 130. So I cannot trust this practice anymore.
