Patient Comments (3)
Malden, MA |
I've been seeing Dr. Krishna for 5 years. I've been symptom free since I've been getting allergy shots. No need to take any over the counter drugs for seasonal allergies and I no longer need an inhaler for my asthma.
She made us wait for over 1.5 hours before she came into our scheduled appointment. My son turned out to be allergic to many things, so we were certainly overwhelmed. She rushed through all of the details and then sent us on our way. I called a couple of weeks later with a couple of follow-up questions because my son was not getting better, she brushed my concerns off as if they were insignificant and/or not her job. Overall, her bedside manner is terrible and I won't recommend her.

She was great at giving more information, explaining what causes allergies and how to best deal with them.
