Very professional, no-nonsense specialist. She was highly recommended by my child's pediatrician and the allergy evaluation was well worth it.

My experience with Dr. Krishna was very positive. Good service and thorough explanations. She never rushed me and was very patient even with my many questions regarding my condition. I am really happy with my care and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Very deceptive when it comes to billing. She pushes cluster shots and requires you take a breathing test in between the shots which she then bills you for as it is not a part of the shot. Very deceptive. I asked up front about charges and this was never mentioned to me. They do not respect their patients time either. Always running behind. Employees walk in 15-20 minutes late.

I was referred to Dr.Krishna by my PCP however, I am very displeased with the way they handled my condition. I have had some severe allergic reactions for about 2 months now. I called them with an urgent reaction one day & they did not call me back until 3 days later. I went in for a Patch test & when i got there, i was told they do not do patch tests on that day so i had to come back. They also refused to take me for the next test cos i had to wait for insurance to pay them, so unprofessional.

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.
