I forgot my mask for the first time ever after 16 months of pandemic. I was told by an employee in scrubs exiting the building at the same time I was approaching the door that it was ok and I could just get a mask when I went in the office. Once I arrived at Dr Vandana's office, I immediately told the front office staff that I'd forgotten my mask. I was told that I'd have to go across the street to a convenience store to buy one! I am in utter disbelief about this cheapness. Clearly other offices in the building aren't doing this based on my encounter with the employee. Ironic since when I visited my mom in the cancer ward at MGH you arent even allowed to bring in your own mask! You must wear the *one that is provided to you by the medical facility* in order to enter the building. To me this business policy is cheaply prioritizing cost cutting over providing good care.

Dr Krishna does not care to spend time with her patients. I felt like she was just interested in charging me, and getting me in and out very rushed. Was very unhelpful when wanting to share documents with another provider, saying it would take 2-4 weeks to fax over a single page.. no care for my well-being. For my first treatment, I went twice to find out it wasn’t ready when I arrived, having to push back multiple times (even after calling to confirm that it was ready).

Practice is OK - billing is a NIGHTMARE with this doc. BEWARE. Had seen her for roughly 4 years for ongoing allergy treatment- now I’m in a constant battle between her billing staff and my insurance. My insurance pays, calls their office, says it’s all set - then I get calls from the office saying I still owe! I’ve been double billed countless times - I have to review invoices like a hawk. I haven’t been to see her in years and I’m still getting hit with new charges!??? Save yourself the trouble and go somewhere else - I’ve never had this level of difficulty with any other doctor.

I had the best experience with Dr. Krishna. Sure, the wait times were a little long, but that's because she's a popular physician. I've been recommended to her by three of my doctors, and I haven't been disappointed. I will be sending my kids to her once they are a little older. Her COVID precautions are awesome as well and feel very safe.

I saw Dr. Krishna through the recommendation of my primary care physician, and wow -- she's one of the best doctors I have been to. The office is bright and comfy, the staff are kind, and she takes the time to explain everything with great detail. She cares about her patients in a way most doctors don't. The best part is, since seeing her and getting started on shots, I haven't had allergy symptoms in months! My allergies used to be horrible, I could hardly breathe, but now I feel like a new person again. I cannot thank Dr. Krishna and her office enough. Very worth the recommendation.

Not Recommended - terrible bedside manner from Dr. Krishna. Half the job of being a doctor is listening to the patient and being sympathetic, which is something very much lacking at this office. Would not recommend.

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.

Danvers – Apr 18, 2018
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.
