in Ocala, FL |
Dr.Chitumalla is very knowledgeable and I trust his judgement. I also find him compassionate and he listens to me patiently even if i repeat the same thing over and over again. I'd definitely recommend him to my friends.
Ocala, FL |
Fired me as a patient because I questioned whether he had a financial interest in DaVita Dialysis Center in the same building with his office. He was pushing dialysis the last 2 visits and my kidneys are improving. He had a handful of papers that he literally threw on the exam table and acted like a 2-year-old having a tantrum. Just because he has an MD degree does not negate the fact that I deserve respect and answers to my questions.
