Dr Budharaju is so nice as well as very good at what he does. His office staff are very nice however I am very partial to Stephanie. She is so kind and goes out of her way to help the patients. I highly recommend this office.

I was not impressed with the doctor or his staff. We were there for my father's first appt. The dr. recommended insulin. The instructions, supplies, advice, etc. were explained quickly and not clearly. The info was overwhelming for me and even more so for my father. We were shuffled from one office to another repeatedly. We'll find a different doctor that has a system in place to educate the patients regarding diet, how to use medication, where to attend class on diabetes.

My experience with Dr Budharaju was a GOOD one. However, my complaints are about his staff. On MULTIPLE occasions I have been on hold for an avg of 20-30 mins. My calls were to schedule an appt for a procedure I needed, so I would wait. There were a couple of times that while on hold for nearly 30 mins I would be disconnected intentionally for their lunch hour. I also left msgs with staff but with no return calls. I did this specifically with the front desk clerk Crystal & for the billing dept.
