What People Say About Dr. Vijay-Kumar Rekhala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The tough love approach helped initially, but after a while, it was pointless. All he wants to hear is that you are doing fine. If another doctor or professional questions anything he says, he gets angry, makes angry phone calls, demands to see their credentials, etc. And don't EVER ask him to help fill out any paperwork, even if it's about medication he prescribed.
