Dr. Atluru could not even return my calls to discuss my daughters MRI results. Never notified me what we’re the next steps as far as treatment. Impossible to get in touch with. No communication whatsoever. I will never go back to her again. Extremely disappointed.

Do Not bother bringing your child to this office unless you are willing to wait AT LEAST 1 hour before being seen by the assistant. After waiting an hour, the assistant informed me AGAIN that the Dr. would be with me soon. EVERYONE’S time is important which is why I arranged my own day so that I could get to this appointment on time. It is completely UNACCEPTABLE AND DISRESPECTFUL to leave patients waiting for an HOUR (or more). I got up and left without being seen today. Will NOT be returning!

I saw her for 18 years. She found the only drug combination that worked. Showed me research regarding various options. When I travelled from another state made me the last appointment. I did recommend her to my patients later.

Not good. She does not return your phone calls on time and I didn't find her to be concerned with my son's ADHD.
