The physician is excellent and I have referred several friends to him for their liver problems and he was also great with them.

Dr. Rachakonda and his staff have been exceptionally caring as I've dealt with a very painful physical condition over the last few months. They have been very responsive with return calls when I've had questions, and and also have been flexible and willing to fit me in for short notice appointments when I was dealing with a lot of pain. The pain I was in was having a tremendous impact on every aspect of my life, including even trying to sleep, but the treatment path Dr. Rachakonda has set me on seems to be working well, so hopefully of course that continues, and I couldn't possibly say enough about how thankful I am to him and his staff.

I really thought this doctor showed respect and was very caring. This was my first visit so we shall see if everything is carried through like promised. Also, I call in February for this appointment in July. I think that was way too long to wait.

June 22, 2017

Dr. Rachanconda was very polite and he answered all the questions I had and explained things very clearly. He also seems to have a very caring nature. I really liked him.
