This was my first appointment with this doctor, and I was very pleased with him. He was already familiar with my history and showed genuine interest in my welfare.

Dr Rachakonda is very nice. He listens, explains things in simple terms and takes asmuch time as needed talking with us. I wish he wasn't moving to another office which will be very inconvenient for us to get there.

Doctor was well prepared and knew subject matter. He addressed my concerns and came up with a very good game plan to follow up.

The overall visit was fine. They are quite busy and do a lot of patients. They probably could use more support staff. The Dr was awesome. It was nice to sit down with him and just talk. He cares about his patients, it shows!
