I would never refer dr chakrala to anyone. This clinic is so unprofessional. They just want to earn money on you. They charge copay for follow up appointment when you just go to know your reports. I have visited couple of times and always disappointed. I would change my clinic and suggest ppl to think before going to this clinic.
Dr. Chakrala is by far the most compassionate doctor I have ever known. She always takes the time to listen and understand my concerns and her bedside manner is amazing. You will never feel like "just another number" like so many other doctors can make you feel. She is good at what she does and will do everything in her power to assure that you receive everything you need and want to get out of your visit. Oh, and her staff is ALWAYS kind and helpful and contribute to a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I have changed my PCP & selected Dr Aruna as my new PCP. My wife and me visited last week, on very first visit she diagnose me very high blood sugar, immediatly she tested blood circulation and prescribed new medicine. Same with my wife she found her frozen shoulder and suggested do more excersise. office staff are very co operative.
I have been going to this doctor for more than 10 years now and absolutely love it! They make me feel so welcome and at ease definitely recommend this office/doctor to everyone who is looking for the best healthcare provider!
Doctor Chakrala is the best, very knowledgeable, solved my problem like that. I am very very happy with this office. Usually people never write reviews if they are happy 1 out of 100 patients who are not happy for some reason will write bad review, which is not fare to the office. So I thought of giving this review, which this office deserves.
Dr. Chakrala is very caring and listens patiently, and I always walkout feeling good. Her staff is very cordial and the office is clean with big visitor room. Her diagnosis, healthy advices and follow up keeping me healthy and active for past 14 years.
Very smart & intelligent doctor,passionate with work & compassionate with patients with full hearted generosity. The office staff also so nice that whenever we see them for medical visits,both me & my wife feel like vising our own family members. They all deserve more than FIVE STAR rattings in excellency & care for their patients with smile & courtesy.
Stay away from this doctor office... Only motive is to use our insurance
This doctor is unquestionably the best doctor I've seen so far. She was very quick in diagnosing my condition and cured me within a week. I'm very grateful to her.
I have been seeing Dr Chakrala for the last 4-5 years. As a personal physician myself (and her patient in this case), I can attest she is a very good doctor, and does take the time to listen to her patients, and my experience has always been positive. She cares about her patients, bottom line. With respect to managing office matters, her staff could be a bit more organized. But overall, not a lot of drama at the reception desk and I didnt seen any obvious blunders. Also, this physician also takes insurance, which should be a plus. I dont understand why people complain about their bills on these posts, lucky that they can even use their insurance coverage, otherwise its out of pocket, and thats not cheap, at least not in my opinion. So I think people need to be more understanding here about the business of medicine. Shes a great doctor, trying to survive in managed care, and also trying to make a difference to each of you. best, Mr test results.
Went to see Dr. Aruna Chakrala for my allergies. She recommended blood work needs to be done and as per our conversation, my lab results were supposed to be sent to my address or discussed over the phone. Waited almost 10 days and never heard anything from the doctor. Went to clinic to get my results and I was taken inside the patient cabin to explain about the results. Nothing major and I was charged for the lab results explanation. Her staff was even horrible. Money minded. You have to pay twice. Once the first visit and second time for lab result if any. Zero recommendation.
After I'd had my children in NYC, for many years I'd refused to visit a Dr. Until I found Dr. Chakrala , she listen, she help me with all my health issues. she is very friendly, she is the best Dr. in town her office is open 7 days a week what more do we ask for. And now she is my children physician.
I have gone to numerous doctors in various states. Many of them reccommend coming in for my lab results. I have gone in and found their explanation confusing and a waste of time. Some have also told me over the phone, which is by far the worst experience ever. I have seen many people on this reviews site complaining over a small copay and the doctor not giving results over the phone. I was afraid at first but after going in, Dr.Chakrala gave a very vivid explanation of all my results. She also guided me in management of my cholesterols and sugar. I highly reccomend this doctor.
This doctor is very understanding and she cared for my problem very well. I felt like I was talking to a friend and felt completely comfortable explaining my problems to her. Highly recommendable.
This doctor is all about money. She will not even discuss your lab results over the phone. She will make you come in so that she can bill insurance company. She will not even extend your regular medicine beyond three months unless you see her in office. She will not even recoomend you to nutritionist and act like she has all the knowldege. I would not recommend this doctor at all where money is the only priority.
They provided me with only one hand [ left ] MRI result. I have to call the lab again and asked them to call the doctor as I had MRI scan on both the hands. Then they asked me to pay the copay again to discuss the right hand report with doctor. After fighting with them at last when I asked to give me the report without discussion with doctor then they charged me some 50 cents for the report... Heights of cheapness...
Dr. Chakrala is an amazing doctor. She takes time to talk with me even if the office is busy. She even speaks with me over the phone when needed. Her diagnostics is very accurate. I'm glad I switched over to her services.
I went to see Dr. Aruna Chakrala after being with my pervious primary Doctor for Seven years. I have to say what a remarkable difference! I really felt Dr. Chakrala spent alot of time with and really listened to what i had to say.Her staff is very kinda,patient and willing to help you the best way that they can. I highly recommand her office.
Most pathetic staff - they're trained to make patients schedule appointments multiple times (even if everything can be taken care of in one go); it seems like this doctor is not to help patients, but only to run a business and make money!!!
Dr.Chakrala has by far the best practice in town. I read a review by Vandana and I was worried but after my visit I was very happy. The review I read was probably by a patient who had been charged a ten dollar vopay. The staff is excellent and very patient, though they do talk a lot. The doctor is thorough and very kind, but I see patients actingly cheaply and arguing over a ten dollar copay,which is a small amount for such great service. The patients are lucky that the staff and doctors are very patient, other offices would have called the police for the yelling by the patients. And the review by Vandana I'd pointless and stupid. Overall the best.
THE BEST DOCTOR IN THE TOWN. I highly recommend Dr. Chakrala to any one for health issues. Staff is very good and has very patience. For a small thing one patient made a big issue and I was surprised to see Dr. and the staff were very patient with this gentleman I feel sorry for the Doctor . Doesn't matter how much you do can not please every one, there will be one like this person in thousands.
I was referred to Dr. Chakrala by many people and after i visited her, i was very much satisfied. I like how walk-ins are available and you don't need to make an appt. The staff are satisfactory and my wait to see the doctor was appx. 20mins, but that's okay as i was very much happy with her diagnosis and my visit as a whole.
dr. chakrala, was very patient nd kind.she helped me get better very soon.she was able to diagnose me accurately where as my previous doctor wasnt able to treat me,i highly recommend her.
My Colleague told me they are not good. I still went there until i really knew they are poor. The Staff especially is bad. they keep talking. Don't listen to what we want to say.. put you on a long hold and then there is no one there.This has happened to me many times.. and I've decided to change my doctor. It's more than a week that i've been for a blood check up and they still don't have my results.. I've called them several times. She says " Please leave a voice msg we'll get back to you in the next 48 hrs"I am so annoyed right now.
All of the female doctors in this group are wonderful. I feel fortunate to have such great health care and concerned physicians.
I took an appointment with dr. chakrala and i was truly satisfied with her overwhelming evaluation of my problem. She is very caring towards the patient. She is a very good doctor!
I was very happy that I saw Dr. Chakrala. Her staff are very responsive and the doctor herself is very caring. I recommend her to anybody.
My wife & I had visited for the first time to this doctor for a general physical check up. As per the insurance plan this is 100% covered, as it is a preventive care. Now after 2 months after the visit I start getting these bills. My insurance was billed twice for a test by the lab with which this doctor deals with. There was a test that had to performed twice as there was not enough sample available the first time, this just one point that I am discussing. So back to the bill, When I call the billing department, they always say the concerned is not there , so I should leave my name & phone # and they will get back. Well as expected no one did. The amount is not big & I don't mind paying. But if they were not able to perform the analysis the first time why was the insurance company charged again. The pointcome back to health care/ and why even after insurance coverage health care becomes so expensive. After this issue ispoke to manypeople who mentioned about billing issues they had to deal with doctor. So first timers only if you are lucky would younot face billing issues. For me I sure to see more bills coming my way for test that were performed by the doctor. Best of luck to me.
DR. CHAKRALA AND HER ASSOCIATES ARE AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL PROFESSIONALS. I ADORE GOING TO THEIR OFFICE AND BEING CARED FOR BY A SPECTACULAR DOCTOR AND HER ASSOCIATES. GOD BLESS THEM.
THIS DOCTOR IS EXCELLENT. MY HUSBAND AND I WERE SEEN, HER MANNERISM, HER PROFESSIONALISM, HER WONDERFUL OFFICE, AND PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL STAFF WERE AWESOME. I LOVE THIS DOCTOR. MAY GOD BLESS HER.
