Ineffective Communication Skills

Dr. Sastry is difficult to communicate with since she is more interested in telling you her opinion rather than listening to you. You have to actually deliberately stop her from talking by interrupting in order to make your point or give her key medical information. Conversations with her are unhelpful, chaotic, and do not give you confidence from a medical perspective.

Balanced approach

My husband and I don't like taking medications unless absolutely necessary. Dr. Sastry understands this and is open to our exploring alternative methods of controlling cholesterol and bone density. Although she explains her medical perspective, she respects our opinion to use herbs and vitamins.
