  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One of the least knowledgeable physicians I have ever encountered

This physician goes by the name "Dr. Raj," so it's difficult to find him. One of his jobs is covering nursing home patients. If he is assigned to take care of your relative or friend, ask for a different doctor. In my opinion, he should not be allowed to treat patients.

Pleasantly Confused

Dr. Kolanuvada's understanding of physiology is appalling. After misdiagnosing me due to his seriously limited understanding of CRPS, I explained to him how and why I had already been diagnosed with CRPS...he listened carefully, realized that he had made a gross error, and responded with a smile, "...of course, that is simply another way of looking at it..." UNBELIEVABLE. During my second visit, which was also my last, he had forgotten that I had already been correctly diagnosed by competant physicians, and he attempted to incorrectly diagnose my symptoms once again, as though we had never met, demonstrating that he had learned nothing from our previous meeting. As far as his demeanor, Dr. Kolanuvada has a pleasant manner, but his medical acumen is seriously lacking; unfortunately, the most apt description of my assessment of this man is "a smiling imbecile."

MADE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE BY GOING TO HIM! Notice how I wrote in all CAPS! Wait time is 3-4 hours normal, Nurses are SUPER RUDE, Front DESK tells you one thing, others will tell you another! The doctor doesnt even come and check on his patiend, send his little students (Different ones everytime), so basically you end up repeating the same thing over and over again. They should all be fired, and be miserable!
