Dr. Lakshmi Krishnamurthi has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

One of the Top 5 Best Endocrinologist in Memphis and I should know

Very knowledgeable, board certified and very thorough with her assessment of your health, but you may have to wait. She is old school, writes a whole page of history, evaluates you treatment closely and will lay down the law with your meds, and if you need to loose weight. Dr. Krishna still manages to have a great bedside manner. I like her office staff, but at times 1 of them is visibly stressed. The other MA is fast and friendly. I have been to many endocrinologists in this city, and sometimes have been called the wrong TSH, with subsequent negative medication & health repercussion. The wheels may turn a little slowly at this office due to the number of patients, and her face-to-face time, but it is well worth it if you want superb care.
WTH? Dont Do IT.

Youre going to read reviews about how thorough she is well let me tell you that part is truth.. however the other 20 people waiting in the cramped lobby for over 3 hours arent so happy if you arent first appointment. After so much aggravation with the horrible staff i had enough. last straw was when she prescribed androgel to me for low T.. I reported to her on 2 visits i was having some kind of reaction and i was having heart palpitations every time i used it. she laughed at me and stated " it doesnt do that, you dont know how it works" I stopped taking it on my own regardless of her recommendation... 6 month later i see stories on tv of people suffering heart attacks from this garbage and it was banned. nice research there lady... and maybe you should listen to your patients.. they might know a little something as well.

I like Dr. Krish - she is very thorough but her staff is very disorganized it seems - I had an email confirmation of an appointment on a Sunday and I showed up to a closed office..i was called on a thursday by her office with no message - i called back 3 times and no callback to me - the next day the office girl stated her computer system did that and then proceeded to blame me for the mixup stating she and 2 other staff had tried to contact me (really?)- it was 1 call with no message. they also claimed i didnt show up for 2 previous appts i never scheduled with them nor did they call me or email me about any of them - they are hopeless and costing Dr krish patients. Dont even think about getting an appointment thats not the first of the day or you will wait... a very long time - all that aside Dr Krish is an awesome Endocrinologist and very thorough with her interactions of patients and courteous but the time really adds up for those waiting. she is trying to improve though... i think it goes against her grain to rush her practice.
