Dr. Sailaja C Nandipati has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Over Two Hour Wait Times, Rude Staff

The only reason doctors like Dr. Nandipati are still booked is because we cannot get specialists to practice in Charles County and no one wants to do the two hour commute to see another practitioner elsewhere. Expect 2 or more hours waiting for your appointment. She then leaves you in the middle of the exam for another 20+ minutes to speak to her husband, take phone calls, talk to other patients, etc. It is extremely frustrating when you have already waiting over two hours to see her and she walks out of the exam and you sit there waiting all over again. Her staff is the rudest I have come across. Don't expect to get anything done over the phone, even making appointments, if they actually answer the phones. If you cancel for any reason they will ban you from the office forever. Therefore you have to go see her even when ill. We really need to do something about getting more doctors and specialists (and especially better educated ones) in this area!
