Dr. Sri Krishna K Mukkamala has the following 2 specialties
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Dr. Mukkamala and his whole staff from the front reception and nurses were truly fantastic. They immediately set me up for a same day appointment when they heard about my symptoms. My wait time was the least I have ever had at a retinal specialist. He was very professional and spent more time explaining things to me than any type of doctor in the past. Best of all, he fixed my retinal detachment when a previous doctor could not
I found Dr. Mukkamala to have a perfect combination of kindness and skill. He was confident about my eye problem and took time to explain the nature of my issue and the surgery needed to fix it. The staff was very efficient at organizing my surgery and with Dr. Mukkamala's expertise, I had a fantastic outcome.
I was sent to Dr. Mukkamala with a detached retina on a late Tuesday afternoon in Marietta. I didn't even think they would be there since I got there so late but low and behold they were. I was given all the information of my condition and what to expect in the surgery for the next morning and was put totally at ease. I have never seen a staff in all 3 locations that I had to go to ( pre-op visit, actual surgery facility, and post-op location) that was as friendly and kind and professional as was Dr. Mukkamala and his team. Absolutely beyond words. I thank him and his staff from the bottom of my heart for the kindness and care that they took in me. Five stars is not enough. Thank you all again so very much.
Dr. Mukkamala was the most thorough physician I have ever met. From the time he introduced himself, he was compassionate and listened to my concerns. He reviewed every aspect of my health and eye though I was only there for a retinal concern. He explained in detail the nature of my condition and its treatment. I was very satisfied with his care .
