every time i have seen dr. challagula since my first appt, she has spent less and less time with me. This time, i believe she was only in the exam room for less than 2 min.i The resident was in there for maybe 5 min and most of that was spent enter ng things into the computer. She shows no regard for the symptoms I try to discuss with her. Wgen my labs show that my hypothyroidism isn\'t being controlled, all she ever does is increase the same medication. She does not draw additional labs or try a combination of meds. When i attempt to discuss anything, she dismisses me. This visit and the one before, i saw a resident or fellow first and then saw her. The resident would tell me one thing and then the doctor would change that. I\'m getting ready to have bariatric surgery and was very concerned that i would not absorb my medication well enough. Tge resident told me they would follow me "closely" as soon as i had the surgery. But, the doctor just case in and said they would see me in 4 months. Then when i got to check out, the clerk told me that the doctor set my next appt with a NP. I wish i could change to another doctor, but i know that requires a referral and i don\'t want to have to ask this doctor for that.

I sent a message to this doctor on April 16th. I had a procedure done this day and had concerns for her to help me out. A nurse replied back right away telling me within 48hrs the doctor will get back to me. Never heard anything from her. Sent her another message about some side effects I was having and my mental health I was concerned about. I then called her to see if I could get to her faster. The person on the phone also said 48hours. Friday April 26th at 12:55pm I made an appt to see her at 1:20pm that afternoon so I could talk to her cause she was not getting back to me. This is very frustrating I am going to have to pay for an appt I should not of had to make to talk to her. What\'s the point of MyChart or phone calls if my doc will not get back to me?!?!

We did not go thru my personal medical history. the Dr avoided my questions concerns about other potentially related conditions. I asked them a couple times but was not addressed. I learned nothing new. I waited two months to see her and am no closer to understanding what\'s wrong. The Dr that referred me said that hopefully we\'d get answers on a few things. The Dr was very pinpoint and didn\'t want to discuss anything else.

Provider made the appointment seem worthless... I was told by my doctor that a bx was need to rule out the possibility of serious complications. After waiting two months, and worrying about the procedure, this provider acted nonchalantly and I felt blown off, and that the time waiting and worrying caused stress; also not to count the cost and travel to facilities only to be told to come back NEXT February to check and see if there is any change? Hope it isn\'t ANYTHING.
