I am currently looking for a different doctor but it takes so long to get into a specialist. She never seems to care about me and spend less than 5 minutes with me. It was a waste of my time and the only reason I didn't wait and go to someone else is because I was about to be out of my prescription and was told I had to have an appointment before they would refill it for me. I was told I either had to come in at 7:25 am (which the ladies at the front wouldn't let me check in because they "don't open until 7:30") or I could wait until the middle of May for the next available appointment. I have had co-workers ask for recommendations for an endocrinologist and I can't in good faith recommend Dr. Challagulla.

The doctor was friendly, knowledgeable and I was pleased she had read and reviewed my Medical Records prior to appointment. I consider this was one of my most serious appointments in my last 10 years due to its urgency of getting a management endocrinology program going for myself. I would say that I think she a proactive Doctor and pray that it's true. Only time will dictate this and how well things are managed and if plans are made to increase the quality of my life and not create more pain.

This provider spent less than 5-minutes in the room with me. She explained nothing as to what could be causing my prolactin level to be elevated and just told me the usual "follow-up in six months". It was a complete waste of time and money. Although nice, this provider did nothing to enhance my health care.

very nice however in my mind I felt she didn't discuss my thyroid issues as much as I thought we would it seems the focus was more on my family history of diabetes (which I know is important) not the issues I currently had experienced with my thyroid.

this was the first time I have had a real understanding of thyroid nodules. my previous endocrinologist didn't take the time to show me ultrasounds or explain it like this doctor did. she is excellent and very calming. I am so happy I found her!
