Dr.Challagulla was very professional, kind and considerate. She immediately made me feel like family and that is hard to come by. She asked questions regarding my symptoms and proceeded to explain my condition. I also appreciate how proactive she was in ordering the appropriate labs to confirm her suspicions and she was very considerate about a personal situation of mine. I can't thank her enough for being such a great help that day. I'll definitely be letting others know of my experience with her.
