    How was your appointment with Dr. Challa?

    Dec 08, 2020
    Ive been seen by Dr. Challa for approx 9-10 years. After seeing a couple of doctors, (none addressing the problem btw) he was willing to admit me. Due to my diagnosis, i was extremely concerned. He listened to my concerns and addressed them as expected/needed. I didnt feel rushed, etc. This is the norm. Highly recommended.
