OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

4.7out of 5
  • November 11, 2022

    Dr Chalasani was wonderful! She was thorough and made me feel valued as a patient. I've never had an OB do a whole assessment on me so that was great! One thing I just want to note is that I asked the MA/nurse (I'm not sure her title) not to tell me my weight. I asked this because I am recovering from anorexia and seeing my weight in recovery can be a big trigger for me. She respected my wish and didn't tell me, however she wrote it nice and big on a post-it note and set it right in front of me in the room which kind of defeated the purpose and has made today a bit challenging for me. I know she probably thought nothing of it but I think maybe this is something to think about as many women suffer from eating disorders.

  • November 11, 2022

    Practice is very disorganized and takes a long time to get seen.

  • November 11, 2022

    Dr Chalasani has been great throughout the whole process

  • November 10, 2022

    Doctor and nurse were friendly. I was a little late, but they didn’t make me feel rushed.

  • November 8, 2022

    Everything felt rushed and I thought the MA/nurse was unnecessarily annoyed with me for not ummediately leaving the exam room when I thought the doctor was coming back to advise me. Then after the ultrasound she just said "everything is fine you can go."

  • November 5, 2022

    Dr. Chalasani is an awesome obgyn! She is compassionate, a good listener, very detailed in checking me up for my annual physical. I feel at peace after I talked and saw her.
