I have been going to Dr. Appareddy for years and have been very satisfied. She has been very helpful to me. The woman who handles appointments has always been very friendly and helpful.
The office is very easy to get to and parking is FREE and always plentiful.
I would not continue to see Dr. Appareddy if I did not have confidence in her.
I am not going to refer my family and friends here. I just wasn't impressed at all. Whenever I called for an appointment, the staff made me feel stupid for even calling. Evidentally the doctor will not work with people who has been prescribed medication by another doctor in the past, and is not willing to work with you to help you find the right medication and treatments, just dismisses you as though this isn't her profession. I was in dire need of a physician and was turned away cold. If this is the way the office conducts buisness and treats their patients I am glad to find it out up front. Shame on them, physician heal thyself!

I showed up on time for my appointment, but they didn't even have the decency to respect my schedule. They showed up over an hour late for my appointment, and by then I was ready to leave instead of spending my entire day waiting for them. They seemed like they were extremely irritated to be at work, and that they couldn't wait for me to leave. They didn't seem to want to help anyone. They never made any effort to follow up with me after my visit and it made me feel very unimportant. I know they see a lot of patients, but when you say you're going to follow up, you should. This provider has no helpful information available online, apart from their address and phone number. They just have a basic listings page. They almost always cancel my appointment last minute, and I end up having to rearrange my entire schedule. I really wish they were more reliable. I WAS TOLD I WAS NOT IMPORTANT AND SHE HAD OTHER PEOPLE WAITING IN LINE TO BE SEEN BY HER! THIS "DR" IS RUDE AND TOLD ME HER TIME CAME BEFORE ANY OTHERS! SHE WILL NOT LISTEN TO WHAT I OR OTHERS TRY TO SAY TO HER AND WILL TALK OVER YOU IF YOU EVEN TRY TO SPEAK! IF I WAS NOT SUICIDAL BEFORE SEEING HER - I AM MOST DEFINITELY NOW!!!!! HER ONLY HELP IS IN PUSHING PEOPLE FARTHER INTO DEPRESSION THAN THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD EVEN REACH!!!!!! DO NOT / DO NOT / DO NOT RECOMMEND HER AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you going to visit this provider again?
Without a doubt!
Were you able to relax during your appointment?
Yes
