27/07/13 1 1 1 1 Incompetent is an understatement. Her staff was rude and didn't care about me or my feelings in the slightest and the doctor herself is terrible. I'm not even sure how she managed to obtain a medical license. I went to see her because i was negative side effects to a medication she prescribed. She told me that it was impossible i was having those side effects and tried to send me on my way. I got upset and she got nasty with me. This doctor is awful and incapable of performing her basic duties as a primary care physician. This doctor doesn't care about her patients and should not be allowed to practice medicine.

14/12/12 1 3 1 3 Very greedy to get Insurance money. Recommends a lot of tests and make you go to see her to get the results so that She can charge Insurance companies for the visit. For the re-visit to get results, though not needed they will check the vitals i.e, Blood Pressure, pulse, weight etc.

22/08/12 4 2 1 1 This doctor wasn't able to do the diagonosis of cysts for 6 months even after doing the annual checkup and all blood tests. According to her, the unbearable abdomainal pain was just a muscle cramp and didn't prescribe an ultrasound. Had she diagnoised the problem 6 months ago, I won't have to go through the major surgery and complications of carrying a cyst of 10 cm. I'll never recommend this doctor to anyone who has any slight complication. It is a big risk to put your life on her hands.

05/04/12 4 5 5 5 My wife and I went there for our immigration medical check ups and everything went through very smoothly. The evaluation was complete in a few days and the staff also followed up with our insurance to get us a refund. We would definitely recommend this doctor for the USCIS medical examinations.  Respond

23/03/12 5 3 5 5 I went for Immigration check up she took her time and investigated very well. Initially they said Insurance will not pay for the immigration hence I paid $390 for myself and my wife to my surprise they gave me a call back after two months and said your check for $390 is ready since your insurance paid for it. I was really happy with their service

15/02/12 3 1 2 1 For Two ppl Immigration check up costed 800$ @ Saritha Regulapati's place. I am not sure if I am the only one that got cheated. I enquired with other friends they are charged 150 per person. I m not sure if this is not cheating what else can be called as cheating. No co-ordination between the people who answer on the telephone and who are available at the time of visit. Doctor doesn't want to discuss about billing. I have been told they would bill the insurance and they never got back to me. It's been couple of months.

20/12/11 1 2 2 2 Like one more person stated in this review list. I went for imm test and I was also cheated, I was told one price and at the end they didnt charge anything to insurance and gave me a big bill. Even though I had vaccination history they have redone to charge me. They apparently had no answers when questioned. The billing department answers were misleading and ambiguous. They sure knew they were cheating ppl. Indians are treated bad everywhere by Fellow Indians. This is proven here once again. I have visited the doc's office for 5 times so far and I still do not have my report in hand.The other reviews written might be from the staff itself. People who charge more atleast get the work done well before time but this is not the case here. Use ur best judgement and decide if you want a big hole in ur wallet. Personally I wudnt suggest this doc. Please beware

05/11/11 2 2 2 2 I have been to this place for getting my immigration related health checkup. I enquired many other doctors and found Dr Sarita to be suspiciously reasonable. I thought I will be saving good amount of money. I was totally wrong. The staff cheated me by saying it only costs 199 and few 10 bucks for vaccines but it came to more than 300 bucks Which is expensive than the other doctorts. This is one way of cheating I guess.

22/04/11 5 4 5 5 The Doctor is very patient and accessible during all hours of the day. She gives you her full attention and is very through in her investigation. She is conservative in her approach however unlike other primary care physicians, does not drag her feet when she feels something requires the attention of a specialist. she has a very serene and calm personna that evokes confidence. Unique thing that i experienced was that on several occasions she refused to let me pay my co-pay because she said it was a follow up visit or it was for something small that didn't require payment. Where do you find such doctors now a days ?

02/08/10 5 5 5 5 She is the, the best doctor I have met until now. She has great patience. She takes all her time and effort in curing the patients. From all my experience with her, she is not business minded at all. She takes good care of her patients. One very good thing with her and not with other docs is that she has all her time for the patients. If you call her for any suggestion, she would definitely get back asap. She doesn't wait long. Whatever, she is the bestest. Lucky to have her.

25/04/08 5 5 5 5 Its the kind of Doc whom every patient would love to visit. She has so much patience and motivates the patient in such a way that half the disease is cured during the time she spends in trying to know every detail abt the patient.I personally liked her alot , her way of approach is excellent.Hope she continues with this throughout .. All the very best to her.  Respond

20/02/07 5 5 5 I was apprehensive initially, but was really comfortable after she listened to me, and offered various diagnostics. Although her spoken English is not too American, she makes it up with her quality analysis. I tremondously benefited from her NO RUSH procedure and carefully analysing and suggesting the best treatments I could get. I definitely recommend her.  Respond
