Ratings for Dr. Prameela D. Baddigam
She helped me get well after I had seen several other doctors that did not help me get well. I was very sick for a long time till she put me on the right medicine . I thank her and still see her till this day. She will work with you if you don't like your medicine.
I was referred to Dr. Baddigam from St. John Hospital during a very stressful time of my life. I was given limited, if any, theraputic counseling and instead she diagnosed me with a psychiatric disorder and proceeded to prescribe antipsychotic medications that made it nearly impossible for me to function. When I indicated the medications were not improving my "condition", she increased my dosage and sent me on my way. The events that occurred in the next few months put my family in complete turmoil, nearly cost me my career and ultimately could have ended my life. Diagnosing a person and heavily medicating them based on an isolated incident and with no knowledge of their medical history or current stressors is beyond irresponsible. Please do not visit this physician.
My opinion-this doctor is totally irresponsible & should have her license revoked. Her husband Basivi is no better. After experiencing extreme sleep deprivation for over 1 week, due to extreme stress in my life, I sought medical attention. She immediately placed me on many antipsychotic meds. The meds made my condition worse & gave me severe heart pains. EKG & ECG tests proved there was a problem & documented evidence of one med showed warnings of fatal heart arrythmias were common. This doctor involuntarily admitted me to a mental ward after I complained about the meds she placed me on were causing severe heart problems. I petitioned the court and was released. My personal & professional life were impeccable prior to her misdiagnosis. Now I have to live with this stigma & have issues getting health insurance coverage. Two yrs past her wrong diagnosis & I am on one antidepressant. Since getting off her prescribed meds, I have had no reoccurring heart, sleep or mental issues.
