Ratings for Dr. Keerti Gurushanthaiah
First know that this rating is not about Dr. G specifically, it is about the front office. I never actually got to meet the doctor (who came very highly recommended by a friend). I showed up for my 2pm appointment (which I left work for) and the receptionist looked at me like I was crazy and tells me the doctor isn't in and that my appt was cancelled. I asked why I didn't get notified and she rudely tells me I was left a message last week (which was not the case). Beyond rude. No offer to have me see another doctor and no offer to rebook me for the next available appt. She basically just looked at me like I was bothering her and she expected me to leave. When I asked if another doctor could see me instead she rudely said "no all our doctors are busy and booked". Again no offer to reschedule my appt.
The wait times used to be much longer, but have gotten better. She delivered both of my kids. Very knowledgeable, but still personable. Takes the time to answer questions and was very supportive throughout my entire pregnancy. Highly recommend her. Best obgyn I have ever seen. Also, all of the OBs in the practice are women so you will have a woman no matter who is on call.
This is my first official complaint letter, ever. Dr. Guru was the on-call doctor when I went into labor with my second child. After 4+ hrs of pushing, she came in, and said (and I quote): For all the pushing you are doing, you aren't doing anything. So, with that encouragement, I decided to have my second c-section. All my life, I have taken excellent care of myself (diet and exercise). Dr. Guru couldn't take the time to reattach my ab muscles and now I have a permanent pooch of a stomach. It's disgusting. I still workout, I still do crunches/ab work. But no matter of anything besides going in and having major surgery that will cost me out of pocket about $10,000 to correct what she wouldn't take care of in 20 minutes has ruined my overall health. Doctors are supposed to improve our lives. I would seriously regard her as dangerous to any future mothers health. Best of luck to her patients.
Dr. Guru is amazing! She has been my gynocologist for seven years and has always been so friendly and helpful. I am apprehensive to see anybody else. She has helped me with my endometriosis, and has always talked to me like an adult without any judgement since I first started seeing her at the age of 17. She is efficient, and sharp. Everything anyone could want in an OBGYN. My mother and I are both patients of hers and adore her and her staff.
Dr. Gurushanthaiah was my consulting M.D. during a hospital stay for a uterine infection. I had just given birth to my first child the previous week and was admitted a second time to the hospital to be treated with I.V. antibiotics. I'm terrified about the safety of my breastfeeding newborn, terribly sleep deprived having my vitals taken regularly through the night and breast-feeding every 2 hours. All I want to know is when I can go home. My husband and I asked for a timeline and received an unfeeling, cold LECTURE on uncooperative patient behavior. And NO ANSWER!! At discharge it was finally revealed to us that the requirement was that I be fever free for 48 hours. Why could she not have just told me this and eased my fear of the unknown. The only positive comment I have is: when she was the on-call M.D. (definitely not my choice), she safely delivered my second child by VBAC and performed a perfect episiotomy. She was completely cold & disappeared instantly after delivery.
