Ratings for Dr. Krishna B. Topalli
I have been seeing Dr. topalli for over 3 years now & have had very professional exams & procedures & always asks during the procedure if I'm doing ok, I will say he us not going to just give you meds. Until he figures out what really is wrong with u. U thought I had fibromyalgia, well I do but I have DDD severe arthritis,along with the Fibro . Because of his thoroughness he found out what is really wrong with me & I'm still in pain but I am being managed to a point where at 62 I can function. Prior to seeing him there were many days I could not function. The pain is still there , u can't heal arthritis & I'm bone to bone in several discs & being ate up w/ arthritis. He has managed my pain w/out a lot if meds & if I'm in extra pain us always available for Ny thing I need to help alleviate the pain. I will agree sometimes u have a long wait but people in severe pain have alit if questions & he has always taken time to answer my questions ,so I feel when I wait he's helping someone like I was 3 years ago......
First visit for chronic back pain related to an injury down range and the doctor dOesnt even care to look at X-ray or MRI results before recommending a procedure that requires 3-4 visits. No preprocedure information given about what to expect and on day of doctor is, of course, running over 1 hour behind. I can handle his rude and nonexistent bedside manner, I can even handle running behind on time but I have a very hard time with feeling like I am only a tool for this doctor to bilk my insurance company. Place feels fraudulent, billing practices are disconcerting and overall NOT what I am looking for in dealing with my chronic pain. I will be trying to get my insurance to send me elsewhere! I wouldn't even waste your time here.

hE IS ALWAYS LATE SOMETIMES OVER AN HOUR. HE WILL ANSWER HIS PHONE WHILE IN THE ROOM WITH YOU. HE HAS DISIPLINED STAFF IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. ITS SAD WE ARE THERE BECAUSE WE NEED HELP AND I FEEL HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF IT. SOMEONE SHOULD CHECK INTO HIM. HE IS THE WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN AND IM TRYING TO FIND A NEW ONE. STAY AWAY FROM HIM!
The staff is very friendly & seems to make sure your comfortable but knowledge of insurances and what can and can not be issued is a problem. The doctor is nice but again does not seem to know his insurances his customers have. He written me prescriptions that my insurance did not cover and went in pain for weeks because either he or his staff failed to properly follow procedure for my insurance. I have called multiple times for them yo change my meds or write a new one and has NEVER been done. The doc will no longer give me pin meds because my dentist gave me meds and I filled the prescription. Not suppose to get pain meds from ANY other doctor but his office or he left me with NONE.
Pros: He was mostly understanding when the pain of a procedure compromised my emotional stability. Cons:-I had a procedure where the door was left open for a period of time with me exposed. The nurses were entirely too concerned with their lunch order when they were attempting to prep me. -I waited in the procedure room 'prepped' for quite some time. It was an extremely uncomfortable position to stay in. -I didn't get a warning before the Doctor stuck me with a needle. -They didn't drape a lead blanket over the rest of my body for the x-rays. -I didn't find out all of my prescriptions until I went to the pharmacy to pick them up. -I tried to tell him there were medications he listed as wanting me to try that did not agree with me in multiple aspects, he sent them to the pharmacy anyway. -In general, he didn't seem to ask enough, or the right, questions about my pain. I mentioned what someone else thought it might be and he ran with it without exploring an alternative.
