Ratings for Dr. Geetha B. Kandimala
I went to her for a lot of numbness and motor skill problems. When I expressed that my right arm was numb for 4 days, she asked if I knew what numbness what bc im too young for that. I had symptoms of MS, so she did blood work, the blood work confirmed it, but she said that I'm a weird patient bc I'm "too young for MS" she decides to do a spinal tap in the office, after sticking my with the same needle 7 times, she could not draw and spinal fluid, then yelled at me that it's my fault she couldn't do the procedure. If you want to be dismissed and yelled at, she's the doctor for you.
Was having several issues finally got carpal tunnel test and was told it was negative and nothing was wrong with me and dismissed me. Immediately I got a second opinion and what do ya know "severe carpal tunnel in both hands"! Was not impressed AT ALL. Staff was friendly tho!
I am so pleased that Dr Kandemala is my neurologist. I have found her to be very caring and she always takes the time to be very thorough in her evaluation and questions. She is always willing to explain anything I don't understand. I had already started CPAP therapy before seeing her, but she recommended that we test my O2 saturation at night. Because of that the test showed that my oxygen saturation was dropping at night to the point of potential damage to organs. Thanks to her I am on oxygen supplementation at night and am no longer in danger. I highly recommend her.
After the first visit, I too thought she was caring and intelligent. However, the next couple of visits showed that she did NOT listen and jumped to conclusios. She was unsupportive and hasty in her decisions. Also, she failed to communicate professionally with me concerning several decisions that she made in regards to my health. Personally, I have been extremely disappointed and unfairly treated.
