It took me a while to warm up to him, and at first you don't think he's listening or doesn't care, but he will surprise you with some warm comments and reciting almost everything you've been through in the past year. He also let's me control my medications and let's me learn the hard nocks of doing such things.. eventually I follow his orders and start feeling much better :)

Current receptionist does not listen, can not spell, and shortens my name even though she has been repeatedly told not too. Dr Ratchapalli is great.

Unfortunately Dr Rasapalli’s current MOA and Nursing Assistant are argumentative and rude. The MOA has put me on hold then return to my line and started talking about a different patient, I have cut her off before anything too personal has been said but it alarms me that she can remember what line she just answered and doesn’t use simple methods such as saying the patient nsme before blabbing away. As others have said they blame others for everything thing. I have had to fight to get a fax resent when it wasn’t received by the pharmacy. I can’t imagine being so cold and arrogant toward a patient.

It feels like a waste of time every visit. As others have said he seems to not hear a word I say, in and out of the office with no help. The MOA is useless! She blames the lab and the pharmacy insists it's them not getting the faxes when it is their issue. Funny how now there's a sign saying they won't fax things now. She will NOT pass a simple message on to him, so she said he'd call me. I told her that evening I would be at work, but he called anyway and I missed it. You cannot leave a message either. So you have to go in to be rudely ignored again in person. I am done!

Excellent experience dealing with Dr Rachapalli, Nurse Jen and Debbie out front! My PSA and Ankylosing spondylitis is in remission. Thank you so much for giving me a great quality of life back again!

Pleasant and to the point. Initial exam extremely thorough and not rushed. Conservative in the use of medication in my opinion. Persistent in ongoing search for solutions. Accessible and has expanded to Nanaimo. Telephone usually hits voice mail but it is responded to in a timely manner.

Considering demand, very timely. Pleasant demeanor, but honest and to the point. Proactive as he can be, considering our ever-more-limited medical resources here across Canada but especially BC

The pharmacist at the Richmond Medical Pharmacy told me about this wonderful doctor. He has really helped me live with rheumatoid arthritis.

Very knowledgable and helpful. He is quick and to the point, but does listen when you talk and ask questions. Help me with a complicated medical issues and drugs that are hard to get.

I came to this doctor to confirm a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. After he made the diagnosis he told me that there was nothing he could do and told not to come back. Just go home and suffer. Heartless, impatient and lazy. I also have arthritis and I asked if I could use some of the facilities for arthritis therapy. I was told I didn't have the right type of arthritis and to get out.
