Ratings for Dr. R. Balakrishna
Don't, just don't. Don't even hesitate, just get a new doctor. He's rude, arrogant, superficial, and worst of all he spends the entire 10 minutes of time he gives you staring at the computer. Doesn't answer my questions, doesn't remember me from the last visit, and doesn't care what I have to say.
overall this guy seems alright. his grasp of the english language is a bit lacking, but what can you expect. he can come off as an **** but i think he might just be stressed sometimes. he could be a bit more easy going. he seems to be knowledgable enough about medical related stuff.
What a jerk! I just moved here and was in for a new patient consultation. This guy started in on how he is very strict about prescriptions and won't prescribe anything if another doctor has written a script in the last 30 days. He took one look at my medication for depression and wanted to change the dose that I was taking. I didn't even say anything about my depression because it is under control!! He just randomly decided that I should take less of the medication. He also would not listen to my health history and refused to look at information contained in my chart because, as he said, "You doctor had their ways and I have my ways." Sorry guy.... I am not looking for a tear-down-re-do.... I am just looking for a new family doctor. There was another patient that I met outside whom he had just "fired" as a patient. He said she had too many health problems! WHAT??? This doctor is in his own little world doing things "his way". I definitely don't recommend this doctor for anything.
Aside from having to wait too long for the Dr. to appear, I found him to be very careful, thoughtful, compassionate and considerate. He is not overly 'clinical' but very personal in his approach. He does not hesitate to refer you to a specialist if he feels further analysis is required. I will definitely continue to be a patient of his and have referred family members to him.
He was am average doctor until he took the steps to save my leg due to my own avoidence. By the time I got to him, the blood infection had spread through my whole leg, but he stayed by me until I got to a hospital, x-rayed, admitted, and seen by a plastic surgeon. He really impressed me with his quick and intelligent ability to act in a tough situation. I got 100% care. I also find him very compassionate when in comes to stress and mental health disorders.
