Ratings for Dr. Sivakumar Reddy
I have been seeing Dr. Reddy for 5 years. After remission of one cancer, unfortunately a completely unrelated cancer has been diagnosed. He works closely with the other doctors on your treatment team and has helped me also with issues unrelated to my cancer. He is very warm, spends ample time answering my questions, and shows genuine concern for the whole person. I once commented on a family problem and at my 6 month follow up, he asked how things were going. I have never had a doctor show that kind of concern before.
It took a bit getting use to Dr Reddy, but by 2nd or 3rd visit I realized that he truly cares. He made it clear that I needed to quit smoking (Duh) but when I returned & told him I had quit he was so touched he had tears in his eyes. He wasn't the first doc to tell me to quit but his genuine concern got through to me. He has seen me through cancer to complete remission, for that I'm so grateful. He is a wonderful Doctor.
I have been seeing Dr. Sivakumar Reddy for 3 1/2 years. He is excellent. He takes plenty of time with me every visit, isvery patient and interested in my .well being. He keeps me informed as to my MDS condition and answers all my questions. Ans
Very difficult to communicate with and charges for are exorbitant. He sent me for blood work at Sutter Labs part of which was sent to another lab in North Carolina and I'm still trying to straiten out for over a year now. He sent me for blood work that totaled over $4000. and he or his staff didn't even mention it could be kind of expensive! I think the Dr. is competent but I could never recommend him or the Sutter Group!!
I saw him after my doctor retired for follow up of Breast cancer, he took about 10minutes with me and charged saying he did a detail exam $411.00, all he did was to feel my neck, didn't even examine my breasts, lungs or heart. My previous doctor used to charge $72.00.All I can say is, he is very greedy, not competent, worst in the group, charges very high,does not care about patients and I highly recommend staying away from him.
Very difficult to reach the office. If you call during business hours, you still may notget to speak to anyone in the office. The front desk is very slow granted they are busy. many times they are taking care of office work and are not available to help you. Dr Reddy is busy but he could do a much more thorough job especially since many patients lives depend on his words. He is very brief and does not explain scan results at all. Kind ma but not personable. When discussing cancer, he speaks as if you have a cold and as if it is just a normal every day thing. We came to get Petscan results and he left a page out in the frontThe Staff is kind.
Dr. Reddy is the most kind and intelligent doctor we saw during my mom's 2 yr. battle with lymphoma. He truly cares about the whole patient and his or her family. We were treated with the upmost respect and are very grateful she was in his care.
This Doctor should not be practicing medicine. He is completely unqulified. "Standard of Care" medicine doesn't apply to stage 4 colon cancer with no family history. Stay away if you want a fighting chance. Good bedside manner wont give you extra days with those who love you.
