Personal Information

I have a strong passion for medicine. I have had opportunities to train and practice medicine in three different countries and get to know great people from different backgrounds. These experiences have helped me shape my career and do my best as a physician.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, arts and crafts (especially beading and jewelry making). I love living in Pacific Northwest with its abundant natural beauty.

Dr. Krishnaiah is my favorite. She knows me very well, whenever I feel panic for few procedures she makes sure that I take time to set myself. She even doesn't hesitate to cancel that procedure on that day if I seem not ready. I adore her for that and I definitely recommend my friends and family to her.

She ignored the regular checks I go thru - rectal examination, testicular examination and urinalysis.

She was not using her time for my examination instead she kept talking about her family & wasted my time. I don't think that was professional.

I have only met with this doctor virtually and so far for fairly easy appointments. She seems quite competent and I do like that she doesn't talk down to me. Her approach appears to be methodical which I appreciate. Overall I think she will do nicely.

I haven't been with this provider for very long, so they don't have much background on me yet. Just recently got medical records from previous provider.

The doctor did not order a complete blood panel even though I requested it. I wanted my thyroid and hormone levels checked. She said I have to a make an appointment for a physical even though she had no solution to why I have a medical condition problem and only prescribed a drug that makes me sleepy and I will not take it - it is not a solution to an underlying problem
