    Dr. Narra's background in gerontology is exactly what I was looking for but didn't know when I selected her.

    I think Dr. Narra is terrific. Our in person appointments are very productive. She is caring listens well and I like her holistic approach to health care. What I have trouble with is communication through the web portal. I understand that the health care system is very strained right now and triage is conducted. However recently I have emailed Dr. Narra with simple questions only to receive inadequate responses from nurses. As mentioned earlier I thought I was getting a physical only to learn at the conclusion of the appointment that it was a consultation. I will have to schedule an additional appointment for a Pap smear. Frankly I'm a pretty low maintenance patient. I'm beginning to think that I should call the office instead of communicating through the web portal.

    May 24, 2023
    I had asked how soon will my file be ready for the next step she said as soon as we were done she enter her notes and be set sounded pretty immediate. Come to find out it was not ready till the end of night and wasnt able to move forward till the following morning (today) which is frustrating in the sense that my doctor lied to my face I specifically asked only that one question and she did not follow through with what she said next time be honest and just say it should be ready in 24 hrs or whatever but dont make me believe this getting done faster than it is especially when you see im worried about this consider your patients mental state and emotional state dont you think?

    For an annual wellness check no blood test was ordered. Dr. Narra said that she will put everything on my chart -- it has been 8 days since our appointments and there is nothing on my chart. So I feel the need to see another doctor for this wellness check.

    Dec 10, 2022
    Unusual physical exam. Other than the blood draw the only "exam" was looking at a problem that I brought up. The doctor didn't listen to my heart or conduct any examination at all. I was stunned. This was described as a Medicare Annual check up so I guess that's all they pay for (?). I left feeling I need to find another doctor not affiliated with UCSF to Conduct an actual physical exam. I hope there isn't any underlying medical conditions that I'm experiencing that are not indicated by the blood draw because that was all the exam I received. I could get better service from Kaiser.
