Am asked to fill out updated forms online before visits. They are extremely long and can be arduous to fill out. Don't like to do it every time. They need to be shortened or something.

Everything from having my vitals taken before and after the visit with Dr. Venigalla, to the comprehensive exam Dr. V gave me and the discussion we had concerning old and new health issues, was professional, respectful, and pleasant.

It was a good appt. and Dr. Venigalla was right on the subject - The appt. is a follow up for blood count.

Was able to describe my issues in full without being discounted, cutoff, or patronized. Feel that the doctor is helping create long term health care plans with me rather than just a shallow response to the current visit.

The provider seems to be highly competent, thorough, and careful. The provider has a somewhat "distant" manner which I have learned to respect. Some patients would, no doubt, respond better to a provider with a "warmer" approach.

I have a very difficult time having a blood draw.I was unhappy to learn my cholesterol lab was not included. This was not the first time specific labs were not included such as magnesium, sodium, potassium, etc. Very disappointing. I try always to check to make sure they are included in my lipid panel.

Evidently due to a change in the MA, my Prolia shot appointment was overlooked. When I called in, I was given an appointment as soon as the shot would be available. It takes a couple of weeks for the Clinic to receive the shot. Lab tests were ordered, and the Dr worked me in. This time, the MA made my appointment for 6 months ahead in order for this mix up not to happen again. Dr asked me to call Clinic to order Prolia 2 weeks before my appointment, also.

Dr. Venigalla has a "no nonsense," professional approach. She wastes no time and rarely engages In informal dialogue. However, I have always found her to be well Informed about my health history, to exhibit great concern for determining possible underlying reasons for symptoms, and to be - from the standpoint of my largely uninformed ability to judge - very knowledgeable. She is, In her way, "friendly" and compassionate. I especially appreciate her prompt responses to questions and concerns I sent via My Heath. Thank you for asking.

I know my provider sees a LOT of patients. I also know we are still in the midst of a pandemic and staffing shortages are real and there just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. Considering all of this and giving as much grace and understanding as I can, I did feel my appointment was extremely rushed and my concerns were heard and quickly given a "remedy" to try. I had two main concerns I wanted addressed that I let my provider know ahead of time in the comments when I made the appointment. Those were addressed but no further questions were asked about my previous health history or if I had any other concerns not listed in my comments. My provider seemed a little surprised I was there to talk about Issues not related to what I have previously been in for, as though I only have one health problem that can be focused upon at once. It just felt somewhat impersonal and I'm curious if the interventions offered/prescribed are somewhat of a band-aid on the root of some of my issues. The only consideration I appreciate is that they wanted me to make a follow-up appointment to see if the interventions were supporting improvement in my areas of concern, and I do plan to be more direct with my needs and share beyond the issues on my "list".

I had to cancel an appointment the same day due to illness. I left a message on providers assistants voicemail. Later I got a message from a receptionist that was rude, and said I was a no-show. I called at 8:02 am to cancel, and no one answered so I left a message with the assistant. I went back to sleep after that due to not feeling well.

I want a doctor that will relate to me as a person not just my statistics. I already know my weight, BP, cholesterol - what about me as a person. Also every receptionist and scheduler person at Legacy Meridian Park is impersonal and rude.

Dr. Venigalla is amazing! She remembers my issues on a consistent basis. She is cautious when prescribing medications but listens to what my reaction is to various ones and always tells me why she is prescribing them or ceasing to prescribe them. I try to make my appointments for follow up before I leave the office so don't always have to rely on the phone. Dr Venigalla is the best primary care doctor I've had and I'm [age removed] so I've had a few!

This was by far the best visit I've ever had. I love the check in online process so I didn't have to stress checking in. Usually checking in the receptionist is kind enough but it's really easy to over hear conversations and that makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. The assistant was SOoooooSweet! She really was caring and so understanding and me. I knew she cared about me even though we just met, she needs a raise for being able to keep me calm. Ptsd Is Im my life so keeping me at a level I can comprehend what Is being said Is no shorty If a Miracle. Doctor Venigalla Is always great with me but this time everything went so well before seeing her that I was more calm and able to process more of our appointment. She Is a fabulous doctor with a fabulous team! Thank you!

Lab work was a disaster. I told the young lady not to draw blood from my arms because other doctors, nurses, Red Cross, EMTs, Firemen, etc. Were not able to do it successfully. They tried numerous times and inflicted pain on me. Sometimes, they jiggled the needles under my skin. Boy, that hurt like hell. Thankfully, using a butterfly needle on my hands work. I seem to have more visible veins on my hands. I asked the young lady In your lab to use a butterfly needle and she said they don't have any because of the supply chain Issue and proceeded to do it on my arms. Of course, it did not work. She's not the first, but they all think they are better than the others. She gave up and asked for a more senior person for assistance. I told the senior person that I can come back another time when they have the butterfly needles. The senior person told me then that they have butterfly needles. Why did that young lady lie to me. She did not listen to me though I told her that many doctors, nurses, EMTs and firemen couldn't do it. I was really nice about it too. A number of years ago, I said to one of your lab attendants to do it on my hand and he did. He did it with the regular needle for the arm and it hurt like hell. Found out later that he was not supposed to do that. I think he felt insulted that I told him not to do it on my arm. They all seem to have an ego and think they are better than others. You know, it is not about them but me. I just am not blessed with big veins on my arms. They like to hide! Please put on my medical record that blood should be drawn with butterfly so I don't have to go through this EVERY freaking TIME! Sorry if I am being overly dramatic...

Had to be seen twice and wish these new meds of predisone were prescribed sooner due to level of pain for past week and half. I hope the charges are not crazy high for these visits as insurance does not cover costs due to high deductible. Had to do follow up because more has been needed in finding condition that is caustig disruption at this time.Sometimes it does feel like you get bounced around to add charges at patients cost. I do value the care given by my primary doctor & Thank you for that.
