Dr. Bandla was the first doctor who was able to diagnose and treat my sleep apnea. I had been searching for the issue that was causing my health problems. After meeting with Dr. Bandla one time, he felt confident it was sleep apnea. He then helped me expedite my sleep study to get onto the CPAP, so that I could have treatment while helping my sister after her surgery in Oregon. He is my hero! Now I don't have any of those weird symptoms.

Relaxed, thoughtful, considerate.

Amazing experience with Dr. Bandla - very different than my experience at [...], thank God!

While this provider is good during appt.'s - His follow-up is VERY BAD. In the past he's not responded to follow up emails, nor followed up with results, refilling prescriptions.

[...] no problem!!

[...] doctor recommended doubling evening dose of sleep med even though doctor was told that lower dose resulted in extreme grogginess next day, inability to wake in morning. So, didn't make sense to me. I didn't ask about this, that part is my responsibility.

Doctor forgot to relay information that was discussed in the consultation to the nurse and she was about to send me home with the incorrect sleep study equipment.

This Dr. Could be a great example for others to learn from as far as behavior and office courtesy along with great care.

It takes a very long time to get an appointment even as an existing patient.

I was having difficulty breathing while using the cpap, and was difficult to find some one to ask for help.
