Location Information


Dr. Kocharla's aunt suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis, so growing up she witnessed how suffering and pain can impact all aspects of a person's life. This inspired her to become a doctor, because she knew she wanted to help relieve the pain, discomfort and suffering of others. Outside of the office, Dr. Kochlara enjoys traveling, cooking international cuisines, reading and spending time with her two daughters.

396 Patient Satisfaction Reviews

The ratings displayed below are an average of all patient responses to the Clinician and Group Practice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey.

The CG-CAHPS survey is used by hospitals and medical practices across the country and was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Bronson Healthcare’s CG-CAHPS survey is administered by Press Ganey. Surveys are sent to randomly selected Bronson patients after they have had an appointment with a Bronson physician in an outpatient practice setting.

The comments and star ratings you see here reflect the views and opinions of patients who have completed and returned their surveys. Press Ganey independently compiles the data and forwards it to Bronson to be posted.
