Dr. Chellappa and her nurse, Sheena have been wonderful throughout the years. They are friendly, very professional, knowledgeable and are very trustworthy. Dr. Chellappa already sees all my family and extended family members. I would not hesitate to refer her to other friends and family as well. We are lucky to have her as our FAMILY physician. — Sheena is always on top of everything- she’s the BEST!

So I have been here at Ames only for the past six months or so and I have I just turned 50. So, you know, that the number of doctors visits is just going up exponentially because there are things that I need to take care of but I could not have imagined the level of professionalism and the efficiency in service anywhere else. Appointment with doctors in a matter of days. Urgent Care. Same day prescription. See the doctor. Go pick up your prescription in 15 minutes. It is exemplary the level of Care and service that McFarland Clinic is providing to its patients. I'm really really, really thankful.

Dr. Chellapa was so helpful. My regular doc, Alyson Vosberg, was not working today, and Dr. Chellapa saw me. She paid close attention to my history and my notes. I couldn't even talk because I had lost my voice due to my viral infection and she read my notes off my phone and asked me yes or no questions and allowed me to only talk when necessary. She is the epitome of an accommodating doctor!
