I have visited twice andveach time l receive wonderful, accurate care. The office is filled with caring, smiling people who seem to genuinely care about each patient that walks thru the doors of Sunshine Medical Center. Yesterday my husband saw Dr. Soordal and he thought he was terrific. We are both extremely happy with both our doctors & look forward to many years of excellent care from each of them.

I would recommend Dr. Prakash to anyone who needs a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable, and he takes all the time with you that you need to understand what you discussed during the visit and what your treatment plan will be. He is also very kind.

Dr. Soordal Prakash has been my primary care physician for more than 15 years. He is an eminently qualified physician. Before he got his medical license in the US as a primary care physician, I understand that he was a licensed surgeon in UK. He is a kind and knowledgeable physician. He answers all of patients' questions patiently. I should know because my wife is a retired Anesthesiologist. He has treated my diabetes. He gave me sound advice when I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. Thazhathu V. Narayanan

Dr. Prakash has been my primary physician for over ten years. Through this time, he has helped me deal with a multitude of issues. No matter how busy he may be, he is always very detail oriented and thorough. I have great confidence in the decisions he makes regarding my health. Dr Prakash has an approach to family medicine that is hard to find today. I recently moved out of Sarasota, but am very willing to drive over an hour and a half for his care. I feel very fortunate to have found him.

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Soordal Prakash and am so glad to have found him. He always takes time to listen and answer my questions. The depth of his knowledge and his extensive clinical training is very evident in his explanations. I trust him with the care of my family and would recommend to those looking for a primary care physician.

The front office staff is terrible. They lie and schedule appts so the wait time is never less than one hour. It can even stretch to two hours. The chairs in the doctor's examining room were dirty and stained. It was a terrible experience every time I was there.

Had telephone call about problems with aging mother. He had not answered three phone calls about serious side effects of sleep medication. Doctor seemed impatient. Within minutes of ending the call, my mother received a call from the doctor's office saying they were sending a social worker to get power of attorney. This was not what I agreed to. I called back to the office three times. All three times they hung up the phone on me. Absolutely unbelievably unprofessional. I was shocked. So was the home health aide present when my mother received the call.

Dr. Prakash is knowledgeable, thorough and works with the patient for the best treatment. She explains everything and answers every question. She is patient and really cares about the patient. If she doesn't know something she will look it up, not cover it up. She is never rushed and does not make me feel rushed. I have seen her for about six years now and am very pleased. She's a gem.

Inadequate customer service, poor beside manner, ineffective communicator and poor control over his front office staff and policies. Tends to make decisions regarding rules on the fly. He will, however, bill you and your insurance company without hesitation. If you're fond of spending an unnecessary amount of time in his waiting room only to be told to go to the Health Department for your needs, this is the doctor for you. Good luck with that.

The doctor is great but his office staff aren't. We are continuing to be charged for a bill that was paid and we even gave them proof of the payment including the cleared payment. When you bring this up to the person who handles the billing- she just hangs up on you. Very, very poor service which is too bad as the doctor is good but it isn't worth the stress of dealing with the office staff.

Dr. Shanthi Prakash has been my PCP for at least 10 years. She is everything you would expect your PCP to be. She listens, gives you full attention, and assures you understand. She is supportive and encouraging. If she is not available, you can see her husband and partner who is equally as great. I highly recommend this doctor and practice!

Dr. Soordal Prakash is extremely knowledgeable and outstanding at diagnosis. For example, his diagnosis of severe arm pain of being a pinched nerve and not a neck problem was dead on and his treatment worked without needing more severe treatments. He has removed skin cancers on my legs quickly and effectively. He and his wife, Dr. Shanthi Prakash are a very effective team. She is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. btw, their nurse always tests my bp. I doubt the negative reviewer

Basic physical did NOT include blood pressure or temp reading. I had a severe skin rash. This man did not even look at my skin or ask me to open my shirt or show him the rash which covers my entire body from neck to ankle. Told him I had positive HepC test but no symptoms. He had an assistant palpitate my liver. The doctor himself did not lay a hand upon me. It was when his trainee poked me they noticed the rash for which zero concern was expressed. Prescribed zero medicine for rash. Awful.

I feel so well guided by both doctors - they truly listen and take into consideration present circumstances. It's truly a blessing that we have landed in their care.
